A pair of used but good shoe was sold at $100,000.00 because it happened to be owned by someone named Michael Jordan.
The worth of something is based on who owned it in the past, those pair of shoe wouldn’t be sold for a very high price if it wasn’t owned by Michael Jordan.
Now ask yourself, who owns you?
I remember why I had this high standard in love, I was in high school when I heard someone say “ay ang choosy, akala mo kung sinong kagandahan” to someone he doesn’t even truly know, it really marked in my mind that guys see it that way so I promised myself na “hindi magiging ganda ang batayan ng pagpili” that I had to prove them wrong.
But don’t get me wrong, hindi ako magmamaganda just to prove a point, I have to set my own standards in love also because at the end of the day pipiliin ko yung taong kanino ako magsu-submit. I just realized, isn’t it ironic that girls have all the right in the world to chose whom they are going to submit (Ephesians 5:22).
Pipili ka. Oo girl, ikaw ang pipili.
With the kind of society that we have, madalang na lang daw ang mga Maria Clara, para sa akin naman, every woman have their own maria Clara inside of them, she just need to be awaken.
Then, what do we mean by Maria Clara?
Is it okay na magmura? na maging comfortable sa green jokes?
Everything is permissible but not everything is beneficial (1 Corinthians 10:23).
Hindi ka masamang tao just because you cracked green jokes and say bad words, but the question is does it benefit you? May naitutulong ba? Does it make you a better person? if yes then I think you are on the track. But I bet your answer is no, hindi naman talaga nakakatulong, baka kasi nakasanayan mo na lang and maybe that is what the society calls “IN”.
Girls, if this is your basis of happiness, self satisfaction and if you think this is how the world would accept you then I think you are barking at the wrong tree. You should always decide for yourself on what is right and wrong, you should never let other people nor this society dictates your happiness.
I repeat, hindi ka masamang tao and you have all the chance in the world to make it right. God is not just a God of second chances, but He is a God of many chances. You woke up today with your heart still beating because you are given another chance, make it count.
I understand that when you reach the age of 25 and up there is this pressure of not having a lifetime partner, “may mali ba sa akin?” ” Pangit ba ako?” “Mahirap ba akong mahalin?”.
Have you asked yourself that maybe wala naman talagang mali sayo, hindi ka naman pangit at hindi ka naman mahirap mahalin, sadyang madali ka lang makuha that’s why no guy took you seriously.
Girls, remember that guys pursue if they are challenged, if there’s a wall that they need to break and a heart that they need to melt because their masculinity is being tested.
Pahirapan mo naman girl, you are a gem and don’t you forget that. Hindi ka simpleng bato na kahit saan makukuha niya. Isa kang diamante na kailangan niyang paghirapan, because anything that is worth having is definitely worth the effort. Kapag alam niya na pinaghirapan ka niyang makuha hindi ka niya agad agad maitatapon.
Uso na daw kasi yung babae ang nanliligaw at yung nagbibigay ng motibo, girl “hindi lahat ng uso wasto”. Isipin mo na lang na kung ikaw ang nanligaw dapat ikaw ang magdadala ng bag niya, you have to pay for your meal and you have to get his “yes”. Hindi ka ganun kababaw girl. Ikaw dapat ang pinagbubuhat ng bag, ikaw dapat ang inililibre sa date at sine (hindi naman sa lahat ng oras ha, learn to give also, hindi ka pa niya responsibilidad at hindi pa siya ang bumubuhay sayo) at ikaw dapat ang magsasambit ng mga katagang “OO SINASAGOT NA KITA” and not the other way around.
Now, how can you determine your value?
Personally, I saw my worth not in the eyes of other people but in the eyes of my loving father in heaven, He loves me and that’s enough reason for me to know “I am worth it”.
