My Silence Is Just Another Word For My Pain



I always hear this sentence out from some girls mouth, looks like it is the only way for them to face their problem , mostly about 'love' matter. I wonder how can they just being silent all the time , how this can solve their problem? It sounds very selfish to me. Because every problem must have to be solved as soon as possible.

It doesn't mean there aren't any mistakes in your blog if nobody corrects you

While most of us think it's helpful to be corrected, some people might not think so. 

You may think it's embarrassing to be corrected in public - you may feel frustrated or disappointed or even offended. 

Making mistakes is part of learning, though. It's hard to imagine you'll be fluent in English without making any mistakes. So, chances are you'll make some mistakes in your writing unless you don't write at all. That is to say, the mistakes are always there whether somebody…

THE PURPOSE OF OUR LIVES

It All Starts with God 

For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible,. . . everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him. Colossians 1:16 (Msg) Unless you assume a God, the question of life's purpose is meaningless. Bertrand Russell, atheist



It's not about you. The purpose of your life is far greater than your own personal fulfillment, your peace of mind, or even your happiness. It's far greater than your family, your career, or…

I know that "Things do happen for a reason" but "whether…

Writing challenge: Broken Window

Who likes broken windows? I can say, almost nobody. But, Sometimes having a broken window is not that much bad! Okay, let me say. First of all, gentle breeze can enter into your room without opening the window. If you are a very busy person it goes with you. Secondly, you can feel the touch of late evening rain drops just standing by the broken window! You may put a bin beneath it (window) and throw something through it, time consuming, right? And, if your AC would not work in any late…

Strength of WOMEN

a woman has strengths that amaze men..

...she can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens

...she holds happiness, love and opinions

...she smiles when she feels screaming

...she sing when she feels like crying,

...cries when she's happy

...and laughs when she's afraid

...her love is unconditional!

There's only one thing wrong with her,

...she sometimes forgets what she is w0rth.

I WILL FORGIVE YOU

You forgive me for liking you too much,

And I'll forgive you for not liking me enough.



You forgive me for missing you so,

And I'll forgive you for being so cold.



You forgive me for the loud racing of my heart,

And I'll forgive you for not hearing it.



You forgive me for playing your games,

And I'll forgive you for toying with my emotions.



You forgive me for finding you so attractive,

And I'll forgive you…

Broken Windows of Life

This is a different view from what I posted recently on “Broken Window”. This time I’m taking the “Broken Window” a metaphor to the way life could look like. Let me explain myself.

Cluttered counter tops in the kitchen, messy stacks of newspaper in the living room, thick dust on the TV stand, shabby shoes, ripped clothes, dirty dishes piled in the sink, smell like sweat at work,…
