**Reblogged**How To Cope With Anxiety Without Medication


Anxiety and depression, silent but very disastrous, one might not often know what you are experiencing but anxiety will have you in its clutches before you know it.

In the end its all about accepting that you cannot control everything around you and you need to let go and accept things as it is sometimes. The journey to realize this is a personal one. Others can only be there for you (most aren’t though – the sad reality) and you have to find out on your own that its okay firstly, to be like this and secondly, that you cannot help everyone or everything, without first helping yourself.

Vlad thanks for this post that hit me right on, I really needed this read.
Annd I wanted to share it with my readers.

Bookish Nightmares !!!!!

  My mom always told me that if I ever had a nightmare, I wasn’t to talk about them lest they come true. As a bratty kid, I must not have taken heed of her warnings and lo and behold I suffered for many years on behalf of my books while both asleep and wide... Continue Reading →

Why I read?

    A rather unnecessary question don’t you think Cinderzena? What are you thinking young lady? Have you not been reading all your life? (except for those wee years during which you didn’t even have control over your own bladder. Pft, duh!) Is it not clear to you that it is your life’s quest to... Continue Reading →

**Reblogged** Do you feel pressured to buy new books?/Do you buy second hand books?

Brand new, or second hand?
Pretty cover, or ugly?
A story from a hundred years ago, or one released just last week?
A male author, or female?
Hyped or not?

Does it really matter?
Does it really matter that we ‘buy’ all the books we read?
Is it incumbent on us to buy brand new ones to be labeled a real ‘reader’? Or is it one of societies new fads, to own flashy new copies of those hyped novels everyone is ‘supposed’ to be reading or else you are deemed a tasteless reader?
Should we feel pressurized, and make reading a chore? Or should we read as our circumstances allow us and be content at what we take away from what we read?

Lizzie seems to voice my thoughts on this topic extremely well! Kudos to you Lizzie. Any one up for a round of applause for her?

Reading is a very personal journey, it ultimately shapes who we are, and I know you will agree with me on this. One shouldn’t be judged on the books one reads, or on how it is come about.
Reading in itself is a task that requires a form of commitment and a journey in itself. So as readers we must support each other, and respect each others opinions.

Though the prospect of owning something pretty or something everyone else does makes us giddy with joy, at the same time should we feel it as something that is expected of us?

Brand new, second hand or borrowed, Hard copy or E-books, it really doesn’t matter as long as the book is read and the content adds something to your way of thinking and character.

Thanks once again Lizzie 🙂 Please do check out her blog for more such reads, book reviews and everything in between!
