Back from the Dead

The thing about social media is that anybody can see what you say and post online. People who don't know you well enough will look at your social media and assume they know who you are as a person. But to be honest, most of us are still figuring that out for ourselves. Truth is, … Continue reading Back from the Dead

How to change for the better and be happier

Remember that you don't have to solve everything and fight by yourself. There will always be people who do genuinely care about you even if you don't feel it.

Redemption of Liberty

I walk out towards the beach. To take a small personal glimpse into the lives I see other people happily living. I take off my shoes and the fine grains are like fire underneath my feet. Those infinite minute particles, meaningless on their own, together retains much of the scalding heat within their scarce mass. I … Continue reading Redemption of Liberty
