Knot today

I stress the importance of taking care of one’s mental health, especially during times as these. If you weren’t depressed before, I’m sure you may have experienced it since the pandemic. I’ve suffered from depression for years, and although the hardships I’ve faced in recent months were hard on me, I was able to manage.Continue reading “Knot today”

Overflow

I don’t like to see people struggle. When I do, I try my best to do something about it. Largely in part, because I was once in their shoes.

I can remember as child, “testing my faith” (I didn’t realize that’s what it was back then), while playing a game with my acquaintances. I’d close my eyes and fall back, “trusting” (and praying like hell) that the person behind me would catch me. Just as I was falling back, it felt like I wasContinue reading “If you move, they’ll fall”

Let’s TALK!

A lot of times we keep quiet and reserve our opinions, because we don’t want to offend anyone, especially those we love. However, there comes a point in our lives where we have to have some “uncomfortable conversations” with people, although they aren’t easy to initiate.  The things we say are purely for motivational purposes,Continue reading “Let’s TALK!”
