    The more I get out of my own head,

    the more I experience my own being, the more I accept and love myself as I am and become "full of myself", the less I believe in the notion of romantic love. It (romantic love) often requires a lot of sacrifice and compromise and I'm not willing to make those sacrifices in order...

    How Can I Be Happy Again?

    I have been dealing with depression for the past thirteen years. I can't even remember the exact day but it all started when I was seven years old. My mom was not really with my dad anymore and she met someone new. I didn't of it that much because I wasn't used to that change. A...

    since as long as I can remember,

    I've believed in love, I believed all things are possible with love. I wanted love no matter what dream i chose to chase. I just wanted love. I never got it, because maybe its just not there. Love doesn't exist in this world of mine, and its about time that i just give in to the...

    I forgot to love myself at one point in my life.

    But I came to the realisation that life is full of surprises, people change, relationship change and feelings change. Hence, I let go of the life when pleasing everyone became my habit and made my world go round. Goodbye old me!!! 😃

    Women are just not attracted to me.

    They never show signs of interest, no matter what I do. I think my looks are the problem. Some people say I look fine. But I'm convinced my looks are not OK. If they were OK, over 1000 women on match.com wouldn't have passed me over. I wouldn't have been rejected by all the...
