Battles

How many battles in life do you have to go through to win yourself back? ©ZeinaA.G

The Struggle

I’m struggling to learn that you can’t really save the ones you love from making mistakes. You can’t protect them and shield them from life. It terrifies me and shreds my heart into pieces that I can’t prevent a lot from happening. However, I’m certain that I can only show my loved ones unconditional love and…

Value of Words

One positive word can build a staircase to an entirely new world of hope and beauty. It can make you soar towards your dreams, while one hurtful word could repeat in your head for years. One deceitful word from someone you trust can cause a lot of harm. It’s discouraging to feel that this tiny word…

The Past

People go through a lot and it’s not always one situation at a time. We can hurt immensely by being too hard on ourselves and it starts with the way we judge our downfalls. Sometimes we feel so numb when it’s all happening at once and we want to hide from the world. We feel…

The Drive

Even a simple drive on the seaside road with music blasting on the radio was calming. Her lips curved into a smile as tiny raindrops splattered on the windshield.

What if…

I think it’s kind of sad that we spend most of our lives hiding behind this shiny and stunning mask which reflects the perfect life. You lie to yourself that everything is okay and everyone wonders what happens when you break down all of a sudden. You keep this mask on for the longest time…

Hollowness

There is this hollow sensation I could never fully comprehend. For the first time in my life, I’m not rushing to fill it up. I’m not wishing I was somewhere away from it… I’m simply breathing love and compassion into it’s dark corners, as I walk slowly through it, one tiny step at a time….

Vulnerability

Vulnerability: I’ve learned you can’t run away from it. You need to process it, even if it reveals a hidden side of you. I’ve learned you can’t shut it out, or build a safe wall around your heart to keep it out. You simply allow it to expose all the rawness that lies within you. ©ZeinaA.G
