This post is in response to the Incredible Blogger Marathon Challenge hosted by Its PH, a challenge that I believe all you bloggers out there must try your hand at. Give it a go, guys!

This is the first of the ten challenges.

Human beings thrive on social interactions, and one of the many reasons why they do is the need for support – a word often associated with gentleness.

But support is as varied as the people who provide you with it. Some may choose to stay behind you, protecting you from all harm. Others may yell in your faces to make you see sense and coax your strength out of you.


What truly matters in the end is that you learn from people and situations around you to fight back and stand on your own feet. You may realize at that point that it was child’s play for your latent, yet strong self.

Acknowledge every form of support and build your own upon all that you learn, bringing out your true strength as you do.

    1. Hey!
      First off, so sorry that our comment-convos are on a weekly basis now but gosh college got so hectic, I do hope you understand!
      And that was so, so nice of you. I really appreciate that you’re putting away a part of your time to explore my blog, it’s just such a nice happy feeling to know it makes someone happy! Writing is fun, but so much more so when it takes me to great people like you. πŸ™‚

  1. I totally understand. I come on here so that I can vent off all the negatives out of my system. College does that to me, I guess.
    Hey, you went through my entire blog in a day. This is something I ought to do and I’m taking too much time.
    Yes, I know that feeling. It’s so nice when you write something and get some feedback on it and it’s even better when you find a person, who you would’ve never known if it weren’t for the blog, who resonates with you. They’re the best feelings.
    I’m definitely not great and since you’re saying it, I definitely don’t deserve that title. You do.

    1. Your blog was a song for the heart and I had such fun going through it I didn’t even take note of the number of posts I read! I do marathons like that, but do take your time. πŸ™‚ I sound a little selfish here, but it’s nice to see uplifting comments on a weekly basis, like those cups of coffee ya know. πŸ˜€

      1. Trust me. I feel the same way about your blog but my attention span is very limited and I don’t like doing things half assedly.
        And you’re really nice to say things like that. Nope, you’re not being selfish one bit.

      2. I don’t like doing things half-heartedly either, which is one of the reasons why I don’t take a sneak peak at blogs on weekdays from college. It’s such joy to read at leisure. ❀
        And again, thank you so much. πŸ™‚

      3. I forgot to include this in my other comment, but gosh I’m really flattered to know you told your friend that! I mean, really, I don’t even know how to express myself. It’s just such a heart-warmingly happy feeling when someone appreciates something I thought was so ordinary. πŸ™‚ Thanks Ket! πŸ™‚
