I used to fear rejection because it hurts. No matter how confident you are about yourself, somehow it will still make you question your worth and capabilities. But after going through many rejections in life, I’ve decided to befriend it. To embrace it. To see the good in it.
When we’re too caught up in the pain and are blinded by the tears, we fail to see the blessing behind every rejection. It’s like talking to someone who would say things in your face. Or when you’re on a road trip, you’re so excited and expecting to lay your eyes on beautiful sceneries and then there’s the detour. You don’t have control over it but you must deal with it and move forward.
We can be sad, cry about it or even get mad. But after some time, we should learn to pick ourselves up, carry the lesson, gather strength and take risks again. Because rejection can be that friend who only wants the best for you. A friend who wants to make you realize that perhaps the one you wanted may not be right for you at the moment, or it may never be. As with anything or anyone in your life, if you’re not their cup of tea, set them free. The best is yet to come.
For those of you who want to get free bitcoin and are patient enough, then this post is for you. The amount you’ll get by doing the steps below may seem insignificant at first but hey, this is free! So if you’re interested, read on.
Almost everybody has mobile phones and if you don’t have a postpaid line like me, you’ll need to load your phone to make calls and texts. In the place where I’m residing, I would need to go to the nearest retail store to be able to load my phone and that would take me approximately 10 minutes. There were times that I needed to reply asap to text messages or I needed to call someone but unfortunately, I ran out of load.
Luckily, I stumbled upon Coins.PH and I decided to give it a try. When I started, Coins.PH only gave 5% discount whenever you buy cellphone loads but currently, they increased the discount to 10%. That means you’ll save 10% off your cellphone load and you no longer have to pay an additional fee unlike when you buy load through a retail store.
Because of this, I decided to sell loads to some of our neighbors too. They no longer have to go out of our village. Aside from the 10% discount that I’m getting for every load denomination, I also earn additional money because I charge them Php 2 per transaction. In the retail stores nearby, they are charging us Php 3 per transaction, so my neighbors still save Php 1 per load and it will only take them a few walks to our home. Definitely a win-win situation!
If you’re in the same situation as me or if there are a lot of people in your area needing to load their phones, you can try Coins.PH too.

One day I found myself longing to talk to a stranger
Someone who wouldn’t give a damn about what I’m going to say
And then I met you
A complete stranger from thousands of miles away
I had no intention of talking to you
Maybe you would ask why?
I got intimidated by your profile
I thought someone like you might not have time for someone like me
But then I was wrong
I was happy when I received your first ever message
That excitement of chatting with someone from the other side of the world
And with different time zone
I honestly don’t know why I’m writing this
But all I know is that
I’m really glad I met you
I love that I know of someone who doesn’t hold back
When he knows he can uplift someone with what he’s going to say
Most of the time I can’t frame my thoughts well
I can’t exactly tell you what I want to say
But this time I want to keep it as simple as possible
T H A N K Y O U
For being a positive impact on my life
For making me believe in myself again
For inspiring me to try to keep getting better
For letting me sing no matter how awkward it can sometimes get
I wouldn’t have posted that video on FB
If it weren’t for the encouraging words that you always give me
Maybe those are just small things for others or even for you
But for me, they mean so much
You may ask, “How did I do those things?”
Hmmm, I honestly don’t know too
But then again, I just want to thank you
For being the sunshine in my gloomy days just by simply being you…
I admit that I always pray but I haven’t read my bible for a very long time now. And today, I saw it on the altar and grabbed it. Upon opening, I saw this page from the book of Joshua chapter 1, and verse 5 was highlighted. Maybe I highlighted it before when I was still active in prayer meetings and bible study.
My bible was written in Tagalog but in English, the verse says, “No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
I stopped for a while and then I felt that God spoke to me today through that verse. I was really anxious for the past few weeks. I was worried about everything and at times paranoid for nothing. There were days when I wanted to speak to someone about what I was going through but I always ended up keeping things to myself. And most of the time I would just cry it out at night when I’m praying. He is always there whenever I have no one to turn to. And I love that I can talk to Him without the need to filter what I have to say because I know that He will understand where I’m coming from. Sometimes I would even question Him for allowing certain things to happen and why life can get really unfair. At times I would even get mad but He never fails to make me feel that He loves me despite everything. I can’t explain the feeling but as I pray and cry to Him, I would feel peace and warmth and it’s like He’s embracing me with so much love.
I’ve been an active member of a Catholic community before and served under the dance ministry but some things happened and it was like I turned my back on Him. I stopped serving and stopped going to church regularly. I’ve known the truth but still chose to live with lies. And this time that I decided to lift up to Him something that has caused me to go astray, He showed me Joshua 1:5. When I needed it the most, God reassured me that He is and will always be in control.
Some of us have a hard time believing that we are actually able to face our own pain. We have convinced ourselves that our pain is too deep, too frightening, something to avoid at all costs. Yet if we finally allow ourselves to feel the depth of that sadness and gently let it break our hearts, we may come to feel a great freedom, a genuine sense of release and peace, because we have finally stopped running away from ourselves and from the pain that lives within us.
I came across this excerpt from the book Legacy of the Heart: The Spiritual Advantage of a Painful Childhood by Wayne Muller and it really resonated with me. But this is not about my childhood, it was something that I experienced about a year ago.
For a week I was confused and totally lost. I would always cry myself to sleep and in the morning I would wish that I never woke up again. Yes… I know… I was pathetic. Yet, I needed to act like everything’s okay. I would put on a smile but deep inside I was so broken. I would keep myself busy trying to distract myself but always ended up feeling wasted.
I decided to write about this today because it was exactly a year ago when I tried to run away from my family because of my foolishness in love. My feelings really consumed me. I became stubborn and irrational that I didn’t think about what my family will feel. I left home and did something that I thought was right at that time. I was away from home for about a month. I decided to come back when I finally realized that the love of my family is enough. If someone dumped me, then I should just accept it, grieve, rise up again and move forward with my life.
It’s hard to move on from a failed decade-long relationship which almost ended up in marriage. But life will become harder if you will continue to insist yourself to someone who no longer shares the same vision or just simply not on the same page with you anymore. I know I’ve already done everything I can to save the relationship so I didn’t have regrets. A friend told me that I should thank my ex for saving me from a relationship that will be watered down in the end. I think it’s true. The right person will never give up on you and your relationship no matter how hard the circumstances can get.
Currently, I am completely comfortable with being single. I no longer waste my time worrying about someone not calling or texting me when he promised he would. I’m already used to waking up in the morning without a good morning text or in the evening, without a good night and I love you text. I can now do things on my own, enjoy going to places and meeting new people without wishing that he was there too. And that was very liberating!
I may not be fully healed yet but I know that I’m getting there. God will never allow things to happen if they aren’t for our best interest. For now, I just need to focus on myself to become a better version of me. Because I believe that God’s blessings will come upon us once we’re really ready to receive them.
