I have stepped away from being as emotive as I once was. I shut off my feelings in order to collect how I really felt about the things that were in store in my life at the time. One may say suppressing your emotions and feelings is quite damaging to the psyche. I did quite the contrary.
I almost committed in deleting the last 3 months of posts on this tumblr along with deleting it all together. I have written some things that have brought out the best in others and myself. I have written some things that have been attributed to being as a subjective model of thinking when interpreting my posts, allowing others to apply where they see fit. This is the idea that I prefer the most. After taking a step back however, I can’t delete these things. I won’t erase the past because it has simply been a constructive process. It defined who I am and what I can take. I won’t erase the emotions of the good times and unfortunate faults along the way. I won’t erase the people, their judgements, and the social media. It reminds me of their true moral values and respect that needs nothing short of growth and improvements. I can allow these things to continue to build up because I know only maturity and experience can come out of it. Spitefulness is looming, but that is luck of the draw.
Tumblr post in November, “just wait on it”
Post with 1 note
To take a look back at the past and look at where we are now. To take yourself out of the perspective of the experience and become the third party. The third party then begins to evaluate ones self of the past and what he/she should have done differently. Does the third party begin to dwell on the regrets of the past experience or do they drive on with the experiences to come? We must consider ourselves truly a third party sometimes to understand the reality of situations that are to arise in our lives. We may believe that these experiences may have been the best and the worst of times, but it is most important on how reluctant you are to let in change and adversity. We may face challenges within our lives that are unmeasurable and unpredictable. We may face challenges in our lives of which we may have the most control. These living and breathing mistakes are what makes us human and what allows us to move towards a brighter present and brighter future.
A man does not settle for second best, he waits for his opportunity to capture the most breathtaking adventure that is to come in this thing called life. [waarheid]~B
