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

Second chances are always appreciated in our lives whether it’s a second chance at a relationship or a career or to rebuild. I can honestly say I have gotten a few second chances in life especially after my Suicide attempt in 2007. At that point in my life which I was in my mid-twenties I […]
Are we becoming a cashless society? When was the last time you used cash to pay for something? The reason I ask is because it seems to me that these days we are increasingly moving towards becoming a cashless society. The continuing threat of Coronavirus has no doubt contributed in accelerating the demise of notes […]
It gets to this time of the year and there’s always a whole lot of talk about it being “the most wonderful time of the year.” However, for a lot of people, Christmas is hard. It’s a time that reminds them of those that aren’t there with them. Christmas reminds them of all that they’ve […]
