Your Silence is Deafening 

I know I’ve been quiet here lately. I was doing so good, scheduling a post for every Sunday. Then the last couple weeks or so (Okay, okay – 3 months) I just haven’t had anything to say. 

I mean… I have things to say. Things I could talk about. But even those things, even things I would normally be passionate about, have not been able to spark even the slightest bit of fire in me. 

I have been thinking a lot about love the last few days. Mostly that a relationship is not love. A relationship can build love, it can have love, it can show love, grow love. But a relationship is not love. So when a relationship ends, love does not always end with it. 

I am sad today. For no reason and all the reasons. And I am happy that I am sad. 

My heart wants to hurt. It would be so much better to feel something, anything. I keep falling into a dull numbness. 

So, today, I am grateful for feeling sad. That is okay, too.

About ashleekarin

Every Sunday I tried to post updates since I succeed in camping the doorstep of the world during a 110 day road trip around the USA; The Roadside Bears blog was then brought head first into the internet world (changed to ashleekarin.wordpress.com). Included are the details of our adventures and how we are doing, as well as tips on how we made a road trip around the USA happen. It’s important to pursue your dreams to the end, even if you end up with nothing. After all, you only have one life to live; go big or go home. Join me vicariously through this blog – AshleeKarin.wordpress.com – and experience the adventure of my life. Viewer discretion is advised, as you will most likely witness a very hungry person freezing as they sleep in their car. I will always be planning the next great adventure – so don’t miss out, subscribe to the blog today! XoxO (big kiss little hug little kiss big hug ), Ashlee Karin

  1. I never thought being sad was a bad thing persay, makes you think, reflect, grow etc. And often times we don’t give our mind that chance, it just ends up gogo, keep up the routine.

    • I agree, B! I think emotions are meant to be felt and experienced. I also think it is important not to push those emotions off or dismiss them. (And equally important not to be consumed by them). Routine seems to drown out emotions. “What is this feeling?! This isn’t part of the process!” Lol.

  2. Love is the most brilliant, beautiful, painful, horrible, worst, best thing there is on this Earth.
