AUTOR’S NOTE: This might be my last post for a while, because I’ve got super exams coming up in a month. And what better way than bidding adieu than some sassy talking to your own self? But it’s okay, darlings. Sometimes, you’ve got to be your own Christmas Tree. Enjoy 🙂
“So you think I could get past the 90+ mark?”
Uh, love, I don’t know how to break it to you, but you’re no genius in Math. And the long dead scientists are probably crying in their graves because they have to go through the horror of their deaths all over again, at your tiny hands and the way they massacre equations, laws, you know, the works.
“But, people say that I am not half bad at English. In fact, they do appreciate my writing skills. Isn’t that something?”
Alright, I could agree that you’re fairly good at English. But what about those who are excellent and who, unlike your Highness, don’t have to wait around for months to have originality and creativity knocking at their brains and FINALLY write a piece that is decent enough to be remembered?
“Ouch. That hurt.”
I know it did, sweetheart, but you know how they say it- the truth isn’t the truth till it knocks the wind out of you. The sooner you accept that you’re no J.K Rowling, the better it’ll be for the both of us.
When aren’t I?
“When you imply that I have the potential to amount to nothing. Or when you mark every low point of mine as a failure. Sure, I am no J. K Rowling. But have you heard of a Kimaya Ingale?”
Yes, I have. Out of obligation rather than out of admiration, mind you, darling.
“Okay, what would it take for me to get you to shut up?”
Are we on a mission to list out all the things you cannot do? Because this list would take a long time, it would.
“Or it wouldn’t if you would just spare me all the back-answering.”
Okay. I’ll say it loud and clear- BELIEVING IN Y O U R S E L F. When no one else does it. Not needing others’ words to get you back up and brushing off the dust.
And why should you need others words when you’re supposed to be “good” at this? Aren’t you “good enough” for yourself? Don’t answer that. Of course, you aren’t, love, and that’s why you need me.
“I am better, actually. And now that I know what it is that I need you to keep you quiet, we might as well say our goodbyes now.”
*Laughter* What, you are going to start believing in yourself now so you could cut me off? Right. Let’s see you try.
“Oh, darling, but I guess, I just did. From now, till eternity.”
