As long it’s not gonna get you killed, of course. This is my new life motto. I always thought […]Read More ”Do lots of scary shit. Repeat.”
It was only a month ago that I thought about the fact I don’t give myself second chances, even though I give three, four chances to everybody else. How come I never thought about self-forgiveness before? To forgive is such an important part of who I am and my values. Still, I forgot about myself. […]Read More We need to forgive ourselves more often.
As fuck, yeah. Ever since I started understanding about privileges, I understood the importance of being grateful for what you have.

I’m an anxious person and I’m also Pisces. That means most of the time I’m suffering in advance or suffering from problems that are only real in my head.

I used to say that I would never be in a long-distance relationship. I didn’t see how it could work. For me, back in the days, if there was no physical contact, it was just a friendship.
