Something bad happened. I wake up, and it’s all over. But this time, i can’t wake up. I’m stuck here, forever. I tried to run away, but i failed. Nothing can be done. The nightmare woke me up several times in the night. I thought it’s over, but it’s still here. I can’t do anything but to face it. I wanted to give up, but the world don’t allow me to. I have been searching for my courage since then..

The train sets off from deport, your mom gave birth to you. You sat on the train, arriving at your very first station. The first few passengers were your family members. They stayed sat down and taught you how to operate your train, just like how they did when you were young. They accompanied you as you continued your journey to the next station. The door opened, you started to see unfamiliar faces. You were afraid. No fear. Your family members were with you. As you go past more and more stations, you realized people come and go. Some came in your life for a short duration, as short as the distance of one station from another, while some stayed through longer…

Standing the middle of the crowd. Not knowing what to do. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing who to talk to. Not knowing who i am… The pace of the crowd gets faster and faster but my heart slows down. Although it’s noisy out there, but i just can’t hear anything. The minute seems eternity. Everyone seems to have a goal, but i am just standing on the same old spot. Wanted to scream all out, but my voice just won’t project. How i wish there’s a place for me. How i wish there’s a someone here for me. I am lost.

There exist a line between each and every people. The line that separates people. The line that differentiate peoples. The line which indicates the boundary of that person. The line…
Every person have that one line. You may call it the comfort zone, social line or the wall. The more you know about the person, the closer you gets to the line. Same goes the other way round. The lesser you know about the person, the further you are from the line.
People tend to cross the line once they get too comfortable. The line existed there for a reason. You may not mean harm but it might not be the same for the other party. Crossing the line holds great consequences…
So the question is: Will you cross the line?
The sound of your heart beat gets louder and louder, beats of perspiration runs down your face and starts to pay no attention of the surrounding. Perhaps you’re worrying for a person, a situation, or even urgently looking for a washroom?
The moment that you have been logging for, the pain that you have endured, the anticipation, the time which seemed like eternity, the anxiety, ended with a sign of relieve. Your mind suddenly set free and everything around you seemed to slow down. The smile that hanged on your face never fades.
“True compassion means not only feeling another’s pain but also being moved to help relieve it.” -Daniel Goleman
What is HAPPINESS?
JOY? PLEASURE? SATISFACTION?
May not necessarily be laughing out loud to show that you’re happy. It might just be a tight lips smile but deep in the heart, there is happiness in it.
Are you happy now?
Happiness may not be something that happened on you that makes you happy. It may be on your friends, family, loved ones. Those days when you just laugh off your stomach and just can’t stop laughing at every single things that happened. The smile that never fades, the deep breath after laughing hard, the atmosphere that never goes down, the place where judgement doesn’t exist, the unfiltered true self. Everyone have the rights to have their own form of happiness 🙂
“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” – Dr. Seuss
I will end off with this video. Sure to brighten up your day!
There are many types of disappointment in life. Be it LIFE,RELATIONSHIP,ACADEMIC,CAREER.
You most likely expected an out come but yet to fulfill it which led to disappointment. Although you tried, and tried, and tried but no matter how hard you try, things just don’t go right. Negative thoughts start to flow through your brain and take over you. Those days when you just want to cover yourself up under the blanket and run away from reality. NO, YOU CAN’T. You can hide now, but not forever. Rearrange your thoughts and give yourself a pat on your should and whisper this: you can do it. As the legend says, when one door is closed, another window is opened for you.
“You must make a decision that you are going to move on. It wont happen automatically. You will have to rise up and say, ‘I don’t care how hard this is, I don’t care how disappointed I am, I’m not going to let this get the best of me. I’m moving on with my life.” – Joel Osteen
