How do I?


98A37E4B-8A04-4057-AE64-35CE2C42D703.jpeg

How can I untangle these thoughts of mine?
A beautiful mess
A lovely chaos

How can I make sense of these confusions?
Seamless thoughts
Imagined reality

How do I differentiate fantasy from memories?
Desired outcomes
Unsatisfied wishes

How do I decide the course of action?
Dreadful decisions
Fearful confrontations

How do I choose between perfect alternatives?
Scary what ifs
Uncertain future

How can I do so much at once?
Different priorities
Urgent needs

How do I do it all?
How do I do it right?

    These are my thoughts too when new cycles begin but I could not say it so well!
    Maybe wise people’s decisions are always born out of chaos…

  5. Hey listen Todo,listen!:P
    This is about the new life-new college ka confusion you’re talking about, is it not?*expectant raised brows*
    I felt this way,and a little more.That’s the reality of life,don’t you think? Every new thing,every new situation freaks us out.We stress over it for months.And when we are faced with the reason for our pathetic condition,we realise it wasn’t all that it was hyped up to be.It isn’t all that bad.Do not fret,girl!You’re gonna be just fine:D

    P.S. Feel free to point out that I was interpreting your words all wrong.I am wrong sometimes,you know.I don’t mind.:P
    Lol

      Haha that is so sweet Akku! :*
      I had written this poem earlier actually.
      I was not that stressed about all of this then.
      But right now, this tension is magnified! Can’t wait for it to get over.
      Hopefully, everything will be fine πŸ™‚
      You are really sweet.

    Dont try to make sense of the lovely chaos. I know it sounds terrifying to continue in the chaos. But sometimes you just have to roll with it.
