the scariest thing about constantly giving our best is that people expect us to be always on top of our game — that we don’t deserve to suffer a minor setback. it’s becoming unhealthy and little did we know, it’s slowly killing us. we are not supposed to be pressured by outside forces because we know deep inside us, we have our own system, a strategy on how to get there. however, some always knew when to spit the right words to break the mightiest wall we’ve created. what makes it harder is that we envisioned these people to be our first line of defense. day by day, it’s getting more difficult, frustrating, and we never want to be at a point when we’re at a cliff wanting to jump off, thinking maybe that’s the only way in order to finish this horrendous life we’re living.

Exactly a year ago, a friend turned best friend was looking for either a research head or editor-in-chief for their organization. At first, I had no plan on entering because I tried to keep a laser eye on my academics. And then I remembered being so eager to be part…


You don’t need to shut everything down. You just need to control it.

When I had my biggest downfall, I closed all of my social media accounts because I find some posts toxic. I blocked some people in my contacts list because I can’t digest looking at them even for…


Before having the courage to write this, I have wrote several essays and poems — all about pain.
