The Fear of Being Alone

I’ve had this conversation many a times with friends. I thought I was alone in having a fear of being alone. Turns out, many of us have this fear. It doesn’t mean we like being around large groups of humans either. It only means we can’t be by ourselves, or don’t know how to be by ourselves, at home or outside.

Promises Were Meant to be Broken, No?

People who truly know me know that I absolutely abhor people who break promises. I also take pride in ensuring to the best of my ability that I keep my word. Even though I have siblings, I never really grew up with them because of the vast age difference we have. To (over)compensate for that,…

Fake It Till’ You Make It

Many of us pretend to fit in, to be normal. Standing out (for the wrong things) is not that fun. We lie to ourselves, to the people around us, to the people we think we love. We hide our true selves because we are afraid other people would not understand. We are a clusterfuck inside,…
