I was a confident kid. Period. I can honestly say I never had trouble making friends or getting my teachers to like me. Responsibilities made me feel useful, classroom routines were needed and valued, and instead of shying away from my teachers’ atte...

Heartbreak is the worst. For every human heart that has experienced it – and I’m certain we all have at some point in our lives – we know how rough it can be. Some hearts crack wide open, some slightly shatter, all weigh heavy with the pain that come...

When my parents passed away, I was left standing at the crossroads of where to turn.

Earlier, anytime I was confused, I could reach them easily through a phone call or even a Whatsapp message to solve my problem. Now, I keep pondering ov...

It’s ALL HAPPENING. Do you feel it? It’s sparking around the world right now – the movement for self-love, self-care and personal development.

WOO! Humans are finally learning how to feel okay just being humans. They are taking the time to understand...
