In na in ang INSECURITY nowadays!

“I hate him because he knows he’s handsome and he’s working his charms perfectly…”

That was one of the lines that I kept on telling a friend of mine one fine day (I'm pertaining to someone in our publication --- that's a given already). And after I opened the topic he also expounded that line (and I nod in agreement with him) oh well, another insecure alert.

I am insecure. I always do. When I’m insecure with a person, instead of seeing the good in him/her I’m already blinded with my insecurity and see all the negativities instead (tsk.. tsk.. tsk..)
And one way to cope with it? I do a lot of comparing and assessing; I compare the subject of insecurity and myself and guess who wins the comparison? A resounding “ME”.

I’m born that way… and no one’s in their position to judge me with my DISEASE (it’s habitual). Though I know it hurts when someone tells you “You’re so ugly, why don’t you ask Belo for an overhaul?” --- (Hey, nobody asked that to me. But we use that line to kid others) but reality hurts and it hurts too much. That’s why facing reality is more difficult than daydreaming on things you want to have. And though it’s a tough job, we need to deal with it.

So back to the topic, why do we have these insecurity issues within ourselves? Why do we succumb to the fact that we are perfect creations of God, and no one is and will be better than us?

We are perfect creations of GOD in his image and likeness. With that, I know that I’m perfectly created, crafted exquisitely, and donned into perfection by our creator.

But then the inevitable happens… we tend to compare. It’s not a tendency, because it happens all the time. And the worst part is, we forget how unique we are because of it.

How to solve this issue? First is to be contented of who you are, what you have and what you don’t have. But don’t overdo it; it may take its toll against you (in moderation nalang).

Secondly, STOP the comparing and comparison thingy! It will do you no good and will just leave you empty and insecure all the time. Just stop comparing and start living (from Bo Sanchez). Because with what you’re doing, you are completely forgetting other important things like your family, studies, and GOD. Try not to compare and start loving your self. Because in the long run --- it is your self you have. Remember this: “The only person who can put you down is YOUR SELF” Right?

Thirdly, if that insecurity is innate and is undying try diverting your attention to other important things. Try extreme sports and talk on other brain stimulating topics. You can also write all your insecurities on a paper and burn it all. As you burn the paper so are your insecurities. (Burn It Baby!)

Lastly, have faith in GOD. God has purpose on why he made you look like that. His plans are for your betterment not for your humiliation. He knows best. He really does. Pray and Pray. It’s free, no charge just lay down all your problems in him and let him cure all your insecurities. Note: You must also do your part. Sabi nga “Nasa Diyos ang awa, Nasa Tao ang Gawa”

Insecure no more? You should be. You are more than that! You are who you are! J Believe me!

Why YOU should apply for a Mercury Drug Suki card NOW!

I am not a fan of discount cards, BEFORE. I find these things space eaters in my wallet (where eventually there is a lot of free space for now). Whenever the cashier asks me for any discount card I would just say I don’t have any and I have no plan of owning one yet. And when the middle-aged cashier insists I apply for one because the queue is not long and literally she has all the time in the world to answer my questions and whatnot the skeptic in me kindly declines the offer and pays mypurchase.
In retrospect, I believe I applied for an SM advantage card years ago and forgot to replace the temporary card given to me in exchange for the original one. And that’s it. That’s how far my fancying for discount cards will take me.
But now a change of heart happened. I now love discount cards! And I’m planning to apply and collect as many cards as I could possibly own.
Why? Because times are difficult these days. The prices of commodities have skyrocketed plus the taxes and other (economics) st…

Happy Mother's Day Ma!

My dearest mama,
How are you?
How is everything up there?
Are you doing well there? I hope you’re doing great.
Is it true what they tell us here? That there is no pain and sickness there? Only happiness and eternal peace?  If that’s true then I’m envious of you. You are in a better position than all of us here.
To update you on my life here’s the status quo: Grief has always been a daily thing for me now. Since the day you left us, there’s that emptiness in my heart – a hole that remains, a void that sits somewhere and always tries to make its presence felt.
There are also these waves they call, when out of nowhere I am reminded of you and then a wave of emotion just stirs me to tears.  It leaves me for a while and returns with an increased intensity. Somehow I get used to these waves and the heaviness that comes with it. There are bearable moments, when I can just fight back the tears. But then there are also tough days when I’m at a public place and I cannot control myself from crying. O…

LSS: Feelings (Up Dharma Down)

I have so many emo times, these are moments of solitude and alone time. Whenever I feel the longing to be alone and lonely I listen to songs that would exude the kind of emotion I want at that particular moment (specifically loneliness and exclusion). Talking about emotional songs, I stumbled upon one by Up Dharma Down. After listening to their latest album “Capacities” I was caught up by one of the songs from the album. Feelings is by far the most creative and emotional English song I’ve heard from UDD. I mean Oo, Tadhana and Indak are my favorite Filipino UDD songs but a song written in English which elicits the same emotions brought by the previous tracks is something, right? The song is well-crafted, with lyrics so poetically poignant you’ll end up pressing the REPEAT button (which I did for so many times).

If the lyrics are already good enough, wait until you’re captivated by Armi’s soothing voice. Her voice has that commanding presence which you can listen to all day for the rest…
