Get Uncomfortable

All right! So far, today sucks. It's been a stressful few months or so. And of course, like anyone else, sometimes I just wake up on the wrong side of the bed. Sometimes you just wake up agitated, especially if you didn't sleep well. Which is kind of my case. To phrase it simply, I'm… Continue reading Get Uncomfortable

Know Your Weak Spot

In the past, we may have spoken about weakness and faults with ourselves. We have yet to discuss knowing our weak spot or spots. And what is a weak spot exactly, as defined for this article? A weak spot is: a place in your life that "goes" first when stress happens. So let's say you… Continue reading Know Your Weak Spot

What I Mean When I Say

“I Don’t Like/Want To Be Happy”

What person in their right mind would think this? Who would even go so far as to say this out loud? Me. Well, at least the me from a few years ago would say this and stand by it quite strongly. Unfortunately, just because I myself have moved beyond a certain point in my life… Continue reading “I Don’t Like/Want To Be Happy”

When To Stop Writing

Or maybe I should say, "When to take a break from writing". Or maybe, "When to put the pen down". Or maybe, "Do you need to stop writing?". Or maybe, "Just stop writing...for now". There's reason number one: you can't stop rephrasing things. Let's assume we're all writers here. Doesn't matter what kind, but you write. When you take… Continue reading When To Stop Writing

What I Mean When I Say

“I’ve Changed”

I don't say this often only because the moment doesn't often arise where I get to say it. If I could, I think I would tell everyone willing to listen that I've changed. Partially because I am absolutely obsessed with the concept of change. It's such a nifty idea isn't it? We can start off… Continue reading “I’ve Changed”
