Home LIFE Personal

Personal

Blogging is a platform for sharing thoughts, opinions, observations, and personal experiences. Like many others, I started blogging by sharing my personal life experiences too. Sharing life experiences seem to be the easiest thing to do, but in reality, that’s not true. For one, it’s unlikely that people are willing to share their weaknesses. Furthermore, people tend to want to show their best. Because of that, writing about my life is the most difficult subject for me. Back when I started several years ago, I found myself venting even without meaning to. I was also seeking affirmation that the personal issues were not because of me. But those were the wrong intentions. Not only did that attitude stop me from moving on, it was as if I was dragging everyone else down with me. Those early years in blogging were among the darkest times of my life. From the pits of nothingness, I emerged a stronger person who believes in passing values. Today, I no longer write because I want the world to sympathize with me. Instead, I hope to use my stories to spread positivity.
