I almost had an affair with a man twice my age

I was in my early 20s and he was in his early 40s. I held back because I thought it would leave me haunted… as it turns out, I am haunted just the same. It makes me question if we really did have a full-on affair, would I feel more spooked, remorseful, and regretful… becauseContinue reading “I almost had an affair with a man twice my age”

Twin flame vs Soulmate vs Karmic

I’m going to describe the basic meanings behind these elusive terms some people, usually from the New Age community, toss around — twin flame, soulmate, and karmic. While definitions vary slightly behind each word, because they are all simply theories, this is what I’ve mainly gathered… First, all of these concepts relate back to theContinue reading “Twin flame vs Soulmate vs Karmic”

Love is green

Did you know that the color of love is not red — it’s GREEN! …? According to spiritual healers, the color of true love is actually not the bold red we commonly mistake it for, it is green! The body holds seven chakras, going from root to crown, from tailbone to above the head, throughContinue reading “Love is green”

A brief retelling of “Aida”

“Aida” (pronounced like eye-YEE-duh) originally began as an Italian opera from 1871. It was later adapted as a movie in 1953, starring Sophia Loren, in which the actors lip-synced opera recordings.

An open letter to a love that never happened

I am left with a million questions in my head. And with each question, I remind myself that there is no answer. Yet I still cannot help but ask, and wonder… I know that it was not the greatest start. It was a world full of darkness and lies. But within that void of confusion,Continue reading “An open letter to a love that never happened”

Thoughts on relationships & defending yourself

Today, I’m drinking a chai tea latte, very frothy! My mom would always tell my siblings and me not to date in high school, and she certainly had a point. Dating at such a young age, before you reach adulthood, is honestly dangerous. The whole “high school romance” thing is seriously over-romanticized. Not only areContinue reading “Thoughts on relationships & defending yourself”

Openness & honesty ~ with yourself, with your partner

We hide ourselves from the world, for a good reason. There’s a reason why we cover part of ourselves from the rest of the world, why we wear a shield of armor, why we remain partially hidden — it’s because the world is not understanding, the world is quick to judge, and the world isContinue reading “Openness & honesty ~ with yourself, with your partner”

The Fairytale ~ Masculine + Feminine

PART 1 Disclaimer: I want to write a disclaimer because I’m going to talk about gender roles and I don’t want it to come off offensive.
