I, as the Editor of Pensive Stories, bear the responsibility to explain what actually “Pensive” means by and why we have named our platform “Pensive Stories”.
According to dictionary, Pensive is an adjective. It can be defined like this, thinking deeply about something which makes you sad/worried/careless/thoughtless/non-meditative or demotivated.
An example is, how one feels after hearing one after one death news in this Coronavirus Pandemic or how one person stumbles upon a dark incident of his/her childhood while reminiscing the wonderful memories and hurt him/herself very deeply.
Our platform is the place where will share our unspoken sorrows, dark memories, negative feelings, anger, sadness, and reassuring feelings as well to give our mental health a little bit peace.
It can be through stories, poems, statements, short stories, audio messages or video messages with author’s identity or by being anonymous.
Remember, this platform is to express and embrace our feelings and not to solve or judge the matter. But by doing this, we will be able to walk the path with empathy.
