Should I blog should I not ? that is the question


Writing this after reading a quote from one of Buddha’s saying about believing.

It has been months since I have stopped blogging, if blogging was what I was doing to begin with. All I remember doing was finding a subject that is high on the agenda or something  that catches my attention and write about it lately I have been overwhelmed with so many things that I believed are important, so important that it was hard to choose one from the other. Choosing was not the only problem, the most difficult part was believing in the depth of the matter and as to what level it agrees with my reasoning and conviction above all whether my reasoning are truly what I believe in.
I had asked myself “Does my opinion really matter?” “Who does it matter to?” whether it should really matter and if it is appropriate to believe that it matters.
It requires thinking inwardly to answer these questions. The first question I had for myself was “why do I write and why do I feel like I need to share my view?”, “Is it for the need of narcissistic intention of seeking approval?” maybe it is. Nevertheless, that cannot be a reason because half the time my views are not well calipered to resonate with what majority in my camp think. (That is what I think)
Narcissism, in its lose sense, is something that social network generation all share, it is common illness that we all are willing to tolerate. (Open for criticism)
Again that pushes another question to ponder “What am I bring different to the table? Is it truly a new idea or same old criticism, which apparently does not require any capacity? ”  Therefore, if the answer is yes then what is the point of blogging?  None of this produced certainty to why I should blog.

Who do I blog for anyway? 

The only certainty that I have is that I blog for myself, because I want to vent and I want to grow. I have come to learn that sharing ideas is the best way to grow. It is a self-fulfilling prophecy for growth. You share, you believe, you act upon it , others react that reaction is the result or your feedback which boosts up your belief.
What I have learned is that perspective is not simple and insights are endless, we cannot define what we are by just doing what we have been doing in the past. Our daily rituals determine our commitments but they don’t limits we can believe in. Therefore, the one thing that is important to us at one point may become something of lesser value, in the process importance shift with reasoning.
We keep on evolving and keep on changing, that is the growth process, which is inevitable, but the way we grow is in our minds and hearts. It is a choice we can take.
In all, I decided to start blogging again, share and see what happens.

  2. "...in the process importance shift with reasoning." Sure, but the very fact of "reasoning" and the "about-which" of it--the matter about which reason reasons and spirit craves--remains the same: self! Because I believe your"self" is my"self" too, whatever that "self" comes down to, when you blog for yourself you do it for myself too. Hence, I applaud your comeback.

    1. Thank you very much. I did not think of that way but it is always nice to see someone point to you opening up new views that in other words is the basic notion of my blogging to myself --correction to self. Learning from the reactions.

      Thank you again

  5. 'Narcissism, in its lose sense, is something that social network generation all share, it is common illness that we all are willing to tolerate.' I so love this line as it's so true Emiye and your views matter, to me at least, as they reflect my thinking most of the time. Keep blogging as you are great at it.

    Hi Emi (Mahlet)

    First of all lets say welcome to the web or to your/our blog.

    I have benn looking your blog and I learn so many things from you.

    I know everyone will says to himself/herself why...? As a human being yes this is the nomal feeling. But before starting your blog you already answered that questions and started it. So no more to look to the back. That means whether you are writing for personal benefit or for the others like me, don't stop to write. If you do so it means you are starting to ....

    Write! Write! Write!

  12. It cant be any less of narcissism. Your blog is more about you than ideas."I thought, I feel, in my opinion...I did´´´´me me me" May be it is lack of professionalism. Hope you come to realize that you are way to far from what really matters.
