Hidden Gems From Ancient Philosophers

Filed under: Main — rhycel @ 7:46 am

• The people you interact with the most influence your behavior. Consciously consider whom you allow into your life, and choose to spend more time with those that hold you accountable and encourage you to move forward.
• Those who don’t prepare for the unexpected pay a high price when tackling important issues and are more likely to give up. Things can go wrong, anticipate worst-case scenarios to mitigate or avoid it.
• Acting based on habit can lead to mistakes whenever the situations at hand mismatch the ones that led to the creation of the habit.
• Be as invested in building yourself as you are in building your professional life. Study yourself, have ideas, develop them and the relationships that further them.
• Ignore the breaking news and focus on what’s in front of you.
• Take pride in your work, but know that it is not all there is. Don’t get so wrapped up in your work that you think you’re immune from the reality of aging and life.

Meantime Girl

Filed under: Main — rhycel @ 5:37 pm

She’s the one you call when you’re bored because
she makes you laugh… she’s the one you talk to
when you’re feeling down because she’s willing
to lend an ear and be a friend… She’s not the
one you call when you need a date to your
company’s Christmas party, or to go dancing with
on a Saturday night… She’s the one you spend
time with between girlfriends, before you
find “The One.” You know, the one who you keep
around in the meantime.She’s not one of the
guys, not a tomboy, but you don’t look at her
as “real woman” either. She’s not *****y enough,
moody enough, or sexy enough to be seen in that
light. She’s too laid-back, too easily amused by
the same things your male buddies are amused by.
She’s too understanding… too comfortable — she
doesn’t make you feel nervous or excited the way
a “real woman” does. But she’s cool, and nice,
and funny, and attractive enough that when
you’re lonely or horny and need intimate female
companionship, she’ll do just fine…You don’t
have to wine and dine her because she knows the
real you already, and you don’t have any facades
to keep up, no pretenses to preserve. You’re not
trying to get anything of substance out of her.
She’s not easy, but you know that she cares
about you, and is attracted to you, and that
she’ll give you the intimacy you need. And you
know you don’t have to explain yourself or the
situation… that she’ll be able to cope with the
fact that this isn’t the beginning of a
relationship or that there’s any possibility
that you have any real romantic feelings for
her. It won’t bother her that you’ll get up in
the morning, put on your pants, say goodbye, and
go on a date with the woman you’ve been mooning
over for weeks who finally agreed to go out with
you. She’ll settle for a goodbye hug and a
promise to call her and tell her how the date
went. She’s just so cool… why can’t all women be
like that?!..But deep down, if you really think
about it (which you probably don’t because to
you, the situation between the two of you isn’t
important enough to merit any real thought), you
know that it’s really not fair. You know that
although she would never say it, it hurts her to
know that despite all her good points and all
the fun you two have, you don’t think she’s good
enough to spend any real time with.Sure, it’s
mostly her fault, because she doesn’t have to
give in to your needs — she could play the
hard-to-get-***** like the rest of them do, if
she really wanted to. But you and she both know
that she probably couldn’t pull it off. Maybe
she’s too short, or a little overweight, or has
a big birthmark on her forehead, or works at
Taco Bell, or just really not that type.
Whatever the reason somehow. Life has given her a
lot of really great qualities but has left out
the
ones that men want (or think they want) in a
woman. So she remains forever the funny friend…
the steadfast companion… the secret lover… and
you go on searching for your goddess who will
somehow be everything you ever wanted in a
woman.You’ll joke to her that she should be the
best man at your wedding, and she’ll laugh and
make a joke about a smelly rental tux.She
doesn’t captivate you with her beauty or open
doors with her smile. Mainly she blends in with
the crowd. She’s safe. She doesn’t want to be
the center of attention and turn the heads of
everyone in the room. But she wants to turn
someone’s head. She wants to be special to
someone too. We all do.She has feelings. She has
a heart. In fact, she probably has a bigger and
better heart than any woman you’ve ever known
because she’s had a front row seat to “The Mess
That Is Your Life”, and she likes you anyway.
She obviously sees something worthwhile and
redeeming in you because although you’ve given
her nothing, absolutely no reason to still be
around, she is…

Courage in the Workplace

Filed under: Main — melfabro @ 2:34 am

Chanced upon these in some sites, unfortunately I did not note down the source links…

Courage in the workplace means that reassessing the beliefs, behaviors, assumptions and control issues that keep organizations stuck in outdated modes of operation. It does not mean being heroic or brave to show the extraordinary capabilities or confronting the negativity with the egoistic reactions; rather it refers to the ability and willingness to confront fear, uncertainty, intimidation, or difficulty on the job by having in-depth knowledge of one’s belief, liberation, and insight.

Courage to try:
is the courage of action. It is the courage of initiative. TRY Courage requires you to exert energy in order to overcome inertia.
Certainly, it is easier not to do something than to do it, which is one reason why many people prefer to stay in their “comfort zones.”
It takes courage to TRY something, particularly when you’ve not done it before. This is the kind of courage that’s demonstrated when someone “steps up to the plate,” for example, taking on a project on which others have failed.

You experience your courage to try whenever you must attempt something for the very first time, as when you cross over a threshold that other people may have already crossed over.

The courage of try is associated with:

“Stepping up to the plate,” such as volunteering for a leadership role.
First attempts; for example, the first time you lead an important strategic initiative for the company.
Pioneering efforts, such as leading an initiative that your organization has never done before.
Taking action.

All courage buckets come with a risk, and the risk is what causes people to avoid behaving with courage. The risk associated with TRY Courage is that your courageous actions may harm you, and, perhaps more importantly, other people. If you act on the risk and wipe out, not only are you likely to be hurt, but you could also potentially harm those around you. It is the risk of harming yourself or others that most commonly causes people to avoid exercising their Courage to try.

Courage to trust:

involves resisting the temptation to control other people. Unlike TRY Courage, TRUST Courage is not about action. Instead it often involves inaction, or “letting go” of the need to control. With TRUST Courage, you step back and follow the lead of others. A common example of TRUST Courage is delegation. TRUST Courage is very hard for people who tend to be controlling and those who have been burned by trusting people in the past. TRUST Courage, though, is a crucial element in building strong bonds between people.

The courage of trust is associated with:

Releasing control, such as delegating a task without hovering over the person to whom you’ve delegated.
Following the lead of others, such as letting a direct report facilitate your meeting.
Presuming positive intentions and giving team members the benefit of the doubt.

TRUST Courage, of course, comes with a risk. The risk associated with TRUST Courage isn’t that you will harm other people, but that by trusting them, they might harm you. By trusting others, you open yourself up to the possibility of your trust being misused. Thus, many people, especially those who have been betrayed in the past, find offering people trust very difficult. For them, entrusting others is an act of courage.

Courage to tell
is the courage of voice. TELL Courage is what is needed to tell the truth, regardless of how difficult that truth may be for others to hear. It is the courage to not bite your tongue when you feel strongly about something. Brown-nosing and people pleasing are symptoms of low TELL Courage. TELL Courage requires independence of thought. We also use our TELL Courage when we take responsibility for a mistake or offer an apology. Whenever we speak up and say what’s hard to say, whether it be speaking truth to power, admitting a mistake, or saying “I’m sorry,” we are using TELL Courage.

The courage of TELL is associated with:

Speaking up and asserting yourself when you feel strongly about an issue.
Telling the truth, regardless of where the person to whom you are telling the truth resides in the organizational hierarchy, such as presenting an idea to your boss’s boss.
Using constructive confrontation, such as providing difficult feedback to a peer, direct report, or boss.
Admitting mistakes and saying, “I am sorry.”

TELL Courage can be scary and comes with risks too. We avoid using TELL Courage because we don’t want to offend others and fear being cast out of the group. The need for affiliation with those we work with is very strong, and the risk of TELL Courage is that, by speaking up and asserting ourselves, we will be cast out of the group and won’t “belong” anymore.

LIFE and LOVE explained…

Filed under: Main — rhycel @ 5:21 pm

Life is the process of finding love; every person will need to find four people in their life.

First person is you,

Second person is the one you love most,

Third person is the one who love you most,

And the fourth is the one you spend the rest of your life with…

In life, initially, you will meet the one you love most, and learn how love feels. Because you know how love feels, so you can find the person who loves YOU most. When you experienced the feeling of loving others and being loved, you will then know what it is you need most. Then you will find the person who is most suitable for you, to be able to spend the rest of your life with.

Sadly, in real life, these three people are usually not the same person.

The one you love most doesn’t love you.

The one, who love you most, is never the one you love most.

And the one you spend your life with, is never the one you love most or the one who love you most. He is just the person who happens to be at the right place at the right time.

Which person are you in other people’s life?

No person will purposely have a change of heart.

At the point in time when he loves you, he really loves you.

But when he doesn’t love you anymore, he really doesn’t love you anymore.

When he loves you, he cant pretend that he doesn’t.

Same goes, when he loves you no more, there’s no way he can pretend he loves you.

When a person doesn’t love you and wants to leave you, you must ask yourself if you still love him. If you also don’t love him anymore, do not keep him just to save your pride.

If you still love him, you should wish him happiness, and hope that he will be with the one he loves mot, not stop him from it.

If you stop him from finding true happiness with the one he loves, it shows you already don’t love him, and if you don’t love him, what rights do you have to blame him for a change of heart?

LOVE IS NOT POSSESSIVE.

If you like the moon, you cant just take it down and put it in your basin. But the moonlight still shines upon you.

In other words, when you love a person, you may use another method of possessing the person.

Let him become a permanent memory in your life.

If you really love a person, you must love him for what he is. Love him for his good points, and the bad. You can’t wish for him to become like what you like him to be just because you love him. If he can’t change to become what you like him to be, you don’t love him anymore.

When you really love a person, you cannot find a reason why you love him.

You only know that no matter when and where, good mood or bad, you will wish to have this person to be with you.

Real love is when two people can go through the toughest problems without asking for promises or listing criteria.

In a relationship, you have to put in effort and give in at times, not always be on the receiving end.

Being away form each other is a type of test. If the relationship isn’t strong, then you can only admit defeat.

Real love will never become hate. When two people are in love, they love to ask each other to swear, to make promises… Why do they ask each other to swear and promise? Because they don’t trust each other, they don’t trust their lover.

These swear and promises are useless:

“Till the sky falls, till the ocean dry, my love for you will never change!”

We all know that the sky will never fall; the ocean will never dry. Even if it does happen, are we still alive by then?

Be careful when making promises; don’t make promises that you cannot keep. Swear by things that can never happen, because it can never happen, so no harm just saying it casually. Remember, swearing by things that can never happen are the most touching?

In a relationship, what you say is one thing, but what you do is another;

The one saying doesn’t believe; the one listening also doesn’t believe.

“Just because someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to, doesn’t mean they don’t love you with all they have…”

Far Away – Nickleback

Filed under: Main — rhycel @ 10:55 am

This time, this place misused, mistakes
Too long, too late, who was I to make you wait?
Just one chance, just one breath
Just in case there’s just one left
‘Cause you know you know, you know

That I love you I have loved you all along and I miss you
Been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you’ll be with me and you’ll never go
Stop breathing if I don’t see you anymore

On my knees, I’ll ask last chance for one last dance
‘Cause with you, I’d withstand
All of hell to hold your hand
I’d give it all I’d give for us
Give anything, but I won’t give up
‘Cause you know you know, you know

That I love you I have loved you all along and I miss you
Been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you’ll be with me and you’ll never go
Stop breathing if I don’t see you anymore

So far away, so far away
Been far away for far too long
So far away, so far away
Been far away for far too long
But you know, you know, you know

I wanted, I wanted you to stay
‘Cause I needed, I need to hear you say
That I love you, I have loved you all along
And I forgive you, for being away for far too long
So keep breathing, ’cause I’m not leaving
Hold on to me and never let me go
Keep breathing, ’cause I’m not leaving you anymore

Believe it, hold on to me and
Never let me go, keep breathing
Hold on to me and never let me go (Keep breathing)
Hold on to me and never let me go

Collection of Thoughts

Filed under: Main — rhycel @ 2:21 pm

Anyone who has gone through the agony of losing someone she/he loves so much will still wish against all odds to have that love back again. But sometimes a love lost is a love gone forever. No amount of hope can bring back to life a relationship that just died a natural death.
Set your self free. Let your heart spread its wings and fly.
Remember, it may rain for 40 days and 40 nights, but still will not rain forever. One day the pouring will stop and there will be plenty of branches where you can find rest. One of these is where you will build your nest and start over again. It’s never too late. Remember, you may find love and lose it but…

“WHEN LOVE DIES, YOU NEVER HAVE TO DIE WITH IT.”

Remember, you cannot be a redeemer all your life. The
best way to weigh a relationship is out it in the test of fire. You
cannot be a sooner of your mistake forever.
Remember, we all fall and make wrong decisions but our blunders are meant not to bury us deep in misery but to teach us the valued lessons of life. Loving is always a learning process. With love, we learn how to care and sacrifice. We learn to share and reach out.

We learn to be UNSELFISH AND GIVE MORE THAN WE CAN.

And when everything doesn’t end well, we learn how it
feels like to fall and get hurt. But learning doesn’t have to end there. After our fall, we strive to get back on our feet and move on. This is where we learn that…

LIFE DOESN’T END WHERE OUR HEARTACHES BEGIN
THERE IS NO FUTURE IN A RELATIONSHIP OF LIES AND
SELFISHNESS.

It’s true, there is life in love. But, there can still
be life even after losing love if you leave the past behind and let your heart heal and give you the chance to find your self again. The success of a relationship lies not only in the beauty of its beginning but in its consistency. Make a choice not on impulse but a decision based on a healthy balance of mind and heart. Let us always remember that…

HAPPINESS IS NOT A MATTER OF DESTINY BUT A MATTER OF
CHOICE.

There comes a time in our lives when we chance upon
someone so nice and beautiful and we just find our selves getting so intensely attracted to that person. This feeling soon becomes a part of our everyday lives and eventually consumes our thoughts and actions.
The sad part of it is when we begin to realize that this person feels nothing more for us than friendship. We start our desperate attempt to get noticed and be closer but in the end our efforts are still unrewarded and we end up being sorry for ourselves.

“YOU DON’T HAVE TO FORGET SOMEONE YOU LOVE.
WHAT YOU NEED TO LEARN IS HOW TO ACCEPT THE VERDICT OF REALITY WITHOUT BEING BITTER OR SORRY FOR YOURSELF.
YOU WOULD BE BETTER OFF GIVING THAT THE DEDICATION AND LOVE TO SOMEONE MORE DESERVING.”

Don’t let your heart run your life, be sensible and let
your mind speak for itself. Listen not only to your feelings but to reason as well. Always remember that if you lose someone today, it means that someone better is coming tomorrow.

IF YOU LOSE LOVE, THAT DOESN’T MEAN THAT YOU HAVE FAILED
IN LOVE. CRY IF YOU HAVE TO, BUT MAKE SURE THAT TEARS WASH AWAY THE HURT AND THE BITTERNESS THAT
THE PAST LEFT YOU WITH. LET GO OF YESTERDAY AND LOVE
WILL FIND ITS WAY BACK TO YOU.

And when it does, pray that it may be the love that
will stay and last a lifetime. A woman on the rebound could easily fall for sweeping emotions and be made to falsely believe that she finally stumbled upon the right man when what she just found is only someone to cover up for the love she lost. A man who makes a promise with words and not with actions may never live up to fulfill them.

ITS TRUE THAT LOVE CAN WAIT FOREVER
BUT IT IS CRAZY TO STUBBORNLY HOPE FOR SOMEONE
WHO DOESN’T EVEN CARE OR UNDERSTAND HOW WE FEEL.

Love makes us see things through rose-colored glasses. Most of the time, we fail to recognize the danger sign that light up along our way. This feeling you have nurtured for so long isn’t healthy anymore. You must realize that you have to let go now before it consumes you and your sanity. There is always a time to think and stop. A time to be sensible and not allow our hearts to rule over our heads.

I DESERVE TO BE HAPPY NOT IN THE ARMS OF A MAN WHO
KEEPS ME WAITING BUT IN THE ARMS OF SOMEONE WHO WILL TAKE ME NOW AND LOVE ME FOREVER.

If loving a person who attached to someone else is a
crime, then maybe many of us would have been jailed long before we realize what its consequences could have been.
Loving someone is never a sin. It is what people do
out of love that sometimes makes it all wrong. The selfish desire to want that person is what makes it a sin.

DON’T THINK ONLY OF YOUR FEELINGS, FOR REAL LOVE
DOESN’T HAVE A PLACE FOR SELFISH PEOPLE.

When there is love, there is always sacrifice.
When we love someone, we never easily give up on that
person. Even if we get hurt badly we always try to find a way to ease the pain and learn to understand and forgive.
Loving too much doesn’t hurt. It is when we expect this love to be reciprocated that we begin to seek approval and acceptance of the things we have done and when we are taken for granted and rejected, we curse the very same love that we once freely and happily offered.

DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME WAITING FOR SOMEONE WHO NEVER
REALLY CARED ABOUT HOW YOU WOULD HAVE FELT. OPEN YOUR HEART AGAIN AND GIVE YOURSELF THE CHANCE TO FIND THE MAN WHO WOULD MAKE LOVING WORTH THE PAIN AND THE SACRIFICE.

Just like anything else, our love grows weak and dies
if not taken cared of. It can keep up with pain only to a certain
extent. Beyond that, it withers without any hope of recovery and soon dies.

GOD WAKES US UP IN THE MIDST OF A STORM TO TEACH US A LESSON. HE TAKES AWAY PEOPLE WE LOVE, SO WE CAN LEARN TO VALUE LOVE ITSELF. HE MAKES US CRY SO HARD SO WE CAN SEE CLEARLY WHEN WE OPEN OUR EYES. HE MAKES US BITTER SO WE CAN REALIZE THAT THERE IS NO GENUINE HAPPINESS IF WE THINK ONLY OF OUR NEEDS AND NOT OF OTHERS?

Relationships built on jealousy and selfishness are doomed from the very beginning. The hardest part of losing love is letting go and moving on. Most of us cry endlessly over things that could
have been but never will be.
God allows us to experience pain to make us stronger and better persons. He will see us through the most trying and difficult times in our lives and only if we put our trust in Him can we learn to find joy in our tears and happiness in our sorrows.
In many failed relationships, separation comes as the
inevitable choice but moving on always proves to be twice as difficult as letting go. Sometimes, the end of a relationship is imposed on us, but our choice to hold on is always beyond the control of circumstance.
Letting go is a decision that can never be dictated on us. It is
a resolve we make ourselves. Acceptance is the key to a new beginning and Time is the healer of all wounds. Even if the storm casts its fearful shadow, there will always be light after our darkest and loneliest moments. There is always a hope for those who believe. There is always a chance for those who try.

LOSING SOMEONE WE LOVE MAY NOT BE A LOSS AT ALL
BUT A BLESSING BECAUSE SOMEONE EVEN MORE DESERVING IS
YET TO COME.

There is nothing wrong in expressing our feelings to someone we love, but…

WE MUST ALWAYS BE SENSITIVE TO THE SIGNALS THAT TELL
US WHEN TO RATIONALIZE AND BE SENSIBLE.

There comes a time in our lives when we would fall for
someone who wouldn’t be as interested as we are because his
attention is focused on someone else. There are many times when we love but don’t get loved in return.

THERE ARE TIMES WHEN THE SIGN AHEAD SAYS STOP BUT WE
STILL STUBBORNLY HEAD ON.

We would say our love is unconditional. But if it really is, then we
should never feel bad. But why do we get frustrated when love turns sour? Because we still subconsciously seek acceptance and assurance from the people we care about.

“BEING IN LOVE CAN BE THE MOST WONDERFUL THING WE
COULD EXPERIENCE BUT IF THE FEELING BEGINS TO CONSUME OUR WHOLE BEINGS, THEN WE HAVE TO STOP AND LET OUR MINDS AND NOT OUR HEARTS DICTATE OUR ACTIONS. ONLY WHEN WE LEARN TO ACCEPT OUR FATE AND UNDERSTAND THE MEANING OF OUR FAILURES CAN WE TRULY GO ON WITH LIFE WITHOUT HAVING TO LOOK BACK AND CRY OVER THE THINGS THAT COULD HAVE BEEN BUT WILL NEVER BE…”

When Mr Right comes at the wrong time – Janice Wong

Filed under: Main — rhycel @ 2:26 pm

“Life is a series of pulls back and forth. You want to do one thing, but you are bound to do something else. Something hurts you, yet you know it shouldn’t. You take certain things for granted, even when you know you should never take any thing for granted. ”
“A tension of opposites, like a pull on a rubber band. And most of us live somewhere in the middle.”
“A wrestling match.”
“which side wins?”
“Love wins. Love always wins.”
– Morrie Schwartz

A real life experience taken from a news article, posted by saving bond and reposted here………cos lot of relationships are caught in-between this tension of opposites………..
————————————————-
When Mr Right comes at the wrong time
Timing is everything, even in love. And when you are not ready to commit, you could end up regretting it

By Janice Wong

SOMETIMES, timing rather than love decides who we end up being with – or without.

Only some lucky people marry the loves of their lives. The rest marry the most suitable person who comes along when they are ready to settle down.

A friend in his 20s came to this conclusion after confiding in me that he had recently met a woman who is more attractive than his wife, and so occupies his thoughts more often than his wife does.

‘If only I had met her before I got married,’ he said wistfully.
But I think even if the love of one’s life appears when one is single, one may not be in the right frame of mind to recognise him or her as such. And then love passes by.

Life is littered with near misses and lost opportunities.
I attended my ex-boyfriend’s wedding last month, which triggered many memories.

We met five years ago when I was 23 and he 31. It was love at first sight. He had an established career, was down-to-earth and steadfastly religious. I was then working as an air stewardess and my head was – literally and metaphorically – in the clouds.

I was also – well, let’s put it this way – not religious.
Despite our differences, we were soulmates. We had the same quirky sense of humour and shared long, intense overnight conversations.

But human nature is perverse. When someone is excessively nice to us, we start taking things for granted, instead of appreciating them even more. My ex sent me to the airport, fixed my PC, reminded me to take health supplements – and go to church.

He had everything I could want in a husband – except that I was not looking for one. A boyfriend was all I could cope with then.
I loved fast cars, danced wildly at Zouk and took off on shopping holidays at a whim. My life revolved around I, me and myself.

In the six months that we were together, he popped the question several times and talked ad nauseam about having children. He wanted us to enrol for a Christian marriage preparation course.

Yes, I did often fantasise about a Vera Wang wedding gown, but I was at that stage of my life when I was more interested in Guess than Baby Guess.

And where – dare I admit it? – I still wanted to meet other men.
So I was a 23-year-old with the emotional maturity of a 13-year-old.

Responsibility? Wasn’t that for adults?

In short, I met Mr Right at the wrong time.

The more he talked about marriage and religion, the more I felt pressured and the more pressured I felt, the more irritable I became.

I was too impatient to compromise. Every trivial matter blew up as a big deal. My mood obliterated the good in our relationship and reached a point where I just wanted out.

He was heartbroken; I was sad but relieved. He still called me regularly, beseeching me to change my mind.The calls stopped finally after a year. Now and then, we say ‘Hi’ via e-mail.
I had a few painful relationships after that. Served me right, as those rude wake-up calls were necessary for me to realise the meaninglessness of my hedonistic high life. I missed the tenderness of my ex and began having second thoughts.

Perhaps I also felt more urgency to find someone marriageable before my biological clock reached zero hour. It dawned on me that I am not a pixie like Peter Pan who can flirt around forever. One day, I’d wake up sick and alone when my fair weather friends flit away.

But I was too proud and too unsure of my ex’s reaction to call him until last year. The first thing he told me excitedly was that he had found The One. My heart tumbled to my feet. So, that’s Fate.
If only I could turn back time. If only I had met him later. If only… what feeble words.

These days, I am more circumspect. I have come to terms with my loss. There is nothing I can do about timing, but I can do everything about my choices.

Sometimes, when the nights get lonely, I toy with the idea of marrying a platonic friend of mine, who often assures me earnestly that, if the worst comes to the worst, he’d be willing to marry me.

But I always dismiss that. I have already made one mistake. I should not make another by settling for second best merely for the sake of getting hitched – only to regret it soon after, as the guy who confided in me did.

Hopefully, the best is not over but yet to be.

Just Take My Heart – Mr. Big

Filed under: Main — rhycel @ 11:09 am

It’s late at night and neither one of us is sleeping
I can’t imagine living my life after you’re gone
Wondering why so many questions have no answers
I keep on searching for the reason why we went wrong

Where is our yesterday
You and I could use it right now
But if this is goodbye

Just take my heart when you go
I don’t have the need for it anymore
I’ll always love you, but you’re too hard to hold
Just take my heart when you go

Here we are about to take the final step now
I just can’t fool myself, I know there’s no turning back
Face to face it’s been an endless conversation
But when the love is gone you’re left with nothing but talk

I’d give my everything
If only I could turn you around
But if this is goodbye

Just take my heart when you go
I don’t have the need for it anymore
I’ll always love you, but you’re too hard to hold
Just take my heart when you go

Ngayon ang puso ko ay sawi
Kay simple lang ng aking hiling
Na madama mo rin ang pait at pighati…

Sana’y magmilagro
Mabalik ko
Mali ay mai-diretso
‘Pinagdarasal ko
Sa ‘king puso
Na mabura ka sa isip ko…

Meantime Guy

He’s the one that drunk dials you late at night saying that he loves you over and over again until 3 in the morning. He means it but you know too well he’ll never admit it. He’s the one that makes it seem alright that your jerk boyfriend is cheating on you. He’s the one you love but not really “in” love with. You know the one who’s just there in the meantime.

He’s the one you were with on that night you swore never happened.

He’s just chill, doesn’t pressure you with commitment. He doesn’t make a fuss when you go out to party with your girlfriends. And when you get piss drunk, he’s there to drive you home and hold your hair when you vomit.

You don’t have to pretend that you’re cool because he knows how much of a dork you really are.

You don’t have to be made up and all poised around him because you know that he’d hang out with you even if you had the flu and you spent 3 days in the same pair of pajamas being smelly and unbathed with snot spewing from your swollen nose. Which he actually did while also bringing you DVDs and KFC.

It doesn’t bother you that he goes out with other girls or at least you pretend that it doesn’t. Yet you do, however, manage to point out every single flaw she has and how she’s not the right girl for him. And when he asks you who would be right for him you’d describe a girl pretty muchl like yourself but you’d never imply that it might be you.

You tell him that he’s a great guy and that he’d make some girl really happy someday just like how you pretend to be happy with your cheating ass jerk boyfriend.

And when you finally break up, he’d cancel a hot date just to be there to soak up your tears and listen to you rant about how stupid you are. To which he would agree but at the same time making you feel like it was alright to be stupid sometimes. He’d stay with you until the sun rises and until your tears dry up. He’d stay and keep you company everyday bringing you all sorts of food just to help you cope with your heart ache. And he would not care if you had gained weight or that you’ve lost all reason to shave your legs.

He’d be the first one to comment on the hundred emo notes you post on facebook just so you know someone had read them and that you’d feel that someone cared.

He’ll be there through all your unwarranted drama.

He’ll be there until you get over your jerk ex-boyfriend.

And when you finally do, he’d still be there until you find another jerk boyfriend to make you pretend to be happy.

You’re not exactly sure about how he feels about you because he never does or says anything clear. So you stay with your new jerk boyfriend. You go on with your life convincing yourself that you are the lucky one and that you are better off and happy.

But then late at night. When you know you should be sleeping.

You find yourself staying awake until 3 in the morning waiting for his call just to hear him drunkenly say that he loves you.

Oh I’m sorry, girl, for causing you much pain
Didn’t mean to make you cry, make your efforts all in vain

And I apologize for all the things I’ve done
You were loving me so much but all I did was let you down

Oh, I really don’t know, just what to say
All I know is that I want you to stay

This time, I’m not gonna let you slip away
This time, I’m not gonna let another day go by
Without holding you so tight
Without treating you so right
This time, I’m not gonna let go of your love
This time, I promise you that we’ll rise above it all

And I will never let you fall
I’m gonna give you my all, this time

Oh, I never thought that I was hurting you
Now I know that I was wrong, now I know just what to do

Gonna try to be the best that I could be
All I need is one more chance to make it up to you, you’ll see

And there’s one more thing that you oughta know
All I know is that I don’t want you to go

I’ll Never Love Again – Lady Gaga (A Star Is Born)

Filed under: Main — rhycel @ 3:42 pm

Wish I could, I could’ve said goodbye

I would’ve said what I wanted to

Maybe even cried for you

If I knew it would be the last time

I would’ve broke my heart in two

Tryin’ to save a part of you

Don’t wanna feel another touch

Don’t wanna start another fire

Don’t wanna know another kiss

No other name falling off my lips

Don’t wanna give my heart away

To another stranger

Or let another day begin

Won’t even let the sunlight in

No, I’ll never love again

I’ll never love again, oh, oh, oh, oh

When we first met

I never thought that I would fall

I never thought that I’d find myself

Lying in your arms

And I want to pretend that it’s not true

Oh baby, that you’re gone

‘Cause my world keeps turning, and turning, and turning

And I’m not moving on

Don’t wanna feel another touch

Don’t wanna start another fire

Don’t wanna know another kiss

No other name falling off my lips

Don’t wanna give my heart away

To another stranger

Or let another day begin

Won’t even let the sunlight in

No, I’ll never love

I don’t wanna know this feeling

Unless it’s you and me

I don’t wanna waste a moment, ooh

And I don’t wanna give somebody else the better part of me

I would rather wait for you, ooh

Don’t wanna feel another touch

Don’t wanna start another fire

Don’t wanna know another kiss

Baby, unless they are your lips

Don’t wanna give my heart away

To another stranger

Don’t let another day begin

Won’t let the sunlight in

Oh, I’ll never love again

Never love again

Never love again

Oh, I’ll never love again

When I was you Man – Bruno Mars

Filed under: Main — rhycel @ 2:41 pm
Same bed but it feels just a little bit bigger now
Our song on the radio but it don’t sound the same
When our friends talk about you, all it does is just tear me down
‘Cause my heart breaks a little when I hear your name
It all just sounds like ooh, ooh ooh hoo hoo
Mm, too young, too dumb to realize
That I should have bought you flowers
And held your hand
Should have gave you all my hours
When I had the chance
Take you to every party ’cause all you wanted to do was dance
Now my baby’s dancing
But she’s dancing with another man
My pride, my ego, my needs, and my selfish ways
Caused a good strong woman like you to walk out my life
Now I never, never get to clean up the mess I made, oh
And it haunts me every time I close my eyes
It all
It all just sounds like ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh
Mm, too young, too dumb to realize
That I should have bought you flowers
And held your hand
Should have gave you all my hours
When I had the chance
Take you to every party ’cause all you wanted to do was dance
Now my baby’s dancing
But she’s dancing with another man
Although it hurts
I’ll be the first to say that I was wrong
Oh, I know I’m probably much too late
To try and apologize for my mistakes
But I just want you to know
I hope he buys you flowers
I hope he holds your hand
Give you all his hours
When he has the chance
Take you to every party
‘Cause I remember how much you loved to dance
Do all the things I should have done
When I was your man
Do all the things I should have done
When I was your man
