Got this from CNN: Andrew Mesta suffers a “brain freeze” on May 26 while eating ice cream and brownies as a reward for good behavior and attendance at his grade school in New Mexico
*cute nung kid in a poor way 😦
Cielo, a former team mate, said that when she saw this shirt that it reminded her of me…honga! i love shoes..nope, I adore them…shoes and bag are my addictions! When I last counted I had around 37 pairs of ‘active’ shoes and counting….hehehehehe…my bags..ay, I’d rather not count na…
The question is not why fools fall in love. It is expected of them. When “smart” people fall in love – that’s the problem.
A guy that my mom tried to set me up with before asked me the question below:
R: just wanted ask if your open for a new man in your life
I answered yes but deep inside I was still asking myself if I really was…am I? Am I really ready to go into another relationship? Am I ready to go into another relationship without the ghost of the past hanging over me? Am i ready to fall in love again? Am I ready to care about someone again? Am I ready to open myself up to a myriad of emotions again? Am I ready to open my self to getting hurt again?
Am I??? I’m not so sure…I think I’m not ready yet..my rational self says that I’m not but my lonely self says that I am…I followed my heart before and look where I ended up so this time I’m following my brain. I do not want to go into another relationship knowing that deep inside I am still in love with y-know-who. That deep inside my happy strong facade that I put up everyday, I still pine for him and wish that he is here now with me…I need to be fair to myself and to whoever it is I’m gonna be with next that I’m getting into the relationship with no excess baggage and no hang ups. Unfortunately, that time hasn’t arrived yet. Here I am still trying to heal myself. Still picking up the shattered pieces of my heart. Still trying to rebuild my life and myself. I just wish that tomorrow when I wake up my love for him has totally vanished into thin air…I wish…I wish…
“Someone I cared about said to me that maybe he just can’t handle relationships. And
those words broke my heart. It’s like hearing someone say he’ll be an emotional cripple for the rest of his life because sustaining any kind of relationships be it as a friend or a lover is what makes us human. I don’t believe there’s “handling” a relationship as much as “building” one, do you? And then I came across these… really good reminders if we want our relationships to stay and for keeps.
1. Don’t think in terms of forever. Think of now, and forever will take care of itself.
Recognize that all relationships cannot be forever. Recognize their temporary quality, but continue to act as if they are permanent.
2. Expect to invest a great deal of time and energy in your relationships. Lasting
relationships don’t just happen, they are created.
3. Respect the other person’s relationships apart from you. If they are important to the
one you care about, they should be important to you.
4. Never idealize others. They will never live up to your expectations.
5. Don’t be afraid of giving. You can never give too much, if you’re giving willingly.
6. Never force anyone to do anything for you “in the name of love.” Love is not to be
7. Don’t allow experience to harden your heart; rather use it to become more aware and sensitive.
8. Don’t lose touch with the craziness in you. This, with a large dose of caring, will assure that your relationship will never be boring.
9. Don’t brood. Get on with living and loving. You don’t have forever.
10. Always start a relationship by asking: Do I have ulterior motives for wanting to
relate to this person? Is my caring conditional? Am I trying to escape something? Am I
planning to change the person? Do I need this person to help me make up for a deficiency in myself? If your answer to any of these questions is “Yes”, leave the person alone. He or she is better off without you.
11. Keep the child in you alive and playing.
12. Divorce, fighting, arguing will never solve your problems; better to try
understanding, warmth and flexibility.
13. Stop going through life in self-pity, self-blame and “mea culpa” syndrome. We are not as bad as we think.
14. Write down all the reasons why you love each person you relate with. Then, when the
going gets tough, take the list out and reread it. It resolves problems quickly.
15. Don’t be afraid of disagreements and arguments, the only people who don’t argue are
people who don’t care or are dead. In fact, don’t have short arguments. Make certain they
are thoroughly over and done with. After an argument is over, forget it.
16. Watch out for little irritations, they grow into destructive monsters.Verbalize them
17. Let go of pride. It is usually false, creates barriers and prevents closeness.
18. Acknowledge the humanness of the other.
19. Exercise feelings. Feelings have meaning only as they are expressed in action.
20. Be compassionate. It is the sure way to understanding and acceptance.
21. See all criticism as positive for it leads to self-evaluation. You are always free to
reject it if it is unfair or does not apply.
22. Expect what is reasonable, NOT what is perfect.
23. Stop playing games. A growing relationship can only be nurtured by GENUINENESS.
24. Even though you are only half of a relationship, you must remain a whole person,
apart from the relationship.
25. Remember that moral and spiritual values don’t restrict, they PROTECT.
26. What you learn about yourself will infinitely help in trying to understand others.
27. See problems as small MIRACLES which can bring about KNOWLEDGE AND CHANGE.
28. Don’t allow your relationships to die of NEGLECT.
SOMEONE SAID:” Love is supposed to be the most wonderful feeling. It should inspire you and give you joy and strength. But sometimes the things that give you joy can also hurt you in the end.”
