Confessions of a Sentimentalist

jotting the history; living the moment; dreaming the future

I always believe that conflicts don’t happen because anyone’s wrong, but because of different perspectives and temperaments that people of different characteristics possess. So do we hate? Must we blame? Should we scream our heads off without thinking of how your words hurt or should we just walk away?

What IS the right thing to do when you’re fuming and at crossroads?

Because the line between losing someone you really love and having closer bonds with each other is really this thin.

When’s the time to forgive and make peace? Note I didn’t say forgive and FORGET, cos’ you forgive because you don’t want the person to be forgotten and thrown away for the rest of your life. It’s that simple. As usual, just my two cents(:

I remembered very clearly how ahma broke my heart the previous time. And I’m glad for the fact that I’ve made the decision to make peace AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Because I know ahma didn’t mean to say what she say, no matter how it hurt me. But whatever! It’s over and I’m back to normal. Now I know I won’t have any regrets in my life. Haha.

Yes, things happened, that’s what inspired me to write this post and think about stuffs.

When people chide, it’s because they care. But when 2 different generations collide, this isn’t the case anymore. In the name of love, should we ignore, or persuade, or chide? What’s the best thing to do in search for the best outcome?

As much as I’m glad I’m not the one directly involved, I’m worried too. Like ahma and ahgong, but just in a different way. I listen, you see, and I don’t comment. I learn and grow from experiences around me, and put myself in their perspective.

Kids learn to share and care for each other when they are able to put themselves in other’s shoes and stand in their point of view. Did we all forget, as we grow, to continue this practice as we interact and mingle?

If you have always thought of only your own perspective and wallowing in self pity, why not take a look at how others percieve things then? Maybe you’ll come to the realisation that you’re not that perfect, or pitiful as you think you are.

In the end, we know no one’s really at fault. We just have to find this common perspective and way of thinking that we can share, to help make things better, and most importantly, find happiness and contentment as a result of the love we give.

But can someone tell me, why my heart’s still in such turmoil as I write this post?
