Thank You For A Sign

There was a flower resting outside my window. The wind blew fallen leaves and petal from towns away. One managed to stay whole, as pretty as it first bloomed, through the long journey while its friends and twigs withered with the breeze. I’d like to think it’s a gift from you. A sign I desperately …

January Thoughts & Insights: Redesigning My Life Map

It is the end of a decade. We either start out fresh and hit a reset hoping that 2019 will disappear in the rewind of our memories. Whatever way you choose to spend 2020, allow yourself to start something new or redefine what it means to kick in the new year. If 2018 was my …

Coming Out: I’m Here, Proud and Queer

I am bisexual. I don’t know the percentage I fall under because for the most part I mostly lean towards anyone I find appealing. Whether it’s their personality or how their presence makes me feel, gender was never part of my type. If you want to go a little technical then I can safely say …

I was thirteen-years-old when I had my first kiss.  It was wet. I didn’t understand what was happening. Was it supposed to feel this way? I’ve watched enough teen sitcoms and romantic comedies to know how a kiss should look like. Assuming it felt as great as having a killer soundtrack while you’re making out. …

Pieces of Peace: My Anxiety is not Romantic

  My anxiety is not romantic. My anxiety is not a fetish you can bring into the bedroom.  Someone told you that someone with anxiety is a great lover.  You believe because of my constant need of validation that everything will be okay; I will pour my energy into our relationship.  You are sadly mistaken …

Pieces of Peace: “saviour of a toxic romance”

In the long run, you’ll realize that there are a few relationships in life that’s not worth saving. Do not constantly remind yourself that you are in love. Or tell yourself that there is no one else in the world that will love and tolerate you because you’re only settling down with someone for the …
