Seeking Comfort

Is the final week of my Foundation Studies, hence the lack of updates. Because I know people out there in the world is too busy to even concern. Because I know so many would have asked me “How are you?” but forgot that there are answers other than “I’m fine, thank you”.

I get fed up of listening to all the “how are you(S)”. Because whenever I wanted to rant a little bout my tight schedule, there will be replies like “you think you’re busy? I’ve only got 4 hours of sleep last night”. Then I will end up standing in the position to concern bout that poor girl who had only 4 hours of sleep, when, myself, didn’t slept the entire night just to help out in everywhere I could. Instead of opening my heart to tell them I need concern as well, I’m giving them all that I can. I know they will appreciate, but I also come to notice that I needed comfort as well.

Am I your daily emergency call operator? Sometimes I clarified that I needed to get my hands off my own work before I could come lend you a hand, but it seemed so easy to reach me, you forgot. Due to all my replies to the needy, I screwed my attendance so many times.

When I approach and pour my heart to you, I wanted encouragement in return. My ears didn’t wish to listen to all the “what you should do, what you should not do”. I come to seek comfort, but you ended up ruining everything. So, what happened to all the “I promise I’ll be there to listen to you”. Yeah, you did listened, but maybe next time I should make you promise to not throw bombs toward me when I tried to speak.

You wouldn’t want me to come smack you on your face when you seek concern from me, therefore learn not to do the same to me.

Decided to do this online, so you guys could click and read and go, because I know you will. But in fact, I’ve expected for more, a reply or two, or a comfy hug, or a few sentences of concern, or a goodnight kiss from daddy, or the tiny things that you used to do for me which you have comfortably forgotten. In case you didn’t notice, these little sources of encouragement could really spice up my energy level.

Here are some examples (of encouragement) I can show,

sim says:
why weary ar? belle belle… (concern)
weary belle belle says:
haih, my brain full of exam thingy (sharing)
and people come in to me and asked me this and that, as if they don’t know i also need to study up my part (rant)
sim says:

weary belle belle says:

sim says:

weary belle belle says:
Sometimes I clarified that I needed to get my hands off my own work before I could go lend them a hand, but it seemed so easy to reach me, they forgot. (share more)
sim says:
It is normal for them to forgot coz is not their concern (human nature), but is our part to continue to learn to draw line. love love (provide advise & concern at same time)
weary belle belle says:
haha i know love love (agree)
sim says:
so dun be discourage by them forgetting stuff… from here, we learned to be stronger for God~ (accountable)

Here’s another one.

D a n i e l says:

weary belle belle says:

weary belle belle says:

D a n i e l says:

See, it’s so easy!

Communication is two way; you talk to me, you expect for a respond. Love is not a one way ticket; I love you, and I wished that you will love me as much.

Proverbs 15:1 A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.

Nevertheless, I will continue to do whatever I can to lend a helping hand. I will continue to allow you to come to me. I will continue to seek encouragement. And I will always be remembered to keep on loving you.

Proverbs 17:17 A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.

    remember oh, no chilli until exam ends!


  3. Hi Sis,

    Proud of you being Open and sharing how you felt. I believe God sent you many Angels to provide you comfort and love.

    Study life is real Hectic especially during exams period there goes PK and Evelyn and Shiau Fong and our Sis Belle. Keep on fighting that you’ll certainly be rewarded in the eyes of the Lord.

    My Motto this year: Is to be Champions of God

    Thus I shall Toil day and night so that I can be a model to follow. I fall short of that sometime…and thus get discourage…but life is more than just that…right?

    1Timothy 4:11
    But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of faith.

    Yup! Fight on the GOOD fight. I know you’ll do well.

    I’m really glad to see you grow in church and being so joyfull.

    Hope to see you in Church and we’ll fellowship K. Then I can lend you my shoulder. He he he he he….tell me earlier so that I can bring extra Baju to Change (Tease)

    Love you!


  4. 사랑합니다!

  5. Eve: hehe remember the extra baju!! together we fight² yeah!
