Be Kind, Rewind

Be Kind, Rewind

Memories can be a tricky thing. We are so quick to decide what to pick and choose to keep and what to let go, but the brain doesn’t always allow you such kindness. We are cursed for forgetting the most important joyful little moments that shape us. We are cursed even more so for remembering … Continue lendo

Marriage for marriage’s sake

Being an unmarried woman on my 30s with no kids and a stable relationship that is 3 years long by now, I get bombarded daily with the question “why aren’t you guys married yet?”. I’m not the only one, my boyfriend gets that question as well on a daily basis as if this is anyone … Continue lendo

Half the world away

And, just like that, we’re saying goodbye again. It is quite amazing how 6 months can go by on a heartbeat while the 15 hours of flight that separate us last forever. I feel strangely homeless in the house I grew up in. The bedroom I once designed looks like a generic Airbnb now because … Continue lendo

Last First Date

Three years. Three whole years gone by since my last first date. Sounds a bit funny when I put it into these words, really, but how else could I possible describe what today means to me? I wouldn’t call it an anniversary exactly, because it wasn’t the beginning of a relationship, was it? No, it … Continue lendo

Hands and knees

“This has nothing to do with you” I told him again and again over the past week. That’s the thing about past relationships – they will leave bright, showing, permanent scars even years after they are finished. We have to live with them, deal with them, so we might as well own up to them. … Continue lendo

33 years in a Row

33 years in a Row

So another year goes by and it’s the eve of my birthday again. Whop freaking doo. I hate my birthday anyway, haven’t had a good one in over 15 years. I don’t even try to celebrate anymore because I’m so sick and tired of disappointment. I’m not a friendly person, I’m not surrounded by people … Continue lendo

My pain and his

I’m tired. No, wait, let me rephrase it: I’m exhausted. No, still not enough: I feel like I’ve been run over by overweight white elephants made of led. That comes closer… Spent most of my day in the hospital. Not because I’m sick, but because the love of my life is and, somehow, that feels … Continue lendo

Reality doesn’t disappoint

I’m angry today. It’s a random week night, the weather it off the charts hot and I feel a lot more angry than I should. I do. And I don’t think I need to apologise for it. I do have a sense of entitlement at this point. The more someone tries to argue me that … Continue lendo

Plus One

For a long time, I believed I knew everything there was to know about love. I was the person everyone I knew looked for relationship advice and I was proud of it, as if I had uncovered some special secret before anyone else. And then, it exploded in my face. Slowly, but suddenly, everything I … Continue lendo

It wasn’t me. It was Patricia.

It wasn’t me. It was Patricia.

I feel so tired. It’s not about physical exhaustion, no, it’s a mental kind of exhaustion. It’s this overwhelming feeling of over thinking and over analysing and trying to get in control of feelings far beyond my understanding. You see, I have this other personality stuck in me, she only really comes out when I … Continue lendo
