Why Taking a Step Back Doesn't Make you a Failure

I've never been one to take a step back from dreams, goals, or things that make me happy so when I actively decided to take a break from blogging at the end of February I tried to look at it as a positive thing. Although the looming thoughts of people clicking on my blog to see that it hasn't been updated in months and clicking off in disgust and annoyance had me awake at night at first (tad overdramatic perhaps, but true) I slowly began to realise how prioritising certain things over others and letting things go is much better for my mental health.
