Sometimes Asking The Right Question is the Answer

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?

When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?

If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?

Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity?

How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy?

Why are you, you?

Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend?

Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?

Is it possible to know the truth without challenging it first?

If not now, then when?

If you haven’t achieved it yet, what do you have to lose?

Why do religions that support love cause so many wars?

When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in?

What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?

Decisions are being made right now.  The question is:  Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you?

When Someone Tries To Hurt You Emotionally

You’re not worthy, your life is a mess, you can never pull through, nobody loves you, you’re dumb, you’re useless, etc.

For others, it’s their way of showing their anger towards you and they don’t see the weight of the words that they said. They may even think that you really deserve to hear those words. 

Some people won’t acknowledge your emotional wounds. Why? Because they are not visible. They are not aware as to how severe the wound is and how excruciating the pain is. Some people are so good at hurting someone else’s feelings and they don’t feel guilty at all because they never know how emotional pain hurts and they never know how worse it is than a physical pain.

Some people are so good at hurting you emotionally and would tell everyone that you are just being sensitive. 

It’s all because they can never see the wound that they have inflicted. I guess they’ll never understand the pain that they caused. 

Truth is, physical pain is easier to mend than an emotional pain because it’s visible and you know how severe it is. While emotional pain can always be hidden and can always go unnoticed. 

This is not a perfect world and I am not perfect either. That is why I learned that you always have to choose your words because you’ll never know how much pain it could cause. It may not impact you, you may feel vindicated because you have accomplished hurting someone with the words that you have said. 

Even if the words are true, the person may never look at you the same way again. You may be living a good life but you will never be loved and respected the same way ever again. 

Selfish Heart

You said you’re in love,

But you are in doubt.

Because you are confused,

Because you can’t choose.

 

So she left without a word,

Because she can no longer see her worth.

She has set you free,

So that she can also live free.

 

But you just can’t let her be,

Because you don’t want to give her heart to somebody.

Even though staying keeps her hurting constanly,

In other’s arms you don’t want to see her happy.

 

But, true love is never selfish.

Love is always selfless.

So it seems like it wasn’t selfish love at all,

It was your heart that’s selfish afterall.

Never Settle For Less Because God Gives The Best

God's Hand

When God gives you a No.png

I had a deep conversation with God in prayer this week. I admit, I came to a point when I doubt His power and lost my faith. I barely prayed and asked for His help because I thought I can do it on my own. I thought, He doesn’t hear me or answer my prayers anyway so why should I bother? I thought I can do it all on my own but I was wrong.

As they say, there is a hole in our heart that only God can fill. For when I was lost, even when my friends are there and there are a lot of people around me, I felt incomplete. As if, I am not living with a purpose. When I turned my back on Him, I thought I’ll be free. I can do the things I want to do without the people mandating me or feeling guilty because I am not serving Him.

However, this feeling didn’t last long. I felt weak and lost and my life seems like it’s going nowhere. What’s beautiful about God is that no matter how many times we turn our back on Him, His arms are always wide open. His love and mercy is so marvelous that I couldn’t fathom.

God answers prayer, maybe not in a way that we want Him to, but He always gives the best. Sometimes, we ask Him why and we even blame Him for not giving us what we desire but God has proven me many times that He always wants the best for me. And when it’s BEST, it is not mediocre or second best. He never wants us to settle for less even though there are countless times that we keep on praying and insisting on Him the things that we want for ourselves. Our God is so big but we always think small. Our God so big but we always want to settle for less.

Are you going through something now that makes you doubt God’s power? Are you on the verge of giving up? The best thing to do when you’re in doubt is to pray.. and keep on praying even when you think no one hears you, even when it seems like no one is around. There is God… When things seems wrong and you have nowhere to turn I have proven so many times that there is an invisible hand protecting me, providing me the things that I need. God is like the wind, we can’t see Him but we can always feel His presence.

 

Keep Going

keep going

I wish I could go to the previous,

When everything’s oblivious,

And the world isn’t vicious.

When you can always be frivolous.

 

I wish life has it easy,

Even though sometimes it gets messy.

In a world full of melancholy,

You still have to be jolly.

 

Cause when it rains, it pours.

And you just have to sashay and sway.

Because every raindrops can hide the teardrops.

And it clears the sleaze of things that have elapsed.

 

In life, you always have to be strong,

Even when everything’s going wrong.

Because life goes on.

And you always have to move on.

 

Cheer up little one,

You’re not the only one.

Everyone’s struggling and they just keep on fighting.

Keep on believing, keep striving and loving.

Cause you’re not designed for failing.

 

Love Isn’t Enough For You To Stay

Sometimes you just can’t take it anymore,

And all you want to do is turn away.

Sometimes, people will ask you to stay, 

Even when they’re the one who pushed you to go away.

One day, you just wake up,

And realize you’ve had enough,

Cause love isn’t always enough,

For you to overlook the gaffe.

Cause everything’s changing,
And the world keeps on turning.

And it’s sad to realize that things change in just a glimpse,

And people change without a hitch.

 Sometimes love fades, but the memories will stay.

And sometimes, people have to part their ways,

And even though their love still stays,

The pain will always be there if you won’t go away,

Cause sometimes, love isn’t enough for you to stay.
