Switched Off

Sometimes it feels like I always have to be on.

Something I've had to learn is that it's not possible. Having a bad day, or negative feelings, or just feeling off sometimes is just normal. We all go through it.

That's the price of admission to the human race.

And it's all right. You can be off. You can be down.

Go ahead and take that moment to yourself. We'll still be here when you're ready.



  1. Thanks for that Xara. So many of us, especially those of us in the online community, feel like we have to maintain our happy or even our angry or sad demeanor, whatever personality we adopted online even if we feel differently. We can be off and still be who we are. Short but still a very wonderful post.

  2. So true, sweetie! So very very true!

  3. So true! A friend once told me that sometimes a person just has to cry. If you try to hold it all in, it will come pouring out at the worst possible time.
