Entry: This is me, no one said you had to like it Sunday, March 12, 2006



Awhile ago, someone asked me, Hindi ka ba naooffend pag sinasabihan ka na maliit ka?

To me, it has the same effect as when someone asked me a few months back, Hindi ka ba naiinis dahil mahal mo sha at hindi ka nya mahal?

What do you think? I am only human after all.

If I was asked these questions a few years back, I would have answered differently than I would now. Truth is, my biggest insecurity in life is my height. And my biggest regret in life was losing the love that I thought I wanted.

But I've grown up in a lot of ways. I've learned to accept things that I couldn't change. I've learned to forgive myself for all the stupid things that I did. I've let a lot of things go. I've learned to laugh at myself and be comfortable with being just me. I don't have to impress anyone.

I first heard this song on the radio in my dad's car. It's called "Ugly" and I can totally relate to it.

When I was seven, they said I was strange
I noticed that my eyes and hair weren't the same
I asked my parents if I was okay
They said, "You're beautiful and that's the way
they show you that they wish they had your smile"
And so my confidence was up for awhile
I got real comfortable with my own style

There was a time when I felt like I cared
that I was shorter than everyone else
People made feel my life was unfair
So I did things that made me ashamed
Because I didn't know my body would change
I grew taller than them in more ways

People are all the same
And we only get judged by what we do
Personality reflects name
And if I'm ugly then so are you
So are you.

Anyway, I'm really not ugly. I'm just a little on the short side. So there. Nyahaha!

I don't really mind being this way, if you don't.

People should think about themselves first before they judge somebody else's trait. Petite is real cute... at kung pangalan mo pa ay Trish... Grabe na toh!!!! HUGZ... pakiss po! Mwah... At dahil di ko pa nakikita si Yshie, cute siya if she claims to be petite too. hehehe benefit of da "daw" ...

The height thing is like any other kind of physical characteristic - you notice it during first impressions, but afterwards it doesn't matter at all. It's like when you think a guy is uber cute at first, but then over time you cease to see the cuteness and start to treat him like anyone else (no exceptions! hehe), ^^
