I love my friends. Really. Not because it’s that time of the month. I love them for dealing with my crappy identity crisis. I love them for being crazy with me when I feel like it. I love them for listening when I don’t really have anything to say. I love them for all the comfortable silences that we don’t have to fill even if it’s on the phone. Yes, silent phone conversations. Do you mind?! I love them for understanding me without me having to say much or anything even. I love them for being themselves in this strange world. A7ebkum yal zift w 7ada thank you;*
My answer to the previous post would be either:

I think, therefore I write.


I think, therefore I cry.

I lie in bed. One hand turning my mobile over on its sides. The other hand curling a strand of my hair. And I think. I think, therefore I write.

Strange, isn’t it? This world. It’s just confusing. And it’s confusing me. And it’s questioning everything I do, believe, think, or say. Why?! Why everything?!

Why does everything have to be so right and wrong at the same time? Why do my loved ones have to go through heartbreak after heartbreak? Why can’t I make people who are down feel better? Why do I cry when it’s not me who’s going through hardships? Why are the rules of society ridiculously stupid? Why is literature underrated?!

I sigh. I turn over my mobile some more. I let it slide through my fingers. I turn it over some more. Silence. Just my phone against the covers. And in my head. Just my phone against the covers. And then, in my head, it’s me breathing. It’s me existing. It’s not me confusing myself on why the world is the way it is. It’s just me.. alive.

I continued this, but the laptop crashed, and it didn’t save. So, now.. It’s gone.

    ur identity crisis is normal, it’s just a phase that we all go through in life, it’s called maturing.
