unplugged, the beginning.

Hi there, welcome to my blog, my home.  🙂

Why do I write?

Well… I used to write to continue living, and to have something to hold onto and remember who I was. I used to write in anonymity, wanting to voice out my haunting thoughts, and yet afraid of being heard and judged.

When I was 15, all I wanted was to run away from home, and find myself. I questioned my own existence, my destiny, and my identity. I questioned why I continue to live, and wondered why I chose my own choices. But those questions produced bigger questions, which then led to self-doubt and the feeling that you are lost.

When I was 17, all I wanted was to escape loneliness, and to understand the true meaning of friendships, love, and individuality. But the older I get, the simpler my dreams become. When I’m 19, all I hoped was to understand what true happiness means, and how could I experience it.

Now that I’m 22, when I feel that I understand a little bit better of what it means to live, and a clearer idea on what is my part in this world… I want to write to encourage others. To encourage you.

I wish to be able to somehow ignite a little spark in your heart, and invite you to see the world for its beauty and wonders, despite of its imperfections. I want to share the joy in little things, and pause you from simply going through the motions for a moment.

No, I don’t pretend that I know all of the answers.

But I guess, finally, I am no longer afraid to speak.

I hope that through this blog, I would be able to share with you the world as seen through my eyes… and paint a little color over your own world. 🙂

  1. Yay! I’m turning 22 this year! 🙂 I definitely love why you write! Reminds me of my answer when was asked why I love to read and write: “I write to let the people see my perception towards the world. I read because I want to see the world in someone else’s eyes.” Here’s to a lfetime of inspiring others! 🙂

    1. Haha I’m glad! 😀 it’s one of the things I love about blogging: we get to “meet” people who have the same interest and dreams as us, and share thoughts to build each other along the way. All the best to you too! 🙂
