Loser Like Me   2 comments

 “It is a truth universally acknowledged that when one part of your life starts going okay, another falls spectacularly to pieces. “

-Bridget Jones

Bridget managed to sum up what I feel right now. At one point, this day showed an immense amount of potential on this one goal that I’m aiming. However, this same goal produced another nerve-wracking, dream-shattering scenario. This kind of awkward feeling seems to happen more often that it should have.

Why oh why does it always have to be this way? Usually, when someone has a problem, people say it’s just a bump on the road. When the same person encounters another problem, they’ll say “If you managed to get out of the previous one, then you”ll have no problem getting out of this one.” But what happens when there’s a follow up problem again? It’s not even de ja vu anymore, but more of “Get used to it! You’re life really sucks!”

So in a nutshell, I’m getting used to it. Loser much. Of course it wasn’t indicated in the loser handbook that I’m not allowed to be happy every now and then so I’m still thankful that there are people who never fails to cheer me up, especially my inaanak Jat and apo Freddie.  🙂

The road to contentment is acceptance. So I guess I better get started driving towards that one. Funny that when a loser starts to embrace himself and learns to accept his fate, that’s when he starts to be a winner. So while being a loser reflects some negative connotations, it’s not the end of the world for us. Cheers to all losers out there!
