Late Bloomer’s Anthem: That Girl In The Corner

Although I’ve been writing every day, updating the blog on a regular basis turned out to be less ideal. Told myself it’s okay to not write constantly.

Despite my brain working hard, and barely thinking straight, I’ve kept myself calm and collected.

Having such an anxious mind can be a challenge. People will look at you, and think you’re a mess for it. I’m personally tired of criticizing myself.

For a long time, I was treated horribly by many people. Telling people no made me feel guilt on the highest degree, taking the time to heal felt like too much to ask for.

Learning to accept yourself and embrace the person you are, that’s a long process in itself. In the end, you’ll be grateful for the tough journey.

In the last six months, I’ve discovered strength within, that I never knew I had.

Found out the real meaning behind life, what it means to be living.

I’m only now starting to experience life in all its glory. Better a late bloomer than none at all. Soon enough, I’ll become the version of me I was destined to be, all along.

No, it doesn’t make me any less or any more. If anything, what didn’t kill my hope, it only strengthens mine with time.

There are things I have yet to improve, and I’m fully aware as it is.

Being weak in the flesh is nothing new. We’re perfectly imperfect, and sometimes you just have to keep moving forward.

Hoping 2019 brings love, happiness and so much more, to each and every one of you.

Writing Session #9

Yet another writing session. I’m sorry for the lack of depth within my writing as of late. Personally, I have a lot to say but knowing how to put those feelings into words is tough at times. Life is better than it’s ever been, which keeps me content about my own self-critique.

Being truly satisfied will always be a cloud too far in the sky of thought. You can try to perhaps succeed. Most times, it’ll do. Just don’t expect too much. It’s better this way, you will find.

Forever grateful for this platform, and for the ones who have followed me on this journey. Certainly inspiring. Well, stay tuned for the next one. I may have more to add in the next coming 24 hours. Take care. xo

Common Traits Of A Perfectionist

Like many writers, I strive for perfection each time I create a new piece of work, and whenever inspiration hits. But, as we all know, there’s no such thing. As much as we work hard to produce great results, the more we push ourselves to achieve, the more it can damage our health and lives. Which, in turn, doesn’t do much good for our minds either.

There’s a difference between progression and utter exhaustion, I can say that now.

Be passionate about your ambitions, but also keep in mind, the importance of a balanced life. We often forget how important it actually is. Often enough, people get caught up in the chaos of life and ultimately, it leads to a build-up of stress, anxiety, depression etc.

After all, we’re human and it’s okay not to be. Keep your head up.

Remember that working hard is a good thing, as long as you take a break when it’s needed. Working yourself to the bone is not helpful, if anything, it stops you from reaching your full potential.

And you have a lot of potential in this world.

Being mentally well and emotionally well are important parts of a personal equation.

During the first year of my blog being active (under a different title at the time) I often found myself under pressure. Felt like I had to impress people with my work, which caused my anxiety to go through the roof.

It was partly the reason for a blog hiatus in the early days of DAYDREAM MADNESS being put together. The inspiration, as well as the motivation to write, it simply wasn’t there and I was struggling to cope most days. In the end, I’m quite glad I took that time to reflect and work on myself, emotionally.

Now, I actually have a good mindset, which does help a lot when you’re writing and constantly creating new material. Of course, we all have bad days from time to time, but it doesn’t affect me as much. Time really does make all the difference!

 

Patience is a virtue. Self-care is a necessity. Believe in yourself.  

Commentary Of A Writing Enthusiast

Talking to yourself is somewhat therapeutic for the soul.

Even in the darkest of times, you’ll always have yourself.

Often enough, I am my own commentary genius. Well, in my mind.

People can define it as they choose, but nothing keeps me more down-to-earth than a few wise words from yours truly.

In the end, you know yourself best. Or perhaps, as close to it as can be. That’s just my personal opinion.

Have a wonderful night, take care of you.

What is the best advice you’ve ever given to yourself?

Losing You Was My Mistake, An Open Letter To An Old Love

After years of wishing to be present at this place, I’m finally here, in what seemed like the longest mission.

But the sad part is, you’re not part of the equation. You’d probably freak out if you knew, or perhaps that’s just me worrying about your reaction.

Being here is odd, wonderful yet strange. We haven’t spoken in over a year, calling you would probably be a bad idea, so I’m pushing my feelings aside and spilling my emotions here instead.

To be honest or just keep thoughts closed, the question spinning inside my mind.

I want to say what I feel, but at the same time, talking on impulse is never a good scenario when your emotions are on full speed.

People always did say that I was a little too vocal about this dear heart of mine, and without too much thought, ended up alienating myself from the ones I cared about the most.

Ultimately, the person on the wrong side of things was me, despite my denials and trials.

Because of my personal insecurities and stupid ways, I lost an important person in my life, someone who stood by me during the hardest moments, not because I deserved it, but because they cared unconditionally.

That’s what I regret the most, losing you.

And it’s not that I desire things to be back to how they were, or how they should have been, but I cannot deny the fact that I miss the friend I knew and loved, and still do.

PS: You’re a bright star in a dim world.
