Happily Ever After

“… And they lived happily ever after. The End.”

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve watched movies of everything starting great, then getting bad and then being good again. I’ve seen many happily ever afters, from Rapunzel to Cinderella, Fiona, Aurora, Jasmine, Ariel, Snow White, Anna, Elsa and many more. When it happens, I’m overjoyed and can’t stop grinning or clapping. But the question here is..

“Am I living happily ever after?”

Well, no I’m not.

I don’t think I’ve gotten to a stage where I can attest to that. Happiness to me is frickle and really what you make of it. I am at the stage where I am just figuring what my life is, how my life is. I am happy for a lot of reasons but saying I’m living happily ever after would be pure fallacy.

Here’s the deal.

Do I believe in Happily Ever Afters?

There was a time I used to believe it existed and every time I was wishing that mine would hurry up soon. But now, I don’t believe because there is no Happily Ever After.

There’s always going to be bumps along the way but you can overcome it. Movies where they supposedly  live happily ever after are set in conditions which are practically and humanly impossible. That’s why they are movies, not real. And they always give a wrong expression of happiness. Happiness doesn’t always come after problems have been fixed cause if it were, we as humans would never have a taste of happiness.

Happiness is a choice you have to make.

Happiness is when in the middle of a crisis or situation, you say “I am not going to let you take my happiness” or “I am not going to lose my smile.”

Bottom line is we all deserve to be happy but there is no such things as being happily ever after. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. There’s always going to be something coming up, trying to steal our happiness but what matters is how we react it to it. We either let it take it away or we hold on tight and never let go.

Always remember Happiness is a choice.

You’re all amazing souls and deserve true happiness.

Be happy and stay happy.

First Impressions

Before I got into your heart,

Did I hit your wall too hard?

Now that I got into your heart,

Did I over impress you?

Do you really love me for me?

Or do you love me for what I do?

Sometimes I feel like I try too hard,

Too hard that sometimes I get ashamed,

Ashamed to look you straight in the face.

Call Me Karen

Karen is actually a fictional book, with some truths to it, that I’m writing. My writing is kinda off and on.

A little about the book..

Karen is a mixed race – her mother’s African and her father’s European (guess that makes her “Afropean”?).

That’s not exactly what the story is about.

Karen is sexually abused by her father’s younger brother from 7 years old till 8 years old. For a while, she succeeds in forgetting the entire event but there are some feelings that still lingers on.

When she got older, she starts to understand what happened and she falls into despair..

The feeling of worthlessness, helplessness and guilt overcomes her.

She thought of many outlets for relief.

She fell into depression.

Later on, she found out that what’s she’s feeling has a name… PTSD

She finds people with the same mental situation as hers online. She connects with them and feels home there.

Behaviours are too complicated for those at home and they misinterpret her a lot.

She falls deeper into a more darker stage where the only thing on her mind is SUICIDE.

Her trauma is revealed to her family but he (her uncle) begs for forgiveness and it’s all forgotten as quickly as it had been discussed..

Forgiveness she tried, but she couldn’t get rid of it.. It still stucked with her.. Her sad companion everywhere..

In the midst of all these, she juggles school, family and relationship whilst hiding the pain in her with a smile.

This is where my thoughts end. My will to write is slipping and I have no idea of literature much. I hope I get back into my writing groove, finish the book and probably publish it..


What do you think of my story? Do you relate to Karen in any way? What story are you currently writing?


Thanks! I’m hoping to hear from you soon..

Love,

Dys x

End of High School

Via Daily Post :Final

I’ve spent six years of my life at my high school with amazing friends and teachers… Those were the best years of my life.. I watch my younger brother every morning preparing for school and I miss it… 

White socks, neat uniforms, no nails, hairstyle- practically those things that annoy me, I miss the most..

I have regrets though..

  • Not running off to the field after school hours with my friends.
  • Being too obedient and quiet.
  • Enjoying school food only during my last year.
  • Snubbing most people in my class.
  • Getting angry a lot.
  • Disrespecting most teachers and arguing.
  • Feeling proud atimes.
  • Being maybe way too sarcastic.
  • Anxiety not to do fun stuffs.

But I have things I’m so thankful for

  • My BFFs
  • My friends
  • My classmates
  • My teachers
  • My Juniors
  • My past Seniors
  • My school clerical staff
  • My cordial relationship with everybody
  • My food seller
  • Ice cream seller
  • The mallam at my school front
  • My sick bay for saving my ass lots of time
  • My past and present principal
  • My vice principal who sometimes annoys me
  • My past love
  • Not losing anybody I know

These people raised me, this demented and dysfunctional teen girl, for six years.. I miss them already so much.. You guys are amazing!!! 

You are all family to me

#BTSS4Ever

I love you all ❤ xx
