Closure from Others isn’t a Guarantee

Where did the idea of seeking closure from the people who have hurt us come from? It seems like a waste of time because it hardly ever goes the way we envision and sometimes leaves us in a worse place. Certain things are better for us not to know and to just leave alone. Knowing… Continue reading Closure from Others isn’t a Guarantee

The Thing about Personal Growth/Change

Recently, the idea of growth and changing has become pretty popular, which is great to a certain extent. I say to a certain extent because I am noticing that some people are changing not for themselves but for others.

Give People Some Space to Complain a Little

Hear my out, complaining is not that bad. It can be a form of venting as a way for people to verbalize their frustrations, dislikes, etc. When people verbalize their frustrations, it lead to them feeling better instead of keeping everything inside or feeling like they have to deny/hide emotions. They can get a better… Continue reading Give People Some Space to Complain a Little

Even though self-care has become a popular trend recently, it is very important to have some type of rituals that you can commit to on a regular basis for taking care of yourself. With social media, like Instagram… Continue reading Self-Care

For the New Year

Normally, I do not create New Year’s resolutions because in most cases it end up being a waste of my time. When I created New Year’s resolutions in the past, they seemed forced and I hardly ever fully followed through with them. I felt this pressure that I have to do think of something to… Continue reading For the New Year

There are times that I see people in harmful situations that limits their growth.

I cannot just move people away… Continue reading Offer Support Instead of Jumping to Conclusions
