If we just embrace all of the real life problems that we have, the world might be a much easier place to live in, a much of a comfortable society to fit in, and maybe, a better life to live and love. We all want to be understood, to make the real connection with people, to matter to someone. Hiding has never been easy. For me, you or for every person out there in the world. Only if people would show their vulnerability and the good in their heart. Pretending to not feel anything or putting that strength in front of you shows the kind of person you want to be, not the kind of person that you truly are. What truly matters is how you cherish the real you and put it out there amongst everyone else. It is not weak to embrace the pain that you feel. One day, you will realize that you are not just a survivor, you are a warrior. If we can only talk about the things that we actually care about, empathizing would be easier. Comfort can come naturally. Knowing another person wouldn’t require much of a hard work. It’s not always about choosing the right thing or thinking the right thoughts. Maybe sometimes, the heart makes the most wisest decisions, and the mind just guides you through.
Change. Maybe change is essential. Maybe it is a requirement for us to grow, for us to make sense of the world, for us to let go of something and gain something else better. We can’t remain the same person all our lives. Through experiences, incidents or just as time passes, there is change in our thinking and how we see the world. Growth. Maturity. Life. Those three words keep coming back over and over again.
Change. People change. We, ourselves as an individual keep on changing as time passes. Maybe that is what makes us know ourselves better, that is how we can learn to love ourselves the most. Maybe you have to let go of who you were, to become who you will be. ‘ Once you lose yourself, you have two choices : Find the person you used to be, or lose that person completely.’
I’m lying here, in my bed
Too sleepy and tired
While my mind drifts off to those deep thoughts
I can hear the rain falling down
Like bullets from the sky
While my heart is singing melodies
Of which I am no longer able to lie.
We all live in a world of ourselves. Of one’s own self. Yes, there are a lot of people you are related or somehow connected to, your parents, siblings, friends and partners, but at the end of the day, it’s just you. When you lie down after a long tiring day, you are doing it for yourself. For the hope of a better tomorrow. Not for anyone else’s concern. It is not selfish to think about yourself. You are you, after all. This is your life. Your choices, your decisions, your mistakes. It’s okay to not trust anyone but yourself as well. It’s safer. To keep your thoughts, your emotions to your own. Sometimes, it’s okay to care about yourself the most. In a world where people are changing all the time, switching to and from different personalities, it’s okay to just believe in yourself and be the real you. Let people accept you as you are. All of us have our very own 2 am and 2 pm personalities. Let that be kept within ourselves. It is how you deal with the person you are, understanding your own mind and heart. Hearing your own voice better. Doing something that you have been longing to do, for yourself.
When I was a kid, I used to think that the world revolved around me. For real. It’s like I made myself be the victim of everyone else. I felt like it was always about me. Sooner or later, I had to realize that everyone had a world of their own, not only me. I realized the self absorbed kid that I was. It was a relief, cause I was just a small part in this huge amusing world.
It is selfish to think about yourself only, but it’s okay to be selfish sometimes. Putting one self’s need ahead of others, that’s common sense. Care and feel for others, that is what we always do. But treating yourself the same way, that is most important.
Finally I made a blog! After a lot of procrastination and laziness basically xD Well, so here it is, all of my thoughts and opinions put in one together from all of my notes and writings. Words combined on its own. Words that reveal our inner thoughts, which means more than just what is written on the paper. They have a life of their own and have the power to inspire or extinguish, just like the quote ‘Words in my humble opinion, are the most inexhaustible source of magic we have.’
So….Happy blogging to me :3
