I’m pretty sure some of you have noticed that I’ve been noticeably absent over the last month and a half. I took a break from my work, because of some tragic events that happened in January. I will talk about them later.
While I haven’t been writing, I have been working on behind-the-scenes by attending networking events and talking with various people who want to help out with expanding my business. Other than that, I’ve been bouncing back and forth between depression, hypomania, and mixed episodes. I had to take a break from the world, even though I still was online.
In these last couple of months, I have come to have yet another realization of who my friends and family are. I have realized once again who really has my back and who doesn’t. I’ve seen again who wants to truly work with me and be associated with me, and who is only talk and looking to drain me. I’ve learned a lot. It’s disappointing, but yet it’s eye-opening, but I’m grateful for the people who either stuck with me or came into my life during the storm.
While I’m not here to say that I’m going to be releasing great content every single day (in fact, I’m more interested in writing a few pieces throughout the year and build business), I’m still around. This will not be the last time I step away from the scene; I have to take breaks. My health and overall stability matter more over anything.
It does feel good to get back into the writing because it’s something that I love to do. I love being in the mix of business because sometimes it’s like a high. After all, I studied business.
As I just said, this won’t be the last time I will go on break. It’s important that I step away from the scene for a little while. What I will work on, though, is how long I stay away. It’s important that I don’t stay away for too long because I don’t want people forgetting about what I do and what I have out there.
I’m not fully back, but I’m coming back. I’m still on track to making this an explosive year for my work and for my business.
P.S.- My latest article, and the first article since January, posted yesterday on bphope.com. It’s called “Navigating through Grief While Dealing with Bipolar Disorder“. Check it out.
