this thing about advices


Modesty aside, I give rockin’ advice. Trust me when I say this. I swear to you, people come up to me all the time asking me what’s the best thing to do if ever they’re stuck in a specific predicament. What sucks is when it’s my time to ask for advice, I just listen to it but I don’t take it to heart. I hardly listen to it. I still do what I would’ve done in the first place, which I know is just plain wrong.

However, in the past week, I’ve realized that advices are given to be used. So that is exactly what I am going to do. Use the advice that my mom has been giving me for ages: SHUT UP.

The thing is when you get hurt, the best thing that you could do is retaliate and for girls, it ain’t fist fighting, but the use of words to hurt other people. You backstab as much as you can until finally the other person’s reputation is ruined. To say at the very least, backstabbers are the lowest of the low and I used to be one of them.

But not anymore. As of this moment, I am no longer doing that. I am listening to my mother’s advice, I am shutting up. Unless, these people actually say it to my face, I choose to shut up. I would no longer explain myself to anyone since I firmly believe that I don’t have to explain my choices.

So in as much as I want to be mad at the world and hate it entirely, I won’t.

Maybe this is the Lord’s way of preparing me for greater things ahead. This is His way of allowing me to finally stand up on both feet and let go of the things that have been bringing me down.

I don’t understand the situations of my life and I have no idea how I am able to face each day. Its through His strength that I can go on.

See, Life is wonderful. All you have to do is just look at the right places.
