Knot Us All

Being in extended family is been a festive for us. Living under the same roof, eating the same food (syempre!). Borrowing stuff in any member of our close-knit community. Sharing thoughts, experiences, different angst in life and even your SUPER corny jokes!!! Arggg!!! Kahit gusto mo ng takpan un tenga mo, wala ka rin namang magagawa, sasabihin at sasabihin pa rin nila yon. T_T Magulo un pamilya ko! Masyadong opinionated and know-it-all. If you compare them to an individual, they possessed strong personality at masyadong aggressive. Kung mahina ka at di ka marunong maki-ride sa sarcastic level of being honest nila.. - nukuh.. uuwi ka ng luhaan!

Pero I know naman na, all family have defects, kaya kahit na-i-isip ko minsan na ipagbenta sila... ? Di ko pa rin magawa kasi super lab ko un mga yan. Lalo na un mga pinsan kong masyado ko yatang naimpluwensiyahan kea un way of thinking nila, somewhat, gaya na rin nong akin. Hayz... I love my family so much kea kahit na hindi ko gusto yong ibang decision nila, wala akong magawa, kasi alam kong they have a point and para sa'min din yun.

Too Much Thinking Is Dangerous To Your Health

Jumping to Conclusion is a natural human tendency, but we must learn to be very careful not to do this. We are constantly bombarded with so much sensory information that is imposible for us to pay attention to everything. Our subconscious mind scans our environment and selects what it deems may be important for us to notice. Even then, people not only see things the way they are, they also tend to see what they expect to see, as well as what they want to see.

Different people tend to lead their decision-making process with their intuition, feeling, hearing, and sensing. Pero, is that enough? People, situations, any reading materials, mga palabas sa TV, etc. Sa lahat ng bagay na nangyayari, pwede tayong mag-isip beyond borders.

I'll take some example sa mga tao. Kahit kelan, you cannot appreciate a certain person, hanggat hindi mo siya totoong nakikilala. At kung may naiisip kang iba, at hindi mo alam kung totoo ba yon o hindi, why don't you ask? Don't conclude! Sometimes kasi, we don't bother to ask questions when we're already satisfied sa kung ano ang nakikita at naririnig natin. Or maybe, the person is too coward to ask questions to bring up some confrontations? Kaya nga there are many things na hindi na se-settle because of this attitude. Hindi masamang magtanong. Ang masama, yong magtahi ng kwento ng hindi mo naman nalalaman kung totoo ba yon o hindi, dahil you let the gestures, do the talking.

Other people ACTIONS can be DECEIVING, alam naman yan ng lahat ng tao. Kaya don't base on anything you can see, hear, and feel because you can interpret it falsely. Pwera na lang kung totoong kilala mo na yong tao at pinagkakatiwalaan mo siya.

Pwede ring pinaglalaruan ka lang ng utak mo or can I say, polluted na yong pag-iisip mo because you're too paranoid? O kaya pwede ring, you're blessed with close-minded mind kaya hindi mo na ini-entertain yong iba pang possible reasons behind those gestures, events, situations etc... Or maybe; Mula't sapul palang, alam na nong taong yon kung ano ang nangyayari kaya he / she also keep playing your game. Pwedeng ang maging reason niya is to confuse other and to have excessive proof to confirm if the intuition is right or wrong.

" BUT " Neither any of these -- YOU CAN'T ASSUME anything, if this is TRUE or NOT, without any evidence. Kasi baka mamaya nagja-JUMP INTO CONCLUSIONS ka na naman and you may not even notice. *smile*

What we perceive is not always what is really going on! Remember to give everyone the benefit of the doubt, and that jumping to conclusions is not the best exercise.

Call Out Friends

To Edz:
I know for a fact that we seldom text or call each other due the unreasonable reason. Valid or not, I know I can count on you whenever I have problems and I’ll know you’d do the same thing. Friends, right?

To Aileen:
Busy taking care of herself and her unborn child that still don’t have a name. (Ooisst, Ninang ako nyan!)

To Lanie:
Just smile.

To Michelle:
Oh, yeah? I get it, I get it! Sssssssssshhhhh!

To Lawrence:
The Fallout Boy! Still there?

To JC:
My loving friend JC who lost in the middle of nowhere because of her unresolved situation but always regains her power in San Diego County. (Correct me if I’m wrong, si Chris ba? Hmmm just kidding!)

Really, I want to greet all my friends here but I’m too lazy to type. I’ll just continue it next time. Ciao!

To Class B of South Side Alabang:
People always have different perspective, opinions, belief and ideals. You don’t have to persuade them just to agree on you. Sometimes it’s hard for us to understand those people who stand up for what they are fighting for, and becomes blind to the beliefs of others.

To Our "Ex-Buddy":
The response of being silence is a big help to admit or denies the allegations raise on any matter. I just imagine myself buried with pillow on my head, sitting in a corner of a large dark room, but it’ll not last. I am here to be heard, not just to stay in the dark and being eaten by all the shadows surrounding me. Silence is just there to help me weigh things on my mind, reflect and consider other circumstances.

I’m being too emotional right now, (thinking what happened). It’s really hard to forgive and forget specially if that “someone” never admitted that he’d done anything wrong to you. There are so many reasons why I am just like this; and as far as I know I’ve been a grateful friend to him. That’s why I was very hurt by what happened to us. Sometimes, I just imagine myself, talking in front of “my ex-buddy”, saying how stupid he was for turning his back on us. I want to spunk him over and over again until he realized what he have done, not just to me, but to all people involved in this drama.

I am just waiting for the right time to clarify things, and when it does, I don’t have to hide any bitterness nor hatred. I am not expecting that he’ll say sorry; but I just want to anticipate that dark clouds will remain over his head until he finds way to straight things up. I just want to teach him a lesson that guilty feeling will never satisfy the existence of an individual, independently. So don’t be such an a**hole!

Summer Bum

My friends and I are planning to go at remarkably “somewhere” places (hmmmm where that should be?). *pondering* Just to spend OR just to say that we have had our vacation. And alas! Right away we’ve plan..

Plan No. 1
Tagaytay – Nope! It’s just an ordinary day trip. Nothing special. Pass.

Plan No. 2
La Mesa Eco Park – Not so bad, hurrah for photographers! Pass.

Plan No. 3
Majayjay, Laguna – Uhhmmm ok.

Plan No. 4
Galera – OK.

Plan No. 5
Puerto Azul – OK.

We noted for our best 3 and choose one. Then we discuss the schedule. Others do not agree on the date we've settled, that’s why we moved.

Then again, many had hesitate (mind you, they also have some plans for their family and friends, including me, hik).

Then we schedule it again.. And again.. And again.

And in the end, after all actions we’ve arrange, consolidation of all our ideas and suggestion, not to mention the emotional, mental and spiritual usage. We’ve decided that this trip is cancelled.

….*scratches head*
