Say Something I'm Giving Up On You?

Know what's sadder than losing a fight? To lose someone we're fighting with.

What's worse than our heart broken to pieces by the one we love? To be heartbroken and alone.

There are people who are worth fighting for. In my translation, the priorities are:
#1 Family
#2 Future family
#3 A cause greater than ourselves. Greater than our lives, greater than our present times.
#4 Genuine friends
#5 Some intricate leather bags

Everyone got different priority in life. There's no saying one is right or another is wrong, because at the end of the day, everyone got a different kind of future that we wish to see.

I just find it very sad, the idea of 'giving up on people' :(

Even at my green ages, during my less-mature years with lesser capability to love, my giving up on some people who mattered the most back then still stick in my memory. It definitely wasn't a pleasant experience, but it teaches me a very important lesson.

Never give up on those who matter the most. It may be very painful the few seconds you get into fights, but it's okay. Endure. Stay present or stay away for a while if it helps to cool the heat down. Shape up your conviction to make it work, and NEVER, EVER, think of quitting. Stormy weather is a season that will pass. Persevere and trust that another, brighter season will come in its due time. Think of the good memories, plaster the happy moments vividly in your mind, stare at the pictures in your laptop, or anyway to remind you of the better times.

Basically, be proactive in recommitting and remembering and reminding yourself of the other party's good points and their loving moments. Don't let the hurt and the pain swallow your common sense. On the brighter note, if it hurts that much, it means you have loved that much.

And what's worse than living a heartache? To never have any, heartache, at all.

Imagine a hollow, empty heart with no one you truly love. Being loved and hurt is still so much better.




Say Something - A Great Big World ft. Christina Aguilera


Say something, I'm giving up on you
I'll be the one, if you want me to
Anywhere I would've followed you
Say something, I'm giving up on you

And I am feeling so small
It was over my head
I know nothing at all

And I will stumble and fall
I'm still learning to love
Just starting to crawl

Say something, I'm giving up on you
I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you
Anywhere I would've followed you
Say something, I'm giving up on you

And I will swallow my pride
You're the one that I love
And I'm saying goodbye

Say something, I'm giving up on you
And I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you
And anywhere I would've followed you
Say something, I'm giving up on you

Say something, I'm giving up on you
Say something...
