Step Back to Learn

By Sanjana C., India

"Sometimes, we need to take a step back, to understand everything, to see what we've been through."

We need to let go of what is not ours, not ours to hold, not ours to own; feelings, people, insecurities, self-doubt and a hundred thousand irrational seeds of negative thoughts.

In this razzmatazz, it's okay to only treat your eardrums with some Debussy Claire De Lune or say some dark academia.

This is no race of productivity. We need to give ourselves the love we deserve, not thinking downhill of our own selves. Despite the various facets of the global pandemic, exploring our inner selves rather than pushing it would be a better phrase.
