break free!

From the @notebookoflove… Read on!

“People may hate you for being different and not living by society’s standards, but deep down, they wish they had the courage to do the same.

Sometimes we put up walls. Not to block people out, but to see who cares enough to knock them down.

Not all scars show. Not all wounds heal. Sometimes, you can’t always see the pain someone feels.

Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you’ll understand what little chance you have in trying to change others.

Hiding my emotions doesn’t mean I don’t have feelings.

Stand up for what you believe in, even if it means standing alone.

People spend their whole lives trying to live up to other people’s expectations and being told what to do. I say screw that. Be free.

People will always believe what they want to believe.

Don’t always say what you know, but always know what you are saying.”

Cheers! 😉

painful weapons

A pinch to the soul from the @thenotebookoflove… Read on! 😉

“Live without pretending, love without depending, listen without defending, speak without offending.

Only when you compete with yourself can you become a better you. If you decide to compete with others, you’ll end up bitter.

Excuses hold you back. Action moves you forward.

Confidence is admitting who you are, what you’ve done, and loving yourself for what you’ve become, no matter what others think of you.

People will choose to blame their circumstances on fate or bad luck. Very few will admit it’s mainly the choices they have made.

Be happy in front of people who don’t like you, it kills them.

People may hate you for being different and not living by society’s standards, but deep down, they wish they had the courage to do the same.

Sometimes we put up walls. Not to block people out, but to see who cares enough to knock them down.

You made your own choices, so don’t blame anyone for the consequences.

If you don’t mean something, don’t say it, words are painful weapons that can’t be undone.”

love triangle

Ready?
(Note: Check out the article “baffled?” for a sneak preview of this article.)

Mitch (served as the moderator)

  • Pro Yno
  • believed that Yno can take care of the relationship better than Alex.

Scott

  • made an effort to be neutral but obviously Pro Alex
  • hoped that Yno is the type who’s there even if how many years have passed like Alex

Robert

  • clearly Pro Alex

TheCuriousMe

  • cautiously Pro Yno

Below are insights of the “relationship council” about the issue:
(Just a heads up, Mitch and Scott preferred to throw more facial expressions than comments.)

In the end, what’s important the most is the guy who accepts Buffy’s imperfections and will move the earth just to be with her. And of course, the love should be mutually shared by both parties.(found in cool vs class)

Darn! Be it Korean, Taiwanese, Singaporean, Filipino and American TV Series… it seems like this is even better than all the TV Series that I’ve watched!  Whoa!  I wonder what will be the ending of this intricate love story?

  • Will Buffy end up with Alex? or
  • Will Buffy end up with Yno? or
  • Will Buffy end up with someone else?
  • Will Buffy end up unattached?

What’s your take on this? 😉

situation 1

“The communication between the guy and the lady resurrected after few months. An opportunity paved the way for them to be in the same time zone in which gave the guy a chance to visit  the lady and “propose”. Is it happily ever? 😉 Think again… Last minute, the guy chicken out due to petty (childish) reason. O_O  ”  (found in my thoughts… exactly!)

rolling eyes

Scott: It will make anyone wonder what Yno would have done.

Robert: Imagine how boyish it would be to approach the girl and the guy is already pissed. Of course, he will most probably blurt out in front of other people “what are you doing and who is this guy?”
Considering the fact that Alex is more of a serious type person and a lawyer, if I were him, I would have probably taken things literally.

TheCuriousMe: Thats the point, he’s a lawyer. He should very well know that there’s always the other side of the coin. You cannot give a verdict based on a circumstancial evidence. You have to see both sides.

situation 2

  • Alex is expressing his intent to reunite with Buffy after several years of being “apart”.
  • Yno yearns to be a part of Buffy’s life
  • Buffy is somewhat growing closer to Yno but trying to restrain herself because things seem to be bizarre at the moment.

 

together

Robert:
I have ended a relationship before and I’m a man. I could simply move on real quick because it didn’t affect me or I cannot move on and can’t let go because I still want the girl back.

Buffy is being too hard to herself. She is driving Alex away because of bitterness or anger. And there’s a bit of denial on that.

TheCuriousMe:
May the best man wins! Obviously Alex and Yno are just more on hype. No concrete action. They should buck up!

situation 3

Why don’t just Alex muster up the courage to go to Buffy’s place directly talk to her?

bok bok bok!

Robert: How will Alex do that now when it shows that Buffy is already entertaining Yno? I’m a guy, I would be crushed.

TheCuriousMe: Alex chickens out easily. Possibly, Yno is also a chicken in the making.

situation 4

What should Buffy do?

think Buffy….

Robert:
Perhaps, think things through, know if her heart is in the right place in terms of anger, giving a chance, denial, what does she really want, etc

Remember, there are things, places, people or events that act as the path – they could direct her to where she should be.

It does not and never always meant that she stays there.
Maybe Buffy met Yno to bring back Alex to her.
(TheCuriousMe: or the other way around?)

They don’t always tell you that they are the right one.
Remember, you meet several guys before you meet the right person.

TheCuriousMe:
Buffy should be wise enough to discern to follow her heart and her mind.
Both guys should prove their sincerity by talking to Buffy directly. Moreover, the guy who deserves Buffy is someone who’s willing to be with her (wherever she is) and help fulfill her mission.
