If you’re lost, in pain, or in need of a short escape from life, you’re in the right place. This blog is dedicated solely for you, to reassure you of the inner strength you possess, and your hidden power to rise above your past and present hardships. It’s time to let go of all the negative weight you’ve been carrying, the thoughts that have only upset you, and the people who’ve only criticized or made fun of your weak spots. What is it you’re worried or afraid of? What is it that’s pushing you to hate yourself or has made you neglect your overall well-being? This is the perfect time for you to sit or lie alone silently, to forgive yourself for being imperfect, and to reflect on how you can find the same patience and self-faith you’ve once had. You deserve to be in this safe space. Let your mind and heart be free from all the anxiety. Discover your better self in solitude

­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­There used to be nights when I’d stare blankly at the ceiling while I’d lie awake in bed. I remember how I’d beg the universe to save me from drowning on my own thoughts and just help me drift off to sleep. Those nights crushed my soul and slowly stole bits and bits of my sanity. But in me, I also knew there remained hope, and there remained my will to live on despite being amidst of trouble or difficulty. I wish for you to realize the same inner strengths in coping up with your personal battles. There’s no promise for an easier path or a fast solution – oftentimes, those things don’t even exist, and that’s the reality. We need to accept the flaws that are present in our lives, and the flaws we have as human individuals. It’s okay to start over a project you’ve failed, it’s okay to take a three-week break from an exhausting job, and it’s okay to excuse yourself from people’s business and grant yourself that space you’ve always looked forward to have. It’s okay to prioritize your mental health until you finally develop genuine peace. You have my word, it’s completely okay.  

I was able to lengthen my patience and regain my sanity after I’ve come across a new hobby I grew passionate of. I developed a habit of watching comedy films and drawing on my sketchbook during my leisure time, and somehow, it’s helped me stay calm and resilient whenever I encounter difficult moments. You may ask why I’m sharing you this, and it’s simply because I want you to find your own hobby that would help relieve you from your struggles. It can be working out, listening to motivational podcasts, visiting your favorite museum; it can be anything you believe can alleviate you. Listen to your sound mind, listen to your body. Is it telling you what you truly need? Do you believe it’s what’s best for you? As long as it won’t do you any harm – Take a risk, trust your gut, and pursue it.  

If you’ve gone this far with reading my blog, do me a favor and take a slow deep breath. Think about all the moments you should’ve quit but decided to continue on – and then thank yourself. Think about all those people who stuck around while they’ve witnessed you being at your worst – and then keep them. Lastly, think about all the things you’ve accomplished, may it be big or small – and be grateful. Remember than there’s always more to life than our problems, no matter how heavy it gets. Give yourself a soft pat in the back, and maybe you can start with listening to soothing music or just appreciate the present silence to where you are while you meditate. This has been my mantra to cope with my own battles, and let it be yours: I am greater than my problems, I am stronger than I think.
