losing my english

i mean it
these last few days i can not concentrate reading english text. i always had to stop and think so hard: what does this sentence mean?
i still can write it easily, well because it depends on me. but reading others writings in english, especially they who have english as their first language, feels so difficult lately.
see, reading english text always requires more concentration and energy for me. i don't know where they've gone. seems like i lost passion in it, thing i usually enjoyed so much.
what is going on with me?

beberapa hari terakhir ini aku ga bisa konsentrasi membaca teks dalam bahasa inggris. aku selalu berhenti dan berpikir, apa sih maksudnya kalimat ini?
aku masih bisa nulis dengan mudah, yo mesti karena itu tergantung aku sendiri, tapi membaca tulisan orang lain dalam bahasa inggris, terutama mereka yang memang penutur bahasa inggris, tiba-tiba terasa sulit.
membaca text berbahasa inggris bagiku selalu membutuhkan lebih banyak energi dan konsentrasi. aku ga tau ke mana perginya mereka. aku seperti kehilangan hasrat untuk itu, hal yang biasanya aku nikmati.
ada apa denganku?

I'm amazed by your English language skill, but I totally understand where you are coming from. It's hard to just enjoy reading a post if you have to concentrate just to get through it.

I hope your ability to read it comes back - and better - so you can enjoy what you're reading instead of having to concentrate so hard.

I think you write very well! I can't imagine having to read and write another language, however it is a wonderful skill!

I'm with burp cloth... You would be very missed by us, your English as 1st language, readers. I hope that you will not have to concentrate so hard. I have very little skills in another language and am therefore impressed by yours. Mine is limited to what little I can remember from taking German in High school and a few phrases I know in Spanish.

♡ You do so GREAT with your English! Seriously I'm impressed! With all the different slang words that we use I can only imagine how hard it is to figure it all out!
