"True to herself." "True to myself." We all have our own personal image that's dictated by others, one that's always off the mark. We wish to remain true to ourselves, but who gets to decide who we are as people?
People usually don't look back to see how far they've come while they're still walking. Of course, when they come to a standstill, the more progress they made, the more they feel betrayed by their expectations.
It's arrogant to think just saying things out loud is enough. Self-gratifying on the part of the speaker, and conceited on the part of the listener. You won't always come to an understanding by talking things out.
Exams are an opportunity to teach correctly the meaning of winning and losing, of strong and weak. Students soak up heaping helpings of successes and setbacks! Take in now what it means to win, what it means to lose!
Tests are a good thing. The knowledge gained from a night of cramming will be all but forgotten once you hit adulthood. And that's fine. The experience you gain through competition, having sharpened your skills and broadened your minds all under the same set of rules? That's the real treasure.
The important things are never far off, they're all around you. I always wanted to be "special". I thought my life'd finally have meaning if T was "special" to someone. But I didn't really need it. It's not what you have or what you can do. Just being born, living your life... Before you know it, you're already special to someone.
The truth is unattainable. It will always be shrouded in fog. Though you reach the murk and the gloom to grasp something, you have no means to know it is the truth. In which case, why...? What sense is there in yearning for the truth? Close your eyes. Lie to yourself. Live in blissful ignorance... it is a much smarter way to exist.
Thinking of you wherever you are. We pray for our sorrows to end, and hope that our hearts will blend. Now I will step forward to realize this wish. And who knows... starting a new journey may not be so hard, or maybe it has already begun. There are many worlds, but they share the same sky... one sky, one destiny.
Does losing prove that you are weak? Isn't losing difficult for all of you? A challenge where, after ending up on your hands and knees, you must see if you can stand up again? If you stay on your hands and knees, that proves that you are weak.
