Bitter Truth or Sugar Coated Lie?

Most of my teen days end up not saying anything if I can’t find something positive or significant thing to say. I find picking up battles with certain people, keeping my thoughts to myself. Maintaining relationships are much more satisfying than setting people off because though they asked for it, I know they didn’t really want to hear the truth.

In life, there’s something that called ‘TRUTH’ and it is associated with hurt, pain, bitter and discomfort. All of us have been bred to believe that we should not hurt anybody’s feelings hence most of us sugarcoat our opinions. O c’mon I know all of us do sugarcoating for some reasons whether we want to spare others’ feelings or maybe because we are afraid to be judged.

As I grow older I chose to hear the bitter truth than to hear the sugarcoated lie. I’d rather learn and grow from the TRUTH than to think everything’s gravy. Think about it: if you try to beat around the bush, the other may be misled, and the other will never be able to hold his/her peace. It is innate for the people to keep on seeking for the truth, in turn, give it back to others.

Truth is like a bitter pill to swallow. So as long as those pill were directed to the right illness it will cure the illness within. I am not saying that we have to be outspoken in every little thing we notice. What I am trying to say is that, we have to tell the truth by conveying it sincerely, carefully with full attention and consideration.

How about you, would you rather sugarcoat things up? Or you wanted to convey it straight?

I’d love to hear your thoughts!

 

We need People

Repost: “You have to accept that some people are not made for deep conversations, or for holding you together when you’re about to fall apart, or for keeping you from unzipping your skin, or for talking you out of suicide, or to love you through the worst moments of your life. Some people are made for shallow exchanges, and ridiculous banter, and nothing more. And that’s okay. That doesn’t make them horrible people because they simply aren’t able to handle a storm like you. It doesn’t make you a bad person because you won’t divulge all the gritty details of your horror show. It makes you smart. You have to accept that there will be people that cannot give you what you need. It doesn’t mean they are not worth keeping in your life. You just have to figure out who these ones are before you’re disappointed. And you have to keep them at arm’s length. You cannot expect everyone in your life to understand, to be nonjudgmental, to get it. But that’s okay, because not everyone was made to impart wisdom, or wax-poetic, or speak on politics and the depravity of society, or discuss how crucial it is that the stigma of mental illness be abolished. There are times when you have to get away from all that heaviness. You have to. And you will need superficial conversation about Kim Kardashian’s arse, or a debate on the color of The Dress. You will need those ones. So don’t go round cutting people off and dropping your friends. You need people for all your seasons. You need people or you won’t survive this.” —Anonymous, What my therapist told me this morning

One of the Most Courageous Things

Once, Azra T. says “Loving someone who cannot love you the same way in return is not weakness. It’s one of the most courageous things you’ll ever do. You are putting your armour at their feet and you are saying “I will not fight you in this. I have loved you and that means that I have already won. “.

Yes indeed, I’m not the biggest failure. You are and always will be. But know this. Wherever you are and whoever you’re with; I’ll still love you with the best of my abilities. Stay happy. Stay blessed.

Neglected Treasures

As a requirement in our subject Intrapersonal/Interpersonal Communication, we visited an orphanage. At first, I find it so interesting because I’ve never been visited one. I can’t really describe what the orphanage looks like, at least now I could get a real idea.

The smell, the sounds, and sight of the children just about made me lose myself when I first walked into the orphanage.

We were guided by Mrs.  Caces the executive director of the orphanage we visited. She guided us with the schedules of the kids and what are the tasks we can do. Fortunately, we arrived around 2pm –the time when the kids allowed to play or do whatever they want to. We played with them and the feeling was so amazing. after that, we able to fed them with a soup cooked by the staff. The kids was so amazing you can’t take your eyes with them.

Sandy, Mia, Lemuel, Marvin, Rachelle, Angel, Gemmalyn and Rosalinda. They are only 8 out of 25 children under the custody of Concordia Children’s Services, Inc. The kids were parent less and yet the story of their lives is not the story that they can be proud of—Sandy was found in the hotel, Lemuel was  surrendered by his mother to the PSSC (Philippines Social Science Council) for having no money to pay for the hospital bills. Mia has heart disease and Angel’s mom died of giving birth. Gemmalyn suffers in Global Developmental Delay a— late-bloomer( behavior is for 5 months but she’s  1 year old, and she can’t stand on her own )and the worst Rachelle found in trashcan  while the others has complications.

Kids paint happiness in one’s life.A baby and kids will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for, they are like the beginning of all things, hope, a dream of possibilities but still I wonder why there are some people have the urge to abandoned them.

I find it really hard to visualize, growing up parent less. I could say that it is every child’s worst nightmare to lose his/her parents. Imagine having to survive in this crazy world without having people to guide and support you. The mere presence of a parental figure gives a psychological and emotional security to a child. That is why it is but downright natural for me to sympathize with the little angels of an orphanage. It really made me appreciate how much God has blessed me.

It is indeed a great opportunity to be one of her students. I saw a different woman- a woman that gained vitality. She was impetus in discussing a lot of information about films, from the history, reforms to development. Together with her book tide with exemplary information, our class became more attentive and informed. She always has something to say about films in every single way. No wonder, she’s still being part of various indie films, investing herself to films and making an inscription deeper in history of Philippine Film.
