Shhh! Don’t say Depression

I was told by a lot of people to not discuss about my mental health on Social Media. Here’s my take on it: 1. It may look too desperate: It is desperate. Sometimes a post like this is a cry for help.

Forgive Yourself!

"Forgive yourself." These words haunted her to the core. How can she?

Amidst all the … Continue reading Forgive Yourself!

There’s always a story

Adulting Rant!
