To be overwhelmed by love, happiness, knowledge, beauty and passion that seems to last forever and basking in the afterglows.
1. Holding your grandpa’s hand on his death bed will break your heart. You’ll realize that in a matter of hours you will never feel his touch again, or see his familiar face. He may just be the first person you know that dies. And it won’t be until years later that you come up with the perfect words to say good bye.
And then grandma. Who I missed her awesome cookings, her smell of rolled cigarettes. And didi. Who smiled so sweetly and look at me so lovingly when he was bidding me goodbye. Never knew it was his last smile and goodbye. I didnt have a chance to hug you. I wish we could have love more and spend more time together. But thank u because my broken heart learnt to love family more.
2. Your first boyfriend will break your heart. What you don’t know at the time is that the pain will follow you to all future relationships. It will shape your fears and insecurities for decades to come.
Im still skeptical but im braver than before so thank u for breaking my young heart. I learnt to love myself even more and never take myself for granted.
Never be the girl that has everything on the outside.
Even if it ‘hurts’ to be imperfect, be imperfect and continue to blossom into that perfectly imperfection.
Work on the content not the wrapper. Even if u are impeccably wrapped but when the recipient opens and finds an empty box then whats the point?
We are all presents. The wrapper is temporary anyways because we tend to rip them apart to see whats inside.
Remember that its the character that makes you attractive darling. If you have a rotten core, your value/appearance will just deteriorate. And it’s true that they say, external beauty catches your eye but character catches your heart.
Take time to know a person if he/she bloosoms in your eyes or just wilt away.
Waking up at 9am, make coffee, watch YouTube (more wongfu and more battles), start cleaning room, wash dirty laundries, hang laundries, fold dry clothes, watch a little tv, eat a tiny lunch, build figurines, tidy room, vacuum floor, fell asleep, showered, head out to buy groceries (spent one hour to plan what to breakfast to make tomorrow), make dinner, watch running man.
I hate mundane routine but as I aged sometimes I just wanna rest on sunday. And I have to be responsible for household chores which I used to kinda ignore when younger. It strangely makes me feel good. Taking evening walks in the neighbourhood enjoy the breeze and watch the sunset. OMGGG MY SOUL IS GROWING OLD!
Dare to explore a world That is bigger than you know. There are a lot of reasons to not to do something or feel something. Those boundaries and walls are put up by ourselves. Once we are able to step outside of them, we can truly realise the endless possibilities the world has to offer. (Credits to wongfu’s these four walls).
That just hit that raw button because thats exactly how I feels. The walls I put up around me has got to come down one day. Even if it means to get hurt, I have to explore and feel what the world wants me to feel. Deep down im hopeful I will find something thats worth the hurt.
Being single is difficult for many people. You reach a point in your life when you feel like you have no one but yourself. It can affect your emotional, physical, and mental health. But being alone does not have to be the equivalent of being lonely. As Oscar Wilde said: “I think it’s very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person”. There is an abundant number of reasons why it’s okay to be alone. Here are just seven reasons why:
You are alone, so there is no one but you. Now that may be terrifying at first, but it is also liberating. There is no one to tell you what to do. As they say, the ball is in your court; it is your move. You are in charge and you make your own decisions. No one else will do it for you, and you don’t have to worry about collateral damage.
2. Being alone is a journey of self-discovery
Since you are in charge, you have no one to tell you who you should be. This is your opportunity to discover who you are. Not only is the journey exciting, but you are closer to becoming the person you truly are. The closer you become, the more you realize that you aren’t a collection of other people or what they think of you. You are not who everyone wants you to be. You are who you want to be. Be the best you — no excuses, explanations, or apologies necessary.
3. You can realize your true potential
There is no one to tell you what to do, but there is also no one to tell you what you cannot do. Being alone allows you to focus on yourself and discover your true potential. The ceiling that at first seemed suffocating, is now made of glass and you are breaking through it. You realize that you can achieve more than you have ever imagined. Never be sorry for wanting more for yourself, and if you really do feel like you’re at rock bottom, just remember that you can only continue going up from here.
4. You’ll build your self-confidence
Once you realize what you can achieve, you are unstoppable. You can begin to push yourself to move forward. Even if you fail, you just have to continue pushing. Nothing and no one is holding you back. This is your own life and you must chase your own happiness. If you can do it alone, then you can do it always.
5. Remember who your true friends are
You slowly start to remember those who have always been there for you: those characters from books, movies, and television shows have never let you down. When you were happy or sad, they were always there. You have experienced every possible emotion with them. They do not judge you and they will never get tired of you. They will not grow up and leave you and you can always count on them. So watch your favorite shows, escape into your favorite books, and relive your favorite movies. And though you may feel like it, you are never truly alone.
6. You’ll learn how to fall in love with yourself
You will always be there for you. You are your best listener and confidante. You are your best friend and family. The more you spend time with yourself, they more you focus on yourself and realize how you have your back. As they say, “If you don’t love yourself, no one will”. After all, the best relationship you can have is with yourself.
7. You will survive
It is not the end of the world. You will find new friends. You will fall in love again. You will create your own family. But you will hurt again and people will continue to let you down, and that’s okay. You will become a stronger, well-rounded individual. You will discover who you are and what you can do. It will help you value the little things and realize you are important. Because you are not going to be alone forever, you are simply alone right now…and that’s okay.
