Word For Wednesday (W4W) #55


Play along here!

This week’s word is:


I googled the antonym for creativity but could not find a suitable word to describe the utter void I feel lately in terms of writing, crafting, or basically doing anything other than vegging in front of the TV or tackling mundane daily tasks.

I have a compelling desire to create but I lack the drive or inspiration to actually do anything. I am at a loss for how to solve this issue. I worry that my blogs will wither and die if I cannot drag myself out of this slump I find myself in.

I would hate for that to happen. My blogs are my lifeline.

I have stuck been in a depression now for a while and am also struggling daily with a particular issue that I seem unable to conquer. In the words of my very wise friend Feli;

“You’re not going to pull out of your slump till you get proactive. And it doesn’t have to be this. But you need to find something good to do for yourself. And just do it. Stop thinking about it. Do. It.”

That’s tough love right there… that’s real friendship.

Can I? I don’t know. I know I’ve done if before, so it isn’t impossible, but…

Always but…

  1. Feli’s right. But I know how hard it is to summon up the energy to just get up and do something, anything.
    Maybe just a short walk? Take some photos. Write anything, doesn’t have to be for the blog. Use paper and pen if you still want to veg in front of the TV πŸ˜€
    Doodle, or get a colouring book and felt tips. Very therapeutic, or so I’m told πŸ™‚
    Really hope you’re feeling better soon hon.
    Hugs xxx

  2. As someone who struggles with his own state of mind, I also have that creative need, with that lack of creative drive, which makes any writing at times quite difficult. Even if it becomes a chore, keep writing, just create output, it doesn’t always have to make sense to anyone, or be your best work, but most people I have spoken to who write for more than their own amusement say, just keep putting stuff down, the creative spark will come and go, but the therapeutic part of putting words to paper/screen is at least worth the effort.

    I try to write something everyday, not all days are easy, not all things are good but you keep trying.

    Also, are box sets bad now? When did that happen? What are you watching?

  3. Sound advice from your bestie, there. When you’re that low, it’s the hardest thing to make yourself move – to do anything. But you know it will help if you can go outside, breathe some air. Or stay inside and do something creative. Though a box set is a good temporary plaster!
    There’s a lot of us out here who appreciate what you’re going through, sweet, and all send you very much love. Wish I could give you a hug.
    Rest up, but please don’t give up on the blogging – I’d so miss my online pal πŸ™‚

  4. Reading this and nodding my head to every word. There is a fine line between recharging and wallowing and, sometimes no matter how hard we try, we cross that line and then beat ourselves up even more.

    However all-encompassing it sometimes seems, the blackness isn’t everything. There is brightness too in the people who love you, support you and, because they fight the same battles themselves, understand exactly what you are going through.

    Be good to yourself.
