Should I Take A Break? Will It Make Me Feel Better?

Hello everyone!

I’ve been thing about writing this post for a long time, but I think I need to do it.

Should I take a break? Will it make me feel better?

Honestly, I don’t know but I think I will take break. That doesn’t mean I’ll stop blogging, bookstagramming or reading. It’s just that I need a break; I have a lot going on right now. My classes are crazy, and I have a lot of work to do. I knew doing a master’s degree would be hard, but man… it’s too much. Don’t get me wrong, I love what I’m studying but I worry to much about classes; if I’m doing good or if I’m not, and because of that I’m having anxiety almost every day. It makes me feel so bad, guy… I need to learn how to worry less.

On the other hand, I’ve been feeling that I HAVE to blog, not that I want to and it’s not supposed to be like that. I won’t stop blogging, obviously, but I’ll do it when I feel like it and when I feel that it’s not an obligation. Thinking about classes, being behind on my college work, being behind at blogging, and not reading many books are things that make me sad, stressed, anxious, and maybe depressed (specially the classes). I’m not supposed to feel like this… not again.

I love blogging, reading and studying. The problem is me worrying to much about every single thing about my life. As I said, I won’t stop doing what I like. I’ll read my precious books, and I’ll write book reviews. You can still find me on twitter, instagram and other social medias (links are at the end of each post). I like talking with you guys, and won’t stop doing that.

Maybe I sound stupid, maybe taking a break won’t help, but I feel like I shouldn’t force myself to post three times per week on this blog. I’m going to take things slow to see if I get better because feeling this way it’s making me crazy.

Sorry for bothering with a post like this one. I thought it would be good to let you guys know that maybe I won’t be posting as often as I used to. After all, you are my readers so it’s good to let you know if something’s going to change.

Thank you so much for reading, and thanks in advance for understanding. Until next time, xoxo.

  1. I feel you so much, I have to choose about what I’m gonna do for the next years by the end of this year, and I need to get really good marks to do what I want. But everything is going wrong, I am not okay and I can’t stop thinking about all of this. I’m thinking on stopping bookstagraming and even blogging but aagh I’m so confused😥

    1. I know how you feel. Maybe don’t stop right away, but don’t do it as often as you always do. That’s what I’m going to do because I love blogging and bookstagram, but I feel like I can’t handle everything anymore.

  2. Please don’t apologize for posting this — it’s not a bother at all to communicate how you’re feeling, especially when many of us have or do feel similar things. I took an indefinite hiatus in the summer because blogging didn’t feel fun any more, and it’s only this month that I started to feel inspired and actually want to write. Some days are better than others, but there’s no shame in taking a break when you need to. Blogging is great, but YOU come first. Take care of yourself, friend. ❤

  3. You’re not alone. Studies indicate that individuals in academia–undergrads, grad students, and even faculty–experience high levels of depression, anxiety, feelings of isolation, and the dreaded “imposter syndrome.” If you need a break, take a break! You come first. 🙂

      1. It’s not widely discussed, I think because people are afraid that if they admit they’re struggling others will think they’re not good enough to be in the program. But the reality is that, statistically speaking, the majority of people are struggling. And I think we need to acknowledge that and find ways to change it.

  4. If it’s stressing you out, you should definitely slow down with the blog. Your education is way more important, and we’ll be here when you’re ready to come back! Be happy, be as healthy as you can be!!

  5. Hey, you don’t sound stupid! Everyone needs a break sometime. You’re right… blogging shouldn’t be a chore. It should be something you wanna do. So just do it when you feel like it… when it makes you happy! We’ll all be here for you when you come back or when you do post!!

  6. PS: you’re education and schooling is way more important than blogging. But I’m sure you know that already… ❤️

  7. I feel ya. Adulting is hard and a Masters Degree is no walk on the park.

    But if you say you wont stop blogging, reading, etc. Then its not much of a break.

    I think you just need to focus primarily on what is stressing you the most, and the things you love doing, use them as a way to reward yourself. 🙂

  8. Are you still feeling this way? I think if you aren’t 100% happy, take a step back. I’ve done it before. Kind of gone MIA a bit, I was on sporadically. And its taken me a long time to get back into blogging like I was at the beginning of the year. We’re human. Breaks are nice. I would say my only advice would be to let people know. So that you just don’t vanish. There’s a friend that I used to talk to a lot that went on a hiatus, told people it would be 2 weeks long, and she’s been gone for 3 months…. It’s actually kind of worrying. So, just let people know 🙂
