I wish I can tell you how much it kills me when I have to deal with unreasonable and difficult people.

I am under the impression that I am being tested. It’s unimaginable. It breaks my heart knowing that there are people like them.

Which led me to search for articles that talk about them. I found a good one, Ten Keys to Handling Unreasonable & Difficult People .  Now, this blog talks about how I do it. And why do I write about it?

I know this someone. Okey, he isn’t just someone. He is special. If not, none of these would’ve mattered to me right?

How do I survive  dealing with the kind?

  • Sigh. When I sigh, that means retreat for me. There is nothing more fulfilling than showing diplomacy and do not talk when you are tempted to retaliate with words.
  • Look them in the eye with no emotion. There is nothing more satisfying than giving them what they deserve. They deserve no answer and a blank stare. I was once an aggressive and it didn’t do me any good. If there is one thing I learned, it’s to smile and to make them feel that you don’t care enough to respond. It kills the enemy.
  • Show them how the game is done. One way or the other, the negative person will learn that they are not high and mighty as they think they are. They are difficult to deal with because they have insecurities and they will never tell you that. They are strong but they aren’t unbreakable. Keep your cool.

These aren’t enough but you know how I hate battling for something that isn’t even worth thinking about.

Pray for those who persecute you. – Pastor’s Wife

In my weakness,
You help me find
An immaculate remedy.

In my anger,
You help me see
Rightly

In my down fall,
You help me get back
On my feet

I am not after an exemplary life.
I am after wrapping my mind in
The concepts of healing and salvation.

For in my life,
I was blinded
By fear and anger.

But God has shown me a better way to live.
Fear is now my ally.
Because I fear not the society.

But my redeemer, my God.

Happy Sunday! 🙂

Read: Exodus 2:2. The scripture talks about The Birth of Moses.

1. Perception for our children. If you perceive something as special, you’re going to take care of it.
2. Protection.
3. Preparation.

For kids;
Honor your parents.
Being smarter doesn’t mean wiser.

For parents;
Guide your children. Perceive for them, protect them and prepare them to see the world.

The Birth of Moses.

Good choice. Good catch. The difference.

MAN: My friend and I had a talk. He said you are a good choice and he likes you for me.

WOMAN: Oh, I would’ve bought it if I really am a good choice for you. In our case, I am only a good catch because you already have made your choice 2 years ago. Need I say more?

MAN: *Sigh*

WOMAN: I am only a good catch, I get it. And you don’t have to say anything. It’s not gonna change it. But I can be a good choice. It only takes a man to figure that one out in a second they lay their eyes on me.

End of Conversation.

P.S
For girls, you have to know your self-worth. Do not get stuck digging the grey area in between girl and friend. You should and I will stress out, YOU DESERVE to be called a girlfriend. Do not ever doubt your beauty and you do not need to test how much your heart can hold. You deserve more than that. If not the best.

The message is for all the girls who knows the difference between a good choice and a good catch but does not appreciate that learning at all. Probably, a note to self.

This song is for you.
Girls Chase Boys by Ingrid

Do not let the fear of the unknown and uncertainty take the greatness of your heart. Because we live in a secluded society, people are people. Do what you must. If it makes you feel good about yourself, you’re on the right track.

For today’s service Brothers and Sisters, We tackled about the next generations. The youth in our present times.

1. Pray for the next generation.
2. Dedicate the next generation to God.
3. Mentor the next generation.

So the picture attached here is my note about todays message. We love to do things our way, little do we know that one of the kids look up to us and may be, just maybe, we influence them. In order for us to have a better future, we always do what works for us.

The kids might be the next politician, the next Doctor, or whatever the endeavor may be, we should consecrate oursleves first before God. Then the next generation will follow our footsteps and be just like us.

I am a mother of 2 and I want them to serve God and have faith so as to move mountains.

I want them to be good and be that as their lifestyle. I want kindness to be their religion and God their hero, their strenght.

I want them to do best in whatever they choose to become someday. I am definitely not a good example. So please help me God.

I will end this message in a prayer.

I pray to you Lord God, my savior, to help me be the best example for everyone to see. Be my eyes when I can’t see rightly. Be my feet when I can’t walk away from evil. Be my mind when I think I cannot get through a battle, remind me that I can and my faith is strong,no one can defeat me. Be my heart when I can’t love the unlovable. Help me forgive. Help me forget. Help me to be strong. I pray this in humility, in faith. I will believe in your will. I will believe in your words. I will live in accordance to Your will. In Your name, Jesus. Amen.

It’s ok to get mad sometimes.
It’s ok to feel lost somewhere.
It’s ok to curse somehow.
If only for a moment,
You feel the anguish of heart.

You just got to be so sure you won’t feel the same over and over for the same reason.

So hey, it’s rest day again. My long wait is over. ( For the days I have been longing since Sunday!) You have no idea.

I have listed the things I will make sure to accomplish.

To watch movies. thank heaven for the movies I downloaded on a website. All HD.

The Book Thief. I hate to say it, but I wasn’t able to watch it on the big screen. Not to mention that I haven’t read the book yet.

Non Stop. I’ve heard a lot of good reviews about the movie so why not add it. I have it downloaded anyways.

300 Rise of an Empire. I am not a fan of violence or whatsoever but I’m a fan of sexy body. Goodness gracious, that Sullivan Stapleton and his amorous body. So hawt! hot!

Unfaithful. It’s a 2002 movie about married couple. A New York suburban couple’s marriage goes dangerously awry when the wife indulges in an adulterous fling. Sounds fun!

 

That’s about it for my A-List.
I’m still going to read books. On my list: If I stay by Gayle Forman, The Kiss by Daniel Steel.

And maybe that’s just it for now.
I still have a life to live outside my comfort home, I am going to have dinner with friends and family.

Sundays, of all days! I will attend the service. I’m kind of excited because we have a new series. Plus Pastor Jeff never fails to make me so happy, enlightened and fulfilled.

“I hope someday she meets just the right man and has babies – a whole passel of babies, more than I could have – so she understands how it kills me now that she won’t let me hug her when she’s in obvious distress. (The Life You’ve Imagined)”

Juana,

I know it’s hard for you to understand now how I treat you as a daughter. You know, when it comes to you, I am such a frustrated mother.

You are so wise and patient. You always try to see the good side of things. And with that, I am happy.

You love me and that kind of love is something I know for myself I don’t deserve. There are times I get mad at you and I nag at you. You have no idea why.

My precious, I love you with all that I am.
Please forgive me if I get mad and you think I want you to be perfect.

I only want you to be so powerful, no guy can ever break you.

I want you to respect yourself and trust that people, regardless of who they are, can break you.. And I don’t want that to happen. God knows I’ll kill for you.

I thank the Lord above for bringing you to me. You were born with 60 chances of dying and 40 to live.

But you lived.

You are a survivor.

As your mother, I don’t want you to just survive.
I need you to conquer.
Don’t let people decide for you. Don’t let them hurt you. Like they did to me.
I don’t want you to suffer the same pain I suffered.
I don’t want you to feel rejected and hated.

You are a grown up with a big heart.
You love making friends and people loves you, that I can see.

I will not be surprised one day, you will ask permission to go out with friends.
Please choose wisely, the people you want to be part of your wonderful world.

I want you to live in a world where you are free. Make your dreams come true for mine’s shattered.

No one in this world can ever know how much love I have for you.
Please forgive me for all my shortcomings.
Forgive me for my irresponsibilities.

Forgive me, my precious.

The picture says it all and I cannot agree more.

“No nation has ever taxed itself into prosperity.” ― Rush Limbaugh

I just found it too good not to share. Truth be told.
