Success vs Happiness

These days, life seems to be all about success. Everything is about winning, boasting, looking "on fleek" and being the center of attention. People, especially some teenagers and young adults, are on a high-speed chase for money, fame and acceptance from society. The sad part about it is that their view on life is all...

No Turning Back

Everyone has struggles. Everyone eventually conquered/will conquer one of/some/most, or all their struggles. However, it is our struggles that teach us a lesson and build our character adding to the process of maturity and having certain realizations. Surprisingly, what many adults fail to realize, is that teenagers have struggles too, whether it be with school,... Continue Reading →

Dear Mr. Sir

"I am writing this letter to you declaring who I am, meant to be, made to be and who owns me. You did what you did and stripped me of all I had. Every bit of courage, confidence, self-love and appreciation I had for myself. You made me believe I was nothing but garbage, a... Continue Reading →

Faith > Sight

It was probably a few months ago that I came across a tweet from Dante’s twitter account (@whoknowsdante). The tweet had my attention at first glance and after scanning through the rest of them, I had no other choice but to click that “follow” button. He always had something good to say, not only good...

Surviving Puppets

That’s exactly what some of us are, “surviving puppets” (with/without strings). Not teens/teenagers/kids/children. We’re just walking paradoxes; of our own selves, lives, friends, parents, teachers and most of all, of society. They tell us that we’re free, that we have decisions to make on our own, that we’re “grown” or “old enough” to do this... Continue Reading →

#BlackLivesMatter, Is it just a trend?

Since recently, I’ve noticed the #blacklivesmatter hashtag becoming a trend. This is a good thing, yet a bad one. It’s bad seeing that we’re only able to use a hashtag to prove the worth of our black lives and to get recognition. It’s sad that nobody recognizes our worth until we protest, get killed or...

Let Us Live

One of the most overlooked stages of being a teen is the one where we are merely surviving/existing rather than actually living. If you were once a teen, you should at least be aware of the struggles we face growing up. However, with such a diverse and large generation gap, it would be unfair for... Continue Reading →

Respeck & Support My Choices

One of the most tragic things in one's life is to grow up and not fulfill the life they've planned, expected or dreamed of... simply because the people in their support system showed them little to no "respeck" when it came to their decisions (if it was a bad one then that's understandable). There comes... Continue Reading →
