Ok Teasips, it is important that you remember this.

There are times where you can't listen to yourself.
There are times where your mind is lying to you.
Remember how your mind had betrayed you over and again?
The battle isn't over.
Your mind is still actively working against you.

The mornings are the hardest aren't they?
Your heart is pumping.
Your soul feels frozen.

"You can't do this. You have to stay in bed."
"People hate you."
"You are not well. You are not like other normal people."

But get up anyway.
By mid day, you will be certain that you've made the right choice.
By night, you'd feel proud that you've completed the day. As you lay your head to sleep, you'd inevitably feel guilt-free.

And in the morning, when it comes,
just repeat.

I had the most shocking news.
I found out that an ex-classmate was admitted to the psych ward for instability due to drug abuse.
I'm not sure how badly his mental state was affected.
I immediately recalled the time in year 1999 where we went in a group of 6 to an inter-school camp organised by a local university.
It was the most memorable academic activity in my log.

I wonder, what happened?
What had pushed him to such desperation?

Funny, that my last memory of him, was something so innocently joyous.
We were at that stage of life where we had believed anything was possible.
Funny, we only thought of the possible good.
Never the bad.
