I mentioned in my other blog that I started another 30-day writing challenge from Micontingsabit. You can read her article about that here.

Words

We all know that words can be a powerful thing. It can make you or hurt more than physical pain. Verbal abuse. Praise and comfort. Even a simple "hi" can mean a lot. Two letters, one word.

I guess in a way I am thankful that my memory retention and recall is not that good. It helps because I don't let words get to my head. Or if someone said something bad about me, I might be offended but just temporary.

That goes to say that I can't remember what others have told about me. Good or bad. I can't recall. I don't hold a grudge and I reciprocate compliments.

The second question is about pet peeves. It asks about three.

Abusing people, animals and the environment and getting away with it. Abusing power and authority. You don't earn respect that way but rather fear and hate.

I don't like liars. Not the prank kind but those that lie so they can take advantage of others. In other words, manipulative. They play with your emotions.

People who are entitled and disregard others. We should be more considerate. I don't like loud noises. It may be okay for a few hours but daily and constant noise is not okay. Anything excessive is not okay.

What gets me down

This prompt was taken from another post and this is from BlueFlipper. You can read about that here. I have already answered the first question so let's get on with the rest.

Being in a wrong crowd.

I don't like crowds and to be among a group of people you don't like is not my thing. I am for comfort. I can party all night but it has to be with people I am comfortable with. Socializing drains me out. I'd rather be behind a book or here in read or watching movies - anything just doing my own thing.

Doing nothing and being busy.

Either of this two is tiring. Being unproductive and bored or too busy. We should find balance. Whenever I have too much sleep, that actually makes me tired even more and sleepy even more. Likewise, toxic days is draining.

Getting stuck in traffic. Waiting in line.

Need I say more?

I want to learn freediving.

For someone who doesn't know how to swim and has fear of the deep, yet loves going to beach, freediving has that kind of appeal. Those who dive make it look easy. It surely is a different world down there.

That's about it for now. My coffee is boiling so it's time to drink a cup before going to bed. I was hoping I could visit more of you here but my internet is acting up again.

It's been a good day so far. Looking forward to new changes in my work soon. I have mentioned before that one of our clients will be retiring. The initial plan was reshuffling meaning I will be transferred to another group. Today, however, we were informed that we will be taking over the clients of another group. So it's going to be a new learning, another adjustment for us soon.

What get you down does the same to me, I don't just feel comfortable in crowd, particularly those that are far related to me. Good luck

I envy those people that easily socializes in the misdt of crowed. I don't know it's shyness, I don't get along well in crowd especially in the midst of people I'm not familiar with. That's one of my weakness. Introvert to the core

We can connect with like-minded people offline and online. Life is fun and exciting when you are surrounded by amazing people. We may not change everything, but we can create an environment that we like.

It is true that even a single word has a great impact on everyone, it may encourage them or make them miserable, so everyone should be careful with their words.

Lying had always been difficult for me, I found out they each time I lie, I have to lie again to cover the previous lie and it goes on. The whole thing can be mentally draining. It's better to tell the truth once and fall all and be free. Wishing you success in your new duties sir.

True sir lee. Words are powerful. Even walang action, magsalita ka lang ng masakit sobrang maapektuhan na yung tao. Lesson na dapat isipin muna bago magsalita lalo na kung mga masasakit na words.
