Everyday NhanSense: Each day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.
Day 6’s Topic: Burying the past.
As I restructure this blog to my liking and continue to add more elements, while cleaning up the aspects that I don’t need anymore and whatnot, I came to realize that I have been keeping a lot of things around in an unhealthy way.
I am someone who dreads throwing things away unless I absolutely need to. In fact, I can say without hesitation that I probably cling on to many things, both in real life and online, beyond that of a normal person.
But it had to be done. It may not seem like much on the surface, but I decided to delete the entire “Past Blog Posts” page off this blog. All of the content within the page still exists on this blog, so it’s not like I destroyed the posts themselves with fire.
However, deleting the page itself was quite liberating, I have to say …
Don’t get me wrong, though. A lot of posts on that page are/were in fact important to me in different shapes and forms. I poured my heart and soul into writing out those posts. They may not mean much to a lot of people, but they certainly hold a lot of personal value in my book.
But again, it had to be done. It just had to be done.
For my sake, I needed to think about burying the past. Yes, there were good times reflected in some of those blog posts. There were some crummy times discussed in some posts as well. Regardless of what was showcased in those particular posts, I just had to stop caring about the whole page and just discard it entirely.
