never lose hope and faith

Όσα θέλω να πω.

Αρχίζω να πιστεύω ότι πολλοί σε αυτόν τον κόσμο μπερδεύουν την αγάπη με κάτι προσωρινό. Όταν πήρα το θάρρος να πω πρώτη φορά Σ'αγαπάω σε κάποιον πήρα όλη την ευθύνη της φράσης αυτής. Και παρόλο που το είπε και εκείνος μετά από κάποιες μέρες ήξερα πως δεν είχε πάρει την ίδια ευθύνη με μένα. Επέλεξα να το αγνοήσω όντας ερωτευμένη. Νόμιζα πως ήμουν ευτυχισμένη. Κατέληξα, και είμαι περήφανη γι’ αυτό, να βάζω τα δυνατά μου να σταθώ στο ύψος των συναισθημάτων μου ενώ εκείνος έφευγε. Σχεδόν από το πουθενά μετά από ένα πολύ μικρό διάστημα ήρθε εκείνος στην ζωή μου και έκανε τα πάντα να μοιάζουν καινούργια. Άρχισε η ευτυχία να σημαίνει κάτι για εμένα. Είχα πια καταλάβει πολύ καλά πως ότι είχα ζήσει στο παρελθόν δεν ήταν ούτε κατά διάνοια κοντά στην ευτυχία. Με έκανε να ξεχάσω πόσο καταστροφικό ήταν να χρησιμοποιείς αυτήν την φράση σε έναν κόσμο που την χρησιμοποιεί μόνο για να το κάνει. Κι έτσι το έκανα ξανά. Το είπα και το είπα από το πιο βαθύ κομματάκι της ψυχής μου. Δεν με ένοιαζε τι είχα περάσει εξαιτίας αυτής της φράσης γιατί ένιωθα ότι βρήκα αυτό που έψαχνα. Ώσπου ξαφνικά χάθηκε. Σκορπίστηκε στο ξερό αεράκι του καλοκαιριού. Εκείνος είχε φύγει. Σταμάτησα μια στιγμή και σκέφτηκα: “Θεέ μου αυτή η φράση καταστρέφει ότι φτιάχνω με τόσο κόπο. Παίρνει ότι αγαπώ μακριά.” Θύμωσα, ορκίστηκα ότι δεν θα την ξαναπώ, ότι δεν θα το ξανά νιώσω. Πόσο χαζή ήμουν; σε έναν κόσμο που κανείς δεν παίρνει την ευθύνη για όσα ισχυρίζεται ότι αισθάνεται εγώ ξεχωρίζω. Εγώ όντως αισθάνομαι. Και δεν θα σταματήσω να το κάνω μέχρι να βρω κάποιον που να αισθάνεται μαζί μου. Που να λέει Σαγαπάω και να αφιερώνει όλον του τον εαυτό σε αυτήν την φράση. Ο κόσμος είναι τόσο όμορφος για να σταματήσω να ελπίζω. Για να σταματήσω να αισθάνομαι.

“If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.  If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing.  If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.

Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out.  Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

~ 1 Corinthians 13:1-7 {NLT}

Knowing that someone believes in you, has faith in you and supports you is the best feeling in the whole wide world. They keep you from giving up and they give you hope, motivation and drive.

Find that person that makes you happy and that has this faith in you and I promise you, with them by your side you are never alone and you can make it through anything because it WILL get better.

No matter how long it takes to find that path, this time whenever you fall someone is going to be there to catch you and pull you back up.

—  Not alone after all
I really hope people see the lyrics for Not Today. It is way more than the beat. (i know the beat is amazing). But this song is a comfort for those with fucked up lives. A song where it tells you to never lose hope and to never “kill yourself”. They mention how we should have faith in BTS to stand by us in our darkest times and to never let our guard down and keep on fighting for our happiness.

it really means a lot to me that fullmetal alchemist has such a diverse list of strong female characters. we see so many different women being equally as strong and competent as the men surrounding them. in some cases, more so. arakawa could have easily made hawkeye or winry male characters. both are experts in a field or discipline that is traditional thought of as masculine. yet winry is one of the best automail technicians in amestris, with crowds of people requesting her specifically in rush valley, the home of top of the line automail experts. hawkeye is widely regards as the best shot in the army, whether it’s long or short range and is seen on several occasions protecting and saving mustang. izumi is a self proclaimed housewife that is incredibly powerful and taught the elrics how to fight. sheska is a bookworm who has extensive knowledge of the facts and history of amestric and central city in particular. pinako is an elderly woman who refuses to run from amestris because she needs to be there, home, when the elrics and winry return. olivier is known as the queen of the north, working at one of the harshest and most dangerous outposts in the country, the nothern wall of briggs. she runs with an iron fist, but is dedicated to her comrades. she’s repeatedly protected the country from drachma in subzero temperatures. she strategically navigates the politics of central to her advantage and holds her place among the other generals leading to tricking them into revealing their human weapons experiments. trisha single handedly raised her two children, never losing hope or faith in Hohenheim and supporting her boys when they start to learn alchemy. rose overcame religious brainwash and devastating loss, which lead her to helping rebuild lior after the churches uprising. sarah went to ishval during the war, providing help and medicine to whoever needed it. lan fan protected ling with every bit of her devotion, going as far as to sacrifice her arm. she went through painful automail surgery to stay by his side. she is seen holding her own against edward elric, king bradley, and Father in the final fight. may, a young girl from a poor family in xing, traveled alone to amestris in hopes of helping her family. she offered priceless information and knowledge that lead to the defeat of Father and the survival of the entire country. she also had a part in helping return al to his original body. gracia hughes lost her husband, but stayed strong and moved forward, never once blaming the elric brothers. even mrs. bradley, a woman who found out that her husband and son were not humans, went on to raise the baby that edward pulled from the center of pride. she did not treat him poorly or in fear, she gave him a loving home and raised him with all the compassion and kindness that she had raised selim. paninya, a girl born in poverty with a debilitating disability, worked hard and grew stronger, making a name for herself and resolving to repay mr. dominic in an honorable way. 

all of these women are complex, developed, full fledged characters that are strong and powerful in their own rights, despite being vastly different people. and none of them are ever criticized or talked down to for the way that they live their lives. and that’s just really, really important to me. 

The Signs from a Cancer's View

Aries: You are so fun to be around! You often share my sense of humour. I admire you for your fierce intelligence and your way to deal with things. You always know what to do and it seems that you have not one single thing that bothers you in life. But you just don’t get me. I feel like we live in different worlds and you just don’t see what I see. Maybe it is because you keep your inner world mostly to yourself or because we have other priorities in life. Tbh conversations with you can get pretty lit and sometimes I feel like you don’t only want me to accept but also adopt your opinions.

Taurus: I feel connected to you, because you love in the same way I do. Your heart is so big and you’re so kind and patient, it makes me wanna cry. When I see you I can’t help but feeling safe and warm. You make life so much more bearable. But sometimes you don’t appreciate the things given to you or the people close to you. You push them away instead of talking to them. Don’t eat up your anger and sadness, it’s okay to be weak.

Gemini: You’re so mysterious. We are passionate about the same topics and we always laugh about each other’s jokes. Your presence is just soothing and I feel like we could talk for hours and hours without getting bored. You’re so intelligent that I sometimes feel a little intimidated by all the things you know that I don’t. But you’re unapproachable and sometimes I feel like I don’t know you at all. How can you change so much according to the people you’re with?

Cancer: You’re head’s stuck in clouds and you’re just so creative. You see beauty in the ugliest of things. How is it you never lose hope or faith? You laugh and cry and grieve but after some time there’s always a new beginning ahead of you. But you just can’t control yourself. Whatever emotion you have it forces itself out of your throat. You’re not dramatic, it’s just the ocean never standing still inside you. In fact, you just don’t know how to hold it back.

Leo: You remind me of a Hollywood actor in the 50’s. You’re just so attractive, always smiling with that hint of self-confidence. You are determined to get what you want and you will continue trying to get it until the very end. You are so engaged in things and your schedule is always full, but you keep on going. If I had so much things going on in my life I would probably have a mental breakdown. But you’re kind of a show-off, always trying to catch up on conversations from the other corner of the room, talking about yourself for one hour straight.

Virgo: You are always planning a new adventure and you’re so eager to understand the world, it makes me wanna travel with you. You possess a wisdom caused by tears and laughter and wounds. You’re life was so damn hard that I wonder how you can still keep on smiling. You’re so grateful for the little things in life that you don’t even have to search for happiness. You’re so independent so why is it you never grant that independence to others? Sometimes you need to let go, watching from afar how others try to get their shit together.

Libra: You’re light like a feather but brave like a lion. How is it that life can never get you down? How can someone be so beautiful inside out? I love you because you have that passion you can’t control, because it’s so beautiful to watch anger and happiness forcing themselves on your face when you speak. You’re just as crazy as I am and laughing and talking to you is one of the best feelings in the world. You’re brutally honest, never holding back the thoughts floating between you and other people. But you should be cautious to only speak up to people who can take it.

Scorpio: Conversations with you are so satisfying, it feels like cleansing my soul. Every dark corner, every embarrassing desire, every childish dream of me is safe in your heart, which would never judge me because it often feels exactly the same. You’re just so pure and real that I can’t imagine ever lying to you or being lied to by you. My soul and body feel comfortable when you’re around and my deepest secrets turn into a story I want to share with you. Our brain and feelings are working in the same rhythm, I appreciate how alike but strangely different we are.

Sagittarius: You know how to soothe your body and soul. You know what’s best for you and you would never let others tell you how to behave or how to deal with things. You are eager to find a beautiful, safe place to settle down but you will never stop looking for more. More adventure, more happiness, more life. You’re restless but you’re sure as hell always there to talk to when I need advice. Even though we’re not living the same life or searching for the same things, we get along. As long as we’re not talking about our morals or ethics, we’re totally fine with each other.

Aquarius: Your intellect is so complex that only few can keep up with or understand you. It seems that you’re always on the road to collect more memories and impressions to solve the great mystery of life. You’re never finished searching and finding. You’re a restless wanderer who longs to broaden his horizon every minute of life. But experiencing the world in a spiritual, active way, doesn’t make you any more special than the rest of us. Seeing and feeling everything as pure as you do doesn’t mean knowing the ultimate truth. I don’t need to believe in the same things you believe in.

Capricorn: You’re too sexy. I can’t handle how different and identical we are at the same time. I feel like you’re my missing puzzle piece and you’re everything I want to be: brave, determined, strong. I can’t help seeing you as someone mysterious who I want to sink in deep, who I want to understand, whose feelings I want to discover. You’re endlessly fascinating to me and that’ll always make me want you even though I don’t know you at all.

Pisces: You’re so kind and warm-hearted and it makes me wanna be with you everyday. You’re never too loud, you’re never rushing things, you’re so gentle, that I feel like I’m sitting in front of a fire, wrapped in blankets when talking to you. Although we never talk about the waves moving in us, I know that you feel things as intense as I do. I feel secure, knowing, that your inner world looks exactly like mine: unsteady, chaotic and out of balance. We share the same subtle sense of humour and we can always laugh about each other’s jokes.

dbz characters positive post

vegeta: where do I even fucking start. best character development of all times. fucked up a billion times but made up for it in the end. learned how to love, and do you have any idea how hard that can be for someone who grew up without even knowing the concept of love? most obstinate person you will ever heard of. fought and defeated his strongest enemy: himself. never gives up no matter what, truly an inspiration to everyone else. has no chill whatsoever but makes visible effort to control his temper for the sake of his family and friends (speaking exclusively about Super here). “mondo cool™”. also has a great ass.

frieza: “you’re certainly on the ball today, Captain Ginyu. If you were a dog, I’d scratch your belly. If you were a cat, I’d give you warm milk until you started to purr. But since you’re neither of these, I’ll just say thanks for a job well done.”


as I said, they all have something to offer and I’m particularly grateful for frieza’s contribution. 

“Crear el navío no es tejer las tejas, forjar los clavos, leer los astros, sino más bien transmitir el gusto del mar”.

Welcome to Browntown; “Another beautiful day in the bush or paradise”.

Never lose hope and faith, they never give up.

A wise man said to a person who said to him, “I lost everything in a fire”, “I thought you lost your hope. You can earn everything with hope but if you lose your hope, then you lose everything.”

وَلَا تَيْأَسُوا مِن رَّوْحِ اللَّهِ إِنَّهُ لَا يَيْأَسُ مِن رَّوْحِ اللَّهِ إِلَّا الْقَوْمُ الْكَافِرُونَ

“…and never give up hope of Allah’s Soothing Mercy: truly no one despairs of Allah’s Soothing Mercy, except those who have no faith.“ (Surah Yusuf 12 :87)

Allah is sufficient for us against all kinds of troubles and misfortunes that we suffer. He is such a nice friend and disposer of affairs. A person who says,

"Hasbunallahu wa ni'mal wakil” (For us Allah sufficeth, and He is the best disposer of affairs) takes refuge in Allah and remembers the verse,

“…and it was due from us to aid those who believed” (Surah Ar-Rum 30 :47)

and goes on without being hampered by obstacles even if the events have huge waves like mountains. He interpretes the events favourably, sees the life from an optimistic point of view and relaxes by thinking, “A person who sees the good in things has good thoughts. And he who has good thoughts receives pleasures from life.”

Sometimes we ask the Lord so many why’s. Why do I have to get sick, why do I have to get broke, why do I have to experience a failed relationship, why do I have to feel unwanted, unworthy, unloved? Why am I compromised, why am I taken for granted? Why do I have to fail? Why are things not going the way I planned, the way I wanted? What did I do wrong or maybe have failed to do to have succeeded or to have felt wanted? 

We wanted answers, we ask when everything’s going to be okay, but we don’t get it right away and so we have to wait because a flower doesn’t bloom right away when it’s just planted yesterday. We need to wait for the Lord’s perfect timing so His will for us could be fulfilled! We have to experience all that so we can be molded into the person God wants us to be: strong, mature but dependent on our God.

Just because we experience all these downs today, doesn’t mean it will remain forever this way. We will eventually reach our peak with God because nothing is impossible with Him. He can turn every setback to a breakthrough, He can restore and heal, He can turn things around, He can help you succeed, He can make you change the way you see yourself from a nobody to somebody, He can give you your identity that you are loved and you are priceless! He loves you so much and He has good plans for you. He loves you so much to not lift you up and carry you. So never give up, never lose hope, trust in God, remain faithful, and wait patiently for what He has in store for you!

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. -Proverbs 3:5-6 

i. Learn how to look at the mirror without wanting to see someone else staring back at you. Learn how much you are worth without anyone else spelling it out for you. Learn how to love yourself through the storms and sunshine, through the successes and mistakes, through your downfalls and flights. Learn how to be there for yourself unconditionally.

ii. Forgive others for causing pain to your heart, for leaving you behind, for not loving you the way you love them. Forgive the past for the parts of it that are cruel and for visiting you when all you want is to leave it behind. Forgive the universe for giving you the bad days and the situations that you never want to be into. Forgive yourself for the disappointments you caused to yourself, for the days when you don’t even want to try, for the moments when you are hurting yourself. Forgive yourself because you can’t keep on hating and blaming yourself forever. Whatever happens, wherever life takes you, choose forgiveness every time.

iii. Saying ‘no’ is a power that you should not be afraid of using. If you don’t feel like going out tonight, say no. If you don’t want to be touched where he is touching you, say no. If you know you can’t do what they are asking you, say no. It is better to say no than to make decisions that are against your will. Remember that you are not obligated to just do whatever everyone is telling you to do.

iv. Don’t let yourself live in hatred for a long time. It is a feeling that will consume your whole being and it will make you forget that you are human. Don’t let that happen. Never forget who you are.

v. It is okay to be alone if you don’t feel like mingling with anyone. It is okay to not answer the messages and calls you receive if you don’t feel like it. It is okay to just stay in your room as you surround yourself with darkness and silence if that is what makes you feel better. If you enjoy solitude, don’t feel guilty for seeking it.

vi. Severe ties from people who are doing you no good and the ones who are only toxic to your living. If they are draining you and making you doubt your worth, leave them. If they are hurting you and using you only for their own advantage, disconnect with them. If you feel like you can not trust them anymore, turn away from them. You deserve so much more than what they can give you.

vii. If you are in a place where you feel like you don’t belong anymore, remember that you can walk away. Don’t let yourself stuck somewhere you are not happy and not growing as an individual. Let your feet seek the place where it truly fits. The world is so much bigger than it seems. You will find your place in it someday.

viii. You will meet those kind of people who will never get tired of you. Those who can make you smile no matter how miserable you are. Those who will never leave you even when you are on your worse state. Those who will accept you when you can not even look at yourself. Those who will love you beyond the reason why. Never let those people go.

ix. Be careful with every word that you will say or write. If you are feeling too much emotion, don’t let yourself speak of things that you will regret in the future. It is important for you to think throughly on how your words will affect the situation you’re in. It may make or break you and everyone around you.

x. You don’t owe an explanation to strangers who meddle about your life. Some people won’t stop judging you about your decisions and others would even tell you how to govern your own but you should learn how to listen to the right voices. Those who care for you will understand, others are just trying to mess up with you.

xi. Loving someone will never be easy. It is not always romance and flowers and I love you’s. It can also be tears and pain and sacrifices. There will be a lot of difficulties and most of the time, you will find yourself on the edge of giving up but as long as you think it is worth it, as long as you believe it is real, as long as you can feel that what you have is worth fighting for, then you can always find a way to hold on tighter.

xii. You can not just keep on pushing people away and expect them to stay. You can not just keep on shutting them down and expect them not to get tired of you. There are times that you’ve got to let them in. You’ve got to open up to them. You’ve got to let them be there for you. Because as much as you claim you are better off alone, there will be times that you will need them to be there for you.

xiii. You don’t have to wear your mask every time. You don’t always have to pretend that you are okay whenever you feel like you’re falling apart. It is okay to be weak sometimes. It is okay to welcome the emotions that are trying to consume you. Sometimes, you’ve got to let yourself feel the worst so that you’ll know how to go from there.

xiv. When things are over with you and someone, whether it ended well or not, be thankful for the memories you had with that person. Remember that people come and go to our lives with a purpose. They might hurt you or made you happy or both, they still contributed in shaping you as the person that you are today. Cherish the memories, remember the lessons, accept that it is over and face what is ahead of you.

xv. Always think rationally. Don’t let your emotions get the best of you for it will affect the decisions that you will make that may worsen the situation that you are in. Whenever you feel like you want to explode, calm yourself down and breathe deeply. Focus on the problem as you think of a logical solution for it.

xvi. Never forget the good things in life and all those moments that made you want to stay alive for a long time. No matter how much you feel like giving up in some days, hold on to those memories that could make you smile, those people who made you realize your worth and those dreams that you still have to turn into a reality.

xvii. Nobody can make or break you for yourself. Whether you end up miserable or victorious because of something that happened or someone who came into your life, it is your own choice, not anyone else’s. You are your own responsibility. You have the ability to turn yourself into the best or worst version of it so it is important to know if you are becoming the former or the latter.

xviii. Whatever happens, never lose hope and faith on yourself, on people who are around you and most specially, on God. This is what will keep you going when you feel so lost to continue.

—  n.a., 18 Things I Learned When I Was 18 (and I’m still learning)

Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. 💕 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

A LOVE LETTER TO SEVENTEEN

DISCLAIMER: THIS CONTAINS A LOT OF EMOTIONS. DO NOT REPOST AND CLAIM AS YOUR OWN OR I WILL PERSONALLY HUNT YOU DOWN.


My dear Seventeen,

I honestly struggle finding words. So I hope this will come out okay. I am so proud, more than proud, to call you my favorite group. Today is your one year anniversary and I honestly am astonished by how fast time goes by. It feels like yesterday that you were doing your Christmas skits and struggling to accomplish the missions on Seventeen Project. And here you are, with your first album, concerts and loads of fans who couldn’t be happier to have such wonderful people in their lives. You may not know that many of us even exist, yet you make us feel like we are part of the family and that’s not something many Idols do. We feel like being your friends because you never act like someone else, you say and do what you feel like.

NLT
New Living Translation
4Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.

Let me stop there… Love is all these things and more. However in today’s world it’s become tainted. Love is used for selfishness. People confuse love with financial gain or social status even. I say these things not speaking outta my ass but from personal experience and from things I’ve witnessed. I’ve seen parents become jealous of their children. Children betray their parents..Marriages destroyed over moments of pleasure…Another thing love is, it’s guaranteed pain on so many levels. I warn people in today’s society.. to not get attached to anything or anyone. Why ? Your going to indeed be in some type of pain and suffering for it. Speaking of..I’m no longer into religion but I am spiritual. So yeah..speaking of.. Pain and suffering the last time love walked this earth..it died on the cross. #RomeoUnborn
