“There is no such thing as too much self-love.” Even as I type this, there is this voice in my head screaming, “Yes, there is. It is called narcissism.” But I read somewhere that your first reaction to something or someone is what society has conditioned you to think. Your reaction to that first thought is what defines you, makes you who you are. So … Continue reading self-love
I read somewhere that solitude isn’t the absence of love, but its complement. Depending on how you look at it, this could be true or false. According to me though, this is true. I think the greatest and most difficult love affair is with ourselves. I mean, who can confidently say that they love who they are at all times? And it has taken me … Continue reading solitude
i don’t know how true this is, but lately, i have been feeling like i am in a really good emotional space. don’t misunderstand me, I’m still what most people would call a wreck, but for some reason, that doesn’t bother me. i have actually gotten to the point where my thoughts don’t bother me. while previously, i would do whatever it takes not to … Continue reading i made a bucket list..
It is tradition to have resolutions at the beginning of every year. I have long learnt not to make any promises to myself. Not the ones I am almost positive I will break. But here is a new concept; hope.so I am going to dare and hope and see how that goes. I hope this year is the year I find myself (or at least … Continue reading On to 2015
Growing up. One of those things in life we can do on our own terms. With all its pressures and everyone chipping in with what’s right and what isn’t, eventually it all comes down to us deciding what we are going to become. And that is the problem with irrevocable choice; plenty of room to make mistakes. Or at least that’s how it was and … Continue reading Growing up
so my previous blog post was about finding yourself and about how back and forth a process this is. so back to the same friend i was having this “finding yourself” conversation with, would you imagine she had the audacity to tell me i am transitioning from “depressed” to “not depressed.” but i am just being dramatic, i will admit though, there is some truth … Continue reading Is this a sequel? i do not know, you decide…
just this morning, i was talking to my friend and she was telling me the way “finding yourself” is the most cliche activity known to mankind. and i was like,”you should though.” i know people who think that this is a rich-people thing. i honestly don’t know how i feel about that but this much i know, losing yourself is not a rich-people thing. take … Continue reading finding yourself..
I have heard people say “the mirror has a thousand faces.” growing up, i did not understand the meaning, let alone the truth in this statement. see, early on in life, i had been convinced that whoever i saw when i looked in a mirror was my exact replica. but as i got older, there are days when i barely recognized who i saw when … Continue reading Of Reflections and Taste.
so i promised myself that i would never use this blog as an avenue to make people understand me better, but let’s face it, what really are blogs for?? but i feel like i owe it to my kind( and by my kind, i mean introverts), to explain just how our world works. this is because i have had a rough few days, and i … Continue reading of introverts
We speak in hushed voices So as not wake our memories Of the people we’ve become And the virtues we’ve lost Whispers of the roads not taken Regrets of the ones travelled Ghosts of the lives we’ve destroyed. We tread in caution Dreadfully avoiding previous paths Fearfully calculating our every move Forging into an unknown future Struggling to forget our past Doomed as we are … Continue reading who we are
