Spinning Motion

Standard

I hate this spinning
motion
that spawns in my chest
and spreads
to every
bit of my
body
that ends in each inch
spinning in different
directions
to where I can’t figure
if my feet are up
or sideways
if my heart is thumping
or stopping
if this world is a
vacuum
because there is
no
air
no
sound
and I am
scared

(An old poem)

Quote of the Week:You Don’t Have To Be Friends With Everybody

Standard

“We live in an age where we feel guilt whenever we have to cut someone off but the reality is that some relationships do need to die, some people do need to be unfollowed and defriended. We aren’t meant to be this tethered to the people in our past.

The Internet mandates that we don’t burn bridges and keep everyone around like relics but those expectations are unrealistic and unhealthy. Simply put, we don’t need to know what everyone else is up to. We’re allowed to be choosy about who we surround ourselves with online and in real life, even if it might hurt people’s feelings.” by Ryan O’Connell

Relationships Nowadays

Standard

Relationships have been replaced with “talking”. Which consist of pointlessly texting and a random phone call here and there. People text or “talk” merely to fill a void when they get bored. Commitment is a rare thing to find. Date nights really don’t exist much anymore. Chivalry is pretty much a thing of the past. There’s no more opening the car’s door for her or going to the front door to pick her up for a date. Today’s society cheating has been accepted way more than it should be and people classify it as a mistake. Since it is accepted more people continue to go back to the same person that has cheated on them repeatedly. (Albert Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results) Feelings don’t really matter anymore and it’s became a hurt someone before you get hurt kind of world. Cheating or crossing the line has become way too easy with social media. People don’t put in the effort that it takes to keep a relationship healthy or work. When things get tough people give up. Relationships have lost its value over the years and they aren’t how they are supposed to be anymore. To the girls that say there aren’t any good guys left in the world, maybe you should reevaluate the kind of guys you pursue. To the guys that can’t find a good girl, I can guarantee that you aren’t looking in the right places.

Wordless Wednesday and Quote of the Week: Stand up against injustice

Standard

olgamisik

The above picture went viral in the past few days, it shows a Russian girl called Olga Misik, she sat  in front of riot police reading the Russian constitution. She read aloud the passage, which affirms the right to peaceful gatherings during protest in Russia for a free election process. She quickly become symbol for Russian resistance and her picture become symbolism of courage against injustice.

This picture reminded me of the following quote by Martin Niemöller, where the majority of people unlike this girl are afraid to speak up or stand up against injustice and oppression:

First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist
Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist
Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist
Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew
Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me.

To my fellow bloggers

Standard

While the world is full of hate, discrimination and racism, I just want to tell every single of you that I love you all regardless of your religion, or skin color and regardless of if I agree with your beliefs  and you agree with mine. Racism will always exist. Sexism with always exist. Fanatic religions will always exist. DISCRIMINATION WILL ALWAYS EXIST. Abuse of power, evident from the top the bottom, will always exist. You & I can only be responsible for what we contribute and what we extract from our lives and the lives of others. Be the change you want to see. Love without expectation of love in return. Give without the expectation to receive. Perspective is everything.  This world was not meant to be perfect nor was it meant to be peaceful. It was meant to test us, tempt us, elate us, burden us, and knock us down…. All to establish our character. It’s easy to be a “good” person when there’s no adversity. But it takes a true and pure heart to remain good when faced with all the negatives.

Love is a verb and not an adjective.

Love you all ❤
