When I try and remember my life throughout 2019, I remember it being a very emotional journey. I remember going through a range of mixed feelings that led to confusion, disagreements in relationships, chaos in my mind and a very blurry and vague picture of future. With few relationships lost, few friendships broken, few identities revealed, and a few dreams shattered, I finally get to conclude 2019 with a positive note. I embark 2020 with many friendships formed and strengthened, old relationships rekindled and evolving new relationships. I’ve realised that forever can last only for few years and few weeks can last forever. Broke some hearts and had my heart shattered multiple times. I’ve realised that family can transcend broken promises, can heal from deeply scarred wounds and can be ever so forgiving. Through this year, I’ve learned to believe that I’m the only one that can validate myself, motivation lies within me and not in some random googled blogpost. Your beauty and soul isn’t measured by how many likes/followers you have, your outer appearance, whether you fit under certain beauty standards; but is measured through if your heart can feel a tiny bit of pain when you see someone cry, if you feel obliged to help when you see someone fall and if you can standby the promises you made. 2019 was a year of setbacks, heartaches, rejections and failure but also a year of breakthrough, contentedness, acceptance and improvement/accomplishments. I promise I’ll continue to love myself more, put myself first and do better in 2020.
