One of the hardest things to do is find your footing after you’ve lost it. So many things this applies to in life.
When the upheaval happened in the community, I took a huge step back. I just stopped… only occasionally on Twitter, not really writing, and not interacting. In hindsight, I didn’t feel alone just disconnected. It hard getting that back once it’s gone.
I’ll stay connected where I can, reaching out to some people. It’s just been difficult plunging back in. While I’ll read posts, I haven’t gotten the hang of commenting again.
The question I’ve asked myself is should I be making that effort now? Do I even want to anymore?
Keeping a hold of those few people who are dear may be enough for now.
