Why I HATE Blogging

unnamed (11)

I hate Blogging. I really really do. What else can I say ? Every time I hold a pen and the fluid that flows across the pages speaking my heart out, baring my soul into words, confessing the things I myself at times run away from, what more can you expect from me to do, than hate ? Blogging makes me one with my ideal self, my current self, my vulnerable self and my dream self. It puts me in front of a mirror and at the same time makes me dream of changing myself to be better in everything I do.

Every time there is a whirlwind of emotions, I HAVE to write. Every time something moves me deeply, I HAVE to find a notepad to scribble it down and etch it permanently in words. Every time there is something I can not say in person, I HAVE to say it through a blog to convey my unspoken words. Every time I am down or writhingย  in pain, I HAVE to write, to soothe the pain and heal the wound.

Writing has been therapeutic to me. I pour my heart out in form of words. Writing has given me wings to fly. To fly out of cages, into the clear blue skies. Writing makes me smile, writing makes me cry. It brings out the unshed tears, messing up the ink written words in my diary. It anchors my restless soul and it also lets me dream without any fear. It gives me power, power to bring happy endings. Power to spread love and joy. Power to give hope and courage. It helps me touch lives. It has helped me find myself, while searching for someone else..

Blogging helped me make friends. Friends across borders. It helps me understand different perspectives and value diversity. It makes me feel loved and gives me an opportunity to love unconditionally by embracing the food for thought I get to read from my friends here.

Writing has helped me make peace with my own self when I am caught in self conflicting emotions. It makes me contemplate deep and ponder on thoughts like never before. Writing has made me find hope and courage. It brings warmth on chilly nights with a cup of cold coffee by my side. It made me embark on a mission, on a journey. A journey which has no end. A journey leading to paths unknown, with encounters to cherish and learn from. It has made me realize that it all is about the journey and never the destination.

“This world has lost its glory, let’s start a brand new story; now, my love. You think, that I don’t even mean, a single word I say….. It’s only words.. And words are all of have, to take your heart away….”

Yes, I hate Blogging ! Because its only words, and words are all I have to take your heart away.. And I am unaware, I am unsure if my words reach out to you. If they touch you as deeply as the echoes of my love. If they can make your smile, dream and ponder. I am unable to access the impact. That makes me hate Blogging even more.

But this is a different kind of hate. Kind of a love – hate relationship between two strangers, who eventually fall head over heels, madly in love with each other. A kind of hate which makes me grow. A kind of hate which is not bitter, but makes butterflies flutter around me when my heart sings unplugged. A hate where in I seek revenge, by trying to be a better version of myself every single day. This is why I hate Blogging.

~ I hate you, like I love you

  2. Aw, glad to be a part of your space. And yes, your words do have an impact. It’s the uncertainty which kills you, not blogging. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Blogging soothes me. Not blogging in itself, but writing and pouring it out, as you say. The calm, the satisfaction you get after typing the last word feels liberating. It feels SO good. โ™ฅ ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. It seems to me that there are two kinds of people who write…those who want to be writers and those who are writes. You are the latter because you have to write. It helps you not only to communicate but also to process what you feel. And yes, the challenge is to communicate what you feel and โ€œtake our hearts awayโ€, but this is part of art. It is like how I try to make an image that shows you what I see and tell you about my experience.

    I feel the sameโ€ฆthat blogging helps to make friends and get new perspectives. It is one of my favorite parts of blogging. Iโ€™m happy that weโ€™ve become friends through this medium.

    Cheers =)

  4. I love this topic on writing and blogging, the moment I saw the title, it was intriguing and it questioned me, I wanted to immediately check what is that one can hate about blogging…the way you have build the dialogue with self is really beautiful and there are lines which are profound and very powerfully written.

    For me here few lines which I want to highlight before I can dwell a little more on the topic…I couldn’t have put in any better words. Words counts and meaning matters…

    “It anchors my restless soul and it also lets me dream without any fear…”
    “It has made me realize that it all is about the journey and never the destination…”
    “A kind of hate which is not bitter, but makes butterflies flutter around me when my heart sings unplugged…”

    Yes, the combination of writing and the blogging platform is magic come true, for me I have mentioned in many of my posts that it is like a magic carpet, the moment you are on it, it takes you places and makes you meet such wonderful friends and you are engaged in such lovely conversations on such wide topic, it takes your imagination to different world, and your understanding and appreciation of the world changes and changes fundamentally. It is not easy to fathom it’s impact unless one dives into it and swims through the blogosphere…and such a fascinating topic I can just go on and on and on…

    Great to have discovered your blog and hope to have more beautiful discussion…

    • Welcome to DecodingHappiness Nihar ๐Ÿ™‚
      I’m equally glad to found your blog. You write so thoughtfully on writing that it indeed is so thought provoking..

      Thank you so much for your kind words and encouragement. . I’m happy to meet someone for whom writing is as much a lovely journey onto a magic carpet as for me.. I really love this idea.. Like we’re sitting on a magic carpet travelling the world, seeing places, making pals.. I have made some really nice friends who post such great photographs, write soulful poems, inspirational thoughts and so much more. . It is one of the best experiences to be a part of such an amazing Blogging community. An experience words fail to describe the beauty and standing at a distance we can hardly fathom it’s depth. . This is a wonderful medium to make friends without Borders and widen our horizons..

      Thanks for giving me such heart warming feedback. . Look forward to more interactions my friend ๐Ÿ™‚

      • My pleasure Himali to be here.

        Nothing could have happened better to writers who have understood the power this platform and how one needs to transform and aligning with the new requirement if life and living, writing was lying at one corner and the widen gap between the writer and reader was never making the life of an aspiring writer any better.

        I always felt there should not be any barriers and boundaries between the writer and reader, what is purpose of writing if there no readers who understand and appreciate the perspective that a writer wants to bring to the world…there was this glass ceiling which had kept the reader and writer apart, blogging has come a panacea and broken this glass ceiling and taken writers to the doorsteps of readers and there many readers who have never written have started writing brilliantly, I always said each one of us have story to share and each of these stories unique and nobody else in the world can share that feeling and experience…

        Yes we all learn the art of putting it into the right frame and choosing the right words comes with experience and practice…
        indeed looking forward to many more…

  6. You have similar feelings as I do. I feel there is a complicated relationship between bloggers. You build trust but today one of the people I liked and respected is showing a little prejudice. I have chosen to unfollow her. Sad separating but cannot like intolerance!

    • It happens.. but I think you’ll be having many many more readers who love reading your work.. so its okay to have some haters.. Keep writing and be positive ๐Ÿ™‚ We’re all here for you love โค Xx


  7. Sometimes I hate blogging too. Sure, like you, there are countless times where I feel that I need to write down my thoughts and feelings. I feel a sense of relief after that…and then when it comes to editing what I’ve written and basically tighten it all before putting it on my blog, that’s when it gets frustrating. So many questions then – does what I write make sense? Do I need to add a few more lines to explain myself? ๐Ÿ˜€

    There are times when I want to talk about a certain topic on my blog but don’t know what to say about it…equally frustrating ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Hello Mabel, welcome to DecodingHappiness ๐Ÿ™‚

      Yea same goes with me a lot if times . Once I have a rough draft ready, editing everything, finding suitable images to go along, finding correct words ro express certain thoughts. . It takes a toll on time.. sometime I write till 2 am and then go to bed !! ๐Ÿ˜‰ But that’s the pleasure when you see your final work on the blog it feels really good.. hard work pays off eventually ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. I guess you have found true love.

    ” Writing is an emotion, a stone waiting to be etched, a shore waiting to be touched by sea, a sky waiting to be painted”.
    Not many who contemplate and write have found the love for writing.
    I’m in the journey, but you have reached the shore.

    Keep writing. Amazing blog.

  9. Damn. Your thoughts. And the way you pen them down. I wish i really could have had that much of an ability. Too much love for this post. And the highlight of this post:- that love hate thing. Falling head over heels in love with it. It’s analogous to a dilemma. You’d want want to be with it and also wish you could be away from it. Beautifully portrayed it!
