For a really ordinary day, I chose to wear a simple black chiffon top with petal details and denim shorts. To prevent the outfit from being too boring, I had to put in some colors. Hence, the color block heels and the pink lace detachable collar from Chic Habit. Since I feel incomplete without an edgy touch to it, I decided some silver hardware accessories will do the trick.
Just yesterday, I came home from a meeting and found a series of tweets on my twitter account from an anonymous user who has been trying to put me down. It's not the first time. Even in the past, a few people have placed some negative statements on my comment box. It's probably a certain price that you have to pay for when you blog. People judge you and you can't blame them. It is what it is. What I usually do is, after reading it, I just delete it. Dedma lang.
One thing my boyfriend told me is that, "Do not feed the trolls. Once you engage with them, once you answer back or talk to them, the more they'll try to torment you." And he's right. In this world, no matter how good or nice you are, when certain negative things about you surface up, that's the first or only thing people will concentrate on. There are people who will not consider the good things you have done or won't even give you that chance for you to show that you can probably change their minds.
After thinking about the encouraging and uplifting tweets I got from a few of my readers, I sat for a while, looked blankly at my desktop and thought things through. A lot of you who are currently reading this might be experiencing the same or have gone through something similar in the past. Most of you may feel you've been judged, you may feel misunderstood, you may feel mistreated, or probably you feel like people dismiss the fact that you deserve a second chance. Drawing sincere and heartfelt thoughts in my heart, I composed this facebook status and posted it on my FB page wall:
We really can't do anything about people who choose to see what is negative in us without considering that there's also something good in us. We are not perfect. Our imperfections only prove we're human. Example, in love, we are all looking for a partner who will love and accept us for who we are - the good and the bad. And in real life, this is what we need in all kinds of relationships; people who will understand us and see us beyond our mistakes and faults. If they can't do that, we can't force them to. Just let go, and let God.
