anger management

i think you misunderstood when your therapist advised you to write things down, they didn’t mean for you to post it on facebook.

once in a while, i’ll see a very angry facebook status on the lines of:

“btch i hope you fcking die!”
“karma’s a btch you slut!”
“fck you, two-faced motherfckers!”
“if i ever see you again, i’ll fck you up!”

damn, chill the fck out. why are you so angry?
were you not loved as a child?

at least if you’re going to post it all over facebook, why don’t you just disclose the name?
“he/she knows who they are”
well i don’t and i want to know 😦

“i’ll fck them up for you”
i understand your friends will have your back, but publicly posting a potential assault isn’t the right way to go. you’re announcing your strong bond with this angry person, i get it. but we’re not children anymore. assaulting people = jail time. if something were to tragically happen to this person, guess who’s first on the suspect list? you might as well post all your criminal offenses on facebook and get caught like some stupid people. you’re halfway there.

what baffles me the most about this prepubescent behavior is that if this person keeps pissing you off, why won’t you just simply remove that person from your life? if you get a splinter in your finger, wouldn’t you be quick to remove it to stop the pain? is that just too easy of a solution?
oh. no drama makes life dull and boring? oh okay, i think i get it now.

if it’s a different person that keeps pissing you off all the time, then maybe you should take a good look in the mirror? maybe the problem is your attitude? maybe airing your dirty laundry on facebook isn’t going to solve your problems either? they’re just suggestions, please don’t fight me.

when you air your dirty laundry on facebook, it’s not classy, you don’t look tough or important, and your problems won’t disappear, heck, it might make it worse. “calling out” unnamed people on facebook out of all places is just attention seeking behavior. it just shows that you can’t handle your own and maybe it’s time you grow the fck up and just deal with it like an adult. everyone has people who pisses them off at an equivalent level of anger, but you don’t see us posting angry verbal assaults for all our friends to see, do we?

so next time you’re about to press that “post” button, take a deep breath and take a chill pill.
your therapist is only one call away.


happy birthday

today is my twenty-sixth birthday.

there were a couple of moments in my life where i seriously didn’t think i would actually live to see twenty six. those moments define who i am today and i’m glad that i was able to learn from them because it made me stronger and more resilient to all that is still left in store for me.

this year, i’ve had more self-reflection than any other years of my life on what type of person i want to be and especially what type of person i’ve become. i realized that i hate a lot and love a little as a result of becoming more observant of my surroundings and the people in it, hence the creation of this blog.

i hate getting older because i swear yesterday i just woke up for work at 8am on a monday in january and today it’s almost the end of the day of the 18th in august. it’s almost as if i fell into a deep coma and just woke up cause i seriously don’t know where the time went.

it’s quite ironic in the way we wished time could speed up when we’re younger so we can do all the things we end up hate doing, like driving a car, making money, and falling in love. as we get older, all we end up wishing is for it to slow down as we realize how fast our parents are getting older, how little time we have in a day to complete what we have to accomplish, how little time we spend with the people and pets that we love, and all the other small things we overlook.

from what my older friends are telling me, it’s not going to get any better and everything is going to start going downhill. like my wrinkle-less face, abundance of energy, and recovery time from binge drinking or exercising. i’m already starting to feel the effects of aging because for once i preferred to have a simple dinner with friends rather than go to the club and party until 10am. i just simply can’t keep up anymore.

i don’t know what to make of turning twenty six because now i’m in that weird age range where i’m not young or old. besides being considered a senior citizen, i no longer have any age restrictions left on what i can and cannot do. this weird age range i’ve just entered is equivalent to the leftover take-out in the fridge where you don’t know if it’s good or bad enough to eat. i just don’t know what to make of it.

anyways, turning twenty-six sucks and turning twenty-seven will be even worse. thankfully, i’m not that old yet, as my family and friends are still alive and not dying off, so i guess it’s not that bad?

thanks to my family, and friends who made me feel loved on this weird and confusing day.
cheers to another year of life. yay.
