“The feeling of Love, in itself, is not loving but a yearning to be loved. Love is action and a decision to act beyond what makes us feel good.” I remember convincing myself I love my brother on the INSIDE even if I fight with him most of the time when we were younger. I remember justifying … Continue reading LOVE Beyond Feelings

How many scars do you have? Don’t Include the pimple marks or the ones from chickenpox in the count. I got a burn from my uncle’s motorcycle exhaust— first degree...second degree superficial...second degree deep was when I felt (!) the effect of the exhaust on my leg not knowingly pressed against the recently parked motorcycle. … Continue reading THE FAULT IN OUR SCARS
We need friends. Most, if not all, want friends. And though I may have qualified for being anti-social in my earlier years, I’ve had my fill of really good bestfriends in every chapter of school life- gradeschool, highschool, college. I do hope they feel the same way. Ever since I must say, I matured in … Continue reading THE FRIEND WHO NEVER WAS

DEBATE? D'BAIT? ('di)*ABATE? Debate- arguing especially in a formal manner. I don't like debating. But somehow in many circumstances I find myself arguing for my position. My highschool classmate thought I was going to be a lawyer since we debated often (did you win Ninang? "He said, always 😋"). But I want to believe I … Continue reading DEBATE? D’BAIT? (‘di)*ABATE?
Just Love Can we run out of love? Surely we are human. How long can you put up with a child who defies you and shows no respect? Until when will one allow a philandering spouse to have the company of another before the martyr spouse finally leaves? When will you stop being a friend … Continue reading Just Love (Kapamilya Ninang?)
GOOD VIBES.. BAD VIBES (Vibes tayo Ninang ha!) I envied people with good vibes. People like them. I like them. Without speaking, without smiling (well maybe a little), they make people comfortable just being there. Charismatic, trustworthy by default, they speak, and we loosen up. I needed more effort to be liked. I don't give … Continue reading GOOD VIBES.. BAD VIBES (Vibes tayo Ninang ha!)

An employee steals. Lovers elope. A mother curses. Unforgiveness. Enough!!! They need more. More effort to show appreciation. More patience. More understanding. … Continue reading MORE!
