World Suicide Prevention Day 2022 | I understand

There is something so comforting about knowing that someone understands you; that you know you are not alone in your sentiments or that it is okay to think and feel a certain way even if it's different from everyone else.

let’s talk about politics…

I thought long and hard about this. Do I want to include politics on my blog? Am I ready to have a discourse with friends, families, and readers that share different sentiments from mine?

“Do you still want to die?”

I heard a lot of warnings about The Midnight Library. A lot of people I know who have read it said that one should not read it if they are not in a good headspace.

WSPD | this is okay

It can be overwhelming at first, but the dark isn’t too bad. It is the arms that caress her at night to make sure she doesn’t sleep alone; the gentle touch that wipes the tears away. It is the blanket that makes her feel safe—too familiar that it is impossible not to feel its comfort … Continue reading WSPD | this is okay

28th

so I turned 28…

The streets were unusually empty for a Sunday evening. Or has it always been like this since the pandemic? I miss the buzz of our small town, but I also love the peace and quiet now. I crossed the road—no vehicles going back and forth, no people loitering in sight. I was alone, but I … Continue reading so I turned 28…
