Unique Roots

Emotions, melancholy, and apathy really affected me for about a month. I’ve been in the process of understanding my emotions and melancholy for quite some time. However, I haven’t experienced intense apathy in over six years. This was a rough time. I didn’t feel passionate or excited about writing these blogs, working on my website, …

Relationships That Matter

We have different types of relationships. A phrase says that people come into our lives for “a reason, a season, or a lifetime.” I’ve learned so much from people in my life.
