It’s been a while guys hasn’t it… I’m sorry. I haven’t been able to post much content for the past couple month for a variety of reasons, but in my absence, I have been able to think of some new and original ideas to bring to my blog posts on the My Need To Live Website. I am so excited to share the next chapter of my life with you all!
The main reason I’ve been so quiet is due to the fact I wanted to stop posting online for a while. The outcome has made me into a better version of myself. For the past couple of months, I rarely posted on social media, that is, not unnecessarily. If I did want to post something, I did, but I ensured that when I was about to write something online, I considered what others may think about it. Would it hurt them? If so, don’t post it.
By not posting as much on social media, I found that I had a lot less problems. Communicating face to face was a much easier task, and I no longer felt the pressure weighting me down to live up to the expectations social media requires of us. Sure, I would still consider them relevant, maybe I would use a cliche caption for an Instagram photo now and then, but I no longer have the surge to ‘fit in’ as it were. Maybe it’s called growing up, maybe the is it.
I think it has mainly been the recent unfolding of the pandemic engulfing our world as we know it, that has encouraged me to use social media more again, so that I am abed to stay in contact with my friends and family. Of course, it is important to stay in touch with them now more than ever, they may be feeling lonely right now. But, I am still making sure to try realise when enough is enough, and I need to come offline for a bit – finding a balance is key.
I’m glad to be back here now though, I’ve missed this platform. Having somewhere to wrote knowing hopefully I am entertaining or helping or even reassuring someone is enough self gratitude for me.
Love Eleanor xx

Losing one’s job is painful, it can be one of the most destructive events happening in ones life. I should know I have been through a few of them. Most recently I was laid off March 2nd, 2023. An unexpected shock as the organization I worked for gave no indication there would be any form […]
The pain of being laid off is affecting thousands, but mostly in big tech. It saddens me to say I was just laid off and although I did not work or one of the major big tech companies like Twitter, Alphabet and others we were still apart of financial tech. Here is a recent article […]
Happy New Year 2023! What the new year means to me, to you, to the world. It means something different for everyone. Some create resolutions for the new year to be new person, new goals. I am often reminded of when I would attend my local gym, a 24-hour fitness which by the way is […]
