Season 1, Episode 6: Bullies, bland tears, and breaking off.
Okay, so, I know reading this, you might be surprised(I mean, law is on break innit?) Well, physically, yes, but thanks to the internet we can all communicate like we’re practically together, in the same place.
So, I don’t know if you might probably relate to this, but yeah, you know how it feels when you’ve lost all vibes, and then the little you managed to store for the rainy day is trying to be snatched away from you? Well that’s how I felt.
I don’t want to retell the story, because of the nightmares they come along with, instead I’d day this. I have grown and I have learnt. I have stumbled, danced on my own as the weirdo that I am in a wild party(yes, I mentioned not having regrets), I have cried and shed spicy tears, I have had migraines from juggling too many things, and I have suffered heartache from betrayals from friends.
Gradually, along the line, the heartaches stopped, the migraines seized, and everything became right. But just when I thought it was over, they struck again. Hitting flesh and bone, and then and there, I decided, no one would get to me, ever. No one has the power to change my emotions to suit their whims. I am happy, I am proud of all my actions, good or bad. I will always stand up for myself and ‘resist the urge to shalaye’ to clout chasers. Never again would they hold my happiness in their palms.
I have learnt to improve myself and I have gotten comments from people who cared about how I acted well, how I didn’t react as expected, how my faith is getting stronger with everyday passing, and how my thoughts are getting clearer.
Now, I can look at the screenshots and laugh, and I can tell the story without bitterness in my heart, but it doesn’t mean I haven’t learnt. Oh, hell no. I have learnt to keep some people where they rightfully belong, I have learnt my allies and separated them from my foes. I have learnt to see through false statements, I have been on a whole hell ride.
Before I go, I’d just like to say, dear cruise catchers, my prayer for you all is that you find the peace you so desperately need. Many people have committed suicide because of this shitty thing known as catching cruise. Words hurt, they penetrate and they kill. It might be an hour of fun for you, but a month of agonising pain for the recipient. Please learn to keep your horrid opinions to yourselves. Yes, we are all entitled to our opinions on matters, but not on people lifes. Say no to body shaming, mind your business and sip any beverage of your choice. And lastly, snitches get stitches, because they are bitches who end up in ditches.
I promised myself I wasn’t going to write about this, but then, they got the better of me, my little friends. They also inspired me to start a series.
We’d be unleashing a series, titled ‘Awakening: A rebirth story’.
It’d run from the first of September to the 17th of September, when we’d have the finale. You can trust me to deliver amazing content. More details about it will come later.
Till then, I love you and I’m always thinking of you.
