bleak weather

sometimes i am just disillusioned by how human beings treat each other, that includes myself. the impatience of human beings, the lack of sympathy, the feeling of entitlement, the quick judgement. sometimes, i feel the world is too much for me, knowing about poverty, massacres, corruption, slander, gossip, strong anti sentiments, doomsday, first world problems.

some are foxes , some are hedgehogs.

greatest fulfillment comes from relationships. <3
it's not about what you don't have but what you have.
cherish the moments of spending time together without all distractions.
opening up and being vulnerable, sharing what unites us, a sense of nakedness, bareness, truthfulness, acceptance of how broken we are, bonding over a simple relatable experience, the same heartbeat, dancing to the same tune. i think i just described 'connection' between people - or at least that's what it feels like. natural flow, therapeutic, warmth, closeness.

ps: do not take people for granted. \

flash of light

lightning right behind the clouds. thinking this is God, almighty, majestic. your night sky is a piece of canvas. you hold the world in your hands.

hostility is a problem. its the cold, distant, aloof side that appears because it 'dislikes'... something. it's the part that has no love. it's the part that ignores and looks down and devalues. why? that is the question. why is it that you say you love but unlove in the blink of an eye?

quiet..or loud vessels making noise

Can i learn from others? not always Is it helpful for spiritual growth? no Do others feel encouraged by me? maybe.. Is it glorifying to God to share? maybe..if we are talking sense. Is it helping to bond with one another? no then why do i dislike it so much? relationship with God is inclusive.. it feels like scrutiny .. it feels ingenuine and forced.. it is as if our motivation is to seek attention.. it feels self-absorbed.. it feels like changing into someone i am not.. it feels like a 'obligation' to contribute.. it feels like we have to perform in front of others.. it is not relatable..\\ so much talking yet nothing goes in. \\ after losing hope, i am beginning to reject the notion of change ):

i believe in what i write

Pray. Father, i got my priorities all wrong. my faith in my abilities, my egocentric attitude, my selfish ways. Father, i don't know you, i hardly can claim to know you, for if i do, i wouldn't act the way i did. nothing about me speaks Christ. for Christ to come into my heart, i first have to declare all things wrong. to know what is right is only through you. take captive of all thoughts, to replace thoughts, to change thoughts. Who are they to judge a person by their unfriendliness? If they indeed should judge and critique, then you know how they are like. Father, i see myself as stubborn to act and put on a pretense for other's sake. If i have no part to play in something, why is there a need to be involved and talk to others. i always feel it should be something accepted, the right to be left alone, the right to excuse oneself. make an effort to 'care'. Father, why is it so hard to care? not only for others, but for others towards me as well. like a student cares about her teachers feelings, like a girl cares about her mothers feelings, like a friend caring for another friends feelings. why care? why would that even matter? True, it doesn't matter, not to me anyway. but to the one who died for all, i disgrace him. Father, i am expecting a lot from others when that shouldn't be the case. but when I pray, i don't tell you the stuff buried inside. I go to church to worship, yet I go with a filled mind full of troubles and worries, unwilling to let them go, unwilling to entrust you with them. Pray and feel better? Pray and don't feel better and blame God? what am i really doing here, pretending to be served by the King. as a prideful person, and God hates that. maybe the person who really portrays he loves God, is one who loves his people as well. the one who people would say.. look at her, she overflows with love. God overflows her heart with love and she is out there spreading it all around.

mimosa pudica

Sensitivity – sensitive yet firm and assertive in stating my hurt feelings without being ashamed for them, or turn inwardly to criticizing my hurt feelings and feeling shame and guilt for them, or turn outwardly to blame the world for not understanding the pain I am feeling within and justifying my feelings, or learn from emotional triggers and slowly retreating or tuning out the world, or learn the hard way of turning cold and not feeling anything at all, or laugh off the pain and treat it as a minor problem. Pain is gone when we shift our focus on something else. You see, our hearts are meant to feel and experience the world close-up. What is too much then? You learn from lessons, you learn being an adult, as if nothing scares you anymore, as if nothing can affect you the way it did before. You learn that people aren't always nice and thoughtful. You learn that you have to thread carefully and watch out for your surroundings. You learn that external influences can be hard to keep out of. You learn that it is not always the best way to cry and refuse to get up and brood about it and not move on with life. You learn that escaping is not always the best route. You learn that refusing to come into contact with anyone isn't the best idea. You learn that living is harder than staying dead. You learn that you are weak in front of anything that threatens your self-esteem, your self-worth, your self-interest. You start to look at armors, defensive gears, or maybe you invest in guns and weapons, it depends on your preference for killing. Maybe i would want a bomb that cause massive destruction, quick, fast, controlled timing and place, bodies flying and imploded, nothing is in complete pieces. Or maybe, i would want a device that causes slow painful death as i would want to watch you suffer. Or maybe, i want satisfaction for myself in taking aim and looking through the scope well aware that you are my prey and i am finally the hunter. Or maybe, i like to tease you a little with you scared and begging for my release as i come near you and hold the weapon to your head, just so i can feel in power and authority. Or maybe, i want to see you going insane from experiencing loneliness and solitude in a dark room, tied up and helpless with no one to call to, with no concept of time or space, or the world outside. And all of these tendencies, all of these need to inflict pain back, just because the heart is damaged. An eye for an eye, because the world has done this to me. Maybe that is the mentality, or maybe it is not. But why the hatred then? You refuse to be weak and back down, you want revenge but you dont know what for, it is probably your only outlet to vent some frustration. If anyone tells you otherwise, would you listen? Would love take you back from the hell's edge?
