Sometimes, I feel exposed when I write my blog posts. The inner workings of my heart are on display, and I want to hide it, cover my chest with my hands, and not let anyone see. I want to stop writing on this blog because I feel too raw and exposed, too revealed. But I always change my mind because I know my words do help people, that even if my words help one person feel less alone out there, it is worth that, that all too often in this world we are seen for our outsides rather than our souls and my blog, I hope, is a place where people can be seen for their souls, including me.Continue reading The Deepest Heart-to-Heart Yet
It is exactly 7:22pm, and my brain is fried after a day of studying, so please bear with me as the writing in this post will probably be less stellar. But onto the topic of this evening’s post, which is the way that some people seem to treat INFPs as useless. I know this isn’t everyone, but as an INFP, I have been treated quite badly by several people over the course of my life and have been told I’m an ‘idiot’ or ‘useless’ or any number of variations of that word.Continue reading Are INFPs are “useless”?
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.Continue reading As an INFP, I Feel Disrespected A Lot
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.Continue reading A Heart-to-Heart, This Winter Night
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.Continue reading Are You A Villain?
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.Continue reading I Didn’t Touch Writing For A Month
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.Continue reading I Gave Up On My Dream Indefinitely
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.Continue reading A Ramble On The Void
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).Continue reading Raindrops and Roses (A Ramble)
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.Continue reading A Heart-to-Heart Tonight
