You’re Not Who You Think You Are

Who do you think you are? I mean that literally. Do you think you’re a good person? A loving, caring person? A generous and kind person? A humble and selfless person? Maybe you don’t think so highly of yourself. Maybe you think you’re an awful person. Maybe you’ve done some things that, in hindsight, you…

The Hardest Thing I’ve Ever Walked Away From

Have you ever been in love with someone? And not that fake love, where you say you “love each other” but you both know (maybe not at the time) it’s just infatuation, and once the honeymoon period fades, so does the “love” that came with it. No, but I’m talking about real love, whatever that…

A Single, Short Chapter

I’ve recently had a series of what you could call, tragic irony, happen to me. If not that, at the very least, it’s something so absurd and unimaginable, that it’s funny. It’s so sad and almost evil in a way, that I can’t help but laugh and wonder, why me? I’m just gonna spill the…

An Unhealthy Way of Dealing With Insecurities

We all have insecurities. That’s not anything new to anyone. We also have our own ways of coping with our insecurities, again, nothing new here. And with all coping mechanisms, there is one more obvious fact I want to share: some are good and some are bad.  So what’s a good way to cope with…

I’m a Highly Sensitive Person

So this post is going to be much more anecdotal in nature in that I’m not trying to “prove” something to you, or even persuade you to believe a certain idea, but rather, I just want to speak my mind and share a little bit about what I’m feeling, and how I’ve been the past…

When to Give Up….

Something that I’ve revealed here in the past, one of which I still, to this day, feel very passionate about, is that I’m a very vivid dreamer. I have several dreams every night, most of which I can remember if I try. Granted, not all dreams seem to have significant importance, but there are those…

Starting Over

What does it mean to “start over”? Like really, what do people mean when they say “I’m just gonna start over”. Now, whether that be with a new job, new relationship, new education path, it doesn’t really matter, it seems as though we hear those 2 words from ourselves and others whenever we find out…

Why Don’t Thing Work Out?

As I write this, there’s only one question that comes to mind. Why don’t things work out? Do you ever feel like that enough shit has happened in your life, enough people have hurt you, put you down, lied to you, or whatever it is, you feel like you deserve something to work out? And…

Everyone Is Alone

I’ve just finished up the book, Island, by Aldous Huxley, and I’ve gotta say, it’s been one of the most thought-provoking books I’ve read in a long time, possibly since the last Huxley book I read, A Brave New World, which I wrote a post about that here: A Brave New World. Anyway, there’s this scene towards the end…

“Attention! Here and Now.”

Do you know why I chose the title I chose? It’s from a book by Aldous Huxley called Island. It was one of his last works, if not his last, that he wrote before he died. Although not considered his most well-known books, it is widely considered one of his most important, as it was, indeed, written…
