2015, I was diagnosed to have hypothyroidism & polycystic ovaries (explained my excess weight despite my efforts of losing it, irregular period, palpitations, hair loss, feeling tired most of the time and depression). I had to let go of the first man I loved (romantically). I didn't want anyone to suffer because of me. .
2016, lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident. Family-School-Work duties, didn't allow proper grieving. Latter part of the year, someone I knew from before came back and harrassed me again. Almost filed a TRO.
2017, I did something unthinkable to prove my intuition & nagging thoughts; what I found out broke my heart, felt like my heart was squeezed. Then, a dear friend was murdered. .
During trying times, I keep silent but my head is loud & busy problem solving . I am not one to go around telling people about my troubles. Sadly, my silence gave birth to speculations, interpreted to many things - mental case (no issue, I wished I was asked tho'), jealous-woman-coveting-someone-else's-husband, and more. .
They meant well, they cared, it's just people talking behind my back is one of my pet peeves. I value respect and honesty. I am forever grateful to those who reached out to me. .
A day came when I didn't want to wake up from sleep. But I resolved to get through it, so I channeled my energy into finding ways to heal myself, cope and recover . Arts, crafts, meditation, yoga, massages, visits to nature (mountains, and seas) and volunteering helped a lot. Also now, I talk/interact with people more with the intention to learn, understand and exchange good vibes. .
May we always be free to speak and live our truth . May we be kind always in all ways.
