By now, most of you'd know that I've a diary in which I write about my life, the lessons that come along with it and of course, my unfiltered thoughts and emotions. What you guys might not know is I've a notebook where I just vent out my negative feelings.
It serves as a coping mechanism for me when I've too much on my mind. Sometimes if something puts me in frantic state of anxiety, I write positive words on the pages over and over again until those words become stuck in my head.
Sabar - patience
Takdir - fate
I make no effort to make my writing presentable in this notebook. I keep it as raw as possible; making it nice and pretty kind of defeats the purpose of this notebook. Where I vent my negative thoughts isn't meant to be a pretty place.
If you're like me—introverted and artsy—having a creative outlet is a healthy way to deal with stress. I also happen to have a sketchbook where I randomly doodle things in it when I'm tired of working on a task for so long; it came in quite handy throughout uni.
Before you guys conclude that I'm a ball of unresolved emotional conflicts, can I just say I'm actually a rather happy person?? Haha. I don't usually dwell in sadness or anger for long because I find it unproductive and I've the BEST support system in the world—my family and friends.
