There are so many things I want to let out

Keywords: blogs , feelings , expression , acceptance , understanding , blogging , safe space , outlet , venting

I have a lot of things that I deal with, as I am sure many of you do. So I would like to write about things that people can relate to. Even if the things I write aren’t 100% something you understand, I know we can all understand feelings. Situations may not be the exact same, but the emotions can be.

Loving yourself means respecting and taking care of your own feelings, needs and wants

Keywords: {0}

Growing up, I was raised with the idea that I must put others first before myself. I grew up to be selfless in every aspect because putting myself first felt selfish. So I thought loving myself means giving myself all the love and care that I’ve been giving to others but neglected myself. I walked past one of my favorite dessert stores at the mall a few months ago and it reminded me of the times when my ex and I used to steal each other’s dessert because they were just so good. fun times. I was contemplating if I should get myself one because I think it is really overpriced but I told myself that I should love myself more, so I bought it and felt really happy eating it. I also bought so many clothes and accessories online from the 11/11 sale without thinking about the price because I wanted to love myself more and I felt so happy when I received those goods.

I really really want to enjoy my life now but I’m too busy anticipating the future and kind of cant wait to have things all figured out in the future

Keywords: daily life

I don’t know where the confidence comes from, but I just cant wait for the future to finally come because I feel like I’ll have it all figured out, maybe it’s just me having high hopes because we all know life is full of challenges and ups and downs and surprises so yeah, the future that I’m waiting for might be not as fun as I picture it to be but as for now I’ll just keep that spirit in me.

I probably ‘like’ him because he makes me feel better about myself

Keywords: {0}

There’s this person I respect who seems to be part of or head of every single club and a literal polyglot-musician-actress-mathematician genius but still somehow remains cheerful and gets good grades. I aspire to be like her, but yet don’t want to be like her – I want to be myself. I want to know what I’m passionate about and carve a little niche where I can be good at what I do. I know I want to be in a STEM career, but not specifically what I want to do. We are gearing up to IB and choosing our options, and all everyone seems to ask is “what do you want to be in the future?” I always say a doctor, but some days I ruminate about being an editor, or a museum curator. Careers that seem nothing to do with the path I’ll probably end up going.

Caring for your mental health while still getting things done is difficult

Going forward, I really do hope that I can stand up again and be on my way to once again cultivating the life I want. If you’ve managed to make it this far, thank you for reading. I really, really hope that you can’t relate to this one, but if you do, I want you to know that the human experience- despite how nuanced and varied it may appear- is generally similar. Despite the intricate and small differences in or day to day lives, experiences with mental health, and overall associations and interactions with the world, we all experience feelings of inadequacy, self doubt, and have bad days. Being better isn’t about being perfect, but is about being forgiving to ourselves, allowing us to have the time and space to heal, and celebrating the wins, no matter how small. With all of that being said, I think I’ll end with this: Tomorrow will bring better.
