"Don't judge people based on their past mistakes."
I was reading random entries from my archives and arrived at some particularly dark ones. The darkness had long been cleared, but remembering how I was back then still gives me a heavy feeling inside.
But the past can't hurt you anymore unless you let it.
I'm all sunshiney now. I feel like, people with dark clouds surely have more character--parang art, parang painting--pero character or not, I will never go back there.
One week left. Wala parin akong pupuntahan. While on the bus last night, I had a realization na siguro dapat nagfofocus sa dreams at hindi sa fears. In a way, it gave me peace.
When stripped of all the things we carry and weigh us down, siguro don natin malalaman na hindi lahat ng bitbit natin sa buhay e mahalaga.
Maybe I cannot control the thoughts entering my head, but I can always choose which ones I will allow to stay. Maybe I can't control who my heart will cherish, but I can always choose the ones I will nurture and the ones I will let go.
Maybe we have more power in our lives than we thought we do.
I don't want to put so much resistance anymore.
I will be water.
