Promoting My Comments into Posts! Part 5

Do you remember this idea I have started months ago? When I thought my comments are worth publishing as separate posts, especially when your comments are underestimated and they receive a big like without even a thank you?
Some bloggers still act the same but anyway I’m not saving my comments anymore, I still have plenty from the time I started blogging, where I spent plenty of my time reading and interacting. You can check the 4 previous parts if you want:
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4

And the winners for part 5 are:

1- On gratitude and pursuing our dreams:

“They want something more meaningful, but they don’t pursue it because they don’t want to lose what they have now or they don’t really know what they want.”

This is the case of most people I guess, and then the fear that we might not be grateful of what we have but at the same time the fear to not succeed and then lose everything!
But there is also something very real that if we really want something badly, we would have made more efforts, or probably we do want it badly but we are terrified to do something so we convince ourselves that we are luckier than many people and that we should be grateful and satisfied and so…We give examples of people that tried and failed…etc…
This struggle between: “this is God will” and “NO it’s me, I haven’t tried enough”
But there’s a fact that people who realize their dreams and chase their passions are happier of course and those people never give up because they know exactly what they want and I have lot of respect for these people.

We have lot of things to be grateful for but we often forget them! Because most people look at what they don’t have and suffer instead of focusing on what they have! Therefore this is a vicious circle, they’ll always be unhappy even if they had what they want, because they’ll be wanting something else.
I mean if they are not satisfied with whom they are, they will not be content with what they have! Moreover how they know they’ll be content when they have it? And they will not crave more and envy more?
Gratitude is a blessing and you should embrace each blessing you have otherwise you will never be satisfied.

2- On Avoiding people:

I believe we all avoided people at certain point and we still do! Sometimes for silly reasons but we just do it.

I’m usually sociable and I love to meet new people (something that has decreased a bit with time) but in some occasions, I remember I avoided people because I was not so confident to start the conversation and I kept thinking why I did that! Nothing is wrong with me! But it happened.
Then I avoided people that love to ask many questions (especially relatives), and from my point of view, when we know that we’re not happy where we are and we didn’t achieve our goals as we wished and dreamed, we don’t want anyone to remind us that we didn’t!

But when we’re so happy in our life, we will take the initiative and speak to people even if they didn’t notice us or simply ignored us because we don’t care what they might think or say or ask.

3- On Saving Others:

It’s painfully true especially when we discover that it’s not our job to save people because it’s their job only, but despite we still suffer from seeing them drowning sometimes and they are too stubborn to even take our hand!
Yes you can intervene if the other party is allowing you to, and if you can help it would be great! But at the end if the person is rejecting help or not helping them-selves, our intervention is useless!

4- On Misunderstanding

Misunderstanding is a big problem, I rather people hate me than misunderstand me and this is something we can’t really control, you spend your lifetime with people and they still misunderstand you, doesn’t mean there’s right and wrong, just they are not compatible together.
And the more you grow up, the more you understand this and you stick to people that understand you and you even stop making efforts, people will only hear what they want to hear except of course some small category of people that actually try to listen and understand but even if, chemistry and how people click without any effort will always be priceless.

Thank you for reading and hope you enjoyed 😊
Your comments and thoughts are always welcome 💕

  1. I always enjoy your posts, and you are so creative.
    I reflected on this being misunderstood … gosh it’s a bad feeling and can create a lot of unrest with someone…
    Thank you for sharing.

    1. Thank you dear for stopping by 😊 yes it’s really hard when you keep seeing white and the other person sees it black…no solution for this from my perspective
      Appreciate your kind interaction 😊❤

  2. I can certainly relate with #2. i failed terribly in something recently and there are people who love to remind me of that, so avoiding is really the best possible way to go. Except it’s hard when relatives are involved. Part of life I guess!😂🙄

    1. Thank you Steve for reading and for your comment 🙂 Yes I know what you mean and it’s the same here I guess when I avoid relatives and as well! It’s harder but I manage except in occasions like marriage or else, you can’t escape them 🙄🙄🤔

  3. These are beautiful 😍😍. Especially the first one. I could really relate to that. Always finding myself on the edge between those two things. 😣
    I agree on the 4th one too.
    Great post 💙💙💙

  4. Agree wih all points.Gratitude is surely the best thing.
    Yes, we all have avoided people at some point. I don’t mind avoiding people who don’t care about you. But I wish and will try my best that I would never avoid someone who cares about me.
    3rd one…✔
    I always wonder how some people just don’t understand you even if they know you well and have been with you from a long time. But there are some people with whom you have a natural tuning, even on first meeting it seems that we know them from a long time.
    Nice post with superb thoughts. ..thats nice idea to do a post👍

    1. Thank you Sohanpreet for this lovely interaction 😊 glad you loved the idea and thoughts as well
      I too don’t like to avoid people that care genuinely but they are so few
      Well it’s like everything in this life, we don’t know why we love this and that and why we get along with some people while we don’t with others despite the efforts made!
      Exactly this natural tuning is priceless so I believe when we make an effort then something is not really right
      Thank you again for your time and appreciation 🙏🏻😊💕

  5. Oh, a great comeback 😊🤗
    This fear to not succeed or to lose everything is really awful and can so much limit a person! Very difficult to surpass but when we manage to overcome this fear, I guess our life really starts!
    I believe if we really want something we will get it at any cost! Sometimes I think I don’t really want something if I don’t get it, and in the back of my mind I know it…Nothing can stop us! Look at how good we are in destroying this world! Who can stop us? No one!
    So yes, we can achieve anything!
    Most of the time is like this: we want something, we get it and then we look at the others and we are not satisfied anymore with what we have and we change our mind and we want something else, probably what the others have…but wait? What did you want from the beginning? Now you have it! Why you don’t want it anymore? So strange people we are! I don’t understand why we are always looking at what we don’t have instead of being grateful of what we have!
    Happiness is really a choice! And I chose to be happy! I wish everyone will chose to be happy!
    Honestly, I avoid people even if I’m proud of myself! I simply consider it too much waste of time to explain my choices! Because I consider nowadays people’s favorite thing to do is to judge, if you’re right or if you’re wrong, based on their opinion…but honestly I don’t care! So I guess is easier to just avoid them!
    If I have the possibility I always like to help the others with everything I can but if they don’t want to accept it, their loss, what to do?
    I’m not sure people misunderstand me, I think they understand it very well but they don’t like it, so it’s easier to say I misunderstood you…😂😂😂 yes, right!
    Hope you’re enjoying your free day 🤗🤗🌸🌸🧸🧸💕💕

    1. Thank you dear Riby for your sweet words and for the addition to the post 😊
      As you said we are so good at destroying and hurting so we might pursue our passions as well!
      We often forget how badly we wanted something after we have it! It’s really a bad human habit, very bad actually
      I also hope many will choose to be happy despite everything, for me happiness is a very big word at least until now
      I got your point about avoiding people, maybe it’s better I just stated my point of view about avoiding people
      It’s their loss yes but when they are very dear people, it hurts so much
      I don’t make effort anymore to understand people or make them understand me , after a very long experience it’s whether we click or we don’t and we can always have the minimum relationship and understanding with boundaries that’s it
      I agree some people understand and they dont like 😂 most of them I guess
      Thank you dear so much for your time and lovely interaction 🤗🤗💕💕🧸🧸🧸

      1. Is very bad really to forget how much we wanted it and now that we have it doesn’t matter anymore because we already want something else…😒
        My hubby is always telling me to follow my dreams but not forget to enjoy the journey….the journey that we have in following our dreams is important as much as the dream itself! Because we are strange people and sometimes when we reach our dreams, we feel is not enough anymore…and thence start pushing again…
        I wish you that you’ll find your happiness soon 🤗🤗🤗🤗
        I know it hurts especially with dear people but from my experience I’ve learned that just because we consider them dear people, they feel the right to step over….a very bad move…
        I guess we will never understand people…even if it happens very often to wonder why? how? they can act like this?…in the end I know is a question without answer….
        Hope you reached home safely! Enjoy the rest of the day and mentally prepare yourself for tomorrow 🤪🤪😉😉 (just kidding 🙈)

      2. Your hubby is so right and it’s really about the journey and about each moment we live because everything can change and our emotions can change constantly…
        Thank you for you wishes dear 🤗🤗
        Some people tend to use a good relationship, and it’s unfortunate, some people don’t know their limits…And I stopped asking why, I just retreat and keep my distance
        Home yes and did come cleaning since I have nobody to help me now :/ And f*** work 😁😁😁🤪🤪🤪
        Sweet dreams 🤗🤗🤗💕💕🧸🧸🧸🧸

      3. Remember that happiness is a choice :)🤗🤗🤗💕💕🧸🧸🧸🧸
        Yes, unfortunately some people don’t have any limits even if they know is not right what they do, they still do it…:(
        Oh house cleaning…sigh…Where is your helper? Still in vacation?
        Hope you had a great night sleep! Morning now! Time to work 😁😁😁🤪🤪🤪
        Have a great day dear 🤗🤗🤗💕💕🧸🧸🧸🧸

      4. Yes it is, it is but hard to explain some things, that’s it 🙂
        This is life and will always be this way, we need to choose what to allow and what to not allow I guess
        She left the country for good haha I need to find another one and until then, I need to clean 😊
        Yes it was a good night sleep and now at work, still didn’t ruin my mood by speaking with some people here hahaha
        Have a great week ahead 🤗🤗🤗💕💕🧸🧸🧸🧸

      5. I know 🙂
        Oh my, she left the country? Great! 🙂 Then in the meantime, you have some home duties 🙂
        Ok, that’s a great start 🙂
        Have a great week ahead too 🤗🤗🤗💕💕🧸🧸🧸🧸
        Keep your mood 🤗🤗🤗💕💕🧸🧸🧸🧸

      6. Yes here in Lebanon, you rarely find Lebanese doing the cleaning thing, we use the services of foreign people, many Lebanese are racists they call them servants or they belittle them..anyway not all of us are like this! Mostly they are from Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Sri Lanka and Philippine…The wealthy families have sometimes 2 girls not 1, they make the papers and she lives in the house…(they show off sometimes because Philippine is better than Sri Lanka for an example, which is so ugly and racist) Some girls decide to work per hour as the woman she used to help me…You can hardly find Lebanese women doing the house work except the not so wealthy or even poor (now most of us are poor after they eliminated the medium class)
        but they can always bring someone per hour instead of doing papers and pay a lot
        Sorry but had to give you some idea how things work here 🙂 we are racists hahah
        Enjoy your week as well, mood is good hahaa🤗🤗🤗💕💕🧸🧸🧸🧸

      7. I said I go to bad and here I am again reading 🙈🙈
        Oh even there are the Philippine helpers? Here is full also and is very common…nowadays they don’t ask you if you have a maid, they ask you how many do you have? 🤣🤣🤣
        But same situation, some of them don’t treat them well…😟😟😟😟 awful people…😒😒😒
        Here I don’t think can have by hour…I would love too, to help me with the house works so that I can at least blog in peace 🤣🤣🤣
        Yes, here actually people say are welcoming all races but is only a facade…🙈🙈🙈

      8. hahaah Oh my! You need me to shout or what? 🤣🤣
        Oh then it’s not only here! Here also not all treated well for sure and yes having help so you can blog will be great 😂 yesterday I lost few hours from my perspective but glad i had time to prepare some posts
        this is an hypocrite world! Everywhere they are hypocrite
        Hope you slept now hahahah🤗🤗🤗🤗💕💕💕💕🧸🧸🧸🧸🧸

      9. Yes, unfortunately people are shitty everywhere 🤨
        Yes, home cleaning is waste of time and I’ll prefer having that time for me to work a little bit but hey, one need to do what need to do right? One thing I know for sure: I can’t stand dirt, so I must clean my house! Luckily is small 😂😂
        Wish you a wonderful day 🤗🤗🧸🧸🌸🌸💕💕🎉🎊

      10. Oh yes we must do what has to be done😌
        Luckily I also live in studio otherwise it’s a mess😂
        Enjoy your afternoon now 🤗🤗🤗💕💕💕🧸🧸🧸

  6. No 2. Avoiding people. You know what Huggy, I used to do this all of the time, especially when I was younger, simply because of my lack of confidence (What do I say to them!!!!) As I grew up I actually went out of my way to talk to people, but some of them blatantly avoid me. Probably because of a lack of confidence. Now, I’ve learnt to read body language, so if they don’t want to talk or interact then I simply say hello and walk on. Good post Huggy 😊👍😎 Hope you’re keeping well

    1. Thank you John 😊 hope you are well too!
      Yes I did it many times for confidence issues and also many people avoided me as well
      You’re right we can always tell and act accordingly 👍
      Hope you had some vacation or so 😊😌

      1. We certainly can tell. If I’m in a mischievous mood I’ll make a point of deliberately talking to them just to keep them there 😊 I’m a little bit naughty sometimes 😂

  7. Hi Huguette! ❤️ Totally love your blog! 😍😍😍

    By the way, I nominated you earlier for the SUNSHINE BLOGGER AWARD! Thanks for adding sunshine to my life! ☀️❤️🌻

    1. Hello Yeka and thank you so much for your kind nomination and words as well 😊😊💕 I will check the post, I was on vacation and I’m still trying to catch up ❤ 😊

      1. Oh sure Huguette! Take your sweet time …. simply wanted to thank you for being sunshine to me! ☀️❤️🌻

  8. You are here! I am very happy!
    Some times I think I am luckier than other peop!If we have a source we can help the needy who are eligible! At anytime misunderstanding will occur and maturity will make sure that you understanding!

    1. Thank you Suni 😊 yes basically I’m back
      Appreciate your time to read and comment and yes providing help when we can is great!
      even if mature some people just are not compatible together that’s it but we can always respect but not necessarily build relationships that’s it 🙂
      Thank you dear Suni 😊💕

  9. This is very cool idea to convert comments into a post. Sometimes the comments we get makes more sense than the post itself & then you feel like you should’ve added this point too😁 (Has happened with me)

    1. Thank you for stopping by and your kind interaction 😁 yes exactly responding to posts is different than writing a post, we respond better sometimes 🙂 Thank you for reading 😁

  10. Hi Huguette! 🙂 I was not there and obviously can’t read all your old posts, but this post is a source where i can find the topics that you have covered so far and your insight and beautiful comments on it. Coming to the latest, First one on gratitude and pursuing dreams, – it is well said in short and so neat by you on first line, well that covers the entire content in short. On avoiding people, certainly at a point we all will be avoided but dont avoid the unavoidable, and do it today coz we never knew what tomorrow have it for us. On saving others, do the needful to who are in need because the need will know what they need in real and will be grateful for that. mis understanding itself says they missed understanding 😉 it is voluntary, sometime involuntary basically the product manufactured that way. Well another wonderful post. Enjoyed reading it 😉

    1. Thank you Simon 😊 I appreciate your time really and respect so much 🙏🏻🙏🏻 I will try to revive some old posts from time to time 👍
      Exactly in avoiding people we never know indeed what tomorrow will bring
      If we can we must definitely help
      And well said on missed understanding 👍😁
      Thank you again and have a great day 😊😊

  11. I love every one of these but hands down on misunderstanding. Hate it to bits. I had many issues with this with my husband at the beginning of our relationship, not because we’re incompatible. We’re opposite attracts but our start was full of rocky misunderstanding because of culture. We come from completely different culture thus created so much misunderstanding, but once we worked it out it’s great. Have a great weekend Hug ❤

    1. Yes the circle is getting smaller day after day
      The more we get older the more we can’t tolerate things we tolerated before 👍
      Appreciate your time to read and comment 😊💕
