BLOG SURF: Growing older
Looking back, I think I have improvised myself. Not bragging, but I realized have become more stronger, more adamant regarding my dreams, better at writing, better at organizing things and better at controlling my temperament.
I wondered skeptically when actors/actresses claimed they loved themselves more when they aged and now I guess I’ve understood what they meant.
The more I discover about myself, tinker things I am not satisfied with and accept things that cannot be changed, accept who I am, the more I am comfortable in my skin and love myself.
I have also accepted the demons in me. I try not to nurture them. I remember watching an anime series called “Fruits Basket” where the protagonists mother says, “People aren’t born with kind hearts.
When we’re born, all we have are desires for food and material things.
Selfish instincts, I guess. But she said that kindness is something that grows inside of each person’s body.
