About anonymouslybewitching

Me? I simply am. Like the world around me, like the universe, I am ever changing, ever flowing. I am limitless. I am infinite, indefinite. I am immeasurable and boundless because I am a part of the Universal soul, the divine. And so no word is enough to contain my existence. But let me give you a description of where I come from. I am 22 years old, a person trying to anonymously tell the world of her deeper thoughts and emotions which may never be understood in the world she's living in. I am a pagan living in the sole Christian country in Asia.  I am a pagan who strives to thrive in the medical field where people are convinced science is the only answer. I am a pagan living in a society where people are primitive, conservative, narrow minded and selfish. And this blog is a means of an outlet to my ideas which some may think silly, laughable or weird. However people may perceive me, i care less for what matters is I know myself. And Im looking forward to meet at least open minded people. You can email me at syhrmme@gmail.com :-)
