May you all find it!
May you all find it!
Life’s good. Keep it simple.
This is for all of you. No matter what you are going through at this moment, you are loved. That’s right. You are loved.
I’m sure you’ve all thought about death.
The other night I had to walk from the bus station back to where I live, at around 2.00 am. My beloved friends offered to give me a company by picking me up from the bus station in case I may feel lonely and afraid.
That was very sweet of them, but I rejected their offer, since I didn’t want to bother them sleeping. On my way back, I thought to myself “What should I be afraid of? Being robbed? Being raped? Being murdered? or ghosts?” Sounds terrifying, right?
But somehow I wasn’t afraid of anything at all when I thought about how easterners interpret life and death. It’s actually a round circle. That’s right, a circle. We never know when our life begins and when it ends, since it’s running nonstop. Did you ever feel familiar with anyone even before getting to know him/her? Well, believe it or not, it could be that something happened in the last life. So why should I be afraid of death then? I get to be reborn again, and again.
Life and death, not actually in our hands. God decides who leaves earlier or later. So the only thing we can do is to live at this moment and make the best out of every single moment. Why worried about death when it’s not in our hands then?
Facebook has been fascinating, though I found it dangerous. The more I read through other people’s daily life, the more easily my emotions get influenced. But come on! I know they are my friends, but why should I care where they went (a fancy restaurant?!), what they ate (Haagen-Dazs?!), whom were they with (bf? gf?), etc. If I really do care about my friends, I’ll surely do more than just comment on their statuses or like their statuses.
I just wanna say that wake up people! Stop immersing yourself into other people’s life. It’s their own life, so don’t allow it to affect our emotions! Staying away from their life and living our own life feels so much better! And sometimes, if you really care about others, just drop a private message, and that’s called ‘care.’ People do update their life, but trust me, very few people wanna post their true feelings on their wall. So that’s the point, if you really care about them, why not ask them personally?
Me not following other people does NOT mean me not caring about them. I just don’t wanna care about their showing off. That’s it.
