Entertainment wise, we are bounded by the logic underneath each movie or story what we seen and that creates the notion of how we should love and how we should be loved. It somewhat lead and molds us into a person that we are when we fall in love as we grow and as we mature. Entertainment media, and social networking sites also create different kinds of options of what kind of emotional mentality we should have.

Live limitless with caution. We all have the free will to choose what kind of life we would like to have, what kind of life we want to take, what kind of work or profession we want to pursue, and also a free will to choose the person that we want to be with.

At first, this is so cliche but when you were able to see the good things in not expecting anything, you will find your heart, your soul and your mind at peace. We often get hurt because we expect things from someone or to our partner and are holding on to their words. Their words became our shelter and implant in within ourselves but the thing is, since we expect to much from their words, we can’t see things on the other side. We may trust the person that love so that we our relationship could grow but always remember that everything is constant and everything change. It’s like setting yourself a boundary when to trust and to what extent can you trust. You may trust them wholeheartedly but do not expect. Expecting the worst may sound off to some but I tell you, it can save our heart from too much pain when things don’t go as what we expect. Expecting the worst is for brave heart with the soft heart.
Don’t let your emotions control you. Some people can’t help themselves but being stagnant to stick to the relationship that they have. Yes, that’s normal.

If situations upsets you, divert your to things that can be beneficial for you. It can be pursuing your set-aside goal, focusing more on your career, anything! Always be happy and positive despite for negative thoughts and emotion that you have. Always remember that being happy can protect your heart from pain and anger.
Stay positive and leave your past behind. Social media trolls may contain sad and bitter outlook in life. It is a collection of bad scenarios and illustrated but playful mind of an artist.
