Don’t Be Cruel to Yourself: Embracing Self-Kindness

In the journey of life, we often find ourselves navigating through a labyrinth of expectations, challenges, and uncertainties. Amidst this tumultuous terrain, we encounter a relentless companion: our inner critic.

Rindu ini

Tiba-tiba saja, aku benci dibatasi oleh tembok kamarku
Aku benci melihat ikan mensis ku yang selalu tenang didalam aquarium mungilnya

Dan begitu tiba-tiba, rindu yang menggunung, yang menyemak, menarikku kepusatnya seperti lumpur hidup, memelukku erat hingga aku kahabisan nafas.
