Learning a new language opens up doors to a new perspective. Recently I spoke with a friend who taught me how to express myself using Future tenses in Spanish. It was bloody, I was struggling. And I like it because I know I’m on the growth process. And so overwhelmed to learn new words. Thinking […]7 Things that I learned while practicing my third language
I’m not tired of being silent but I’m just tired of keeping things on my mind. Now the words transpired as if I knew I will regret this post but anyways someone from quora ask about it and I’m kinda have to asses myself if there would be times that I have had done it or to place myself on a higher ground above others.
So just to keep things real and fair yeah I have said something to elevate myself before It’s the most uncomfortable and awkward feeling so I didn’t do it again. My purpose back then was to gain someone’s trust but i failed to do so because they found out I’m not really that skillfull , It was a job interview btw.
so going back to the topic
Why do People keep boasting about themselves a lot ?
It keeps me uncomfortable to be honest but I just want clarity of mind all the time so I keep things cool , if people want to boast to blab blab blab , I don’t care , I’m not really threatened I let people do whatever they want to do ,and say things they want to , unless they cross over the line , my bounderies that’s where the chaos begin.
I’m not the type of person that I will explain myself (not blunt about it).
But right now I’m doing this not because I want to do it but I have to express this unruling thoughts.
From my own point of view.
I think sometimes it is not necessary to say thinks about yourself especially if it does not help others .You will just appear like a boaster. Unless someone ask about how you do things or how can you cope with life.
Well there’s nothing wrong about telling someone about you.But to brag about yourself even if someone’s not asking about it might sound a bit off to me.
I live with these few principles ” If someone is interested about it, they will ask about it.
You don’t need to shed layers of yourself and tell everyone how good are you to win someone’s approval. Because sometimes people doesn’t care and they don’t need it and that’s a waste of time.
If you want to be loved words are not enough. That’s what some politicians do. They just brag.
If you want to win somebodyelse’s attention , Show it by action.
Actions speak louder than words. Being there for someone to care and support or just be a good shoulder to cry on would be enough way to show them who you really are.
So why ? Why people boast about themselves a lot?
They want power over you -They needed that attention -For the love of ego & ofcourse “Narcicism” –
Ever asking why things seems so hard for you to go through ? And while for other it’s like effortlessly flowing perfectly.
Like you often questioning how life is unfair , you prayed hard you fought hard , you sacrificed a lot but in the end; things are slipping out from your grasp.
Indeed as what the scripture says Life is unfair ;
John 16 :33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
He did not state ,” Hey My child You can make it on yourself !,
He said Take heart ! , Have faith ! Look what I’m gonna do ..
Jesus clearly states believe on what He can do for you . And He overcome everything with His mighty strength.
Hey , He’s not done yet
There is always a process for growth. Trust God in the process
It’s not easy you need to accept that it is not easy for you but for God with a snap of a finger He will give it to you.
No . He’s not making it difficult for you . He is teaching you to have faith and trust Him. He wants you to discover His strength through you.
If we look only on our own strength and ability, It’s not enough.
God wants you to discover Him on things you can’t do by yourself.
Heavy loads are for those who have strong backs.
Things seems hard for you because you are looking on on your own capabilities which is clearly opposite to what the scriptures says.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
He carried us on His cross the weight of ALL the problems and pains that we gone through and will be going through life has already been lifted.
Pray for strength if your faith is tested. If things aren’t going on your way.
It might be going on the other way and let it go to God’s way.
He is teaching you and shaping your character
Romans 8: 28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose.
God is processing you for His Purpose. He let’s you go through what you are going through so you will exercise your faith and will gain a lot from this experience.
There must be something He’s up for you 🙂
As the process goes He is definitely shaping our character for a purpose.
Our patience , perseverance , there is always something that we gain after hard trials on our life .It’s lessons , wisdom , ability, talent ,hope, faith, a good testimony to empower and bless others . Things that might not be visible but it’s within us and will remain in us in a course of time .
We are forged for a purpose
Zechariah 13:9 And I will put this third into the fire, and refine them as one refines silver, and test them as gold is tested. They will call upon my name, and I will answer them. I will say, ‘They are my people’; and they will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’”
I saw my dad forging an ax so he can use it to cut logs in the backyard.
I saw him working hard hammering the metal shaping it forging it on the open flame. That metal is not easy to bend but he continuously blow his hammer to make the sharp edge of the axe be honed .
And I saw How happy he is after he tested the ax on some logs and I remember he always use that ax.
We might be facing a stressful situation but remember that the metal getting forged in the fire , hammered with a lot of friction and shaped and sharpened to cut large woods.
This metal finally found it’s purpose from a piece of scrap to a cutting tool .
The stresses and problems we have in life is our training ground to God’s purpose in our life.
Finally , I hope this will help you my friend on what you are going through now.
I pray that you will get through with it with Jesus 🙂
Hey It’s me ,” said boredom. Oh come on! chill, look for mind stimulating things around you. A Sudoku puzzle, a cup of cold coffee. And I got a pen which is hiding between the pages 78 and 79 with the unfinished puzzle 139. Tapping the pen till it became a familiar beat of a Morse Code rhyme.
Space number one — thinking of things that could contribute to my ever wondering curiosity. This spaces are either blank or a nonsensical thought product of uncommon glance in the ceiling like I am looking for something but actually I’m not .
Space number two it’s an option If i haven’t filled out space number one , then there’s no space #2. It’s likely spaces are created between words to understand it pretty well. But spaces do create an impression that you have no clue what comes after a word. Because in the first place you can’t explain the thought of the things that you want to write about.
Metaphorically speaking about a thought that comes after a thought. There’s a lot of Ideas going round and round my unstable mind.
I’m more preoccupied by what I am going to think about than things that I should be thinking about.
Here I am , The struggle is real..
Seems like life is a continues loop of events that so overwhelming. I always have this feeling of going back to zero and start all over again my strength was renewed but I can’t seem to carry my armor to go out. My scars remind me of the battles the endless fight to be better. The bloody war against myself is not finished yet. I fight the urges to get back to the old me again.
I lose track of my goals and my why’s I can hardly say that it’s good to purposely live and wait what life can offer you just because you are existing.
