The Person Behind The Blog ๐Ÿ’œ

Dear Reader,

Thank you for dropping by. It’s been a month since I opened this blog. I’ve made so many friends. I’ve learnt a lot of new things. I’ve smiled, I’ve laughed, I’ve cried (of happiness) because of this blog and what it had given me. I’ve enjoyed every second of writing, sharing my feelings, my thoughts and everything I’ve got with you.

So I’ve decided to open up, just a little bit more. This time though, it’s not about my family, it’s not about my blogging, it’s about me.

I’m an 18 year old, young woman. I’ve lived 18 whole years, which in my mind is a lot. I’ve had family and a few friends who’ve been with me throughout this journey. While I am truly happy about who I am, and what I am doing with my life, it hasn’t always been that way.

When I was in school (I’m out of school now, my final exam being in a month and a half), I was quite popular (not to brag at all, because I hated it) because I did very well academically and I played scrabble, and did a lot of extra-curricular activities. I tried it all. If you live or lived in Sri Lanka, you’ll know about Lyceum Wattala and it’s scrabble team. We had an exceptional team with all five members (including myself) being world youth scrabblers.

I had a huge circle of friends, some who I trusted a lot. Eventually though I came to realize that everyone hated me. I didn’t know why. I used to cry and cry and cry. I came to realize that everyone thought that I was a guy craze. I was not crazy over any guy, at all. I just happened to have more friends who were guys because guys were fun to be around, and we were just kids then (completely innocent).

So one day, my best friend (who is the love of my life now) asked me out and I said yes. He was my bestfriend before he became my boyfriend, so he knew everything about me. He was talking to some other guy (one of my closest friends) about me, and that guy had remarked that I wasn’t a good person.

Now, I didn’t mind random people who didn’t really know me, spread rumors about me. But when your closest friend, who you respected as a brother, tells something like that, it becomes a scar. It still is a scar. It’s not a beautiful scar, but I don’t mind it anymore. My friendship with that guy, kind of went down the hill from that day.

I didn’t just get over it. It haunted me for a while. For quite a long while actually. Time heals everything though. I learnt that much. It taught me to not let anyone who didn’t deserve it get into my head like that. It taught me to ignore rumors. It taught me to love myself. Actually, that one, my best/boyfriend did that. He taught me to love myself, just like he did.

I am very happy with where I am now, what I’m doing with my life, how I’ve grown as a person. I’ll end this little story I shared about me with a quote I follow everyday,

Leave a little sparkle, wherever you go.. ๐Ÿ’ซ

With Love,

Nusrath. ๐Ÿ˜‡

  2. “Leave a little sparkle wherever you go”. Very true. i’m so touched by ur beautiful writing skills. Keep on writing. There will always be people not supporting u and deriving flaws from you but its important to be patient and strong and only worry about what’s important and not what people say about you. Doing anything only according to what people say is actually extremely bad bcaz ur intention would be to please others and not Allah. Plus therr is always something to be thankful for in life. Good luck for the future and stay blessed ๐Ÿ˜Š

  3. Thank you for following my blog, Nusrath, and welcome to the blog world — I’m happy that it is already such a positive experience for you. In return for your guideline quote about leaving a little sparkle wherever you go (a very good thought), I’ll offer you the guideline quote from my own home page: “Traveller, there is no path, the path is made by walking.” Step by step, follow your truest, best instincts, and, step by step, you will create your own best life.

  5. Since I am old enough to be your grandmother, I smiled when I read that living 18 years seemed like a lot in your mind. You have your whole adult life ahead of you, and I can only imagine the things you will experience. At 18, you’re already making a positive impact around the world through your blog. Your positive attitude and example are contagious, and I’m so glad the internet made it possible for me to connect with you. Keep up the good work!

  6. Nusrath, people are such shits. In my 47 years, I learned just how cruel people can be; in part because I was often so cruel in my active addiction. It made me cynical and bitter. I’m so grateful for the 12 steps that taught me to love myself, and the people in 12 step fellowships that taught me that people can also be so very selfless and caring (by the way they gave so much of themselves to help me get clean and stay clean).

    I’m so glad you didn’t wait until you were 35 to start learning to love yourself. I waited that long, and I wish every woman could learn it as early as you did. You are beautiful (stunningly so!), and it’s more than just a pretty face–your spirit comes through in your writing and it is beautiful too.

  7. Just know that you won’t be seeing those people who were mean to you anymore once you have completed your education. I know that it is hurtful to experience it but come out a strong person than before. I know that you are much better than they are. Much love <3

    1. Anytime love! Thank you so much! You can subscribe to my email list if you haven’t. Also, I recommend you set up that widget for yourself. It’ll help your blog grow. It’s so weird when I see a comment signed “-N”. Like that’s what I’m supposed to be saying. ๐Ÿ˜‚

      1. Thatโ€™s a good suggestion โ€“ Iโ€™ll figure out how to do it ASAP ๐Ÿ˜Š. I wish I could have a better answer for you on that but so far all I have is laziness in having to type out my own name ๐Ÿ˜‚

  10. I enjoyed reading this. It is true the number of friends is insignificant, what matters is the quality. One good friend can make a positive difference in your life while sometimes trying to juggle a million friends can be draining. It’s kind of like your latest article about “likes”. Thank you for sharing.
