Full of Uncertainty, retake

This is directed to Patrick – you once commented on one of my entries titled “Full of Uncertainty“, dated September 13th, 2007. You said:

Ah… I remember the time when we ran into all those dead-ends, wrong turns, and difficult terrains but you know what? I kinda hoped that would happen because where’s the fun without any obstacles and challenges eh?

However the paths we choose make for the people that we are. Without these walks in life we get bored, tired and stagnant. We lose that spark that every human being has, that light, that life. Be who you want to be, walk where you want to walk, love who you want to love, and make life what you want to make it.” – Samantha L.

So what the hell happened between then and now?

Well first of all Pat, I hope you know if sometimes my words come across as ‘blunt’ and ‘harsh’, it’s not meant to hurt you. It is meant for me to share my feelings with you. Second, like Jason Ding, I want to understand you. That’s why I ask you questions, even ones you get mad about. Growing up, I learned to communicate my thoughts and feelings. You told me reading my blogs, it feels as though I have a lot on my mind and I say a crap load. It comes with practice. Third, I know you worry about… Read more »
