Try and Stop Me

9:41:00 PM

I underwent a life-changing experience 3 years ago that opened up the door to another life-changing moment which led to a switch of career and the creation of aere and recently went through the same thing again last year. So I decided to express my feelings on this through this collection. Sometimes we go through certain things in life that people can’t really fathom or understand as they don’t go through the same thing. I think everyone feels this at a certain point in their life especially when it’s a time of facing difficulties / hardships. 

I know and have heard of some people who went through the same things I did and decided to stop living. Stop working. Stop socialising altogether. Stop everything. 

When I heard it, it scared me and I wish that I was there to meet them and talk to them. Even though I wouldn't have any idea what to say to them. I myself have felt it a few times at some point. Like it's too much. It gets physically exhausting when you try to fight it. I feel weak when all people ask you to do is be strong. It's as though, you are not allowed to feel weak at all. It's as though you're supposed to be strong all the time and not be human. We have tried our best to be strong. All strength comes from God but we will have our weak moments.

Well, as much as we have our weak moments. Life has to move on. We will fall sometimes but it's okay, as long as we fight hard to stand back up again. At least thats what I think.

Sometimes, the response of other people who does not go through the same thing makes you feel that you shouldn’t have any feelings at all, just move on and "be strong". But it is okay to feel. It is not wrong to feel. We are all human anyways and feelings are created for a purpose. 

I’ve shared some of the experiences that I went though 3 years ago and recently when I feel like it  here in my blog and other social media channels including Instagram.

And now I have found another avenue to express my feelings. Through aere and specially aere's FEEL eid collection, I hope that I can express that it should be okay to feel.  

For me personally, Raya is definitely an occasion of celebration and happiness, but it is also a time of reflection, a time of bittersweet nostalgia for those of us who are unable to celebrate this joyous festival with their loved ones. Raya is also a time of connection – rekindling relationships. Getting in touch with our innermost feelings – that was the inspiration for this collection basically.

It is these feelings that drive me. It is these feelings that make me. So try and stop me.

Feeling "Shiver" by Coldplay, one of my favourite songs with Khubayb.

And on and on from the moment I wake,
To the moment I sleep,
I'll be there by your side,
Just you try and stop me,
I'll be waiting in line,
Just to see if you care.

Did you want me to change?
Well I changed for good
And I want you to know.
That you'll always get your way
I wanted to say,

Don't you Shiver?
Sing it loud and clear

I'll always be waiting for you,
So you know how much I need you,
But you never even see me, do you?
And is this my final chance of getting you?
