Midnight Thoughts 04: Silver Lining

Disclaimer: I m pretty sleepy already but I wanted to post something. Forgive me if there are grammar errrors. Might correct them tomorrow morning.

Another day ended and a new day unfolds. The past few days had been an emotional roller coaster ride and it drained me mentally. Work, for me, is no longer fun since Covid-19 happened. I missed being busy at this time of the year when I was supposed to be preparing for our company summer outing and team building. Instead, they were replaced by chaos and toxicity, I (almost) cannot take it anymore.

For me to get rid of the negativity, I choose to look forward to when all of this will end. I look forward to long drives with my friends, to birthday parties we have to celebrate, to company events we need to participate in, and to go home to my family at our hometown.

Also, what keeps me sane is to remain thankful for what I have right now as most people are now lacking resources and are being deprived of means to survive. Plus, I am still able to get by through the help of some people who are still appreciative in the midst of this pandemic.

Hmmm. There are so many things we really really really miss to do. All of this however, is temporary. I kept praying to God that He continuously help all of us to end this war.

I am praying for everyone’s health and safety wherever you are. You are included in my prayers.

How to Heal from a Broken Heart

preview

A friend of mine is in a serious heartbreak situation right now. Few nights ago, we had an [unplanned] dinner together and that’s where everything flowed. All the pain she felt is part of the process but at the end of the day, we need to realize that no matter how painful and how crushed our heart is, we must always learn to go back to the One who never ceased to love and be with us in all our joys and sorrows… and that is our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

I, myself, have my own share of heartbreaks. Heartbreaks from a first love, from an almost lover, from somebody who walked away, or a loss of a loved one. However, these heartbreaks, no matter how painful they got, have something in store for us – a lesson, a learning experience.

The Definitive Introvert Type Test

Part of my usual FB feed scrolling is randomly taking online quizzes. Just now, a friend shared one named “The Definitive 25 Question Introvert Type Test”. Out of curiosity, I took the test.

In this test, you are given situational statements and if you are in that situation, you have to rate yourself from 1 (Not At All) to 4 (Very Much). The link says you may get any of the following results:

I gave away the answers that first popped in my mind. And I got, “The Protector” Introvert Type.

So, what is “The Protector” Introvert Type?

“This introvert type is quite unique, as many of your personality qualities defy the definition of your individual traits. Though you’re deeply emotional, you have excellent analytical abilities; though introverted, you have well-developed people skills and robust social relationships; and though you are somewhat conservative, you are often receptive to change and new ideas. You are a true altruist, meeting kindness with kindness-in-excess and engaging the work and people you believe in with enthusiasm and generosity! You can literally save the world!”

I don’t know if I totally agree to that – well, maybe I agreed at around 90% of it.

Are you an introvert? Try taking the quiz HERE. Let me know if we got the same type or which type you got.
