Better Days

Thinking back to the time when I was still traversing the dark side of my life and comparing it to where I am now, it still feels surreal that I overcame that, back then I was so ready to give up. I never believed that “it will get better” but here I am now, better than I ever was.

Struggles and better days are always together. Rains and rainbows as well. Always remember that.

Lost Writings | 06 – Reminiscing

REMINISCING

I can’t even remember a time when I can say that I felt real happiness—
the genuine kind where I can keep it in my mind and revisit it every time
I need a place to feel safe. But I always remember the time that I cried
so hard every night and the time that my heart got crushed into pieces,
I have kept memories of those kind, that I feel like sadness is my safe place and it will be all I’ll ever have.


I wrote a bunch of poetry back in 2017, it was all over the place. So, I finally retrieved it from my old broken laptop and some were from my old journal pages that I may have forgotten about.

We’ll Get Through Together| Suicide Prevention Month

It’s suicide prevention month but every day should always be a day to take care of your mental health.

This month is dedicated to all the people that are struggling to see a light at the end of the tunnel.

I honestly don’t know what to say about this certain topic and that is why I don’t directly talk about this in here. I personally struggle with my own mental health as well, and I know how sensitive this topic is. I also know how everyone of us is dealing with our own demons, and fighting our own battles. That is why we all need to be kind to each other. I don’t want to say any cliché things here, because I know how it feels to hear “just be strong”, “it will be okay”, and all the other pep talks that our friends and family keep on telling us. We appreciate the effort for cheering us up but it’s not that easy and it doesn’t really work that way for us.

I know how everyday is a struggle to keep on going and I’m not going to tell you what to do because I’m no psychiatrist. But we all just really need to find something to keep us alive and make us feel alive. I don’t know what it is for you but for me, I write, I play video games, I watch FRIENDS for the hundredth time, I listen to the same album for months now, and I don’t care what anyone thinks about it because it calms me down, and it makes me feel better. It’s different for everyone but we all have the same goal, and that is to get through the day. I wish I can tell you what you can do but like I said we are all just trying to get through life. We are all trying to figure this out. What I can tell you is that you’re not alone, I know that’s a cliché thing to say but it’s true. There’s broken people everywhere, just reach out and we’ll grab your hand, we’ll get through it together.


It’s nice how there are plenty of open discussions about suicide and mental health nowadays. Lots of people are trying to get help now, we’re talking about it now. But it’s still not enough, there are people who still gets uncomfortable about it but I guess that impression will always be there but at least, we’re finally talking about it. And with social media, we can start spreading information and awareness.

If you’re struggling, don’t hesitate to call for help.

5UPPORT JEEPNEY DRIVERS

Hello again everyone! I’m just here to promote and support my friend’s donation drive to help jeepney drivers in the Philippines who lost their source of livelihood due to the pandemic, now they are begging on the streets for some food to eat for them and their families.

During the quarantine for more than 3 months now they didn’t have any source of income, most of them rely on driving jeepneys to get on with their lives. This is not about working harder, this is about losing the only opportunity they have to earn and without the support of the gov’t.

So guys, if you could share this and even donate any amount please do. Thank you so much!

You can visit their facebook page for more info. https://m.facebook.com/5upport.5upport/
