I know it’s been a while that I last posted another blog. It’s been a quite hectic period for me in the sense of personal and college university reasons. Writing my thesis has taken so much of my time and energy, and finally I’ve submitted it. It’s been a roller coaster of ups and downs, but I have managed to get myself together.
I’m not the type of person to expose too much of my private life publicly. What I know for a fact is that there’s always a reason for me to keep going on. Whatever happens, will happen for a reason. I always believed that something meaningful might happen in the future. So regardless of my lack of self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-doubt, I will definitely strive in the path that I have always been looking for. I’m about to enter a new chapter in my life that I believe will affect me either way.
I have been feeling and I’m not the only one feeling this way, I used to mention this before, that this transition of life is affecting all of us: mentally, physically, and financially. This crisis has turned so many people’s lives around from happiness to despair or from despair to happiness… Every individual’s situation has its own issues to manage or to fix it. Talking about resilience has made me think about the thesis that I wrote. I’ve been thinking about the refugees who have to cope with a lot of hardship during and after the war. Their resilience is incomparable. They inspire me to keep moving and believing that there’s still light in the moment of darkness.
Hearing so much news about the number of deaths due to COVID-19, unemployment, burnouts, isolation, racism, xenophobia, etc. really affects me mentally. This is the problem when I’m too drawn by the news and social media… With so much going on, I need to keep reminding myself to take care of myself while still being vocal and bring awareness about difficult topics. My level of sensitivity can be very overwhelming and I need to take a few steps backward and allow myself to make time for myself without being on my phone every few hours.
This rehab from social media is really needed at times. I need to start sorting out my own life and plan my life to achieve the goals that I set for personal development. The support and the help I keep having, will help motivate me to keep moving forward.
