lesson from past

anonymous asked:

One lesson you learned from your past relationship?

that no matter how much you try, you can never get anyone to appreciate your efforts to make them happy. If they don’t value you today, don’t expect them to tomorrow.

Listen, I was in a year long relationship with a woman. When I told her I might take a course in Psychology at college, she laughed at me and said I should find a different course. When I said I was going to be a cop, she pretty much called me a “killer”. She apologized to me ONCE in our entire relationship, and for every fight, I had to be the bigger person and admit to my “"mistakes”“. We fought every. fucking. second. I made sure to understand that she’s got mental illness, but she never understood mine. As soon as we broke up, she’s dating a guy, but she’s still apparently "lesbian” so obviously shes using him.

Now, I’m in a relationship with another woman. When I told her I might take a Psych course in college, she gave me advice that maybe what suits me more is Sociology or Criminology. When I told her I wanted to be a cop, she told me “follow your dreams but make sure to always stay humble and always be kind” and that I was going to be a hero. She has apologized to me because she thought she hurt my feelings, and we both agree that even though we are right in an argument, it is always good to apologize. “Fights should be about learning your difference and moving through them; not changing one’s character just to make up”. She accepted my mental illness, and she is constantly asking questions about it. She hates rebounds and believes that emotions should be processed thoroughly before moving on.

Now… I need you to look at this and think about Kar*mel and Supercorp.

Do you get it now?

My heart is still married to all of the things I’ve been convinced I’d forgotten.
—  Destroy it all. Deuteronomy 7. 🖤
When I was around 5 I used those those big Lego blocks. I would create giant walls and cascading towers. I can still picture it. I remember how long they took hours to build. I think it was the first time the world taught me one of its heart breaking lessons. You see, once they were built I would knock them down. I didn’t do it because I was a kid. I didn’t build it because I was bored. I didn’t destroy it because I was a 5 year old boy. I did it because I was fascinated – and devastated of how you could put so much effort and time into something and have it go from something to nothing in a blink of an eye. I was 5 and the world already had me breaking my own heart. I was 5 and the world had me learning a lesson I would never forget.

Can we get a little bit of appreciation for blaze?

Flame cat? Sure thing!

I think one of my favorite aspects about Blaze is that while she is the equivalent of Sonic in the Sol dimension she is still unique. While I love that Sonic is a positive hog, and he has an easy time making friends wherever he goes, I am still really glad that we have a character like Blaze who does not have an easy time making friends. 

It is great that in Sonic Rush the lesson that Blaze learnt was friendship. Trust and opening up to others is definitely not an easy thing, especially when you (in this case, Blaze) have been bullied growing up, but if you can give people a chance you just might make a true friend who will always be there for you and help you see the best in yourself.

i couldn’t pick just one favorite quote, so i decided to make a post with my top 5 favorite quotes!  

1. everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. be kind, always. 

we are quick to jump to conclusions, and say harsh words we don’t mean. keeping this in mind helps me remember that you never know what someone could be going through, and to be gentle.

2. when thinking about life, remember this: no amount of guilt can change the past, and no amount of anxiety can change the future. 

what has happened has happened, and this quote has helped me learn lessons from my past and move forward. as i am also prone to overthinking, this helps me realize that i shouldn’t worry so much about what will happen.

3. there are 3 rules in life: 1. if you do not go after what you want, you will never have it. 2. if you do not ask, the answer will always be no. 3. if you do not step forward, you will always remain in the same place.

pretty self-explanatory. i like the logicalness of these rules, and how simple they are, yet profound. i remember these whenever i am hesitating or unsure, when i am worried about something, or when i cannot give something my all. 

4. you have to continue to work even when you’re not being praised. you have to dig deep and go the extra mile because breakthroughs don’t happen when you do the bare minimum. it has to come from you and be for you. it all comes down to you.

it is hard to keep going when everything feels pointless. why should i keep working hard? no one even notices or recognizes my efforts. what is the point in reaching for excellence? will this even benefit me in the end? whenever i get like this, this quote reminds me of the answers to these questions. 

5.  motivation is what gets you started. habit is what keeps you going.

motivation, that lets-do-this!! attitude only lasts for so long. simple motivation is not enough to power you through everything. discipline and habit will keep you on you path, even when you can’t bring yourself to.

these quotes have really helped me when i was struggling, and i hope they can do that for you too!

How does it feel when she’s single for a long time.

1. If she’ll be in a relationship again, she wants that to be for a long time commitment.
2. She won’t be easy. It’s like you will be taming a wild beast.
3. She’ll look for efforts not promises.
4. It takes an awesome guy to convince her that she wants someone in her life.
5. Don’t deprive her to see her friends. They’re there during her lowest point.
6. She doesn’t like flirting. No time for playing games.
7. She will not assume unless you say your intentions to her.
8. She already learned lessons from the past, she’ll leave if she needs to.
9. She’s strong and independent. Her happiness will not solely revolve around you.
10. She has a long term goal for herself, don’t deprive her of attaining that.

I once looked up Jungkook's Natal Chart and that boy has a handful of planet in retrograde!! I was shocked! His soul must have been very ambitious trying to take on those lessons from his past life. Woah.

he has about 5-6 right? pretty crazy. i think that’s why he behaves a bit like an “old soul”, as some would say. despite his antics, he’s very mature (physically and mentally) and has been through things most people his age normally never experience

Gaatus

An adventurous Ta-Matoran sent to Karzahni following a severe rock climbing injury. To this day he remains a wandering backpacker unwilling to learn a lesson from his tragic past. 

For many years he enjoyed scouting the coastal plains of the Southern Continent only to eventually settle on Voya Nui with the rest of his ‘fixed’ Matoran kin. For a time, his adventures were encouraged by Turaga Jovan and all was good. In the years after the Great Cataclysm, however, Gaatus was forced to scale the outlying coastal features of Voya Nui Bay in search of supplies for his village, with his friend Rodakii.

Hi! I'm not sure if you are agree with me but i feel like S4 (or they previously p4) now has disappointing characterization as if yana didnt care of them at all (except violet). like they used to had different personality but this blue sect arc just make them looked the same?? they even too late realizing that violet had disappeared and worst they become way too naive and I have lost sympathize towards them :/

Mmm yeah, imo the P4 have always been extremely naive and one-dimensional from the very outset ^^; What I personally find a little bit frustrating about them is that they don’t seem to learn any lessons from their past mistakes and thus repeat the same mistake again and again. I mean, here’s a quick overview of all people who they were deceived in (within 1 year, btw) :

- Derrick and Agares

- Maurice

- the Headmaster (Undertaker)

- Ciel

- and Blavat

If I were in their place, I’d have distrust of human beings and would never trust anyone anymore (especially not those who seem overly nice), but words like “suspicion” or “trust issues” don’t seem to exist in their minds, and that’s why they made the same mistake again right after they were deceived in Derrick and Agares, and thus failed to see through Maurice, Ciel and Blavat x(

Slight Underlie Delay

Hello everyone :D 

I just wanted to announce that Underlie will be a tad late this week. Instead of updating on Friday I will be updating during the weekend. 

As some of you may know, i get the occasional wrist issues so i’ll need some extra time this week so as not to injure myself n_n I’ve learned my lesson from the past and am taking precautions this time XD

Thank you all for your understanding! <3 

(These are not my actual words they have been said to me by someone who was a part of my life for a very long time.)

To the one who loves her next,

She’s the type of girl we meet when we’re too young and we mess it up then spend our lives wondering what if we had been better to her.

When she met me she was full of life but somewhere along the line within all my mistakes she forgot how to smile. Now a smile have become a rare thing for her.

She’s an introvert. She will wander off for hours and get lost in books or music and you’ll think she’s ignoring you but she is not. She’s just comfortable in her own bubble but eventually she will find herself back to you.

She isn’t easily angered. I was a part of this girl’s life for three years and there were times when I would blow my top off and yell at her for things that were not her fault yet she stood by me. In all our years together she’s only lost her temper at me once.

When she loves you, she really loves you and she will love you for a long time. Be gentle with her heart. Heaven knows this is a lesson I wish I had learnt when we were younger.

This girl wears her heart on her sleeve. She will see things that will make her sad and she tries to fix all the things wrong with the world. When she does, just let her be it’s who she is but when she comes running to you and oh she will, just hug her.

I spent years hurting her so I can tell you this: Don’t do it she doesn’t deserve that. I’ve done things to her that I am not proud of. I spent heard making her cry but she never uttered a word for me. She spent months missing me yet she never let me know it.

She is trusting, perhaps too trusting. I am begging you not to take advantage of this like I did. I wish I could do back in time and undo everything I did to her.

She will always try to put you first, remind her to put herself first sometimes.

If she tells you she loves you, you better believe she does. She will be good to you and she is faithful. It’s easy to take this for granted but don’t. Losing her will be one of the biggest loses of my life. Trust me it’s been almost four years later and I still regret it.

Sincerely,
The guy who made all the mistakes because he was too young.

I always put everyone’s feelings before mine. It can be taxing emotionally and drain the shit out of me. I’ve learned how to balance that out and be a loving partner but also nourish myself. A lot of people forget about the whole self-love thing when they’re in love, and both are imperative.

Hey enrique, need some advice for how to build a functional aircraft

Step 1: Ignore all previously know lessons from past designs

Step 2: Take a bird, any bird, and build your plane as close as you can to it.

Step 3: Without making any type of test, nor listening to those “engineers” naysayers begging you to stop, get to a cliff, and prepare your aircraft for take-off.

Step 4: Fly!

tri. Chapter 5 - Recap, Review, Analysis [part four]

(part one ) (part two ) (part three)

Phew! This took way longer than I expected and my thoughts are still convoluted, but this movie was packed. I don’t think it was perfect by any means, but the themes are given a lot of depth, pacing was good, the plot is advancing, and the characters (especially Taichi) had some memorable moments. Above all, it worked far better after a (close) rewatch.

I think it’s up there with Kokuhaku in terms of quality. My faith in tri. continues to be justified!

We have months of speculation ahead of us, so I won’t bother you with a lot of predictions for what’s coming next. I’m sure I’ll come back to some of these ideas until the summer :)

Confederate monuments have literally nothing to do with “learning from mistakes” they’re fucking participation trophies to the losers in a Civil War that centred around the economics of owning human beings as property.

“B-but Germany has Holocaust monum–”

Are you fucking stupid? Do you have a brain? The Holocaust monuments exist as a.) Proof that the Holocaust fucking happened since till today people adamantly deny that it ever took place, and b.) a lesson from the past so that we do not repeat the same atrocities.

If Confederate monuments are actually about “learning from mistakes” and not about “muh heritage” then where do Confederate flags play a role in that? Hm? You’re telling me y’all wave that technicolored turd on cloth around as a cautionary tale? Fuck off.
