Rain, sun, repeat.

In my country, spring is like life. You can’t know when is it going to rain or the sun is going to shine.

Just like life. You get dressed, put a smile on your face and step out of your house wishing for a good day ahead of you. But then you come back home with the smile faded and just wish that you would let go of all what happened that day. Other days, you wake up cursing that day, that time, and you get dressed and go yurt because you have to. Then the day surprises you! And you return back home wishing to never let go of that day’s memories and sleep with the biggest smile on your face. Just like the weather here. Some days are rainy and blue but other are sunny and warm.

We can’t have sunny days all the time. I know you wish we did, but imagine with me. We are happy everyday, a day will come that we badly wanna cry, scream, get angry. At least now if your life is not going that sunshiny, you can always wish for those day. Instead of having a sunshiny life and wishing for rainy days.

My point is that bad and good days are what make our life has a meaning, what makes our life not boring or meaningless in fact. Like if you kept watching happy movies all the time or sad ones. Eventually, one day you will be done with it. Therefore, just praise the days we live and always keep hoping for sunshiny days. 😉

Fed up yet?

We all have that person who makes you help him with their job/assignment and guess what! They don’t even remember you on normal bases. You are their favorite when a deadline is coming up or exams are just around the corner. There is that other type that uses you for who you are, like money, connections, intelligence and the worst part? They show that they care about you even though they are using you.

Those exactly the type of people who you always have the urge to punch them in the face. However, you don’t and mostly you end up doing what they wanted in the first place. I mean I am even mad writing about them, that my typing speed is faster than light now.

I know they are annoying, but they exist and they are not going to go away any time soon. It doesn’t matter how much you try to build your walls or make your boarders clear, they find their way e-v-e-r-y t-i-m-e. Therefore, don’t bother, just find a way to keep them within the space you want them to be.

I mean sometimes they actually need the help and it’s not affecting you, then so what. Helping is good, but not always though. In other words, just help when you can and when you can’t or will affect you then simply and politely just refuse. Some don’t understand words, right?! No problem! We are going to let them understand. Turn them down once, twice, probably they will catch up on the idea that you can’t or not able to help them. If after all of that they are still showing “disrespect” then unfortunately, their hearts might be a little broken. Just be brave and say it! Though try saying it in a good way. 😀

I know, not helping is a bad thing but sometimes, there are people who don’t need help but still they want to know what you got. Like that guy in college that would get straight As but still asks you about the answers of questions that he already knows, just to know what you got extra. Those are not help, that’s called time wasting. Instead, you could use that time to help someone who is really in need of help, like yourself or that other guy in the same class who really tries his best to learn the lesson but he can’t just keep up with the professor.

That was a long one, but at the end I hope I could show my idea in the best meaning of it. Some people really deserve to be helped and allowed in our lives. On the other hand, unfortunately, some don’t, they would just cause troubles more than anything. And my point here is to keep them away, for your own and everybody around you who you care about’s sake.

A dose of keeping up

Do you ever get the feeling that you want to just disappear to thin air?! Like you never existed or as if this whole life is just a dream/nightmare and you wake up into an easier life or more of an adrenaline rushed one? Just starting from the top. I do, and every night.

Lately, life hasn’t been going anyway easier or less complicated if even it’s passing by. Today is like tomorrow just like yesterday but with more stress, deadlines or troubles. It’s even hard to tell the days sometimes. C’est la vie!

However, when you think it can never go anywhere past this, you find it coming your way as fast as it can. Troubles of life I mean. But after all, a night out with your friends or family, a movie night with your boyfriend/girlfriend, or a nice book with a cup of your favorite drink and the best music would actually feel worthy after all the bad, weird days you pass. Although good times go by so fast, it’s sweet memories won’t fade.

Sometimes you hit rock bottom, but just remember that when you do that’s when it’s the least you can get and it will be the time to rise. And remember, most people are incredibly talented at dragging you down or turning their backs or even better! Stab you in the back. Again, c’est la vie! I like a quote from Harvey Specter , Suits The Tv show. He said ” Let them hate. Just make sure they spell your name right.” In fact, let them hate! Better than loving you in your face and hating you behind your back. People who care about you are the ones who you will find by your side at the hardest times. Not the ones who remember you when it’s their benefit or to spend good time with you. They are the ones who want to be next to you at your hardest times. If you found the person, then lucky you!

I know that all of that is nothing new, I might have even said those words a lot in many of my previous blogs. But, an extra dose to make us keep up with life isn’t bad after all. Right?!

Remember, you are a magnificent weirdo just like me, and people like us are rare to find 😉 😀
