Hello, I am Debdutta.
I’ve been writing full-time since 2019, primarily on Medium.
My journey started with a simple desire to share my story. For 27 years, I lived someone else’s life. I was a subset of myself, one that everyone wanted to me, and also I thought I needed to be.
What came next after a series of existential crises was a process of discovering who I really am, accepting myself for all that I am, and working to improve myself and my life while learning to really love myself.
I write about all of the above with complete honesty and transparency. I share my hard-earned learnings realizations. I also describe my failures in detail; no holds barred. I refuse to fit myself in a box now that I am finally free and am constantly experimenting, trying, and creating. Variety is fun.
Always a work in progress, I’m in the process of reclaiming what is truly mine, one story at a time. I embrace being weird, and believe that life is too short, to not be yourself. I also don’t take things too seriously, so expect a juxtaposition of my complex mental health issues with some absurd, dry humor. Too much contrast? This is just the beginning of my dualities.
Your support will help me continue pursuing my passion full-time, which is writing. I look forward to connecting with you. Cheers!
