Sometimes people get so carried away with love and lust. They start to change vital things about themselves because of the warm embrace that love provides. They dream less and less of making a difference in the world and they dream more and more of how to make their significant other satisfied. Being in a relationship/marriage provides some sort of security; you know that all your problems are half shared and that brings major comfort.…

Do you believe in friendship with an ex?

It’s always sad when a relationship ends of course. You have to adjust to suddenly being alone but a major annoying part about losing a lover is also losing a friend in the process. Dating someone pretty much means sharing life with them; they grow to know your strengths, weaknesses, fears, dreams and pretty much the whole 9 yards. They become your go to when you’re happy/sad/confused/lost/elated; your own personal cheerleader; the person you allow…

I’m Unmarried NOT Diseased

I was having a conversation with a lady and she asks if i’m single or in a serious relationship and i say i’m single and she replies ‘Awwww don’t worry your time will come ok; hang in there’. I literally had a blank look, hang in where? I find that this happens often. Once people know i’m single/unmarried they turn sympathetic, act like i have an uncommon illness and then try to tell me to…

Find The Beauty In a New Month!

It’s a new month!!!! I’m that cheesy person that says Happy New Month to the people in my life. New months excite me. It’s almost like a rebirth; slates are wiped clean and it’s a new beginning. A new chance; to be more, to do better. A time of reflection, goal setting and resolutions. New months make me smile! It’s a reminder that i’m a survivor; i’m still alive and i’m still kicking it.

Depression is NOT A Myth; Neither Is It a Choice

In this part of the world; depression means to be lazy. It’s something ‘lazy’ people hide behind when they don’t want to get a job, be social, be ‘normal’. It is an unspoken taboo; an abomination; something that brings shame. To me, Depression is an extremely deep feeling of being wrapped around and cuddled by sadness. Misery loves company; and so it seeks out someone and sets up residence. I’ve been close to a few…

5 Things I’m Learning From My Start-Up

It’s made me take…

What have you always wanted to…
