You Were My Home, But Now I Have To Build My Own

Perhaps the thing that crushes us the most when we are torn away from a meaningful connection that no longer multiplies with passion is the loss of a world that feels closer to home than the one we live in. You were not only a sanctuary where I could unveil the expectations the world had on my shoulders, you were also a paradise that I was able to take refuge in.

As we grow up and welcome maturity with opening yet trepid arms, we also begin to experience just how much people can hurt us and use our own personal secrets as weapons against us. We become hardened shells as we grow with age, conditioned to place multiple barriers between ourselves and the recipients of our love and affection and time.

An Open Letter To My Younger Self

If only I knew then what I know now, I would have saved myself from so much wasted anxiety and so much unnecessary stress.
And in five years from now, I would say the exact same thing to my present self today.
Here is an open letter to remind my younger self that life has its own peculiar ways of throwing us headfirst into a current of deep water. But the waves will never be dangerous enough to drown us because we are much, much stronger than what we give ourselves credit for.

What A Journey Into The Heart of Cambodia Taught Me About True Happiness

Being a city girl all my life, it was so easy to get caught up in the bustling nature of technology, modern skyscrapers, and materialistic indulgences whether that be in the form of good food, good sceneries, a good night out or high-end delicacies. In a world where most of our problems were privileged, first world issues, I found myself caught up in a rollercoaster of distinguishing what was a real problem that would affect my quality of life, and what was a problem that only existed in my mind.
