3 Lessons Learned in Mourning Time

Nothing would ever come from something easy, Be Strong! At least, that is something that people would say when we are struggling with our problems. They say that just to console us and make us stronger. That’s a good thing to do, but there’s no changing in us even after we heard that for quite several times. You are still grieving because of your problems.

Please Forgive Me

I wrote this song for my mother, the only one who will never disappoint me.

Suddenly, I want someone to embrace me,
My body is so tired but this heavy heart makes me can’t sleep at night,
Suddenly, I’m thinking of home,
because I’m like a stray bird who flew away from your house.

Do I have any Best Friends ?

“When your best friend loves you, the way they talk about you will be different. You will feel safe and comfortable when you are with him.”

Everyone knows that we, human, are a social being. We need someone to accompany us all our life. There are always some people whom you consider as friends. Moreover from all friends that you have already had, there are several people whom you consider as best friends. You are lucky if you have several best friends, some of us might only have one or two best friends. You can’t regard someone as your best friends that easy. It needs proofs and approval from the other person whom you considered best friends.

Mental & Emotional Corner: Feeling Unneeded and Lost

“You sometimes think you want to disappear, but all you really want is to be found.”

Do you ever feel not needed by your peers? When they are planning a trip to somewhere awesome they just don’t realize that you are there. They never bother to call you. If you are an extroverted person, then maybe you could approach them like it’s nothing, but when you are an introverted person, you will feel separated from them psychologically; like they exclude you from their inner circle indirectly. Like when they are all taking pictures but you are not invited, so you are pretending to be busy all the time. Like when you, yourself, don’t know which circle you are actually belong to and no one give a damn about that. I know how you feel, it hurts.

The Ultimate Goal: How to Live Like Him (Pt. 2)

In my previous post, I shared how we could try to live like Him, but do you know that everything in life has process? When we try to live like him, we will go through processes, for example, if you want to build a table from a log, you have to cut the log, shape it, nail it, and chisel it to make it like a table. Do you realize that we are like that log, He wanted us to be a beautiful table, so He put us through the processes like being nailed, saw, and chiseled. Is it an enjoyable process? Is it a short process? No, it’s long and painful processes, but at the end of the story, the table will be beautiful. It’s not impossible that we could live like Him.

In this life, we are always thought that we have to do good in every aspects of our life, but as we grow up, there are many toxic factors that will make sure that we would never achieve goodness in everything. It’s all coming back to us, whether we really want to have fun without considering anything or we tailor every aspects of our life to be a life suit that could save us one day.

Mental & Emotional Corner: The Story About The Boy in Grey Beanie

Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord – Acts 3:19 (New International Version)

Last Sunday, I went to church as usual but today was different. I was really blessed to meet a person who inspired me really much but the funny thing was, it’s not the pastor but the member of the church, a boy who looked like in his high school or college years. At first, because he was seated in front of me, I saw the boy only from his back and I said to myself, “He is stylish.” Because my fashion style was somewhat similar to him, street style with long denim shirt, jeans, slip ons, and a grey beanie. I was like thinking to myself why did he have to wear beanie inside a church, it’s not that cold or winter season, I couldn’t fathom why but I just let it slid away.

The Touching Message Behind Kelly Clarkson’s Piece by Piece Lyrics

Clarkson concluded that she’s “not angry” with her father anymore. “I’m 33 years old, I’m a grown woman. But it’s more of that thing where you can try your hardest to salvage relationships — and I did — but at the end of the day, if you keep getting hurt by someone because they just don’t know how to properly love people, it’s just not worth it,” she concluded. “It’s not worth the strain in your heart and it starts to bleed into your other relationships and it becomes super dysfunctional.”

I just found out a beautiful and inspirational song which is Kelly Clarkson ‘Piece by Piece’ (Idol Version). Actually, the song was in her last album but it has more upbeat feel to it before. This Idol version came after her performance in American Idol last season finale. The performance moved the judges and audiences, even i almost cried. When a song conveyed to audience with sincerest heart, even the most arrogant person could break into tears. This is the performance i was talking about:

Mental & Emotional Corner: 3 Major Things You Need to Get Over Somebody

“I stopped waiting for your call, your text: a message, a breath. I let myself start wishing we’d never met” – Niocra Kladsflem

If you love someone, it doesn’t always mean you have to make them yours, it sounds very cliché. Many people is now believing that when we love someone, we have to chase them so hard until they get them as a boyfriend/girlfriend. If they are rejected, they will find another to be hunted and try to make them as their honey. For me, this looks like a hunting season which I found very inconvenient, disturbing, and pathetic.
