The Passionate Blogger

My mind longs to convey the messages my heart cannot contain. Void of eloquence, my lips are sealed to even whisper what my pen can easily glide to express the deepest feelings I keep deep inside me. I have this ardent desire to culminate what both my mind and heart cannot hold in overflowing. Hence, let me be the blogger that I am, for readers like you to wait and see.

My appreciation.

The One That Got Away....

At some point in our life, we meet someone who is different and unique. We develop a special feeling that doesn't leave that space in our heart and our memory with that person does not fade despite the passing of time. We may or may not have an intimate relationship with that person due to reasons beyond our control at that time, but looking back now, we can only wish to take back the hands of time and do everything that may lead to something beautiful that will last a lifetime. This time, we won't let that person slip away....

In this world full of weird people, weird environment, weird ideas, and many things unconventional, people from old school are having a hard time to digest and blend with this newly formed society. I am very conservative from the get-go, but I have learned to accept things that I cannot change (based on The Serenity), and try to go with the flow. But the fact remains that although I embraced the new world, that doesn't mean that I am always in conformity. I still practice old values and cope with whatever is new and co-exist. I sometimes live in a bubble where I enclosed myself believing I still belong to the old word that I have gotten used to. I am not an angel nor a saint, but I keep distance with people and the things that I am not comfortable with. If anything, I conform to what is fashionably acceptable. I have a small circle of friends, and they are very pleasant, educated, and well-mannered. I believe in the saying: " Tell me who your friends are, and I'll tell you who you are."

FB, IG, and Twitter are becoming very toxic nowadays. We read all sorts of posts and comments that are sometimes not good for our mental health. There is just too much bashing, shaming, and unpleasant exchanges with the public if you follow the different blog threads. Internet has become the favorite hang outs of the "lonely but mean" people who are lurking and waiting for opportunities to bash and attack innocent bloggers/vloggers whose intent is just to post personal experiences or opinion about daily life. There is no longer a barrier between social and personal manners. No respect, and no regards for other people's feelings. The trend nowadays is to feel privileged and entitled to say and write whatever is in one's mind, regardless of the ethical values the society used to follow. People post about their nemesis, destroying their image in public, in the same manner that they spread their dirty laundry in public as well. It just makes one feel sick of reading all of these, and makes you want to take a break. Here in FFF, where most of the time, your readers are people who do not know you, it's okay to vent. Que sera, sera....

Blogging blindly is such because you know that you do not have a member audience, but you know that outsiders who aren't members of this website are outside lurking in. You think you are alone? Not really! Someone out there is reading your blogs as shown in the number of views. For me, it is okay. Somebody is reading my posts, and more than likely, that person can relate somehow to what I am going through, or the events in my life that I share. No holds barred.Thank you for following....

I am not sure if how I feel is still the effect of the pandemic, early retirement, or the effect of being alone for the longest time. But the period of feeling "low" had been tremendous and is stealing my joy. I know that it is about depression, and I know that everyone goes through this once in a while, but still, not to a point of seeking for professional help. I am just seeking for family or significant others' attention and love....Sometimes, coping with this kind of feeling becomes a tedious circumstance, that you just want the world to stop. Everyone is so focused on their own world that they forget to co-exist, even I do...I think I must go out there and join a small group of new friends since I've outgrown the old ones or maybe, they've outgrown me....The most important thing is, to fight this horrible, unwanted feeling....I am going to conquer this!.....So, Help Me God!

Happy New Year Everyone! I have been away for almost a year, all because I was more focused on the other website. But FFF is a part of my life that I will always look back to and be grateful as it helped me cope with my life's lowest points. I was also able to build solid real life friendship with special people I never thought would make a difference in my life. I believe I touched theirs in so many ways as well. To those who continued to keep this blogville alive and kicking, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

High Functioning Depression: IT IS REAL...

The sudden death of former Ms. America Cheslie Kryst shocked the world! She was 30 years old, and from the outside, no knew that she was carrying the world on her shoulders or that she was suffering from what her mother later admitted as "High Functioning Depression". .She looked and acted so normal... I grabbed myself, and suddenly, analyzing it could be happening in my life, and I am just ignoring it because I do meet the situations where I could suffer from HFD. And then I slapped myself, and said...Naaaaahhhhhh! ( is that a denial again? ) You know, I've been through so many painful experiences in my life, and I really had the opportunity to end my own life, but...leaping from a 60-story building apartment? For a beauty queen to ever want to die that way, I'd say, some kind of force like hearing commanding voices for her to do such a horrendous thing. First of all, what if it will take you hours to die or you still miraculously survive but debilitated? Secondly, deng! that must have been very painful first when she landed the pavement before she even stopped breathing!...But, that is beside the point. I guess, she did not fear dying that way. Instead, she feared dealing with life....I am just thankful that I am God fearing, and no matter how difficult life must have been with me numerous times, I already knew and confident that I will survive!...So, I am here, and I will enjoy what life has to , and be grateful for all the blessings...

I Am Not Perfect!.....

Lately, I stopped trying to_ connect the bridge that my dysfunctional family (brother and sisters) had burnt...I am tired...I am exhausted. I realized, I've done what I could to_ at least catch up with what's been lost during our childhood when my parents separated, and we were separated as well. It's hard when not everyone's on the same page, and with the involvement of the in-laws, it's even worst. I let them be, I just mind my own, my life, my business! I had and still have struggles of my own that I have not even fixed, or maybe, they'll remain broken. But there are still so much to_ enjoy in life...And you know what?....I don't care anymore!!!

The past month of October, I went through some periods of lows that no one even knew because I was so good at hiding it. The pandemic is still around, causing so much stress at work, back home in the Philippines, and my ambivalent feelings of whether to have an early retirement or continue to_ work, just because on top of my head, my family, and my only , who was jobless for the entire year still needs my financial support. Then, it dawned on me, that if I were not around, they will find a way to survive anyway. So, I started on planning on that early retirement which, Godwilling, I'd like to_ commence early part of the year 2022. With that in mind, all of a sudden, good news came! Praise the Good Lord! My was recalled by the Emirates Airlines and as of this writing, he is going on 2 weeks of re-training, and then, he will be part of the roaster of scheduled flights again. Now, I can go ahead and move on with my plans. I just hope and pray that it is in agreement with God's plans for me...Thank you for reading my sentiments...I feel a lot better, but Yes! it's okay, not to be okay.

I just posted in FB yesterday the topic of PRIDE, and it really dawned on me how people, specially women are very particular about their looks. They use all sorts of apps, filters, and what have you to_ make them look prettier than they actually do. Talking about confidence and self esteem. But why? Why can't we focus more on our inner beauty than the outside? Why do we need the " LIKES" and s as a sign of people's approval, rather than them reading the depth of our captions in the blogs? Have you noticed that people in FB looks straight on the pictures and not reading the captions at all? Is that a sign that people are mostly judgmental by just looking at the outside? Your opinion please...
