Hi, my name is Eri. I am a K-pop fan and we need to have a serious talk about our oppas.
My last entry was fourteen whole days ago and as much as I feel bad for not writing for that long, I needed the break.
I was watching Tessa Violet’s video about the Enneagram the other day. Up until that video, I had no idea what The Enneagram was. With a bit of prodding and googling though, I gradually started to understand it.
I’m feeling particularly thoughtful and not necessarily in the good way.
How are you? This must come as a surprise for you. Nobody asks you how you are anymore, right?
Yeah, I get that. Nobody asks me how I am either. They just go straight to the point. What they need. Who they’re looking for. Where to get this or that. I think people just open with a “how are you” to be polite. Nobody actually stays long enough to get the reply.
But I want to know. I’m here to listen. How are you?
How are things going for you? Are you well? Is everything alright?
Are you afraid to answer that it’s not?
That’s okay. I’m not alright either. I have a lot on my mind. A vast majority of it doesn’t make sense or have any significant relevance but hey, there they are anyway. And that’s okay. It’s okay to not be alright. We don’t owe the world to be consistently positive. Things happen and we need to remind ourselves that not everything is going to be a cheerful leap down the rainbow slide. And that it’s okay, normal even, to be unhappy sometimes.
Consider this your reminder, maybe.
So, yeah. How are you?
Do you have something you want to get off your chest? Something troubling you? Something you’d like to share?
I’m here. Let it out. I’m listening.
Hi, my name is Eri and I have a complicated relationship with mental health.
On my desk, I have a box that’s full of random questions. This is a literal box of questions. I keep it around as a spring board, in case I run out of creative juices for a blog/vlog or if none of the pending ideas I’ve got brewing are ready to pour.
Today, I’ll be using my box for the first time and I’d like you to join me!
