the roller-coaster ride

don't let other people's bitterness and hate make you bitter and hateful.

It is scary when the very foundation of what makes us happy is threatened by those who we know can live up to their threats. Life is simple, but it is never fairly easy to us all. The thing is, we will always have problems. We will always have people envying after us. We will always have people breaking our hearts and leaving us behind to pick up the remaining pieces alone. We will always have people who stay awake at night praying for our bad fortune. And life goes on. They will always be there. But we cannot allow their insensitivities (commercial: spellcheck says this is not a correct word. hahaha) to be the reason for our failure. Our happiness should depends on ourselves, not on what others have in store for us.

chances are only as good as we make them.

It's hard to decide, especially when the changes such decision will bring include a lot of unexpected and foreign things. Fear makes our imagination more active. We sometimes forget to hold on to hope, we sometimes forget what it's like to be brave. Whenever I feel down and scared, I like to think that we should take it one step at a time. Now that I am a few days in having to decide the career path to take, I am getting more and more scared. Cross the bridge when you get there, still, sometimes I just can't imagine the possibilities when I arrive at the bridge. People around me are also adding to the pressure. It's crazy. But hell, yeah, I love it.

there will come a time when it will makes sense.
