Let Go

They say that, at some point, you just learn to let go. I must disagree. If it just takes one moment to let go, then you never really held on tightly enough. To a dream. To a goal. To a place. To a person. To anything. I believe you let go little by little. You…

Bloom

How familiar we are with darkness can be quite surprising at times. You sit there and wonder how someone that looks so alive can actually be so melancholic. I believe that this darkness is what sets the right contrast for us to see clearly. But our role doesn’t end there, we don’t just survive and…

My life is like a night sky, full of brilliant stars. Below, everything is shadow, but above, light shines- something beautiful, a gleam that will never end. I know, it is through the darkness that I see the light. Even though I can’t see in front of me, I look up, and the light lasts….

Her Solitude!

As selfish as it sounded, she had to focus on herself. She kept trying to find happiness in other people, but realized it had to come from within her. Everyone wasn’t meant to understand her solitude and some felt slighted by her focus. Then again, misery loved company and she learned to love being alone….

The Art of Unlearning

Often times in life we find ourselves faced with situations we’d much rather not like to face. Maybe it’s the weight of reality crushing our bones, or maybe it’s the thought of all of the things we didn’t do that smothers us. Either way, we’re faced with anxiety. I have a theory, and I’m going…

Conscience

Two traveling monks reached a river where they met a young woman. Wary of the current, she asked if they could carry her across. One of the monks hesitated, but the other quickly picked her up onto his shoulders, transported her across the water, and put her down on the other bank. She thanked him…

Nodus Tollens

The realization that the plot of your life doesn’t make sense to you anymore. Although you thought, that you were following the arc of the story, you keep finding yourself immersed in passages you don’t understand, that don’t even seem to belong in the same genre. This requires you to go back and reread the chapters you…

When I Say No, I Feel Guilty

The story of how I came to read this book is quite an interesting one, which I’ll tell you about, before elaborating on its content. When I started my first full-time job, I was only 18 years old. As a result of having grown up in a protective environment, as well as not yet having…
