[Truth #3]

***In one of my entries, I mentioned that I will be blogging about the ‘88 Important Truths I’ve Learned About Life‘ by David Cain.***

Truth Number 3: “If you are talking to someone you don’t know well, you may be talking to someone who knows way more about whatever you’re talking about than you do.”

It all boils down to humility. For me, it’s OKAY if you don’t know everything about a certain topic. Who does??? If you know anyone, let me know.

What is NOT OKAY is when you’re talking like a know-it-all with an ‘assholey’ attitude.

Always, when talking to someone new, ask them to talk about themselves. If you keep on doing all the talking–hello! Attention grabber much?

What is the art of conversation? Simple. Talking WITH someone–not TO someone. But that’s just me. I might be wrong–but I doubt it.

Happy weekend!

Truth number 2: “It is a hundred times more difficult to burn calories than to refrain from consuming them in the first place.

As you can SEE, I managed to gain 15-20lbs in two years. And every time I see this pic (below), I go into a minor case of depression.

I tried to exercise. TRIED. TRIED. But not as hard as others. I don’t have a very good explanation except this: I’m (exercise) lazy. My ideal exercise method is “The Jetsons Exercise”. So this truth is definitely for me!

I’m already losing the weight I gained. Just need to lose 10lbs more and I’m back to my old (light) self. BUT! I am not skipping meals. I eat 3 meals a day plus several snacks in between. I guess I’m just watching the ‘portions’ part of it.

[Truth #1] Marmelisms ~ June 6, 2012

In my previous entry, I mentioned that I will be blogging about the ‘88 Important Truths I’ve Learned About Life‘ by David Cain.

Here comes truth number 1: “You can’t change other people, and it’s rude to try.

Had a good laugh at this. When I was younger very young, I used to think that if the person loves you a lot, then that person will change for you. Most of the time, I got disappointed. Then again, I was VERY YOUNG and very naive. It was only when I was older that I realized that you should never try to change a person. Accept them for who they are. If you can’t stand who they are, then don’t force yourself to be with that person.

On the other hand, if someone wants to change and they ask for your help, then be the help they need. Support them. But don’t force them.

These days I laugh when I hear about couples fighting coz of this issue. Most women would think that if a guy loves them, he will change for her (stop smoking, get another job, stop collecting basketball cards, and etc) not realizing that the guy is hoping that she will just accept him for who he is.

This doesn’t just apply to romantic relationships. It applies to the family as well–even to our circle of friends.
