Feelings — a word many, including myself, throw around on a day-to-day basis. “I have feelings for you,” “I have so many feels for Justin Bieber,” “I don’t have feelings for him anymore.”

We have so much regard for that word, we abuse it, and we let it consume us whole.

I hate it when people say they’ve lost feelings for someone or something they have been committed to. It shows just how much you prioritize yourself and how unwilling you are to sacrifice your own emotions for something good.

A relationship isn’t just fun and games. A real relationship requires commitment, and unending sacrifices have to be made because it involves two individuals, not just one. If you think the relationship is only based on your own personal interests then go grab your tissues and moisturizer because a true relationship isn’t about just that.

With that being said, I also cannot fathom why many people find it difficult to commit in a monogamous relationship. Be content with what you have, because once you are in pursuit of better things, you’ll realize that the best was always right in front of you, and by then it’d be too late.

I’m talking about both guys and girls here. Why can’t we all just stay faithful to one person instead of constantly craving for more? Must we cheat and have scandalous affairs and flings with other people?

If you’re not happy in a relationship, end it. No need to string the other person around like a toy.

And please. If two people in a relationship, let them be happy. Do not try tearing their relationship apart by telling them what they should or shouldn’t do, why they shouldn’t be together, or God forbid, try to talk them out of being in that relationship. That is the lowest of lows.

So many good things can stem out of love. Age is just a number. If only everyone put their differences aside and learn to love others despite their flaws, even marriages that start young can last. Don’t ruin the true meaning of love any further.

I remember being enthralled with the written word ever since my parents started reading fairytales to me at a young age. Seeing the power it has to influence behaviours and mindsets, I have learned, over the years, to translate my thoughts onto paper, in an attempt to positively disrupt the lives of others. Having my written works published in various forms of media has empowered me to weave stories that people can resonate with. I look forward to the life-long process of perfecting this craft, and hope to see my work touch the hearts of many in the future. This blog attempts to do just that - and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy penning it down.
