Look-up, Look-up :3
May mga oras kung kailan paulit-ulit nating babalikan at pagsisisihan yung mga pagkataon na minsan nating pinalagpas. Napakaraming
"what if’s". Mga kathang-isip na sitwasyong maaring naganap kung iba yung naging desisyon natin. Walang katapusang panghihinayang sa posibleng mas magandang epekto kung pinag-isipan lamang nating mabuti kung ano yung talagang gusto nating mangyari.
Madalas ito’y bunga ng takot. Takot na sumagal. Takot na masaktan. Takot na magkamali. Iniisip natin na ito ang mas makakabuti. Maaaring nakabuti nga para sa iba pero hindi sa ating sarili. Ang totoo, tayo yung gumawa ng sarili nating multo. Multo ng kalungkutan at pighati na patuloy na gagambala sa atin sa matagal na panahon.
Don’t let your beliefs change depending on whom you’re trying to impress.
“Why? I’m right! All those people who are chained here thinking that their reputations matter and that this little shit matters are so freaking shortsighted. Dude, what matters is if you’re happy. What matters is your future. What matters is that we get out of here in one piece. What matters is finding the truth of our own lives, not caring about what other people think is the truth of us.” – A. S. King, Ask the Passengers
It may sound like a cliché but this is probably one of the best books I’ve ever read. I am really moved. As simple as that. If I were to ask, King successfully delivered LGBT’s point of view in this book. Consequently, I understand them, more. The philosophies of the main character, Astrid were very rational. I agree to her that “nobody’s perfect”. Moreover, I also love the role of “Frank Socrates” and I will never forget WWSD (What Would Socrates Do).
I don’t have any plans to spoil anyone so I’ll just send my love instead. I am sending my love to Astrid as she carries on with her life and let herself out of the box. I am also sending my love to the author, A. S. King who makes all these realizations possible. And lastly, I am sending my love to all the readers of this book. <3 Motion is possible!
