Quick Thoughts About Change

Posted on 24 June 2008 by Liza Mae V.

“I have come to grips with the reality that
some people never change
though they try for the sake of another
true self comes to surface eventually.
True change can only happen when one realizes the need for change.

Breaking it Down … Day 4 of Seperation

Posted on 25 April 2008 by Liza Mae V.

Everytime I think of him my heart breaks all over again …

This time apart is a good one.  It makes me see the situations from the outside in.  It makes me forgot about all the anger I had inside and really just get down to the facts.  Emotions get in the way of reality and makes us make poor choices.  Positivity is what I need.  For example, it is better to question, “Can I live with him?” rather than asking, “Can I live without him?”  The second question is a selfish one because it brings out other negative feelings of, “I can’t be alone”, “Can I picture him with someone else?”, and it really doesn’t question the validity of the relationship.  For the first question “Can I live with him”, it questions the relationship with the person, “Are WE really compatible?”

Hrmmm … that brings me to an even better question – “Can we live with each other?”

In the relationship, I can place the blame on him but really I have to take a really close look at myself and why I let these issues happen.  Yes he has his insecurities but why did I let his insecurities change the way I am?  I adjusted to him and in the end, I lost a part of me.  I realize now that this isn’t healthy in a relationship.  There is nothing wrong with adjusting to the person you are with but when you lose yourself in the process and have that built-up resentment … it definitely is not healthy.  This was my mistake.  I changed for the wrong reasons.

I didn’t realize this but people around me did.  They saw the changes in me that they did not admire but they did not speak about till now.  Maybe due to the fear that I would shun them out – but true friends tell you what you do not want to hear but need to hear it.

New Beginning of an Engineer

Posted on 13 May 2007 by Liza Mae V.

So I’ve finally succeeded in this game of job searching.  I’ve landed a career job and my working life starts tomorrow.

Yesterday was my last day at SDM and it was a bitter sweet moment.  I thought I would feel completely happy that I was leaving but, I’ve had more than 8 years of memories there, and I will miss many of my co-workers.  Many said words of inspiration and appraised me for my work ethics.  I was actually kind of shocked and dumbfounded.  They even got me a nice watch to remember them by.  I thought it was a nice gesture.

So that chapter of my life has ended and a new one has opened.  I’m putting my education to good use and I’m fairly excited and nervous all at the same time.  I thank everyone who was there every step of the way with their support, especially G.  He helped through times of despair and failings.  He gave me the advice that I needed to keep going and persevere.  Without him, I think I would be lost and still job searching.  I’m so reluctant to have the opportunity to be with someone who encourages me and is willing to help me stay focused.  There is no denying that he is the number one reason why I even try.  I love him and he is the reason for me to believe in love, because he is my love.

So time to kick off the running shoes and uniform, and it is time to throw on the heels and suit …
