If grades were based on passivity, I would be on top of the class. I have been told that I’m ‘too nice’ for my own good countless of times in the past, and when I look back at those years I realize that I only succumbed to what others wanted because I needed to avoid one thing - conflict. I am a very non confrontational person and I try to avoid conflicts at all costs, but since no two people see the world in exactly the same way, eventually something will come up and you’ll have no choice but to face whatever the world throws at you. I do not avoid conflicts because I am afraid of the confrontation per se (because I believe it’s important to resolve issues as soon as they happen) It is just that I have this bad habit of saying things I do not mean whenever the situation gets heated up, and I end up hurting myself and others with the repercussions that stemmed from my actions. Some things you just have to let go, I guess, lest you want to lose people in the process. It’s just a matter of deciding which battles are better left alone from those that are worth fighting for.
It may not always be conventional to mix wolves, spikes, floral prints and different shades of denim, but that is the beauty of conflict. After all the damage, things always, always work out in the end. This too shall pass.
How was your day today? I hope you had a good one! Thank you so much for dropping by! :)

I remember the time when I told a friend to stop being so hard on himself, especially since he can’t see himself the way I see him. Fast forward to now, I realized how fast karma worked because before you knew it, I started saying the exact same thing again, only this time, to myself. It may not be obvious, but I have always been a person of many insecurities, from the physical down to the emotional. Don’t get me wrong though. I don’t wallow in self pity, because if there’s anything I hate more than cold pizza or soggy fries, it is the presence of false modesty. I know what I am capable of, and I know how others see me, its just that sometimes I forget and over criticize myself and end up getting upset over something I shouldn’t be.
I’ve never worn tights with an outfit before but since it’s been raining like crazy lately, I decided to give it a try. Don’t you just love the tiny heart details? I do! Its girly but not overly so, which I’m really happy about since we all know that I will never be that girly girl. I know this outfit is pretty dark, but I’d like to believe I just dressed up this way to match the gloomy weather (and okay, maybe my gloomy mood also) I’m not exactly a ray of sunshine right now but being the optimistic person that I am, I know this too shall pass. Anyway, I’m currently packing stuff for our trip tomorrow. Summer break started really late for me (ah, the not so perks of being a student nurse!) but that’s okay. It’s better late than never, right?
I hope you all had a great day today! Thank you so much for dropping by! :)
