As an INFP, I Feel Disrespected A Lot

This has something that has been bubbling underneath the surface of my mind for a while. So, as the title of this post states, as an INFP, I feel disrespected by people a lot. I am just an ordinary 23-year-old woman, and you would think this would afford some measure of respect in society when you interact with, say, a salesperson in a store or even your family, but that is not the case.

A Heart-to-Heart, This Winter Night

It’s winter right now in Australia, although I know for many of you it is actually summer where you live. For the last few weeks, the nights have been chilly and some days, it was downright cold. It’s been a bit warmer these couple of days though, so I hope it lasts – I’m terrible with cold. Heat, I can bear, but cold? No, I absolutely hate it. Just like I hate cold showers and diving into a cold swimming pool. But I can bear the heat much better and I like fire and far prefer the warmth to the cold. Anyway, enough about hot and cold weather; let’s get into this post.

Are You A Villain?

I’ve been thinking a lot about whether or not I am a good person. In many ways, I’m not. I’ve wished ill on people who have wronged me in the past, hoping they would stumble and fall, gleeful in the prospect of watching them suffer or crash and burn. Part of that is due to the meanness that is in me but also because they wronged me so badly and I was so hurt by them, it’s difficult not to hope they get a taste of their own medicine.

I Didn’t Touch Writing For A Month

So my dear dreamers, it certainly has been quite a while since we’ve touched base. I hope you have all been well. I can’t say I am doing well, nor am I doing unwell. In the month that I’ve been absent from blogging, I haven’t so much as written a word, not even for this blog. I think I just needed a break from writing as a whole because it had become this gnarly, ugly thing for me, this thing I had to do to get published and plus, what I wrote just wasn’t very good and that was extremely disheartening.

I Gave Up On My Dream Indefinitely

I guess it’s that time of the year again, the time where I overspill and over share. Once, this girl who was harassing me online told me that I should write my thoughts down in a diary instead of online but I don’t think that’s the case, do you? I am free to write my thoughts on the internet if I wish, on a blog of my own. You might be wondering why I haven’t posted on this blog for a while and the reasons for this are manifold. But, as you have probably surmised from the title of this post, yes, one of the main reasons is that I have given up fiction writing for the time being. I am giving up my dream of becoming an author indefinitely.

A Ramble On The Void

It’s around half past ten at night right now and I am a bit tired but I still felt like writing this blog post, so that’s what I’m going to do. I feel so immensely tired at the moment, and I don’t mean mentally or physically. It feels like my soul is tired and I don’t know why. Actually, I can’t even exactly explain what it is I feel right now – it’s sort of a combination of nostalgia, misery and yearning all at the same time.

Raindrops and Roses (A Ramble)

It’s been a while since I’ve written anything on this blog. I’ve been quite busy working on finding a part-time job after I lost my last one and, of course, writing as well. Then there’s the fact that I sometimes feel like whatever I write isn’t good enough, no matter how hard I try, including what I write here, so sometimes, I can’t even bear trying (which is bad, I know).

A Heart-to-Heart Tonight

So I’ve changed the theme of my blog recently, as you can obviously tell. I hope you, dear dreamers, like it and if not, I might look around for another theme and see if it might be more suitable. I just felt like a change and plus, the default writing on my old theme was so small.

Hitting A Low Point

I have officially hit a low point in my life. After I lost my job during the Covid-19 crisis, which is still sort of ongoing, nothing has been going right. I haven’t been writing, for one thing. I reread some of my writing and I absolutely loathed it and realised I had written the same books so many times I was utterly tired of the plotlines. So I decided to give myself a break – only for the days to turn into weeks and with no end in sight as to whether I will ever pick up writing again. I actually hate writing at the moment – not blog writing, which I find cathartic and freeing and a way to connect with people, but fiction writing, which has become this source of stress and a place where I feel I need to be better, to improve, to be better, better, better.
