281. What are you willing to give up?

September 2014.
Common Balcony – Pandora After 80s, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong.

“The moment you realize that the person you care for has nothing intellectually or spiritually to offer you but a headache, you run. Away. Disengage. We’ve got a whole lot of other baggage to carry without a need to add on an unfulfilling relationship. Friendship or love relationship – it applies to both.” IMG_2689“I met someone, and this person was so consumed with greed and money. I was well on the way for my career – I was in the creative side of advertising – and I knew that in 10 years, I’d make it. I’d have the position, the house, the dog. But I also knew that if I continue on that path, I’d hate the person I’ll become. So I quit my job, sold everything I had in NZ, and started travelling. It’s only been 3 months and so many things have happened – good and bad. My faith in humanity has been restored many times but I’ve also met many assholes. I just want to make sure I don’t live a life of regrets.” – Zoe, a lady backpacker from NZ.

I couldn’t have had better conversations at a better timing. Uncanny. Every person we meet is an answer to our prayers. Verily, He knows best.

At the end of the day, what you’re willing to give up says as much as what you’re willing to put in.

Ah, gotta love connections in hostel common rooms (both human and Wifi. :P)

Lots of love,
