Being Misunderstood

Image by: Ana Montana via

We, youth, want to learn and explore things around us. Our curiosity drives us insane and makes us want to try new things. We want to do more and experience more.

As a teenager, who is eager to learn and explore this beautiful world, I experienced being judged and worse, misunderstood. Sometimes I wonder if it’s wrong to try new things. I don’t understand why our society is so judgemental to the point that even if you did something that they don’t usually do, it’s like you’re a sinner. I know I’m still young and I still need their guidance but all I want is they let me explore and discover things on my own as long as I know my limitations. In my past years, I regret not doing things I want because I’m afraid to be misunderstood. I encourage you all, who are struggling because of being misunderstood to continue what you are doing, try new things, don’t be afraid. The only important thing you should consider is that you don’t hurt anyone. In my opinion, it’s better to experience things than to regret not doing them in the future. Live your life to the fullest but don’t forget your limitations. Society’s standards doesn’t define us. We don’t need to explain and feel sorry for the things we did because we want to learn. Let’s just explore. Be yourself. Just continue.

We are explorers and adventurers of this life. Don’t let people hold you back in doing things you want and things you love. If you are misunderstood by people around you, just go. You will be the person you want to become. Let them see your success despite of their judgement.

Healthy Weeknight Meals

Cooking can sometimes feel like a chore at the end of a busy day. It’s often tempting to throw a ready meal in the oven or call for take out. But preparing a simple and healthy family meal doesn’t have to be hard or time-consuming. Here are some quick wholesome dishes that you and your family will love. They can even be prepared in advance.

Breakfast at my House

During the week we’re often walking out the door with a coffee in one hand and slice of toast in the other, but on weekends breakfast is never rushed. It’s a late affair, sometimes spilling over to lunch, with lots of reading and chatter in between courses of fruits, poached eggs, honey and toast. One of our favorite things we like to serve when friends are visiting are buckwheat blueberry pancakes.
