Learning How To Walk Again

“Life brings you to your knees. It brings you lower than you think you can go. But if you stand back up and move forward, if you go just a little farther you will always find love.” – Isabel Duiaz (Life Itself)


It has been a couple of months since we last spoke and my life has drastically changed since then. So as per usual it’s time for a miniature “Life Update”, before we resume to normal programing (I hope). The timeline of these following events is a bit off and this is just a mere pinch of what has been going on. Life has brought me to my knees, the past couple of months have been really challenging for me but I’m slowly learning how to walk again, taking it one step at a time. I’m guaranteed to trip and fall a couple of times but I’ll get right back up. Here goes the update☺️:

  • I think you were around the time I met “Ben” who is now my ex, we lasted for about 6 months. We had our ups and downs.
  • I stopped being a taxpayer on the 6th of July.
  • The tinder guy came back and we finally met at work, our work stations were directly opposite one another. A month or two after I broke up with my ex we tried pursuing a relationship but it didn’t last long.
  • I lost my oldest sister, she was turning 31 on the 24th of July which then became the day we buried her. It’s still surreal to me.
  • I have been rejected by 10 jobs already.
  • I’m currently working towards being a Kindergarten teacher. Which is a career path I’ve never dreamt of pursuing.
  • I ended up cutting all of my dreadlocks at a certain point.
  • I have a dog her name is Lucy, of course it’s a stuffed animal but this is the first step of combating my cynophobia.

  1. Hello there. I read your post. I liked it. I am a guy who just gave up on his life an hour ago. I wish my remaining strength to you. This will be my one last comment on WordPress.

  2. lots of changes which is the way of life. anyone can take the easy way out but it is the right one to stay the course and know that the road of life is full of bumps, turns, and all sorts of detours. we build on the bad to strengthen the good.
