This too shall pass

Jeepers creepers Recently, I’ve been stuck in a rut of sorts. You can read all about it here, if you haven’t already.

It has come to a point where everything I do just goes back to the fact that with every step I try to make forward, I am being pushed ten steps back by the repressive system.

Everything about this is exhausting. It was supposed to be my final semester, my final push– before I begin my foray into the real world.

Being someone who is prefers instant gratification, it frustrates me that I am unable to reap what I sow as soon as I had hoped.

It definitely does not help that I am still putting in more effort than people who will be graduating before me, all for the sake of good group assignment marks.

Through it all, the phrase that keeps repeating itself in my subconscious is “this too shall pass”. I know that I am not alone in this, I know that there are people who are facing similar issues, and these four words are a source of comfort for me.

So if you are feeling the crushing weight of your workload; remember– this too shall pass.

If you are facing your quarter-life crisis and are unsure of what lies ahead of you; remember– this too shall pass.

If you are filled with doubt, anxiety, and fear; remember– this too shall pass.

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.
