It amazes me how many times in an entire lifetime we find reasons upon reasons (whether they are valid or otherwise) to not give others a chance. Even if they have taken every opportunity to show us that they are amongst the most deserving and worthy, even if they have shown us that they are […]
It’s funny how sometimes even when everyone else around you can see something that is so blatantly obvious to them, is the one thing that you’re oblivious to. How can you have no idea, and essentially be the last to know, the way you feel? How can others possibly know before you do?
The age-old game of Push and Pull. Except, is it really a game? Who invented the rules for this weird, twisted way of interacting with someone we’re interested in? This is also commonly known as one person chasing and the other running. Then after that phase is over, they switch places. You can never expect […]
It’s nearly midnight and I should be asleep. I should be in a completely different world full of fantasies, bright colours and fast-paced excitement.

Yesterday I wrote you a six page letter. It was a spontaneous idea, but I been thinking about you so much for the last few weeks that it didn’t surprise me that I eventually came to do it. Whether or not I decided to post that letter, though, was another matter. I thought about you […]
If we, as humans, are told that regrets and mistakes are both a major (and unavoidable) part of life, why is it that we try to hard to avoid the unavoidable? This is the question that has been on my mind a lot recently. As someone who is actively trying to make right choices for […]
