Depression is not something I ever hope to cure or rid myself of.


Today was a shitty day. Nothing bad happened, really, but every move I made felt weighed down by some kind of heavier gravity. My mind felt like a swamp, my thoughts lost in a yellow, low-lying fog. Every task seemed tedious. And for much of the day, I couldn’t shake the sense that, despite having days I generally enjoy, a best friend I very much love, and a smaller solar system of friends and family who undoubtedly love me, my existence on this earth lacked some kind of essential purpose. I felt illogical, terribly alone.

Law #3: Conceal Your Intentions

Hi, Welcome again. Today we continue with Law #3.

Book Cover [48 Laws Of Power: Robert Greene]

Law #3: Conceal Your Intentions

“Keep people off-balance and in the dark by never revealing the purpose behind your actions. If they have no clue what you are up to, they cannot prepare a defence. Guide them far enough down the wrong path, envelope them in enough smoke, and by the time they realize your intentions, it will be too late.”

I will summarize this Law into two part;

1. Use decoyed objects of desire and red herring to throw people off the scent.

2. Use smoke screens to disguise your actions

Part 1: Use decoyed objects of desire and red herrings to throw people off the scent

Law #2: Never Put Too Much Trust In Friends, Learn How To Use Enemies

Hi, Welcome! today we proceed with Law #2 from book 48 Laws of Power.

Book Cover [48 Laws Of Power: Robert Greene]

Law #2: Never Put Too Much Trust In Friends, Learn How To Use Enemies

“Be wary of friends-they will betray you more quickly, for they are easily aroused to envy. They also become spoiled and tyrannical. But hire a former enemy and he will be more loyal than a friend because he has more to prove. In fact, you have more to fear from friends than from enemies. If you have no enemies, find a way to make them.”

Keys To Power

  • It is natural to want to employ your friends when you find yourself in times of need. …

Law #1: Never Outshine The Master

“Always make those above you…

We cannot control how long someone chooses to love us; We cannot control how long someone chooses to stay.

Hey, Welcome!

You may start asking yourself like, why this? what for? this love? or there is another new version of love made? No… No… No, please.

I dedicate these paragraphs to all single ladies and those ladies who were hurt from their formerly relationships. Also, I dedicate this to all ladies who are still suffering and choose to hold up their boyfriends no matter what reason behind them.

So, take your seat, relax and enjoy, because we just need to talk about something. So, Welcome again Sis.

As I titled this; it is okay to want love.

We are human beings, and as long as we are human beings, we need to be connected socially, mentally, and emotionally to each other to protect our well being. We need one another.

You can be the most foundationally sound person, you can be…

He’s a mathematician, data scientist, programmer, hacker; but above all, he loves…


You overlook him at first.

He flies under the radar compared to other men. You’re not that attracted he’s irritatingly intellectual, a total nerd, somewhat of a killjoy.

But you reconnect later. Maybe it’s days later, maybe it’s a year.

He reaches out because of something interesting you wrote. It’s your writing, it’s always your writing that draws him in.

He’s not your usual type, so you better have no plans to fall in love.

You discover: he’s interesting, he’s fascinating, he might very well be a genius. When he talks about data sets, somehow it’s poetry to your…

I think it’s time that we should start to normalize transient relationships a little bit…

I speak with my mom on the phone quite a bit lately, especially because visiting each other has become more challenging this time. Honestly, I do a lot of the talking, and I think she likes it because she gets to hear how her son is doing and how his brain is working lately. But she still gets her fair share of words and advice in, and I think she also likes to know that I’ve “been mothered” every so often.

She says a lot of things: some of it is biased because I’m her “favourite son”, some of it…

If there’s one thing I’ve learned it’s that the people who matter will remain.

Hi FAM! Hope you are doing great and fine.

Listen, You’re allowed to outgrow people. Don’t feel guilt by doing so.

A concept that’s fairly simple, but one that’s personally taken me ages to figure out. I’ve always been terrified to hurt someone’s feelings. So much so, I’ve stuck it out in relationships (including friendships) that were more damaging than they were positive.

So, if you’re a sensitive sap like me, how do we resolve this?

What do we do when we realize someone we once loved has become someone we barely tolerate? How do we move away from the…

…I wanna share some secrets. Some might sound very scary, and hopefully, others will be the best news you ever hear.

Dear Girl Child, Hi..!

Let me introduce myself a little bit, My name is Brian Nana I’m single and I’m 6.2 ft tall. I use my free time to write some crazy pieces of stuff which later turns to be loved by the majority. Also, I use it to read some books (hard copies as well as soft copies). I love to read more about fictions and autobiography books. I am a good friend but a bad company, I love the chaos. Call me your Brother from another mother.

Dear girl child I am not a motivational or inspirational speaker…

…I’m not trying to cause drama where none exists. I’m only trying to protect my heart…

Dear Someone’s Daughter Hi..!

Wanna say something don't get mad, please listen to me…

You could send me a text message with only one or two words and I will still overthink what your sentence meant. You could smile at me from across a crowded room and I will overthink what the look meant. I wish I knew what other people were thinking because I spend so much of my time trying to read their minds (that’s why I am a mind flayer).

I’m sorry if my overthinking makes me difficult to love. I’m not trying to cause drama where…
