You are not alone: Different hustle, same struggle


Do you know why they have support groups? Because there is something powerful when people come together t share their stories and draw strength from the shared vulnerability.  To know that you are not alone in your struggle helps us bring things into the correct perspective.  The correct perspective being: this will not break me. It is part of my journey, I will get through it and I will make it through stronger. Ever noticed how when you keep a struggle to yourself, it can consume you. It takes over your mind and before long has you feeling defeated, isolated (or at least feeling completely alone) and hopeless.

That is a lie.

There is nothing you are going through that is so unique a pain, it must kill or drain the life out of you. Granted, no-one knows exactly what you are going through. However everyone is going through something. Do not isolate yourself.  Be strengthened by finding the love around you.

About Plantain Periodicals

Hello! Welcome to the Plantain Periodicals blogs. The name stems from the kitchen moments I had with my friends at university cooking plantain and planning our lives together. I have used this space as a window into my mind and the way I make sense of all my experiences through writing.This is where I share those conversations and moments that happen inside my head as a young woman growing up in 21st century London. Hopefully you'll be entertained and also learn a thing or two. My main blog ad: My literature blog: NMx
