Make you feel my love

Feeling totally unoriginal but these lyrics really spoke my heart and mind, made me tear a bit hearing it. Here is "Make you feel my love" by Adele. 

When the rain is blowing in your face and the whole world is on your case, I could offer you a warm embrace, to make you feel my love.

When the evening shadows and the stars appear and there is no one there to dry your tears, I could hold you for a million years, to make you feel my love.

I know you haven't made your mind up yet, but I would never do you wrong. I've known it from the moment that we met, no doubt in my mind where you belong.

I'd go hungry, I'd go black and blue and I'd go crawling down the avenue. You know there's nothing that I wouldn't do, to make you feel my love.

The storms are raging on the rolling sea and on the highway of regret, the winds of change are blowing wild and free. You ain't seen nothing like me yet.

I could make you happy, make your dreams come true. Nothing that I wouldn't do. Go to the ends of the Earth for you, to make you feel my love.

Credits to lyrics by Adele's "Make you feel my love" for speaking my heart out.

You earn respect...

There are some qualities in people that I just completely detest; one who thinks they are always right (never admits they're wrong), turn things the way they want you to think, not doing the things they preach, pushing their responsibilities to other people. Out of all this, they still think they are on top of things, like what? If you want respect, you earn it, no one is entitled to it.

Don't be unreasonable

Don't do something so ridiculous and expect people around you to comply to it, you're being unreasonable.

Don't take things for granted

When you ask for a favour, never expect an agreement to it. You are the one asking for the favour, which that person can simply decline. Don't go all attitude if he/she declines. "You've never did anything for me", really?

The world doesn't revolve around anyone, including you

The Earth revolves around the Sun, not you. Other people have their own lives, they don't have their life dedicated to you ONLY. No one does.

Don't do unto others what you don't want others to do unto you

When you do something to others, think about how you would feel if others were to do the same to you. Truthfully, would you feel comfortable? Would you feel good or happy? If the answers are 'no', the other person probably most likely feel the same... Deal with it.

No one is always right

You go all knowledgeable about stuff and things, but you're not always right, and you should know it. Stop being so egoistic.

Everyone has their right to believe in something

What you believe is not what everyone else should believe. Everyone has their own opinions to things. Please accept it and not turn these opinions back into your way to prove the other person otherwise. It's plain annoying and downright manipulative.

Please think about others before acting

Please think about others before acting, you're probably compromising on his/her comfort zone. What is he/she coping with right now? Is he/she really free now? Think about such circumstances before ordering anything onto that person...

Being too rigid is to your own disadvantage

No one wants to be with someone who is too rigid. Keeping up with what's going on in the world is so important, being stubborn doesn't help either.

Nothing beats meeting a nice person, but when you meet one who is not...

Journey there... and back

Journey through perspectives

Journey back into childhood

young & beautiful

I was in bus service no. 80 on the way back home. I was carrying loads of things so I decided to take the lower deck as opposed to the upper deck (which I always go to). When I sat down, I realised there was a lot of elderly people. However, there was this particular old man who was seated opposite me who caught my attention.

This old man was wearing a striped shirt, long grey pants, new balance sports shoes and a name tag around his neck. His face was wrinkled, his head filled with grey hair, mouth opened but not showing any teeth. As the bus was nearing Hougang area,  he was looking frantically out the window, as if he's lost. As I am a deeply empathetic person, this heavily affected me; my heart sank. It made me think how I would be like when I grow as old as this man... and questions just popped up in my mind.

What would I be left with when I grow old?

As we grow old, we lose things. These things could be of material, could be your values in life, the people around you, your family, your career, your agility and many more. What would I be losing, and with what that would be lost, what changes would it make in my life?

No longer young and beautiful?

It really scares me knowing how wrinkles will start creeping onto my face, how gravity would start pulling down my skin, no longer what people deem as "pretty". I will no longer be able to maintain this figure of mine. Knowing that these are inevitable, it really dawned upon me how fragile and short-lived "youth" actually is.

Will I still have my partner by my side?

I could never imagine a life without my partner. I'd never want to be lonely with no one to depend on and share my life with, both the ups and downs. How I wish we would grow old together, have our hands held together and have our love still burning.

Will I be able to remember my family?

The name tag around the old man's neck was really one that struck me. As I grow old, I'll slowly forget. I could not imagine how it would be like if I were to forget about my partner, or if he was to forget about me. What a terrible thing that would be... And what about my family or even myself? These creeping thoughts really scares me.

What will be awaiting?

Everyone's life ends with death, one that is inevitable and cruel. What illnesses will be awaiting or perhaps what incidents will be awaiting? Who will remember me, who will not? What's in the after life and will I be fearful about it?

Sorry if you found this post rather upsetting and negative, but I feel this is a rather important topic to talk about.

I guess not many of my readers know about my best friend. Her name is Shannon and has been my best friend since... 2010 officially. We've just been really close before that. So here's 10 signs you've found your best friend. Happy now, Shannon?

Do stupid things together

When I say stupid, I mean acting retarded all the time, even in public. It could be to the point where you're so embarrassed of her, you just want to walk away. But you don't. BEST FRIENDS STAY TOGETHER and embrace stupidity TOGETHER.

Criticise each other and not get offended

Calling each other names like "idot", "stupid", "retard", "b*tch" and so on will never offend the other. You say it and you laugh about it, nothing more.

Always having fun

It doesn't matter whether you're just chatting and chilling, you have fun. A karaoke session where you don't know the words? You don't give up, you improvise. And you have FUN doing so. Yes, we're just AWESOME like that.

You can laugh at everything 

It could just be a block of wood, a leaking tap, some passerby, anything. You will find something to laugh about it. 

The friendship is always there

Though we seldom meet up ever since we graduated, when we meet, it's like fireworks. BOOM. And we know the friendship and bond is still there. You become your retarded selves and have fun. 

Your boyfriend is jealous of her

This happened to me. He was jealous that she got to spend more time than he did. The point is, you are always with her, lunch, classes, studying and more.

Countless inside jokes

Don't even get me started on this. 

You're different but the same

She and I are really different. I love shopping while she doesn't, she likes capsicum while I hate it. I am more proactive, while she just lets the world go by around her. But when we are together, we carry the same vibe that just lets us click!

You jinx... A lot.. 

Jinx meaning you said the same thing at the same time perhaps even in the same tone. This is like telepathy, a natural connection! 

You love her

You know that however changed she becomes, you'll still embrace it and love her till the end. At times, you even have people coming up to ask if you two are lovers. That's exactly the vibe I'm talking about.

Here are some really bad quality photos of Shannon and I:

These are just 10 of the many things BFFs experience, what are yours?

when in love...

I was never sure what it is really like being in love, until I felt some intense emotions that made me go "Wow... I never knew I could feel like this". Though this is written in the perspective of a girl, I'm pretty sure it's similar for guys as well, right?

There's no place you'd rather be

There's really no place you'd rather be than being with him. You want to share every moment in life with him, get your daily dose of happiness and share the ups and downs just with him. He might be doing something that bores you, but heck, you just want to be with him.

You miss him constantly

When I say constantly, I mean constantly, like, all the time. Sometimes you could miss him so hard that tears just well up in your eyes and you physically feel pain in your heart. He has become like a desktop wallpaper in your mind you can't get rid of. You feel that life's unfair that he can't be here with you. 

You smile when you think of him

It could be a bad joke he cracked or something he did, you just start to smile or even laugh at your own thoughts of him. And then you start to miss him so strongly, that you start tearing up again. This is what I call the laughing --> crying phase.

You are your best self when you're with him

You start to realise you're the best version when you're with him. You suddenly become more cheerful, change in attitude towards him and feel more beautiful on the inside and out. Your family and friends might say you're a totally changed person when you're with him but, honestly, you just become a better person with him by your side.

You want him to be always happy

You become so self-conscious because you want to make him happy and never upset him ever. You naturally become upset when he is, and then you celebrate when he's cheerful again.

Hugging him is your new hobby

The feeling of hugging him becomes the best feeling in the world because you know everything you wanted is just in front of you in your embrace. You feel the warmth you've been craving and love you've desired.

Gazing at him is your second new hobby

The next best thing is just looking at him do his things. Be careful though, this may come off as REALLY awkward and creepy. You start to realise how blessed you are being able to call this guy your partner or your significant other. You gaze at him and, unaware, start to smile.

You forgive him

He never seem to run out of second chances. He might have pissed you off at some point in time but you know you love him enough to forgive and forget, because you want him to be always happy.

You want to introduce him to your parents

You are so excited to have known him and now that you've got him, you want your whole world to know. You not only want to introduce him to your parents, you want them to accept him. It is like you've got the highest score in class and want to show it off to the world.

You trust him

You tell him everything and are not afraid of being judged. You trust him enough to be away from him because you know you can never be always together even though you really want to. You trust him enough to give him space and his own freedom. You trust him enough to know that nobody is perfect but you accept. 

I hope these points have helped you out in figuring out what being in love is like. These are just 10 of the many points, comment down below if you have other points!
