Whenever I hear conflicting opinions, deal with heated situations, or experience negative interactions, writing provides a perfect forum to dive deeper into the experiences and make something of them to learn a lesson and share the lesson with others.




The Shortform is dedicated to the quick read. If you are looking for some tiny nuggets of knowledge or some easy entertainment, you came to the right place. Specially designed for consuming content when you are short on time or energy.
