Adding Some New Things To My Website

Aside from the hours of thinking & talking about NPD I do daily, there has been a LOT going on in my life the last few years. This exacerbates my mental & physical health problems. I realized recently this is ridiculous… I need a break!

I have blog posts & YouTube videos scheduled well ahead of time so I can take time off from those things. But I needed to do more. This brought me to the idea of spending more time crafting since it relaxes me so much. Working on a crafty project also takes my focus so I don’t think about NPD at all.

The crafting thought gave me another idea… add some craft patterns on my website!

Clearly I’m not the only person who needs frequent breaks. Anyone who is healing from narcissistic abuse naturally spends a lot of time reading & thinking about it, which can take a mental & physical toll. If you aren’t doing that, then please start! Whatever helps you to relax & think about something more pleasant than narcissism isn’t important, so long as you do it.

If you’re not sure what to do, why not try something creative? Guys, you need to do this too. There are all kinds of creative ideas out there! I focus on knitting, crochet & cross stitch, but there are about a zillion other things you can do. Draw, paint, woodworking, model building, RC cars or airplanes, sculpting… possibilities are endless!

If you’re interested in knitting, crochet or cross stitch like me, then please check out the patterns I’ve made & put on my website. I’ll be adding more over time, but there are a few patterns on there already that I hope you’ll like. The link directly to those patterns is below:

    I’m so glad you realized you need a break! ❤ Sometimes that's the hardest part (see Forest vs. Trees).

    Just checked out your patterns at that link. The mushroom house is SO cute! Also, I'd never heard of white squirrels. Gorgeous!

    • You can say that again. In the midst of it all, it truly is that forest vs trees thing.

      Thank you!! I love gnomes & gnome stuff so I had to make that.. 🙂

      White squirrels aren’t overly common. There are albinos & white squirrels who lack melanin- the thing that makes color. Where my parents are buried? They have the white ones & the staff calls them ghost squirrels. I saw one just after my father died & have been fascinated since! They are just precious! One in particular.. he’s so fluffy & beautiful!
