Discouraged Big Time

One of the things I love most about Spark is the community. We are all living life and manage here and there to come on and support one another. How great is that!? It is lovely really. I don't know if it is the time of year or maybe just that everyone is just as busy as I have been, but I don't feel a community here anymore. If I am just as invisible here as I am in the real world, then I might as well not waste my time, right? I keep telling myself I am going to put more time into supporting others and I really should and really want to. It is just hard when i feel like people forget I exist the moment I am gone for a little bit. Maybe I am being overly sensitive and just complaining for no reason, but I have spent most of my life being present to people ONLY because I remained in front of their face. I am not doing that anymore! I do plan to touch base with friends here in the near future...likely over my thanksgiving time off.

    I'm sorry that I haven't been there for you as much as I should be. I really do apologize. I have been SO busy dealing with myself and my family lately that I really haven't kept up with Spark People as much as I normally do. I just am almost feeling your way maybe... that I am not as good as others on this site and that if I don't scream that I need attention 24/7 that I will be forgotten too. Thank you for this blog. Please keep me accountable!

    Thanks ladies! This is a busy time of year for most people. As for the last blog was not that long ago. I simply deleted all my other blogs. I know I have not been on much lately as life has been very busy for me as well. And frankly, if someone forgets me while I am gone, they are not worth my time anyway! :)

    Sorry that I haven't been very supportive lately. I've been dealing with some emotional turmoil and haven't been there for my Spark buddies. I'm working on getting my head back to normal but know that I'm always supporting you, even if I can't always "verbalize" it.

    There are millions of people on SP and it's easy for people to get shoved to the side by others that scream "look at me" or put themselves out there more often. I didn't forget you exist, but you aren't there that much babe. Your last blog was December 2010. Almost a year ago...

When the seasons change, people get thrown off track and have difficulty keeping up with themselves, much less everyone around them, but the effort is what counts. Its nothing personally against you, I'm certain. You are a gem :) Those that actually took the time to get to know you, notice when you aren't here. If they didn't get to know you yet, they are missing out :) XOXOXO Glad you are still here with us!
