5 Mistakes You Are Allowed to Make at Least Once in Your Life
Testing the waters by just dipping your toes won't be enough to understand life's greatest lessons. Sometimes you really have to learn things the hard way and be at the forefront of heartbreak and pain and loss.
Trusting the wrong people.
Truth bomb: Sometimes the people you believe in the most will throw you under the bus. They will leave you hanging; they will disappoint and even consciously hurt you. It happens. It's just that our young, naïve souls tend to forget that our trust is something that should be won so we give it away like we give out polite smiles to strangers. When trusting the wrong people blows up on your face, know that it will give you the eyes to see who is worth your trust the next time around.
Being in a toxic relationship.
You will fall so deep in love you'd think you will never see the surface again. Looking into his eyes will drown you, and burying yourself in his arms will pull you under but you are young and you will let him take you anywhere. You will try to stay with him for as long as he wants you to even when your lungs are giving out. You will go with the current until you realize that you are out of breath. Remember that losing yourself in a relationship has a silver lining; the experience will make you realize that true love doesn't suffocate. It sets free.
Burning yourself out.
There are days when we feel invincible, infinite, as if nothing could stand in our way to achieving our ambitions. When we're on a stride, we get scared of pit stops for they could ruin our momentum and cost us the whole race. These are also the days when you'll overwork yourself and forego the things that make you feel alive. Making this mistake will tire the life out of you and you will be at your unhappiest, but it can also make you realize that life is so much more than being first place.
Overworking your body.
You'll never realize the importance of taking good care of yourself until you get really sick. Being young does not give you an excuse to be reckless and being at the pink of health right now does not give you the pass to make bad health decisions. Stop pulling off all-nighters for fun, start giving up all that junk food and see to it that you get moving. Your future self will be grateful!
Neglecting the people who love you.
Don't wait for the universe to make you realize what you have now by taking it away from you. Make it a point to call your parents. Go check on your friends from time to time. Say "I love you" more often. Just appreciate the people go out of their way for your happiness before it's all too late.
Mistakes are not all bad news! Making mistakes is part of life; even the best of us have faults. What matters at the end of the day is how you bounce back from them.

I started college with little to no support coming from my family. I can't blame them tho, life was pretty hard for us to afford college. I had to stand up on my own just to get by. Good thing I have a boyfriend who supports me all the way. But I can't let him shoulder it all, so, I had to accept sidelines just to finance my studies. It was fortunate of me to be blessed with talented hands to do crafts. And now, I'm so proud to say that I'll be graduating next year! So, let me share with you my works that helped me all through out my college journey.
This Quarantine has been a threat to my mental health since I had a lot of time to overthink things. This is surely a depressing time but I found my inner peace by writing. I found my way back into my first love, which is writing. And there I realized that this pandemic may seem worse but it will only get worser if you let it ruin your peace. With this, I wanna share to you my sanctuary.

WHO ARE YOU: PRELUDE
Sinungaling na ba ako kung sasabihin ko sa inyo ang pangalan ko? Hindi ako sure kung anong sasabihin kong pangalan ko pero may nagsasabi sa aking wag nalang magpakilala sa inyo.
May gusto lang naman akong itanong... Paano kung may makilala ka sa kasalukuyan na nagpapaalala sayo sa nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang nakilala mo sa kasalukuyan ay may tinatago pa lang sikreto na kahit siya mismo ay walang alam pero may kinalaman sa iyong nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang dalawang ito ay may koneksyon? Anong pipiliin mo? Ang nakilala mo sa nakaraan? O ang nagpakilala bilang ibang tao sa kasalukuyan? Past? Or Present?
