Sometimes, we should sit and listen to ourselves. Listening meaning communicate with ourselves and what we wanted.
I listened to a Thai Talk Show. But saying that it’s a talk show might be misinterpreted because it’s a talk show that is very honest and thought provoking. They talked about relationship stuff. People who went through a divorce as well as new found love. What they learned–sharing their experiences with the viewers. I honestly I can relate with one the celebrity who went through a divorce. Not that I’ve been in one. It was not her divorce story that I could relate, but I could relate with her problems. Because what she struggle to see I what I can see myself and actually do have it. The struggle that she had I also see it in me. Her story teach me that if I’m not careful or don’t do anything with these traits that I have, I will have to live the consequences. I can foresee my own doing to myself. It’s like I’m hurting myself. If I don’t do anything.
I know I’m selfish, demanding, and think of myself first. I had it when I was little. I have it now. Little or a lot I still have it. When I see myself as bigger and better than other people. They should do things for me. That they should do x, y, and z for me.
I was raised by love from my parents. It’s a love that always give to me. Without me having to earn or give as much because I was always receiving. I’m not saying love should be earn. But sometimes when I’m earning and earning. I also don’t learn or see the need to give because I was always in the receiving end of the spectrum and I will continue to live this life not knowing that it is not the life that I want for me. I was raised and also of my own doing, to receive and not give love or to care for others as much. I want to be a doctor also due to stability, it was my dream job, it seems prestigious, but I also know that being a doctor I must learn to give with love. I must learn to care for others even if they may not know who to care for themselves. I’m not perfect. But it takes a good, improve heart in the field. Am I up for the job, the Lord will show me.
I realized that I live day-to-day, keeping myself busy as a distraction for the problem that requires self-talk. How can I live life better. How to live and chasing something that’s worthwhile. I know chasing God is a way to go. Well, how to chase after God. Read your bible? Go to church? Have everything be up to the Lord?
Many many thing is God’s plan. I believe He plan out my life for me with whatever plan has had. I’m going through this period in life because perhaps it was time that I learn something he knew I lacked and is reminding me to the fruit he plan for me to be.
Pride and selfishness stems from the same source. No matter what this is I need to thrive to be better with God’s help.
I know if self-center and selfish, as well as not caring for others in the capacity I had wanted someone to be for me. I expect a lot but yield so little.
If I continue to live this life and be ok with it. I might not experience the kind of love, joy, and peace I want for myself, those around me, and my loved one. I don’t know if this is being hard on yourself or what. I may over think it. I don’t know, but the conclusion that I received today are lessons I’ve been neglected for quite some times now.
I will not be able to see the split or log in anyone’s eye when I have a trunk in my own.
This new year, there are things I wanted such as boots and a nice pair of jeans. May be a dress. I also knew that there are deeper things I need more in life. I honestly need to get in touch with myself more. Set aside time for myself and love ones to sit back and talk. To have a deep conversation with myself that I know I love. Sometimes, the deepest emotions to have is with myself.
Could our relationship have worked?
I would say probably. But why it didn’t work out? It was because I ignored myself. I didn’t listen to myself. I didn’t follow my own advice that I might be good at telling to others.
I wouldn’t change anything because I can’t change the past. What I can do is with the future. It’s sometimes an alternation between focusing on what’s in front of me and looking ahead. Just like when I run.
Sometimes, I wonder about God, but at the same times He is always with me even when I don’t think he is. Because I can feel it. His love for me. That makes me know that even when it seems hard,m. Even when I’m struggling. There will be good things that comes around for me to be thankful for in this life.
