Parang Life

“Life is a constant struggle to find happiness in a world that denies it, to seek a friend in a world that discriminates anything and anyone outside of oneself, to preserve dignity in a world that highlights flaws and solicits shame.

I waver sometimes. Well, oftentimes. I’m not sure where the courage to bounce is coming from. But every time I do, there is more comfort in crawling up than crawling into that hole. It gives me curious energy, renews my spirit, and replenishes my hopes.


And ultimately it imparts meaning - however vague and fleeting it may be - to my human existence.

Life is a constant struggle to live when we are born to die.”

  2. "Life is a constant struggle to live when we are born to die." -- this line actually made me sad. I don't wanna think about life that way. For me, life has a purpose. It is a struggle, yes, but the struggles are meant to be there so we can see beyond the flaws, the disappointments, the hurts. It's kinda funny, life and all its lessons -- but I guess that's the way it is. When we get lonely, there will be memories which will remind us that life isn't futile at all. There will be genuine friends to cheer us up, or family to understand what we're going through. The bad times will remind us that there are things more important in this world than the fleeting need to be satisfied of our humanity.

    Good morning red. Thank you for the greetings you left on my blog. It was not actually advisable to transfer to a custom domain after 2 years of being on blogger. It's better to have a custom domain when a blog's just starting. A mistake on my part. Haha. See ya
