Segregation. It means to set someone or something apart from others. And this week I learned how we as human beings segregate our emotions.

3 weeks into my gynaecology and obstetrics rotation. I am exhausted, firstly. I am learning, secondly. Exhausted because to be very honest, med school is tiring.

Barely scarred or hurt, she was living perfectly. As perfect as she was taught to believe; but this caterpillar grew her wings. She was learning to fly like a butterfly she thought she was.

We take our first breath whilst crying, but our cry brings joy to our mother and the people who observe us taking our first breath. Overwhelming.
