My Lord feels my pain.When it starts to rainHe is there for me.When nobody understandsWhat it’s like to be me,He is there for me.When I doubt myselfAnd worry incessantly,He is there for me.When I am trying my best,But best I am not,He is there for me.When I am glad and grateful,Thanking Him profusely,He is there…… Continue reading He is there for me
‘Who am I?’ I find myself wondering. Every time I find myself questioning who I am, I delve into old photographs, looking back at frozen moments in time. A fresh-faced younger me, caught in a slight frown in a candid picture; a younger me posing with a favourite book or smiling next to an old…… Continue reading In Search of Identity
It’s not very easy to reach out and ask for help when you are going through something, especially if you have been going through it for quite some time. There’s the thought that you are perhaps being selfish, being the Debbie Downer in the conversation, and subjecting those you love to the same circles of…… Continue reading Some thoughts on mental health
On the day that this is published, I will have finished my last exam. *Throws hands up in the air* I did it! I graduated! I have been wanting to take a break from blogging (although my posts are already sporadic). There’s a lot going on outside, and sometimes I feel like it’s the opposite…… Continue reading Until Next Time Then…

Nothing very coherent, but I had this sudden urge to open this box up and write about certain good things that have happened and that I am so grateful for. A nice way to spend some time instead of thinking of the current situation, I reckon. This year, I started interning while finishing my last…… Continue reading Quarantine Thoughts #3
The final day of my penultimate semester at university. I’m not feeling nostalgic in the true sense, but something in me wants to address all this time spent here in some way. I don’t really know where this post is heading, but today I’m really in the mood for some unfiltered, unedited writing – something…… Continue reading reflections on university, I guess
A lot of years in my life have gone by with me holding myself back. Me constantly wondering if I should have said that, if I should really do that, if I’m right to feel that, if I’m going down the right path, et cetera. A while ago, I took a week long class that…… Continue reading Set Yourself Free.
