I have yet to narrow down my backlogs. I haven’t drafted nor finalized anything thus I don’t have anything to post at the moment. Maybe because like Shiro, I’m feeling uninspired too. >//< So I’ll be doing this challenge instead. But it doesn’t mean it’s the only option left for me to work on. I really like sharing quotes a lot that’s why I’m eager to do this.
- Post one quotation a day for three days (they can be from other sources or one of your own).
- Nominate 3 other bloggers to participate per post.
- Thank the blogger who nominated you.
So here goes my quote for the day:
If you keep trying to reason with yourself instead of listening to your feelings, you’ll never be able to feel true happiness. – Hiroomi Nase, Kyoukai No Kanata
Sometimes, we do this – deny. We don’t like admitting things to ourselves. Maybe because they’re too embarrassing or too hurtful to declare. I personally have done that in multiple occasions. One was when I didn’t get the title I was aiming for when I was in college. Inside my head there were conversations of “It was unfair! They had the professors’ favor! The evaluations were biased!” and stuff. And in those times, I only became insecure, anxious and bitter. I knew my pride had been deeply hurt. But I never had the courage to admit all these at the earliest time possible. That’s why that incident remained in my mind for a considerably long time – causing me to feel dejected and depressed. Which became too obvious to everyone around me making them feel uneasy, and making me feel more uneasy than I already was. That was a torture to myself. But overtime, I learned that unless I acknowledge defeat I’d never attain victory. That is why, I eventually stopped arguing with myself. I then decided to let it all out. I admitted to myself that it all happened because I didn’t do well enough. I did my best but their best was superior than mine. I slowly began accepting things – whether they’re in my favor or not as long as they stand true. But please note that it didn’t take effect right away. It underwent a process. Everything did (and everything does.) After all, I was the first to benefit from it.
We just gotta remember that our own happiness is a result of our own choices. So we just need to be patient, and be honest (to our dear self). Rest assured, we’ll feel light and happy. 😉
I know a lot of interpretations can be inferred about the quote above, so again, I would like to thank Matt and Kataku as I have again expressed my not-so-important personal thoughts on this. I hope this doesn’t spoil whatever the true meaning is behind the statement.
None for now. Everybody’s busy. (• ε •) But if you want to share a quote a day, please feel free to do so. Jaa~
