A Little About Me


So I would now like to take the time to get those who have already started following my blog a bit more familiar with who I am. 

My name is Tiahara (pronounced tee-HAIR-ruh), but I also like to go by Tia for short. People primarily describe me as shy and quiet. I have a tendency to just stay to myself majority of the time, so I don’t have many friends. Constantly keepinimg_07041g these walls up, I often find it very difficult to really open up to others and let them in. Not particularly because I’m afraid of getting hurt, because I know that hurt is inevitable and part of everyone’s life at one point or another. But I do admit that I can sometimes feel a little isolated when it comes who I am and my life, I guess you could say. I’m not your typical teenager. There are certain things I have yet to experience, and to me, it feels as though everyone else around me is so much more interesting.

However, at the end of the day, I know that I do matter and that I’m here for a reason. I want 2016 to be the year I start putting myself out there more. I want to hold back less. I want to stop pushing those who I want to be the closest to away. Overcoming my shyness isn’t going to happen overnight or anytime soon. It’s going to be a process, a journey. And I would like to begin that here, with this blog.

The name, simplyexpressingme, is very much self-explanatory. Here I’ll be writing about personal things that will vary, from something I’m experiencing or going through in life, to just simply what I may have on my mind at a certain point in time. I’ll be posting little extra things in between as well. Also, I would like to just note now: Everything I put on here is 100 percent honest and me. You could say this blog is, in a way, like my diary, that’s voluntarily out in the open for everyone to read.

BIG thank you to y’all who are staying tuned. I welcome you, and look forward to sharing myself with you all.

Keep Your Head Up

This is a very candid and personal poem I wrote recently out of the blue. It’s just a reflection of how I’m feeling in my life right now. As I was near the end of writing it, I liked it so much that I wanted it to be my very first blog post. To those who are here, taking the time to read this, thank you so much. I hope you enjoy, and feel free to leave a comment!

Sometimes I find myself wondering why I am here,

On this Earth.

At a standstill, just wishing for things to be better,

While also realizing, it could always be much worse.

Days I want to and do walk around unhappy,

With everyone and everything in my path.

As if it is the most ideal solution I can grasp;

Temporarily blinded of reasons why I should feel lucky.

I attempt to mold my soul,

To be empty, like a desert.

Dark, like a deep hole.

Acting as if I’m too invincible to feel hurt.

But I am a human being,

Who, in reality, has a very soft heart;

That at times can do a little too much caring.

No matter how hard I try, it refuses to stop.

God has His own plans for everyone,

Things happen when they do for a reason.

When life starts getting heavy and tough,

I just gotta tell myself, Keep your head up.
