Hello, friends from the internet!
Today’s post is a celebratory post, yes, I am celebrating a very special occasion.
My Third Blogversary!!
This year has been crazy, challenging and overwhelming. But hey, it’s a process, a way towards becoming my best self, right? I took a break from every social media platform, every single one. Utilised all my energy towards getting better.
This year I decided to seek help for my mental health, it was both a very scary and the bravest thing. I also decided to speak about my struggles and that’s when I realised the beauty of this community. I am truly blessed and I don’t know what good karma is paying off, you guys are amazing! The support and love that you guys have given me are precious to me, I am indebted forever.
If I look back to the happy memories of this year, nothing tops the relief I felt after my first session at the therapist office. I also learnt how to swim, I went from sitting on the edge of the swimming pool to diving into the deep end, it was a very empowering experience. I saw the beaches for the first time ever, I was mesmerised.
I met so many special people this year, who gave nothing but love to me. I also made some really good friends, people who get me, who want the best for me.
Let’s take a look at my favourite posts that I made this year.
This is the first post I made after taking a long break. Opening up about how things have been made it even more real. I still remember it took me weeks before I finally pressed the publish button.
I wrote this one while waiting for my therapy session. I was in a very vulnerable state during this, I remember crying while re-reading it before publishing it. This is the truest I had ever been and it was a scary feeling.
The classic recipe of choosing yourself before a relationship. Things you want to say but you don’t, the one big heartbreak of your life because there’s nobody to put blame on.
Giving your heart to someone is scary and beautiful. You are helpless, you can’t do but love them and wish that they love you back. This post talks about that wishful thinking.
The theme of this year was self-love and to ease out the entire process, I prepared a guide to help you prepare a self-care kit.
This is the annual birthday post of my late best friend. She was the most beautiful human, and the best friend you could ask for. She is a huge part of my life and will always be.
If you have any confusion regarding taking yourself out on a date, this is your go-to post. Follow the simple steps to practice self-love, after all, it’s the best kind of love!
This post took everything I had and some more. I have never discussed with anyone how bad a rough night could be. The struggle, the confusion and the emotions, I penned it all. Was it easy? No. But I got messages and comments from people who go through similar nights and they still get up the next day. Because we are warriors!
This year, I continued my blogmas tradition. The theme of this blogmas was mental health. On all fifteen days of blogmas, I talked about the things that I have learnt so far and the things that my doctor told me.
Thank you for being a part of my year, for supporting me and for appreciating my writings.
Love you guys!
