Unblocking Myself

Published by letterthief on

the ugly writers

Though letters are nothing but symbols with no meaning of its own, and words are just illusions made by man, no one can deny the power that words contain. Power to save a dying soul, ability to lead those who are distraught and power to restore what’s left to rot. And to be able to articulate words that resonate this power is what every writer has in the tip of their pen, in every corner of their mind.

It has been a year. A year without holding a pen guilty purely for one reason; writing. A year without my unorganized thoughts flowing freely into a piece of paper until it slowly blossoms into a revolting piece that captured every emotion I tried to convey. A year with pure frustration of not being able to write my ideas into completion. A year with nothing but exasperation engulfing my mind as I tried and tried but never really reaching anything. And so, as this dreadful year ends, here’s to the invisible barrier surrounding my mind ending as well.

Here’s to the new beginning next year will offer.

Here’s to more chances and overcoming boundaries.

And definitely here’s to writing more.

 

After a full year gone, let’s all wish The LetterThief will back in full swing. For now, you can visit her previous works by clicking this link or any of the thumbnails below.

Who am I? This is a question that we always find hard to answer because it’s hard for us to know ourself. Honestly, I am still on the process of knowing myself more because there are some instances where I still discover something new in my personality. Right now I can say that I am someone who never gives up but I know how to analyze things that I can do and I cannot. I am someone who can be a friend to people. I am also a person who will do everything to achieve something, and that is who… Read more »

Writing is one of the powerful tool you can use to save lives, not every of us has the ability what letter thief has, so if you are one of these lucky people who can express their thoughts freely using writing, don’t lose this opportunity, continue to inspire others, share your story and thoughts that can open our eyes to what is true, and also to letter thief I know that, In years of writing you already know yourself very well, you already know your capabilities, so i believe that you can do it, you will fully swing your pen… Read more »

“Who am I?” this question is one of the unswerable questions that left into my mind. Honestly, I don’t even know myself more. I always depend on what other think of me. But for me, I am the girl who is a risk taker. I am that girl who is not afraid of overcoming any circumstances that life has to offer. I am that girl who never goes out to church, but the faith I have to our Lord Jesus Christ can’t be measured. I love him because he’s my guidance. He’s one of the reasons why I’m brave. So… Read more »

It is really hard to tell other people who you really are, most especially when you dont discover it yet. But, seeing myself growing through the years, I can say that I grew up as a good human being together with its flaws. I commit mistake and make decision out of anger and happiness without being rational. I have a lot of fear most likely being judge, rejected and being a failure because of these fear, I usually isolate and limit myself from doing what I want and what makes me happy. I also lacks of communication and social skill… Read more »

I never thought that this question, “Who Am I?” will take me hours to assess my self. Because frankly, I am still figuring out what is the REAL ME. But of course, some people would say, “You’re strong!”, “You don’t even cry, do you?”, “You’re always smiling like you never had problems!” I always thought that happiness is all about the expensive things – those shoes, bags, clothes, jewelries. But as I aged, I realized, that happiness is all about a way of living and appreciating life. You act without expectations. You appreciate things that you have in the present… Read more »

“Unblocking Myself” this will raise different question for yourself from being who you are. Even me after being ask by someone “What do I feel about it?” A simple question that will make my self more uncomfortable. I always left clueless from being ask about myself. Showing different emotions not knowing if it was the real me or not. It’s hard to expressed myself to anyone especially being judged after it. “Who I Am?” I’m still discovering who I really am. Dance, Music, and writing this are some of the ways for people to express themselves, but for me I… Read more »

For once in our life, we had to have a chance to reflect with the question ‘’Who Am I?’’ In times of despair we contemplated how we would like to live our life; simply, by knowing who we are and our purpose in life. Well, I’m someone who truly believes in my fighting spirit and powerful will. I’m someone who’s confidence and determination is nowhere to be reach. I’m not that smart- just an average person who failed so many times yet still thankful that I can stand up, move on and make my parents proud in some other ways.… Read more »

“Who I am?” That’s the question i can’t answer easily. I am not sure of the answer to that question. I’m still on the process of knowing who truly I am. I know how I look physically, what are my talents, my strengths and weaknesses but I think knowing those things about me is still far from knowing the real me. I want to know myself deeper I want to see more, know more, understand more about me. It will be the greatest journey and adventure of my life to travel the path I think that will lead me to… Read more »

The hardest and most difficult question I’ve encountered in my life is asking myself “Who Am I?” Sounds easy but it always takes me time to assess who really am I. I am a man who is proud to be a part of the LGBTQ community who has a lot of amibitions and aspirations in life. I belong to those people who believe in the beauty of their dreams that one day all these hardworks, sacrifices and perseverance will give a great result that would definitely change my life. I am a person with tons of determination, courage and have… Read more »

To write is one of the powerful weapon that we need to do in this world. It brings a lot of advantages in our lives. We knew our history because someone wrote what they experienced, we understand lessons because someone wrote the book. even the Bible, if someone doesn’t share their journey with God, maybe we don’t have the truth that we have right now. Truth that anyone can be save and such things. And sometimes if we are angry in some things, try to write your thoughts to calm our mind.

This simple question ” Who am I?” is not a simple question anymore to anyone, not even a minute, an hour, not even a day or weeks that you can answer this question with the assurance of who you really are. I, myself can’t even put into words of who really I am, yes I have an ideas of who I am but am I really that kind of person? to anyone? in every time? No, I’m not. If you already know who you are , then you’re good but if not, let’s assess ourselves more because as the time… Read more »

“Who Am I?” I remember when I was young, my teacher asked me “who are you?” out of nowhere. Then I replied, “I am Lovely M. Gatmen, 10 years of age, living in…….”. The question of “Who Am I?” may be easy to answer by just introducing yourself but it is knowing your true self in a broader perspective. First, I would like to ask myself, “Who Am I in the family?”. Maybe I could say, I am a “black sheep” in the family because I am rebellious daughter. It is started when my mother focused on my brother because… Read more »

The question “Who Am I” is quite complex and the answer may differ and change in time. But today, I’m a student who is fighting for my dreams also a girl who loves spending time with her family. I grew up with complete family and friends in the street, playing different games outside. When I was in high school I am a student-athlete and now i’m just a “student”, I’m quite sad because I didn’t pursue my volleyball career. Yes, I play volleyball sometimes but my dream is to represent my school or to join competitions (again). Volleyball is one… Read more »

For the 18 years I breathe, I am fortunate enough to be loved and called as their Claud, Clauds/z or simply, Claudette. An amalgamation of wallflower and glad-hander, that’s how I sum up my personality. I’m a different person when I’m alone, but when I’m with my favorite humans, they always bring out the best in me. As I do all things I can to become someone else, I judge myself as a goal-oriented person at ALL times with a ♡ for my parents, Cookie (our dog hehe), myself and of course, for Him. From the people who knows me,… Read more »

What a wonderful writing! This work lead me to ask myself if do I really know who I am. At some point, I thought I already knew myself. Like me being a responsible person, full of compassion and being a jolly person. But as challenges goes by, I realized that I didn’t know myself fully, that I’m still in the process of discovering myself and learning I can do things that I thought I couldn’t and vice versa. This realizations leads me to a decision that I will be not afraid to take risks for me to know what attitude… Read more »

This simple question ” Who am I?” is not a simple question to everybody now, not even an hour, a day or a week and even a month that you can readily and surely answer this question, because it take years before you can completely know yourselves. Up until now I still can’t answer that question, yes I have an idea of who I am but am I really that kind of person? to anyone? in every time? No, I’m not. As the time pass by, we continue to discover something new to ourselves, something we don’t expect that we… Read more »

Who am I? Three simple words but it takes a lot of time to find an answer. But why it is hard for me to answer it? I have a hard time answering this kind of question because of the peole around me, their opinion about me, the way they look at me and many other aspects that even though I know myself more there are still times that I doubt about it because although I know what kind of person I am their opinion about me keeps running in my head. In this early stage of my life I… Read more »

There’s this thing called “writer’s block” whenever a writer does not know what to write or does not know how to write it the way he likes to. Frustration comes, of course, then it leads him to asking himself, “Why can’t I write anything? I surely have many ideas yet I can’t put them into words.” and “I am so good at this. Why can’t I do it now?” He does not know that having a writer’s block is normal for writers. It was the same with myself. There was a point in my life where I do not know… Read more »

I’ve been in the surface for 18 years, and live a life where I can make family proud. Doing things that I know I can achieve something that they will be proud of. ‘Who I am’ I sometimes ask myself, who am i really? Am I living my life? Am I living, this societies made up person? Am I living the life of the characters I recently read? Or Am I still me? Every night, before I go to sleep, I ask myself, am I the person I hated the most? Are those description of me from the people who… Read more »

“Who am I?”, the first thing that came up to mind is I am Jamaica Bonifacio from Marikina City, 18 years old. But when i repeat this question, it sounds more difficult. First, who is me for my 18 years of existence? I am a simple and an easy go lucky person from the province of Tarlac. I am the youngest among five and I am that kind of person that I will get whatever I want. But when I graduated in senior high school, everything has changed. I found myself as an independent person because my family let me… Read more »

If you will ask someone right this time whom in our squad he/she wants to be friend with, it will never be me. Yes absolutely, no one will ever choose me. I don’t know if they are afraid of me or I’m such a very mean girl in their eyes but what I know is they understand that I don’t want them. I used to be friendly back then in high school days but I realized this college years that not all those smiles, praises and sweet gestures are genuine and sincere. I am a very good friend but a… Read more »

I can’t really say who I am and what it feels like to be me because honestly, it hasn’t really sunk in yet. They have been always telling me “just be yourself and don’t ever listen to the pressures of today”. I took this advice to heart because I am that kind of person who has low saturation point in life before. I know how it feels to belittled in front of the crowd. I know how it feels to attend a Christmas party in school wearing a worn-out shirt while the rest of my classmates are wearing new clothes.… Read more »

“Who Am I?” This question is quite interesting, but honestly I’m not quite sure who really am I. I know my strengths and weaknesses, but I always been very surprise and confuse for what I’m capable of. Many people want to find and know their selves by going to peaceful places such as seas and mountains and by socializing to other people who shares their own interest. In some dramas, people sometimes must undergo in a life challenges enable to deeply know their selves. I believe on saying that “Life is not about finding yourself, it is about creating yourself”.… Read more »

Being able to know who I am is the hardest part of existing in this world. It comprises not just knowing myself but also knowing my purpose in life. It is indeed a long process, I guess none of us is completely and confidently aware about who we truly are. There is always uncertainty whenever we question ourselves about our real identity. Yet, we have the ideal perspective who we want to be and that is what we are trying to portray into our day to day living. In my 19 years of existence in this world, I admit that… Read more »

They say, letters do not have power. But when you combine them into words, they can be powerful. But words are made up of humans to communicate and to understand each other. But the power of the words is very strong. It can be used to save a life and sometimes words are so powerful enough that they can kill somebody. So let us be careful when we are using those words with people because we don’t know they may be offended or hurt on what we say sometimes. ========= “Who am I?” In my 19 years of living, I… Read more »

Who am I??? It’s so hard to tell who really I am. All I know is that I am very delicate and fragile, I get offended easily, and I’m such a moody person. I love making friends with others but I’m shy to approach them first. I get offended easily. I cry over little things, I get affected easily but still I prioritize others before myself. But as I grow, there I found that I am knowing myself more and it continues as I discover more things about me. I hope that someday I am able to tell others who… Read more »

Who am I? A very simple question that demands a deep answer.

Have you imagined waking up one day all figured out? Then what is to do when you figured it all out? There is beauty in not knowing everything, it’s ok to not have everything figured out because life doesn’t work that way. Honestly I haven’t really figured out myself but I… Read more »

This one really caught my attention. Just by reflecting to it, you will know that behind this piece of work is a person that is having a hard time knowing when to continue or not and knowing where to start all over again. It is hard losing myself in the process of finding the real me. It struggle me a lot because up to this now the question is still in there, “Who am ?”. Yes, I love to sing, cook, playing guitar.

For once in our lives, we face the point on where we ask ourselves the question “Who Am I?” and we tend to answer it by describing the things we thought others think about us or the things we actually do. Back then, I am a typical introvert girl, shy and quiet. But when I’m with my friends, I think I am at my best state and I can express myself freely but not when I’m with my family. I am the youngest member of the family and their spotlight is focused on me. At a young age, I lived… Read more »

Sometimes I’m also moody and ill tempered, have patience but not that much and I’m a person who don’t share my thoughts easily. I am also a girl who will do what I want no matter what it takes and the outcome be. Pen and paper… Read more »

honestly the question who am i? is like a simple question but when you answer it with truth it is hard. Sometimes you know other people than knowing who you truly are. But in this world you have to know who you really are because it is the only thing that can help you to ne happy in all things. You can be happy because you know what you really want. I am happy beacuse i know what i relly want.

“WHO AM I”- The question is simple yet intimidating. We people tend to be so timid about telling who we are to others and even to our own selves because we are scared to be judged. It has been years since that question interrogated me and now, it is interrogating me again. I admit that for years, I have been in denial about telling my realself but I know deep in my heart, there’s no other person who can know the real me aside from myself. In the popular song ‘This is Me’ by Keala Settle in the Greatest Showman,… Read more »

Some people will say different words to define who am I and sometimes I thought to myself that it defines me. But little did I know that only our self can define who we really are.

First of all, I want to tell that my mother was already in heaven. It was almost 3 years ago when she died. Since my father is always at work he couldn’t be attentive to us. So therefore, I myself need to practice independency and I can say that it was a little by little developed. The tradegy that was happened to our family was become a turning point to increase my faith to Jesus Christ. He tought me to be more dependent to Him and less of myself. He gave more opportunities such as a scholarship that gave me… Read more »

Who Am I? One of the simplest questions and still you will get an unsured answer when you asked me. Why? Because I’m not sure if I know myself too. There are characteristics that must be resolved and know by myself so that I can fully understand who I am. Im a 19 year old teenager from Bulacan. I live with my parents and grandparents, my mother is a Medical Technologist and my father is a Vehicle Custodian.
