That Kind of Girl
You know it is real when everyone around you keeps telling you, "you look much happier now". Happier? I don't think so; one can never get happier once she set foot on the sad sack - she only gets older. Well, I always say it as a joke, but I think it's only because I am much more confident than ever. I am absolutely speed-growing on the rail of self-sufficient; knowing when to call it and make a change when things are not going the right direction. I certainly know how to treat people with respect and appreciate things that come in every encounter. I definitely try to live properly and substantially because I understand how precious l am, and there is no time to waste in this fleeting moment of life.
I've met a person who reassured me that it's okay to be me. I knew all of that but I wasn't never fully understood as an individual; thus occurred a overwhelming amount of doubts. This person truly, madly, and deeply accept me as who I am, how I am, and what I can become. He made me realize that I have so much possibilities lie within me. "Thank you for being so genuine and honest as you are since the beginning", he once told me.
Each day get by I move on a little. One relationship after another must have led me knowing how to dispense love at this point of my life. I cannot be fearless no more. I never need to chase after relationships no more. Because I've practiced to value myself over the other person - my own pace of living, loving, and giving - what I can offer is obvious and certain. I have detached myself from relationships but join it lightheartedly when it comes to me at the right timing, with someone I can endure and love.
No I am not being blindly romantic, I am simply a tiny girl with the biggest attitude who will always choose to love, who would not hold back. I am only willing to believe that there is a promise land in each single person and that should be the core of us. If you understand the value of yourself, you can be your very own 100%. Never be a 50% and seek for another 50%; BE 100%, so you'll be able to attract another 100%. Together, you make 200% - you bring each other to the fullest. I am just that kind of girl.
