A few weeks ago, when I sauntered into the room I found out that among my peers, I was the only plus size lady around. At 5'3", I weigh a whopping amount of 60 kg which is still within the normal range according to the BMI (Body Mass Index). I'm apparently surrounded by slim beauties that were shorter than I. Now this automatically sends red alert signals in my brain. You could imagine the startling differences in our body types (I have the apple shape, by the way). Normally, I wore slacks and jeans instead of skirts and dresses when going to work. What I noticed is that it made me look like a box car. It gave me a drab ... Read More

I wasn't always this strong person. There was a time in my life that I've been a pathetic loser who thought that ending my life was the solution. Note that at such a young age, I was a perfectionist and I lived in my own rules. I follow it diligently so as not to end up miserable like the mobs. In a way, it isolated me from the crowd but at the same time propelled me to live a safe and successful life. I was pretty wise for my age, not that I'm bragging, but I do. I have an old soul after all. I'm very proud of my achievements. Especially on how I can get things done when I put ... Read More

Why? Why? Why? Why would someone give up on themselves? How can they just let things be and not fight for their dear life? Are they tired of living? I guess, we are all guilty of that at some point in our life. I've been on the verge of losing my life five years ago. But life goes on and giving up, destroying the scintilla of life you have left isn't an option. For everytime you destroy yourself, your loved ones suffer the brunt of it. *** It's like a dull ice pick is being repeatedly stabbed in my chest whenever I watch you destroy yourself, dad. When I was younger, you were so strong, so capable. But you have a weakness ... Read More

Saudade

0  
by themonochromereaper / / Poetry
The loneliness engulfs my senses Whenever you’re not around. But the love that remains Is what keeps me going. The feelings & experiences That brings about pleasure, Excitement & safety Now evokes a deep nostalgic Yearning within me. Then I told God: I wish you’re here beside me. A mixture of sadness and happiness Overflows within me – I’m missing my love Yet thankful for being loved. But why is this happening? I feel void, hollow & pathetic. I feel lost like I’m swimming Under a moonless night, Then slowly sinking in a ... Read More

History tends to repeat itself. On the surface everything seems tranquil. Everyone's amicable now that they've got their minuscule share of the land. Some of the land's already been divided and settled by the lawyer. But what's startling to know is that there were more properties hidden by elders unknown to us. Personally, I don't need it for I've got no intention of living with toxic individuals in the future. It's also unwise to conduct business with them knowing how underhanded they can be. Nope, it's not a worthwhile investment of money, effort, time and affection.   I'm distressed by the thought that some people choose peace and change their perceptions whenever they receive cash or properties. Is that human nature? Sorry ... Read More
