044: darkness and pain

Friday, 7 April 2017



People hate falling.

I hate falling. The idea of letting yourself going through endless tunnel of darkness and having unknown creatures called inferiority, insecurity and mere darkness that might swallow you. It does not ease me at all. Pessimistic at it best, I know. I have been keeping everything under the blanket for such a long time that it suffocates me now. I am good at pretending to be all good, but I guess its eating me inside.

What worst could it be?

I think I'm losing myself.

I do not know who I am anymore?
I feel like I'm losing my colors
I do not know what I like. 
My passion, well metaphorically speaking is like the pumpkin cart in Cinderella story.
Puff, suddenly missing at midnight.
Forgotten because there is nothing more important than finding the owner of the glass slipper.
I'm losing a lot of things as I go through that darkness.

Yet, that is so wrong on many level. You, should not follow that gravity. Why am I letting myself to fall on the first place? Of course, falling is good. Following the flow could do some good to ourselves because who knows how the 'fall' could actually shapes you, to a better unthinkable you. In a way, no offense. Ignorance is good too. It just, we should not sing ignorance. It is a bad habit to publicly announce to the world that you are stupid.

I am a mess. I hate writing in negative tone. It just at this right moment, I cannot help it other than finding my own comfort in spilling emotions through word like I always do, before. A friend of mine, always remind me that "Bottling things would not make pain any less better. Cry, if you need to cry." There is someone who once commented in my previous entry that I should not be scared of writing anything - just write anything to express yourself.

I might look stupid right now. But nah, I care no more.
I need a catalyst. That's it.
Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.
- Do Not Go Gentle Into That Goodnight by Dylan Thomas

Yes Faten. Dont be scared to be yourself. Just write anything to express yourself. Hidup kita tidak perfect all the time. Perasaan kita pun bukan positif all the time. That's life :)

"Bottling things would not make pain any less better. Cry, if you need to cry."

Just like u said, I used to keep things by myself before and yes it was suffocating. I recommend you not to do that, relieve the burden. Try different things to see where your heart goes, to see what actually your heart love to do :)

What a coincidence. I've been feeling blue lately especially when I was rejected by companies that I'm applying to so I spent my days in a blanket listening to sappy sentimental songs crying lol

Kalau boleh nangis, nangis lah. Kalau menangis tu buat jadi lagi lega. 😊

isn't it weird kan, once we are in negative mood, we would draw ourself deeper in those emotion? Lol. My friend said, it is a way for us to express the feeling.

Nevertheless, be strong! I'm sure another company would accept you :D

hahahahaha it helps, tapi taksuka menangis XD

Crying is my hobby! Ehhhh? Hehehehehe... Tak apalah, hidup ni kan bukan selamanya kita di atas. Ada pasang surutnya. Kite pun tengah sedih jugak lately... 😌🍃
 
Blogger faten.banana said...
huaaa i should spread positive vibes but instead --' howevr, is it weird to feel good that there is also another person who feels the same way as we are? that being sad, to suffer this kind of emotion is also part of being normal human being :')

There's nothing wrong in writing your emotion, especially if it would make you feel better. Whatever the reason behind your feeling when you wrote this, hope you got over it already. Cheer up :)
