I am addicted to love. I am addicted to love stories, it can be movies, books, medium articles of course, friends having the perfect love story, love songs, the list can go on. This addiction can seem not to dangerous, but it has get me in a lot of trouble. From daydreaming to much about meeting ‘the one’, to get into unhealthy relationships and to not being able to let go, you know, the basic. Of course, that also translates in my writing, it is all about love, about someone else, about moving on, about me recovering from a breakup, about finally letting things go. But ladies and gentleman, I am tired of it. So I decided to write about anything else but love. Ok, anything else but ‘romantic love’. This is my manifesto, others people manifesto if they find it useful, to focus on self-growth and discovery.

So, what to write about if it is not love? I had a hard time answering this question but I could come with ideas so here we go.

Write about your pets

Or write about how you are getting crazy during quarantine

Write about your job

You can even write about technology

And if nothing works, write about some topics people could write about. Write about everything in your own universe of experiences, and little by little discover that there is more than your romantic experiences that shaped you.

A human being trying to heal and found her own voice. A self-love journey.
