Very Personal Post about why I've been a bit quiet lately

So this is kinda hard for me to write. Let me start off by saying that I completely identified with one post that Jamie @ The Perpetual Page-Turner wrote about two weeks ago, you can read it here. About blogging when you aren't feel like yourself or when you're not in a happy place. And I do this thing where when something happens in my life, I retreat and regroup. I avoid social media and other social activities and just hole up until I feel a bit like myself again.

Which is exactly what I did 2,5 weeks ago when my parents told me they were getting a divorce. The first week I spent on the phone who both my parents and my brother and crying and having intense conversations with my family that left me emotionally exhausted. It hasn't been an easy time. I am essentially ok with it and I understand that in the end it will be good for both of them, but it still makes me sad and it's a bit of an adjustment.

But I'm incredibly lucky that I have a supportive, loving boyfriend and amazing friends who are there for me and who provide a shoulder to cry on and distraction, whichever I need at the moment. So I'm doing ok, though I foresee some tough moments. We're all slowly getting used to the idea and while I don't live with my parents, it's a weird idea that in a little while they won't live in the same house anymore or be together.

And I am very thankful that they are both healthy!

So while this blog is mostly my happy place in which I can blisfully discuss books with you guys, I couldn't not talk about this here. Know that I love all you guys and am trying to get back to writing posts and commenting more!

  2. Aw, I'm so sorry to hear that ): If there's anything I can do for you, let me know! My parents divorced a few weeks ago, so we're basically in the same boat. It's very hard - I'm glad to hear your boyfriend and friends are so supportive (:

  5. Awww, Daisy, I'm so sorry. It will probably be for the best in the end, but you're right - it's a tough time and will take a lot of getting used to. I hope that you can continue to get some comfort from the fact that you have a lot of blogosphere friends thinking about you! *HUGS*

    1. Awww, thank you Sarah! <3 I'm slowly getting used to the idea and I'm convinced it'll be for the best, I'm already seeing it be better for one of them, so at least that's something.

  9. Oh, Daisy--I'm sorry to hear that. It's understandable that under these circumstances, even if your head accepts something logically, your heart often has a hard time catching up. I think we all go through periods where we need to step away from everything and take a breather, but just know that the community's always here and waiting for you when you decide you feel like easing in again.

    <3 to you.

    Oh Daisy, I'm sorry to hear. I know it's hard to talk about personal stuff in this medium, to decide how much to share, and it's understandable that you'll want to regroup. Just know we are sending you lots of hugs and good wishes.

    My auntie was a firm believer that everything happens for the best, so let's hope this is the case. :)

  11. Sorry to hear that Daisy. I can imagine that it's very tough to deal with, even more so in some ways as an adult that a child. I'm glad that you've got supportive people around you to help you as much as possible.

  13. Very sorry to hear that! I can completely understand; I have gone through something fairly similar recently. It can almost be shocking how emotional it can be even as an adult child. Take the break if you need it!
