screw my one post per week. I have something to say and I'll say it now. forgive me if it seems incoherent.
Seeing all my friends move on or move forward in life is good. I'm so glad that they are.
Just like them, I'm moving forward too.
I hope that we can move forward in life together. I really hope so.
Anyhow, I hope that all of us can become stronger and fight for whatever we dream of. I hope that we can be happy in the life we lead.
I hope I can be there for them just like how they have been there for me.
As for friendships, when we find friends that are dear to us and can accept us for who we are, we'll appreciate them.
And so, I'll appreciate every friend I have.
I will do as what I have always done. Be nice, be supporting and be me.
That's the only way to make new friends, keep and reconnect with old ones.
To be sincere is the best way.
I'm thankful for having great friends.
I know I'm not alone. for the first time,in a long time.
For the first time, after a long time, I get to experience the friendships that anime characters experience.
And it's nice.
I guess, we are all growing up. Bit by bit.
I like that.
And I can hope that we can grow together and that our friendships would last.
But if it doesn't.
I'll still understand.
True friends are friends that are there for you, accepts you for who you are and believes in you even when no one believes in you (including yourself).
I can only be glad that I have that.
when you find someone that accepts you,
when you learn to accept yourself,
when you stop pretending and be you,
you will never ever go back to pretending.
because it's simply liberating to be you and to have people still stand by you.
thank you to everyone who accepts me for me.
Anyhow, I also have anime to thank. For saving me from a dark pit and for inspiring me.
Law of Ueki.
Ueki, thank you for reminding me of what is important.
Thank you for motivating me. For telling me that, sometimes, you fail despite doing your best. But failing isn't the end of the world and it isn't the end of the road. There's always next time.
Thank you for telling me that you only have the right to cry over something if you tried your best.
Thank you for showing the characters getting up, despite the painful fall.
Thank you for making them humans, with issues and them, triumphing over it.
Thank you for showing that everyone has dreams and that dreams don't die.
So, right now, I'm standing up against everyone who thought I was a freak for loving anime or for loving whatever I love. Say it again. And say it slowly, in front of me.
I DARE YOU.
I have fallen in love with Japan's culture. And that's the reason why I love anime and Japan.
One day, I'll go to Japan. Definitely.
I just want to experience their culture and their world.
If you find me, more crazy on anime or Japan or whatever it is I love, it's not that I have changed.
It's just that, I choose to express what I love more.
I'm done with hiding or being what I'm not.
