I do this often; I step back from writing and doing some things I love in order to really reflect. Sometimes I write without blogging, and that's okay. When I'm ready to share my thoughts, you get them full force... so here it goes!
Think about it: are you available, wiling and able to be there every time a friend calls? I'm not asking do you WANT to be there, but CAN you be there? Are you in a mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually balanced place in your life to be able to provide substance to the life of another? Are you unblocked in a way that allows you not only to hear, but to listen? Are you open enough to give honest and unbiased opinions? Are you well enough to take on more weight or pressure? Are you able to give hugs when necessary? Consider all of these things before you require the world of someone and ask yourself these questions when somebody you love needs you.
It's important to give myself time to process before I jump to conclusions, pass judgments, or make decisions. I'm trying to be there. I'm trying to let go. I'm trying to forgive. I'm trying to move on. I've been focused on healing so that I can be the support that my loved ones need and so that I can accept the support that I need. They deserve the best parts of me, and better yet, I deserve the best parts of me too.
