💔

I carry around a broken heart but it’s nobody else’s responsibility to fix it but mine.

People like me don’t need heroes.

We need listeners.

Hey There!

Hey there! So, what’s up? I’ve subscribed to the Copywriting Dojo as of late and obviously, I haven’t been writing ever since I uploaded my first post. But after listening to one of Dojo’s webinars, I think… I think I’m starting to want to write again.

So here’s another attempt. Just a quick check-in to let you know that I’m still alive and kicking and that I’ve luckily managed to not have COVID-19 so far.

As you might know, I’m an introvert and most people identify me as “the most quiet person inside the room” or “Si Pat, yung (sobrang) tahimik.” Well, to be honest with you, that’s not entirely true nowadays but my point is that I’m still an introvert. And as an introvert, I like keeping things to myself…

… EXCEPT when I write.

When I write, I’d like to be as open as possible. I always see a blank sheet of paper (or a blank space in this case) as an opportunity for me to wear my heart on my sleeves.

In this blog, you’ll get to know me better. You’ll get to know my pains and struggles. I want to share my stories of misadventures, rejections, and failures with you, and why I surprisingly take pride in them more than anything else.

Writing is one of the ways in which I try to connect with the world because, as human beings, I believe that we all face heartaches and rejections. I’d like you to know that you are not alone.

Sincerely,
Nikki

Silent Moments

Time stands still for a heart that is broken and a time that stands still uncovers the pain buried underneath

Time stands still for no one but a broken heart, yet the Earth continues to spin with disregard to those who lay still, frozen in time
