Weekly Quotes To Ponder 47



I find delight in reading quotes, pondering about it, and sharing my thoughts with others. In today’s ‘dog eat dog world’, it’s a rarity to find people who are raw and would show you how vulnerable they are. Most humans are too busy putting on a show, acting like they are better than everyone. Too few people are aware that honesty is attractive.

This would be the 47th Weekly Quotes To Ponder post in my blog. The original schedule is every Wednesday of the week, however, due to circumstances beyond my control (single mother now, four children to attend to and a full-time work from home job), there are times that I wasn’t able to write on the very day. Please bear with me.


Going back to the quote above…

For me, life need not be so complicated. Even answers to most of life’s questions could be a simple Yes or No. I’d rather you tell me what it is upfront and give me the option to take it or leave it, than beat around the bush, and confuse us both in the end. Wouldn’t it be great if we are free to express what we really are without the fear of rejection? I would even appreciate it more if others would show me how their day sucks so that I would have an opportunity to make it better for them. I am sick of all the show, the disguise, and the hero acts. If you are in my life, I want you to be in your own skin. No need to fake a smile on my behalf, no need to pretend just to please me. At the end of the day, the people who are meant to be with us will stay, no matter what.

What do you think? I’d appreciate your thoughts on this. have a blessed week, everyone!

Tight fingers, head spinning,
Sight, a little blurry
Research isn’t my kinda thing.
