      I believe what you need to do is stay out of the forums for awhile and just write like many of us have been doing. Many of us go through the same thing, but it will be just fine. smile

      hey you just got here sad

      i sort of understand you i mean lately the forums are kind of boring..the same threads bumping up and up and up and some so-called new people that you can tell are just regulars in disguise, so you have to wonder just who you are talking to these days.

      well, i hope you feel better anyway.

      Breathe in, breathe out, move on..

      I'm not sure why ya feel like this, but hell, it happens to everyone.  A few months ago, before I joined here, I had so many articles to write about that I didn't even know where to begin.  - Thing is, I love to write, and I love to research history.  But, at this point in time and even though I was getting paid for it, it just completely exhausted me.  Once I finished the articles and took a few days off, well, I was back at it again.. and then I found this place.  In between writing articles, I'll come here and write about things that I truely enjoy.

      The key is this: Do something that you enjoy, and once you start to see the enjoyment going out of that thing, take a break.  If writing is your passion, you'll be ready to pick up the hub-pencil again in no time.

      Still, don't disappear completely - we'll miss you too much.

      She obviously doesn't realize we're like the mafia.  Once you're in you never get out.  We just pull you right back in.

    sleep. turn off your computer, go for a walk and make yourself a promise you won't enter hp's or make any decisions for a full day.

    we all have our off days, why do you think I like joking so much, kills the depression, dark clouds hang over all of us some times, but we must let the sun shine through, walking away from a place where you have friends and people who care dosnt help, stay, cut back a little, but stay, love you loads xxxxxx smile

    Sa Toya, you're allowed a 10 minute break every 2 hours. (That's what they say where I work.)
    smile

    I think, in this case, Lyrics' advice is very groovy. But at least come back soon enough to harrass us all.

    Hey, Sa Toya....jokes apart, don't give up on HP yet! You're one of my favorite people around (not to mention your great hubs!)  and it would be a pity if you left. Take a break from forums yes,  but try other avenues/writing options too....at the same time leaving your account intact here.

    And I bet after a little break, the 'withdrawal' symptoms will bring you right back to us!

    meanwhile, here's a hug!! smile

    I belong to many forums, boards and places. It's a good idea not to get too hooked on any place. If your spending hours a day on a forum,,,, well you might want to take a break.

    You can't get a lot of work done if your spending all your time on forums, social sites and so on. Checking in a few times a day is cool, but they can waste a lot of your time. Just my 2 cents. smile

      You are exactly right.
      Yet perhaps so completely naive about all us addicts.
      We don't want to be healthy about it, we want to be further enabled.

      myownworldposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      I agree too....but then these forums are SO MUCH fun....and don't we all do things in life just for fun? How is that a waste of time then? 
      But yes, an excess of anything is bad....hence regular breaks are always a good idea just to 'detoxify' the system! wink

    I've felt like this too. Not because I wasn't making money, or getting input, but because I was distracted elsewhere. For nearly all the beginning and mid December I hardly was active. I wouldn't login for days. smile

    But, I am back~ Writing slow as a turtle as typical.

    Yet, if you are leaving because of emotions...let them pass. Heck, if you need to take a break, fine...but you will be back.

    I tried to poof and failed.
