On Looking Back

"Wala ka talagang aasahan sa hinaharap 
kung lingon ka ng lingon 
sa kahapon."

I feel really dismayed at people who keep on "reminiscing" about anything from their past - especially the painful ones. I'm reminded of what Fr. Joel said on his talk during the SFC Metro Manila Leader's Assembly last Saturday, and it goes something like this:
'Pag ang biro ay unang beses nating narinig natatawa tayo, pero pag inulit ay parang wala na lang. Ang mga bagay naman na nakakasakit sa atin, paborito nating ulit-ulitin kahit hindi na maganda. Bakit kaya di na lang natin ulit-ulitin ang biro, at least nakakatuwa pa.'

I am very much annoyed.


Hindi na nakakatuwa ang aking mga nababasa, dahil sobra na.
Paubos na ang aking pasensya.
Ni hindi man lang maalala ang isang mahalagang petsa.
Binibiro ba ako ng tadhana?
Natatawa ka ba?

  1. Natamaan ako dito, hahaha. I love reminiscing. I blog so I can remember, and have something to read about what had happened. Pero tanga lang ang taong nagre-reminisce ng mga masasakit na nangyari. Masochist much?

  2. But sometimes, for some people, reminiscing the painful experiences they have had make them feel alive. Sad, but true.
