I got this little notification that said I had an invite. So I signed up. I took a little looksy around...for about 2 minutes. Then I signed off and never looked back.
You might ask why. Why did I do that when I see all of these really nifty DIY projects that people have been doing thanks to Pinterest? Why did I do that when I hear about all the awesome recipes that people have made...again, thanks to Pinterest.
WELL, THAT IS EXACTLY WHY!
EXACTLY!!! Thanks http://www.abbyhasissues.com/
I have anxiety just thinking about it. More recipes that I won't have time to make or will try to make but f#&k up. More cute little outfits or shoes that I want to buy but can't because they are too expensive or will look like crap on the body that I refuse to believe I have. More DIY projects that I will want to complete around my house. I can't take any MORE!!!
I am up to my limit in shit that I want to get done. I have enough DIY crap to do around my house to last me for YEARS.
I have recipe books (remember them?) that have never been cracked open, not once. If I am not going to have the drive to open a damn book that is collecting dust in the corner of my kitchen counter, I'm sure as hell not going to go onto Pinterest and stockpile more recipes for "never to me made" dishes. Sure, they all sound delicious...but it is enough to make me ask my doctor for anti-anxiety meds (and trust me, I probably should have done that years ago).
So thanks, but no thanks, Pinterest. I am sure you are WONDERFUL. I have heard that you are the bees knees. But I just can't take it right now. Maybe I will be ready for you at some point in the future. But for now, we are just going to have to put the brakes on things. Okay? Thanks.
