Hi, I’m probably just like you. Wanting to express my truest self. So here I am. This is my first blog.
I’ve been journaling for about a year now. Writing on things that consumes my mind at the time. Old school pen and paper. If I do not get my hands on my journal the stuff that bothers my mind just consumes my thoughts and sometimes affects my mood. There were many times I just burst out loud “Jeez! I need a friend.” Just so I can get it out of my head. Literally just out in the world.
While you are busy reading this article, try mo rin makinig sa episode namin:
I remember one time at work while everyone was busy, I desperately looked for a pen and any piece of paper I can get. I asked the security guard if they had any clean piece of paper and he was glad to tore a clean page off of a record book. I really needed to write so I took it. Not minding at all that the edges were crooked and the page was a little crumpled. That page is still stuck on the side of my refrigerator. After writing I felt lighter as if a friend was there for me and she just “listened”.
I’ll share some of my journal entries soon. I hope it resonates with you and you find comfort in it. We are all the same. We want to express our true selves and know that like others, what you’re going through others go through as well. I’ll be cheering for you.
Special thanks to Marahuyo. You inspired me. I never thought I’d ever express myself this way.
