Something that I think we have all thought at one point or another is if the amount of selfies we have on camera roll accounts for our ego. Does it matter and does it make you an egoist if you take selfies?

Honestly, no one thing defines our personality or the person we end up being in the long run. Our egos tend to be a subject that is very individual and sensitive. Just because you have pictures of yourself it does not mean that you are an egoist. At least not in a bad way.

You see, I have thought about this countless times, coming to a different conclusion each time. The buggest theory I came up with was that Selfies were mostly taken by the people who felt insecure in how they look and how others view them. This since they would look at the pictures, reminding themselves of how nice they look instead of being sure about their beauty, not needing pictures to remind them.

Now that I really think about it I don’t think that selfies are for insecure people at the same time as I do think that they are kept and taken to remind you of your beauty. There is this human need within us to be someone that people like looking at, even though we might not admit it. It is not as bad as it might seem. Vise versa, it is a good thing, especially in this day-in-age when we are surrounded with media, feeding us expectations all the time.

No, you are not an egoist. You are a beautiful being that deserves to be reminded of your beauty!

Throughout life we are constantly faced with things that scare us. Whether that is a minor phobia or something that has scared you for the rest of your life. Some fears are fears that will always exist in your life and that is something you learn to live with but some fears are some that you learn how to master.

What you have to understand is the quicker you get back at doing whatever might have hurt you at first, the faster you will learn to master it. You can not let the fear control you, you have to learn to control it.
Many times we become paralysed by a bad experience. Instead of taking control we lose it because we feel like we aren’t capable of fixing the problem.

The world is out of our hands and that is a fact. You will never be in full control over your life but that should not stop you from doing what you want to because of it going haywire once. Like the riders say, if you fall off a horse get back on it again. the faster you conquer your fear the faster you will master it and you will be able to live the life that you always wanted.

the road is long
almost too long to really grasp
it’s pure torture
yet i can take it

What’s the meaning?
i guess we only know when it’s over
when it’s gone

i guess it was never there
but everything happens for a reason
it was a reason to find the end goal
to find home

it seemed so right
but it wasn’t the plan
and i won’t blame you
because you helped me find home

home where nothing hurts

Writing. Something that almost feels like second nature. It is something that just feels normal by now. Every time a post comes out my mom always seems to ask the same, flattering question “How do you write like that?”. To be completely honest I have no idea. My fingers just seem to dance over the keyboard whenever I feel like something needs to be said, important or not.

I do not think you really understand that feeling until you start dedicating a bit of your day to just sit down and write something. It could be a journal with all of your thoughts, a fictional peace or even a poem. Writing is a way of expressing yourself that is nearly impossible to do in any other medium. It is a way to put all your thoughts down.

Therapy might be a word that pops up when it comes to talking discussing the benefits of writing. The reason being that no longer does your brain have to grasp all of your complex thoughts and aspirations but it is down on paper, reducing stress.

Just as any other craft people seem to use the old excuse of “But I don’t know how to” . If you really have the will to do something you will try and try until you get to the goal, no matter what it is. As humans we tend to stop before we even started. Just because words don’t speak to you in the morning does not mean that you are not a great writer. Everything has its time and writing is something everyone should try, no matter what level you are on. Everything evolves.

Something that keeps popping into my life is the need for motivation, especially when it comes to studying. When you have dedicated a big chunk of your life to studying you kind of have to live with it throughout your daily life whether or not it is something you wanted.

I have chosen a route that might not be the best for you but it a route that has always been in my thoughts. Sometimes the difficulty just pops into your head and you have no idea how you would be able to come with the stress and the tasks that you have accepted into your life. Even though your doubt yourself or your ability to chase your dreams no matter if it is academic or not you will be able to do it if you really want it and if the road was made for you.

We all lose motivation at times but it is whether you sweep yourself off of the ground or not that assists you towards your goal or away from it. Just remember that everyone around you is either going though the same struggle as you are or they might have already gone through it. A cliché is the quote It get’s better but it truly does if you let it. Life will reflect your actions into your life. Continue to keep your head up high. You will make it though this.
