Moving On

Sometimes you have to give up the fight and walk away, and move on to something that's more productive.

... and so I'm moving on.

I will miss a lot of people! Thank you for the memories.

Superhero Syndrome

I'm in trouble. I think I have been showing signs or symptoms of a disorder called Superhero Syndrome. That’s what I’ve come to realize one very early Sunday morning while I was taking a break from an exhausting 30-min jog slash brisk walking. How did I come up with such self-diagnosis?

By the way, that's the South Reclamation Project aka Cebu South Coastal Road. That's my favorite place to go for a jog.

Well, I have always hated bullies. I hate them a lot that I even fantasized of abducting them and put each one of them in an empty sack and hang 'em upside-down with flames underneath just a few inches below their heads. *insert evil laugh here* Teka, biro lang yun. Mga bata, wag gayahin sa bahay! Peru sa totoo lang, ayaw na ayaw kong makakita ng may ina-api. Kumukulo ang dugo ko sa mga mayayabang at mapanlait na tao. I guess that's also how every superhero feels towards bullies. So ano kaya magandang Superhero name ko? Hmmm... Super Mon o kaya Super Monding! Kakampi ng mga inaapi! HuhLOLZ!

Perhaps that explains why I never fail to get myself in trouble let's say once in a year. Haha! Wayback in elementary I was a very short kid. I used to be bullied as well. Kaya mula nun, I promised myself I will fight for my rights til the last drop of my blood! Kapag May Katwiran, Ipaglaban Mo! *insert Ipaglalaban Mo Theme Song here*

Aside from that hatred to all the bullies, I have this pact to myself and to my family that I will be their savior, that someday I will help them get off from poverty. That is why even though working on a graveyard shift at a call center is risky, I'm still here, working as hard as I can.

Imagine how hectic my superhero life has been! I've been juggling love, work, revenge, commitment, family and saving the world. Wheow! Beat that! *Hi! I'm a man of steel and you're my magnet!*

Yet no matter how much effort I exert, no matter how hard I work, sometimes, it never seems to be enough. There comes a point in my life that I tell myself, "I can't take this anymore!" I'm tired of being selfless. I'm tired of being the undying source of unconditional love. *Hehe! Tita Cory ikaw ba yan!*

Seriously, I think I need to treat myself nicer this time. That would mean, I will do my best to stay away from trouble. To avoid getting involved with stressful activities. Or simply to avoid stress. Oh wait, stress is inevitable in the real world. That's right. Then, I will just treat myself nicely to atleast cope up with stress. Hmm.. I'm hoping my 3-day vacation leave application gets approved so I can go swimming and just have fun! Forget all the worries. Take all the hatred and grudges away and just wear that innocent smile with all sincerity and sparkling eyes. ^_^

Wheow! It feels good already.

Many of us hold our lives to a standard higher than we have for other people. We need to learn to give ourselves a break. Superheroes only exist in books and movies. (This not Twilight nor New Moon and I am way too brown to be Edward Cullen. LOL.) This is real life and we are humans - but we can still go on to accomplish great things. We just need to love ourselves first.

PS: That half-naked guy in the picture, that's not me. Believe me. I was just too convinced that I look so alike with that person. Or don't you think he looks like Danyl Johnson of X-Factor? To whoever owns that pic, if you happen to visit my blog and you want it removed from this page, just feel free to let me know. ^_^

Have a great week ahead guys! Don't forget to smile. It feels good. =)
