I was there
when you first felt insignificant
and you broke down
‘What is so wrong with me?’
because no one would take you
out to some dance.
I was there
when you found out
that heart-break
feels more like
and you believed
you could never
get over that feeling.
I was there
when you dove into
all sorts of things
that could replace the feeling
of intimacy that you
felt you so lacked.
Maybe you didn’t notice,
but I was always there.
I was waiting on you
this entire time.
I’ve been loving you
and caring for you
and calling to you,
‘this way is better.’
I’ve been trying
and trying so hard
to make you understand
how much you mean to me.
I’ve been beside you
in every struggle and hardship,
‘you can get through this.’
And I will continue to do so,
because I love you.
And you can be sure
I will be there
when you finally realize
that true love looks less like a boy
and more like Me.

I’m going back to some wordier posts at http://jielynn.wordpress.com.

Tumblr has been fantastic the whole time..but the constant good posts that kept me reblogging and reblogging also took away what I wanted to call a space of my own. Call me an old-school blogger if u’d like. Haha, :D


The (500) Days of Summer attitude of ‘He wants you so bad’ seems attractive to some women and men, especially younger ones, but I would encourage anyone who has a crush on my character to watch it again and examine how selfish he is. He develops a mildly delusional obsession over a girl onto whom he projects all these fantasies. He thinks she’ll give his life meaning because he doesn’t care about much else going on in his life. A lot of boys and girls think their lives will have meaning if they find a partner who wants nothing else in life but them. That’s not healthy. That’s falling in love with the idea of a person, not the actual person.

Live in hope

I’ve been reminded on our ability to make things happen. As in, we can all do something about what we are facing in our lives right now.

If there are debts to pay off, we can work hard, save more and clear those bills bit by bit. They will eventually be paid off in full.

If there are flabby parts of the body that we are not satisfied with, we can be diligent and consistent in exercising. Sooner or later, those parts will be more toned and excess weight will be shed.

If we are facing problems in our relationships with people, we can too, be the ones to do something about it.

What I’m driving at is that no situation is without hope. At the very least, even if we cannot do much about the things that are going on in our lives, we can still change what’s on the inside - that is, our perspective.

Something can still be done. We need not be living in despair.



Probably my dream house?
