I’d been really down from Friday-Sunday. I did something that I’d never thought of doing before because I wouldn’t consider myself a nature/outdoors person. But I went to a lake/park with the family Sunday afternoon. It was beautiful (this picture is not the lake we visited). While I can’t say it lifted me out of my depression, it was a nice change of scenery and routine. Plus I’ve decided to add this to my list of things to do. I’m saying this to say when you’re depressed, try something that’s out of the norm for you.

You might remember her as Christina Yang in Grey’s Anatomy or Eve Polastri in Killing Eve. But we know her as Sandra Oh, the first person of Asian descent to win multiple Golden Globes and the first Asian woman to be nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for the Emmys. A truly badass pioneer.
Fashion is what you buy. Style is what you do with it. Fashion says, “me too” style says, “only me.” I never cared to follow trends nor to fit in. Been a creator, trailblazer, trendsetter and fashion connoisseur since a youngin. Just ask about me.🦄 #graceamazin Southside We Outside. 🤘🏽 ⠀⠀ Hair by @the_hairstation

Heyyy! I'm Varsha! Being the awkward little ball I am, I always am at a loss for words anytime anyone asked the question "Tell me a bit about yourself" but hey, here goes. I studied to be a counsellor but ironically I struggled with an toxic/abusive relationship for all three years of it. After that relationship ended it took me forever to come into my own. I went from being a therapist to getting a lot of therapy....I was a depressed, anxious mess and I knew this wasn't just me moving on from someone, it was me moving on from how badly I had failed myself all those years. So it was no surprise to me to note how most of his ex's came out to be strongly feminist in their perspective, because I felt myself getting there too. I anonymously wrote about everything I couldn't fathom talking about on my poetry page. I feared even if I did talk about it, no one would believe me. But one day, I got an unexpected DM from Nandita...and she knew exactly what I was talking about. I always viewed my ex's ex's as a competition because they were constantly used as a standard of comparison. If I had a dime for everytime I heard "You aren't like them" over that relationship I would be balling hard. I fed on this sense of hype because it was his way manipulating me and ensuring that I knew I was an exception. But I'm not the exception. I am the rule. We all were. I realised that our experiences were a product of a long standing system. The only one I am in the mood to smash. This page is a safe space. It's for every girl who got played by the same guy All those who have been "that hoe over there" at some point and for every girl who should know better than to turn on each other instead of holding those who are responsible, accountable! Here's to us. How much stronger we are, together. 🌺✨🌻❤️👩❤️👩
