It’s okay to be sad, it’s okay to cry. We need to stop believing in those posts we see online that we always have to happy and positive, that’s toxic positivity. Life has ups and downs, and it’s normal to be vulnerable at times. You can’t be positive all the time because that takes hard work and a lot of Xanax 😆.
If you’re reading this, then this is your reminder that it is okay if you’re crying in your room right now and feeling like the world is on your shoulders, just let it all out. But you also have to get back up and remember that life is like a tire, it rolls. Just keep trying because life is also a trial and error, we all need to repeatedly just stop, gather strength and pull ourselves back up every time life throws us down.
We all have that scar that bled and hurt us in the past. Well I do.
There is that one particular event in my life that really hurt me and it changed me forever. That event and that scar of mine is permanent, it’s a part of my life and I will carry it forever. Yes, it hurts from time to time like it’s a fresh wound but then I realized that this scar means something and for me it is an everyday reminder and motivation to move past that misery and to be better. Others stop and cry when they get hurt, they dwell on their sadness that eventually break them. Pain demands to be felt and it’s what makes you feel alive. It’s okay to take a minute to process and be sad for awhile but sooner or later you have to move on or else that sadness will eat you.
“Shit happens!”“Everything happens for a reason.”
Remember when you were a kid, when you fell, tripped or scratched your knees you cried right? Because you got hurt but eventually the pain faded away and it did not stopped you on playing and running again. Why is it so simple when we were younger? Anyways, that’s what I’ve realized this day because I was going on one of my moods again, the cloud of sadness is unfortunately revisiting.
Don’t let those wounds and scars stop you, don’t sit and cry forever because of a damn wound or scratch that is now a scar. Make that permanent scar as an everyday motivation and make a positive out of negative. Cheers!
I was supposed to write about this the other day but due to loads of school works and also household chores I wasn’t able to write it.
Okay so last Monday February 29, 2016 heard a somewhat sad but also inspirational story. This guy entered our room after our Philippine Literature subject I thought he was just going to conduct a survey for their thesis but then he started his speech with the words that he is lowering his pride for what he was about to do, he then started talking about his sister who is sick. At first I thought it was all an act, I thought he’s just performing a monologue or whatever because our subject is Literature and all we do there is to perform or act but as he goes on talking about his sister with full conviction that’s when I realized that everything that I’m hearing from him are true and my heart just melted.
The guy is also a student in the university that I’m going to so as his sick sister but she stopped going to school due to stage 4 cancer (I forgot the type of cancer she has) even though she was still so eager to go to school even with her situation. She went through many operations and now she only has one leg due to a tumor that just suddenly appears on her leg and now she’s still fighting a tough battle and her brother is asking for help to fund her treatment which cost around 2 Million pesos (44K dollars), I think you’ll get more sick when you see the cost of the treatment. Anyways, I thought soliciting funds for personal use is not allowed in the university but with this case I don’t care about the rules I want my schoolmate to get better, the guy also presented a video of her sister showing us a glimpse of her situation and thanking everyone who’s willing to help her. I think all of us in that room did not hesitate to give what they can. I really admire what her brother is doing I just witnessed true love with what he did.
After that heart melting speech that I think lasted for about less than 10 minutes from that guy, that story was all in my head that time even when I went home, actually until now I’m still thinking about her. I actually added her on Facebook that day and also sent her a message of encouragement to keep fighting. Seeing her on Facebook with that big smile on her face and also her optimism about her situation makes me think that what the heck am I worrying about my life right now? My situation is a thousand much more better than hers. I’m complaining about shallow things and also about school when this girl wanted to badly go to school but she can’t. Her story made me realized how fortunate I am that I am alive, healthy and I get to do things that other people wished that they had the chance to do.
We are taking our life for granted and complain a lot about simple stuff. We tend to compare our lives with other people. We never get satisfied of what we have. Well in fact we are much more fortunate than other people. If you have a house to go home to and keep you safe and warm YOU ARE FORTUNATE. If you have a complete family YOU ARE FORTUNATE. If you can go to school, if you have clothes to wear, if you have enough money to buy food, if you get to eat three meals a day, and if you get to wake up everyday alive and healthy YOU ARE FORTUNATE.
P.S. I hope this girl survive and I get to see her in her school uniform soon. God is good I know he give tough challenges to the strong ones.
P.P.S. Her name is Angeline please include her in your prayers.
