Thankful Fridays: 29 Mar 2013

This week I am thankful that:

  • I got my ink touched up! So now it is better than perfect. Hehehe
  • Finally met Vagabond Ink’s mascot Tala. She is super duper adorable!
  • Discovered a quiet new mall which I can go to on crazy Saturday nights
  • Went for Korean BBQ with one of my favourite people
  • Didn’t see anyone I didn’t want to see
  • I met someone who seemed like she has gone through SO much crap, yet she is still bursting with positivity and faith. It really makes me want to try to be more positive too

Until next time. xx

  • We have been able to maintain a lead for 3 weeks on that particular(sorry I cannot disclose) ¬†front..I hope we can continue to achieve that.

I get really flustered when people ask me “how are you doing?”, “what’s up?” and anything along those lines..

Because I really can’t tell if they are asking for formality’s sake or if they are really interested. I don’t know how to reply.. if they were just asking to be courteous but I told them honestly how I’m doing in detail, it’ll probably bore them and make me seem self-indulgent. But if they were really interested yet I replied with the standard “I’m fine”, it would make me seem uninterested, right?

So here’s an open call to everyone. If you aren’t really interested to know how I’m doing in detail, please spare me and don’t even ask. Just a simple hello when we meet would suffice.

Spare me the formalities cos I really don’t like dealing with that. Say what you mean and mean what you say and we can be great. And if you are really interested to know, feel free to ask but please don’t be surprised when I tell you a long, detailed story of exactly how I’m doing.

Thank you~

As I grow older, I realize more and more that it really isn’t about how many friends you have, but rather how many of them you can actually count on. It’s better to have ONE friend who will go to the ends of the world for you and back than to have 100 “friends” who will find excuses to not be there for you, and sit back and watch you fall and laugh at you.

I’ve never been one to have many friends. I’ve been labelled unfriendly, anti-social and a loner. But I’ve always known that I don’t mind not having any friends at all instead of having tons of “friends” who will stab me in the back. And it’s been getting clearer to me now that I want friends who inspire me, who will encourage me and help me to grow as a person. Who will show me that I can be better, that I can climb higher, that I can always be more. I want friends who can accept me just the way I am and never try to change my quirks. I want friends who will be there for me when I need them the most.

I don’t need “friends” who hang out with me only if they stand to benefit in one way or another. I don’t need those who want to know things about me and are “concerned” for me because they want to use it as a joke. I don’t need people who will only drag me down and halt my personal growth just because they are fucked up themselves. They seek comfort in knowing that people aren’t doing better than them and also try to prevent you from being better. They take your failures and your misfortunes to justify their own and use it to bitch about you behind your back.

I’ve been a bystander watching this happen to someone else, and I’ve decided that it’s time to do some weeding. It’s been getting very clear who are for keeps and who are just poison. So if I stop talking to you, you know which one you are. Find someone else to poison.

This week I am thankful that

  • I met one of the most precious people ever
  • I found Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist in my sister’s study because I’ve wanted to read it for a long time
  • My tattoo is healing well
  • Leila was a really good girl today so my mom, sis and I were able to get out of the house for tea at Paul’s. I’ve been cooped up in this house for too long
  • I was able to lighten a heavy load that was weighing me down

Be the Change.
