If you have people in your life that cause you doubt yourself, how do you cope with them? Currently I don’t have a person in my life who’s like that, but in the past times when I have, I would attack the problem by the root. See, most times when people act like that they either think you’re partially cool,(and/or) they might be longing for a friendship with you or the life you have, or they’ve had some situations in their lives that put them in the place where they’re putting you. Obviously not everyone is like that, but no matter who you are and no matter what background you’re from…You’ll always need someone to love you. And that’s where my mind-set is. I’m not perfect so I slip up a lot, but I try to see people how God sees them, and He sees them with love. I don’t know the person’s whole story, so I have no right to judge them or to try to form my own opinion of who they are, based on what I’ve seen. So in short: I don’t allow people to cause myself to doubt who I am, because I know who I am, and I know that I was created to be me, and no one will ever change that. That one factor is the reason why those types of problems don’t arise too often for me, and I thank God for showing me that =]
What is the difference between Like and Love? I see the words “like” and “love” used out of context sooooooooo much, and sometimes I stop and really think about what they both mean and why they’re two different words if people keep inter-mixing their meanings in their sentences. For example, if pizza is my favorite food I don’t LOVE it, I like it. Like can be used to express a fondness towards something and can also be used to express a fondness towards someone, but not to the extent of loving that person (but just to clarify, we are technically called to love everyone).
Love is an emotion that is triggered due to a deeper fondness towards someone or a certain relationship (not specifically intended just for your husband, wife, BF, or GF, but also for family and friends).So if love is a relationship that you hold priceless, you can’t really have a relationship with pizza UNLESS it has extra cheese (might be kidding…Might not be) In short: Love = a relationship Like = a fondness towards something or someone that isn’t necessarily as extreme as love.
SO! The next time you hear elementary kids asking each other if they “like like” him or just like him…Tell them to act their age and get over it because little Jimmy obviously isn’t in love with them (Just kidding. He totally loves you), AND tell them to get their words in order, because “like like” isn’t a thing unless you read between the lines and figure out in middle school, that “like like” means *gasp* love (mind blowing, I know). Even though I’m being frivolously sarcastic at the moment =P, that’s pretty much the just of it all other than the fact that I’m not universally against using the word love in a situation that doesn’t involve an individual…Just against it when it’s used in the majority of the sentences used today *nods*
How much the word ‘I Love You” is important to you?
When someone tells me that they love me, it means a lot to me, and I think that in most relationships (especially between a husband and his wife) it’s very important to say those words, because let’s be honest now…You don’t want this
happening every morning. Now in the case of your friends, you don’t have to tell them you love them A LOT, but sometimes there are times when it’s more appropriate than others, and also bear in mind that there will always be those situations where they’ll need to be reminded. But on a more individual note, a hug can say I love you just as much as telling someone the like.
What makes you happy? When I’m able to hang out with a group of people who are encouraging and fun, and when I get an A+ on whatever test I’ve done ^_^
What aspect of blogging do you love the most? Well, I really like that I’m able to share my thoughts and the things that I’m really passionate about, with other individuals, who share my passion for poetry.
What do you feel is the most important takeaway for your readers (from your blog)? Probably the fact that they’re perfect just the way they are, and that they don’t need to change anything about themselves to feel accepted. The majority of my poems reflect that fact, so I’m hoping that the individuals that read them will feel inspired to be themselves.
What’s your favourite hobby (aside from blogging!)? Expressing my creativity through the arts.
Nowadays, do you still believe in Destiny? No and yes. Sometimes this type of thing can be confusing to think about, so I shall do my best to explain. I believe that God has a plan for my life, but I also believe that I do the choice making. That’s where it gets confusing: I have a plan for my life, yet the choices I make create that life that is technically already planned according to the choices I make, which may still have to be made in the days to come. So, to sum up that mumbo jumbo: My future is what I choose to create it to be, and I’m not destined to do one thing or the other, because in the end…It’s all up to me.
Who is God for you?
God is my loving father and friend. He is my Lord whom I serve and love. The word love was used, because I have a relationship with Him, and He’s not just a thought of some guy in the sky who stops us from doing what we want. He’s a real person to me, and I know that I’m always being looked out for, and I also know that I don’t need to worry about anything, because He’s got my back 24/7
How do you handle a stressful day?
Depending on the level of stress, I might cry a little or write poetry to get all the emotions out more efficiently. Don’t get me wrong…Crying is very important, but sometimes we need to work on letting go of the thing that’s causing the tears and take the step to overcome whatever is causing our stress.
