✨ #GOALS ✨ “Don’t be bitter, be better.” Can I be honest for a minute? I’ve been hearing the bitter bug whispering in my ear lately. I’ve almost fell into the trap of focusing on the way people have treated me (negatively) instead of focusing more on treating ME better. Yes, “they” may have done you wrong but two wrongs NEVER make a right, right? When people treat you wrong, acknowledge it but don’t stay stuck there. Tell them respectfully how they violated you and give them instructions & an opportunity to do better. When you know better you do better, in the meantime you focus on being better to you! ✨self talk✨Thoughts? ⬇️
The worst sketch in the world. Make it a thousand times over,and it eventually starts looking better.
At some point,drawing no longer remained a thing which I would do or was doing. It became something which happened. I sketched whatever I saw,morning to night. All day,each day,like an obsession and a disease,until people would ask why I would sketch all day and what was the point of it when others were better at it without practicing as much as me. I know I am not too good at it. And that is why I cannot stop doing it. I am not a competitive person,and some victories I do not want in my life. I would rather pride myself in keeping up with it,even when the results are not there. Love is keeping the promise anyway,even when you know that keeping it will be painful and not lead to anything major in the future. Love is going on when there is no reason to go on.
Just can’t catch a break! Hope everyone’s doing well; I’m not, but hey I’ll be fine. 🦋
Exam time is that time when it hits you how common it is among students to shame their classmates for utilizing the same span of time they’d been given to prepare for exams but they’d rather cover up their inability to get the job done themselves & chat shit. I mean the last time I checked, you’re supposed to study?? and give your all!? I get it, procrastination is pure evil, that, teamed up with laziness and lack of motivation can be so irritating and trust me my experiences are far worse, but i TRY. Because that’s literally all I can do. Despite the state of my mental health, whatever shit I’m going through I just drag myself and go as far as I can because even if I lose hope, I never lose it completely. There’s always something that keeps me going from within.
Now you’d think I’m some topper of my class; lol no, that’s not true. And I wouldn’t want to be either if all it takes to be one is cramming the shit out of courses — that’s something I suck at. I just need to understand the concepts, because I feel the need to “know” what’s the purpose of studying the particular topic.
I’m writing all this today (when i should be taking a much needed nap after that kind of exam💆🏽♀️) particularly because today’s exam was conceptual-based and trust me I couldn’t be more relieved.
All I ever ask for from people in general is be empathetic towards eachother. It costs absolutely nothing!
Re the picture, it’s an old one. I remember how I was trying to distract myself after the brief mental breakdown I had just a few minutes ago. You can’t even tell! Lol.
99% Doubt & 1% Faith?
During the film project, I got asked a the question, if I got doubts? I said yes, I’m not perfect, I cry sometimes and at times I doubt life and everything. I know this shocks people because religion taught us to put a mask on, because there is no space for doubters, you can’t doubt you need more faith? More faith??? Okay try to explain this to someone who lost a loved one, explain it to someone who got abused or is depressed.
This is a lie, we don’t need more faith but we need faith in the midst of our doubt. Faith in the midst of depression and oppression. Doubt is not the absence of faith, it’s actually the evidence that you are a human who is battling life. Let’s put the mask down, the world is hurting, people are hurting and we are pretending to be perfect. It doesn’t surprise me that people can’t connect with our faith, especially millennial generation who hates fake. Let’s be real, honest and transparent: people will connect more with our shortcomings than our success. Don’t forget it was the wounds of Jesus, that saved a hurting world. I’m 99% doubter but I got 1% faith enough to move mountains. #thoughts#thinker#doubt#faith#lifestyleblogger#mountains#lake#switzerland#worship#faith#global
Camus eloquently addresses the danger of playing too casually with existential angst. “Life is absurd” has an adolescent, anti-establishment, rock-n-roll appeal. But what's next? What do you stand for? Recognizing the absurdity of life does not absolve us of responsibility. Rather, it prompts us to take on the ultimate challenge of making our own meaning. || "The realization that life is absurd cannot be an end, but only a beginning. This is a truth nearly all great minds have taken as their starting point. It is not this discovery that is interesting, but the consequences and rules of action drawn from it.” - Camus’ review of Jean Paul Sartre’s “Nausea.”
