Reflect. Ask yourself what you want. Not what’s easier, not what’s more convenient — but what you really want. Decide on what’s going to make you the happiest on your long-term, and not on what’s going to make you comfortable on your short-term. Ask yourself what you want and not what others want. Families and friends — the people around you can easily influence what … Continue reading What to do when you don’t know what to do
It took me quite some time to decide whether I should put up my very own blog or not. On one hand, I wasn’t ready for the world to have a tour inside my head.

As the month of February comes to a close, I came to thinking how the past two months have flown too fast. It was as if the 1st of January was only yesterday, and everyone was greeting 2021 with such a warm welcome. Too many high hopes, too many expectations — 2021 held the key to waking up to 2020’s nightmare. Continue reading 2021 and how it’s going
Many regrets stem from being tongue-tied. Having no confidence at all, being stuck in fear — just not making a move on anything. But is living in the bubble of “what ifs” going to give you an answer? Continue reading What if you told them how you felt?

And even if you fall asleep, you’ll find yourself waking up at three in the morning just because your heart’s too heavy and you can’t breathe.

Don’t pity those whose backs you stab, but pity yourself for being one step, two steps, three steps behind. Don’t pity those whose feet you drag, but pity yourself for being one flight, two flights, three flights below.
