Being There For Me

I'll even tell them I agree with them because I no longer feel the need to defend myself in the face of people who aren't even willing to listen to what I have to say. If they can't trust me and accept me and acknowledge me for who and what I am and for what I give to them selflessly, I'm not going to force them to. I'll step away, back off, and they won't even realize I've done so.

An Open Letter To Everyone Who Thinks 'Periods' To Be A Curse!

"We have empowered the girls" said the society. But not as empowered as to talk boldly about their periods, sighed the whispers in the black plastic. Why do we treat sanitary pads as a radioactive isotope? Why are they wrapped with newspaper and black plastics?

The Scar

Yes, I’m talking about the beautiful scar that we as women carry after the birth of a child through a C-Section. A C-Section is a beautiful story of a mother and the baby, where the child is so stubborn to come out, or it’s like the child loves the mother so much that they don’t want to leave the place where they spent about 9 months

A Letter To You

I know at this point words don’t help because they can’t change anything but right now they’re all I have. So I’m writing to you in the hope that my words will take your pain away, and if it can’t, I hope it at least makes you forget – for a brief moment in time…

A Letter To You

Chained

Maybe you’re supposed to be studying right now but you’re reading this, maybe a lot of your work is unresolved but you’re watching re-runs of your favorite show, maybe you have errands to complete but you just can’t find the will to get work done. We spend so much time believing we’re feeling nothing, doing nothing when we’re doing so many little things together. We’ve trained our minds into believing that we have to be productive at every single waking moment.

Chained

Still

I have not been able to talk about it openly for a while, because apparently, it is not the sort of thing people usually talk about especially publicly. Then Michelle Obama started talking about it. Beyoncé talked and sang about it. The fictional character Dr. Amelia Shepherd of Grey’s Anatomy finally shared her long-kept secret…

Along the Way...

Amelie’s quest set her on an impossible journey to find the true meaning of love, self-love and how to compassionately shower love to everyone. This journey is full of feeling, empathy and learnings and incomplete without Steve and Peter. In this journey, she overcame her fear of love as there is no fear in love.

Let's Talk About Eczema: My Story

Then one morning, I noticed some pimple-like structures, they were itchy and reddish. They were on my face (especially the area around the nose, cheeks and forehead), both arms and both legs. I thought that probably I had a food allergy and that the pimples would disappear after some time. A week later, it only got worse…

Moving Away from The Joneses

Let me live my own life at my own pace, helped and guided by my God, singing my own tune, whether it be off-key or not, content to have a not-so-perfect house, or perfectly manicured lawn, or perfect clothes everyday, or perfect car, or anything resembling a utopian existence… All this chasing of one’s tail in order to be as ‘successful’ as the next person, is wearying to the soul, and certainly, adds nothing to your true worth, value and significance.
