It's a peculiar feeling to look ahead and see so many unlived days yet simultaneously believe there isn't enough time to greet those days wholly. Not enough time to pause and wonder why this current reality is one that cannot be diverged from - a perception rooted in belief that being unhappy in what is known is better than embracing … Continue reading to you: the one who feels stuck
In an effort to make my online presence as a writer a bit more cohesive, I will be taking pieces of mine published on various platforms and adding them to my LipLiner portfolio.
