If there is one thing that I learned this year, it’s that I don’t have to feel bad about feeling the way I feel and that following whatever it is that my heart desires isn’t selfish. I came to the realization that when it comes to my happiness, other people’s opinion does not matter.

Sometimes, life has its own way of giving you exactly what you need packaged in the most unexpected circumstances and it’s up to you if you’ll grab it and hold on to it or let it pass you by. In my case, I held on to it and fought so hard just to make it work. I had to, because if I didn’t, I would’ve lost my only chance at happiness.

I’ve fought so many silent battles and I had to keep reminding myself every single day that everything will be alright sooner or later.

This year, I fell in love with someone who constantly shows me that I don’t have to fight my battles alone. Someone who not only brings out the best in me, but also sees every flaw and still believes in me.

This year may have been full of twists and turns, but I still ended up where I wanted to be — with him.

2018 may not have been how I pictured it to be, but it was surprisingly everything I never thought I needed.

  1. It’s so hard to choose your happiness knowing you’re gonna hurt other people. Brought me back to the days before I found real love. It’s hard to decide whether to follow your brain or heart hahaha. I remember thinking “Well, if this is right, then lucky me. If this is wrong, then hello again, heartbreak. I’ll be the one to face the consequences anyway.” Hahahha. At the end of the day, as cliche as it sounds, life is short, and if we don’t choose what makes us happy, we might regret it till our last hour. Stay strong! 🙂

    P.S. Been reading your blogs for an hour now.

      • Same feels. Sometimes it’s okay to be selfish even for just once in your life, especially when you know that something like that doesn’t come into someone’s life often. Sometimes all the consequences are worth it. Thanks for dropping by! ❤
