Find


I’ve wandered around, person to person, knocking, from one heart to another. I searched for pieces that went missing, parts of me I’ve given away, seeking acceptance, accepting judgements, craving validation. Sympathy ain’t cheap, I tell you, you have to earn it. It ain’t honest either, they just show it. The more you want something, the more you gotta give. Parts of yourself. Some take your peace, some, your grief. When you look back and see, none of those were worth losing your sleep. I stopped moving and I stumbled upon me, what I needed were here all along. Inside me.

And I said “keep looking”

  1. This one blew my mind away.
    This is so so relatable.
    You know I’ve obviously learnt it from you, I mean for example, you don’t write to seek validation, you don’t care if anyone reads or not, you write it because you want to.
    Similarly, I have over the years tried to seek validation from people and then there comes a point when you realize-

    You are your own hero and you gotta seek validation from you and noone around ✨
    Beautiful beautiful post!

    1. I was there too. I sought validation and got ridiculed and humiliated at times. Nobody actually cares and I realised it way too late.
      I’m no hero, not even to myself but I don’t seek approval and appreciation. Makes it easier to live and get by.

    We are on an overload of heavy emotions that moves in a continuous loop of entanglements. It’s exhausting enough to bare. But when self-realization hits hard, the mirror changes the reality we burden ourselves with. Rightly said. In the end, everything that we urge for is within. 🌸

    1. Emotions are heavy when you add weight to them. They’re usually light and fickle.
      You choose what you worry about.
      Thank you. 🙂
