Be thankful? Really?

Sometimes, when I rant... when I complain... when I feel burdened by overwhelming problems... some well-meaning friends would come to me... try to console me and say... “You should be thankful. Others have it worse.”

I know they mean well... but really?

Be thankful?

I feel sorry for them that they may be burdened too... and yes, maybe they have it worse. But be thankful that I am not where they are? Be thankful that they have it worse?

I don’t think so.

Let Him Fly

Let Him Fly
by Royverine

Don’t hold his wings
Let him fly
For wings are made
So birds can fly
Don’t let him fear the wind
Teach him how to glide
Trust you’ve shown enough
Trust you taught him enough
It’s how it should go
You can’t hold him forever
Let go
Let him fly

The world is full of proud people

The world is full of proud people. People who think that they are the only one who are doing the right thing... people who believe that the world owe them reverence... people who act like that they are always right and are the one whose voice should be heard.

Righteous, selfish, and self-centered people.

They are all around us... THEY ARE ALL AROUND ME!

What's even worse is when you are caught between two self-righteous individuals. You just want to get out and let them make a mess of themselves.

I've got troubles of my own. Spare me your differences.

I tried my best and I keep on trying my best, still I fail.

More than four years of doing dual role and it seems I haven’t learned a thing. I feel my children drifting are away farther from me… I feel problems piling up like Mt. Everest… and worst, I feel like I haven’t done a single positive thing.

I don't see myself as a good role model that they can emulate!


Damn it! You people can say anything that you want to say. I don’t give a shit!

All you positive people, I applause you. You all make this world a better place to live in. BRAVO!!! BRAVO!!! I SALUTE YOU!!!

Now, if you’ll excuse me. Will you please cover your ears and turn around? Better yet, get your ass out of here. Scram! There’s nothing in here for you! Beat it!

Okay, where was I? Oh yes, I was talking about the loser that I am.
Somehow, nothing makes sense. The dots just won’t connect. Running to and fro, yet getting nowhere. This is pathetic!

I’m not making sense, am I? I’m not supposed to. I’m ranting here!

This is useless!

And honestly, it’s not making me feel any better.

Shit happens!

And just because it does, it doesn't mean we have to act like one.

Yes, shit happens, but we all know that life goes on. It does not end with just one shit, unless we all want to get stuck in that shit.

Nothing is too easy, nothing is too good. If it's too good to be to be true, probably it is.

Life, as we know it, is full of ups and downs. I guess by now we are all aware of that. We are allowed to rest, sulk, cry, and whine if need be. If it will make us feel better. But that should not go on forever.

Just as good things never last, bad things never last either.

So, hold your laurels. Don't give up just yet.

Shit happens, but you don't have to be.

Life goes on.
