How about this?

It's not always rainbows and butterflies, it's compromise that moves us along... as per the lyrics of the song She Will Be Loved by Maroon 5. It's true, though. It's really not rainbows and butterflies; it's not always happy and perfect. There will be really times it's going to be awful, it's going to irritate you, and probably think to just quit and call it all off. By that time, you have to re-think. You're just human; maybe quitting can be your resort to end stuff but then think further.

Dude, she told you she's hard to be with, right? So, you have taken her in and you know the turf. She's managing your expectations of her. I know, I know, you think highly of her at times, but don't ever forget that she's human too. She can be upset, she can be irritating, she can be mad, she can be anything worst she can ever be. She's entitled to some emotions as much as you.

Maybe you said things you didn't mean, or things you mean but want…


Sabado sa UP. Tapos na yung ulan. Pumunta kami sa Vargas Museum. Tahimik dun katulad ng dati. Mas may feels siguro kasi kakatapos lang umulan tapos hapon na rin. Parang bang iba yung pakiramdam. Masayang katahimikan kumbaga. Hindi ko ma-explain eh. Basta. 
Madalas ako sa UP dahil sa mga requirements sa Masters at mga ganap na dinadaluhan. Paboritong lugar kung saan pwedeng pulutin ang sarili. Kung saan pwedeng hanapin ang sarili kahit na alam ko naman na wala ang sarili ko dun. Iba lang.
Madalas ako sa UP lalo na pag wasak ako. Wala naman gamot dun para pampawala ng sakit ng nararamdaman pero pag uwi ko galing dun parang okay naman na ako. Hindi na masyadong masakit. Konti nalang. Parang may magic. Parang yakap ng lola ko. 
Sabi ko dati ayoko na pumunta lang sa UP at magmuni-muni kapag wasak ako, gusto ko yung masaya ako o yung hindi ako nag-aalala. Paulit-ulit kong sinasabi yun sa sarili ko dati. Sabi ko ayaw ko na ma-hurt bes! Gusto ko pupunta ako dito maligaya ako. 
Kung hindi ako p…

To the man who loves me

Dear You,

I know you've had your rough times with me at an early time and I tell you, there will be more of that in the days to come.

I'd like to let you know that it's hard to be with me. I function on my own, and for the longest time, I have lived my life on my own, for my own. But that doesn't mean I don't have the ability to love someone. I have so much love to give. So much love that has been put to reserve in such long due to: lack of faith, hurt, hate, and so on. I have come to realize that I should hope and believe again; and here we are.

I'm the person who always has an answer to everything; or if not an answer, an opinion, perhaps? I see things as they are and sometimes I tend to see deeper; I tend to see more. Both can be an advantage and a disadvantage at the same time.

This is me giving you heads up of what you've signed up for. I'm not easy and never I will be. But for you I can flex, compromise, and understand more than I could right now.…

The Power of the Other by Dr. Henry Cloud (Part 1)

I've read a lot of books in my life; and I'm reading quite a ton in the last 2 years, which by the way, good to be shared here. Every book I read is different and creates a big impact to me as an individual in all given characters - a daughter/grand daughter, a partner, a friend, a career woman, to name a few.

Words make huge sense to me as always and sometimes books can verbalize and interpret my emotions for me - especially the ones I'm having problems about. In this book, The Power of the Other by Dr. Henry Cloud, it showcased my pertinent emotions; especially the ones I don't acknowledge or even recognize. The book helped me and support me to re-shape my mind and my whole being eventually realizing good forms and notes to take in.

I might have to do this in two (2) parts as I want to concentrate on the sections that really mattered to me whilst I was reading.

It says...

Your well-being depends on your brain, your relationship and your mind.  With that being said, w…
