Not too long ago, I lost myself. I lost myself so much that I thought I would remain a stranger forever. But, no matter how lost you are, you can always find your way back. This is exactly what I did. Step by step, I found my way back to who I am and what I stand for. I won’t go into too much detail just yet. Let this be my way of foreshadowing what lies ahead.
There comes a time in our lives when we choose to take a break, or rather, we are forced to do so. We feel suffocated by the presence of people, we choke on our own words or even get tangled in our own thoughts. When you have been doing more things for others than for yourself, you are apt to fall flat on your face. This also happens when you have overworked yourself so hard that the only way to get back up is to take a long break. This is exactly what I did. However, little did I know when I decided to take this break that it would last a whole eight months.
Nevertheless, I needed it. And now that I’m back, I have the duty to express my gratitude to all those who warned me about burning myself. Rest is the ultimate key to any type of success, whether it be working out, reaching that bonus or finishing that novel.
Brace yourselves for some bare naked truth, shattering stories, deep emotions and blood tears. Also, be ready for satiric humor, endless laughter and a happily ever after.
