it's you not me

Sometimes men hurt me.

No. Many times men hurt me. But most of all I hurt myself. And it’s now time to fix this slightly chipped Ghadah, seriously. I’m seeing a therapist and I’m approaching my healing process (the one I should’ve started six or so years ago) with the gusto of someone about to assemble a new piece of IKEA furniture. It will be systematic, deliberate, pragmatic and full of note-taking. I’m getting an A+ on this, you’ll see.

Something sort of like this. My son Khaled and I have been playing around with my drawings/paintings on his programing app Unity Engine.

And done. I decided that Eve will grow old with me. And also, how about this streak in my hair? I usually part my hair right to left, so was surprised at how cool the other side looked! I decided to give her a similar stripe.

  1. I love love love the streak!!! It looks so bad ass but also so very classy and romantic too…

    I’m so happy to hear about your project to reclaim and thrive.. I have embarked on a soul journey since 2012.. and I am definitely closer to the person I want to be and the resilience ,boundaries and flexibility I want to have :)

    • I’m glad to hear that, Miti! I wish I started in 2012, but it’s better late than never, right? I have faith in what I’m doing and fingers crossed I’ll get there sooner rather than later :)
