Me: Does it make me a bad person if I feel defensive when people comment on the things I write?
Kuya Rex: Haha, what do you think?
I guess it’s human nature. Everybody wants to be praised, but nobody wants to be criticized.
So me, I’m just going to try my damnedest to rise above my human frailties. I will take in everything with humble modesty that will spit graciously on the face of condescension. I will feast on approval leisurely and savor every moment of it; I will chew rebuke determinedly until it’s tender enough to swallow.
Kase sa totoo lang, ang tagal-tagal ko ‘tong hinihintay.
Pero bakit ngayong nandito na, parang hindi naman ako masaya?
…siguro kase dapat pag nag-let go ka na, hindi mo man lang dapat isipin na balikan pa.
Guess who Jan invited to lunch at Manila Pen next week.
To my Grandma who I’ve only met once
