@uneeadisti on Twitter. There's the "ASK" feature, use it. Wisely.
… are like overly religious people; it’s better if they stay as far as they can be from me.
I’m not going to try to vanish them from this world - because I’m pretty sure someone else is already on that - but because sometimes, they’re entertaining.
Why do I think that they’re alike?
Because it irritates them when you say,”Nah, I don’t see it like that”. They might not want to admit it, but - deep down inside - they’re irritated.
Then, they’re going to write down things that you disagree with them to use as something that they can go,”And this is why WE_THINK we’re better than you!”
For those who knows me for more than a month or two, they should know I’m not a big fan of religions - whatever kind. To stroke your religious ego, I’m just going to say that I’m too dumb to understand your epic concept of this … “thing”. There.
Now, the (overly) positive people, how are YOU doing?
What’s that? You think I’m a negative person and therefore you’re better than me? By all means, DO be better than me. I mean, *I* would like to be better than me, simply because I’m not easy to please. I always want more in my life. But here’s the thing, just because (I always want more in my life), doesn’t mean that I’m not being thankful for what I already have.
If I was able to reach a level 3 of something - a skill or something like that - and I want to reach level 6, that doesn’t mean I’m not being grateful that I reached level 3. That means, I KNOW I can do better than just level 3. And when I do get to level 6, trust me when I say this - I’m going to want to go level 9 or 10. Because, what kind of life would it be if you just go,”Oh, okay. That’s it. I’m not going to try to achieve something more, do something better. I’m too “small” to dream that big” …?
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to give that to my life. I don’t want to, one day, lying on my deathbed, thinking about thing I wanted and didn’t fight hard enough to get. Because, I know for sure that a “At least I tried …” feels a lot better than a “I should have done this/that …”.
Feeling bummed out every now and then after giving all you got to get where you want, isn’t being negative. That’s called BEING_HUMAN. What? Don’t tell me you’ve never wanted something so bad, it hurts more than you thought it was going to be when you didn’t get it? Some people might choose to hide the disappointment or to deny it but I don’t. How’s that a bad thing?
How is it a bad thing that I see things as they are: when I feel like life has screwed me over, that’s how I’m going to say it. I might be wrong, I might change my opinion after I spend time looking for the silver lining and shit, but seconds after it happens and when I’m feeling like shit, why should I say that I’m feeling alright? Just to please you? Oh, please. I don’t sugarcoat things, that’s million miles away from being negative. They’re not even in the same neighborhood, it’s ridiculous.
So, don’t hate me and throw your judgmental rocks at me because I have higher standards than you. Don’t say that I’m not being grateful for having a husband who loves me and the chance to live abroad because I still have dreams (lots of them) and passion for things. That’s not fair. And it’s also funny because, even my husband wants me to pursue my dreams, be whatever I want to be, he’s with me all the way, but yet — here you are, making me feel bad for wanting more for my life.
No, no. I do get that you’re trying to tell me to see my “glass” as half full instead of half empty, or other fancy positive sayings that you have written on your walls (probably with your blood or something), but - sweetheart, life isn’t a glass. Life isn’t a pitcher or coke. Life is A LOT bigger than that.
tell it to go fuck itself because you_don’t_need_lemon.
Lemon. Isn’t. The. Answer. To. Everything.
Sometimes you just want it - life, I mean - to go/be lemonfuckingless.
And, no — don’t give me that,”Oh, but look at the bright side” hum.
No. I don’t want to look at the bright side. I’ve been looking at it for quite a while, I think I’m partially blind now.
So, again, NO.
“Maybe you’re not trying enough.”
How about I throw all of my efforts to your face so you can feel how hard they are.
There will always be that moment in your life where you wish the world comes with a remote that has the mute button on it and only that. It’s now for me.
So, please, don’t bother.
Well, approximately 90 days, I’ve been here. Everything just fells to be moving so darn fast but yet so slow — don’t ask me what that means because I don’t think I’ll be able to actually explain. Building your life all over again is kind of difficult. Apparently. But, I do feel like I’m feeling a little, a tiny bit, more confident about pursuing my dreams, the things I’ve always wanted to do/try without worrying about other people might think or be bothered by the stare, weird look and sneering comments. It’s quite exiting but at the same time … scary. But I know myself too well to say that it won’t stop me. It might make me put everything in ‘pause’ but never to stop. I’m lucky enough to be married to this amazing man who is never tired to support me and wonderful friends who are always willing to help. That should be enough to be my fuel.
WISH ME LUCK!
Starting (something) is always the most difficult part.
