A Reflection on Pride


Well, let me start this (it’s always hard for me to start) by telling you that I’m not into blogging really. I just needed an outlet to let out all my contained feelings as of that moment. I started posting in this site last month, I tried to make it look nice for myself (I wasn’t really expecting someone would be reading them!) then started putting into words what I feel. That’s it! But this is not what I reflected on.

Earlier today I was really flattered when I checked on my mobile phone and saw the wordpress notification and that I received a comment from a certified blogger (of course! Not someone like me). I read his comments then immediately checked his page as well. I didn’t start the reading; instead I was scanning through titles (I crave for titles!!) Then there’s this one that caught my attention (because it’s Korean!) and started reading “Kamsahamnida”, thank you in English.

Wow! I guess this one’s longer than my previous posts. Oh well, to make this one shorter than it should be. Here it goes, that blogger and I had a little chit chat, and he mentioned that he has no pride that’s why he is not pretentious (this made me think few things, big time!).

I reflected on that statement of him; because I am amused of how honest and bold he is to write everything without sugar coating. Then later on I came into a realization that it’s because he wrote everything out of pure innocence from his emotions. I had to reflect on this! I really do. Primarily because I have issues with my pride and because of that I can’t write what is supposed to be written (my feelings, experiences and my nonsense stuffs!).  This page was originally created so that I can just express everything, rants, grudges, love, doubt and all. But what happened recently was that, when I started typing with my fingers shaking from the intensity of what I am feeling, right before I publish it, I tell myself oopps!! (Then I started to calm down) Review! Re-read and refine your words, I tell myself. So, this blog doesn’t serve its purpose since the day I got conscious of how I speak my mind (most of the time exaggerated and just exaggerated!).

Though my posts before this one were all true to what I feel, however, they were all constructed with finesse that they would come out nice and soft toned (though that’s really me, but in a little more exaggerated tone!). Thanks to my new Korean-American blogger friend. I got to reflect on this and be back to where I really started, to speak my mind and heart. Have a great day!

Check the blogger I’m referring to.

  1. If you can’t speak your mind and your heart on this platform, where else could you? I think that you should speak whatever is on your mind in whatever language you choose. Then people can choose to appreciate your post or not!! I like reading your blogs, so just keep doing what works for you!

    1. You got me on that! You are right, whether others would appreciate it or not, what matters is that I am able to express myself. At least, to lessen the burden of just keeping it for myself..😊 thank you for this one, I really needed it..😉

    1. Exactly! this is ours and whether they appreciate it or not, what’s important is that we were able to let it all out.
      I’ve thought of this! before anyone could give it to you, you should be able to give it to yourself. You are your number one reader, before everyone else, that’s what is important. Write what your heart shouts.
