Falling vs Staying

Falling in love is not a choice. To stay in love is.

Falling in love is not a choice. When you really fall for someone, there is no turning back. It's like magic,to be able to feel the most indescribable happiness and yet,heart pain.

Whereas, staying in love is a choice. When you face temptations or life circumstances that makes you doubt the love that you once felt, that is where you need to decide whether to stay or not.

I am in the stage where I need to make my decision ; to stay or to walk away. Surely, it is not easy. At one time, the decision of walking away is so strong, that I feel like I'm prepared to go through the break up process. Other time, I'm afraid that I may regret the decision I make just because of my temporary feeling.


Falling in love is easy. Staying in love is not.

20 cent #1

" Going to church doesn't make you a good person and people covered with tattoo on his body doesn't make him a bad person."

Exactly. Going to church regularly doesn't mean that you are good and just because those people with tattoos doesn't mean that they are bad. By all means, just don't simply judge a book by its cover.

And then, there's also this one kind of scenario - "Nama saja pigi sambayang tiap minggu, tapi kalau begosip, nda ingat dunia suda". 
[ Translation: Go to church every week but still talks bad behind people.  * more or less like that*]

My post is surely not to condemn those church-goers nor arguing their faith to God. This is just my 20 cents.

I am a church-goer myself; and yes, I gossip about people behind their back. The ugly truth is, I know it's wrong and  I've sinned but from time to time, I end up doing the very same thing. I am fully aware my actions contradict with what the Lord teaches us, that at times, I feel like I'm not worthy to accept Him in my life.

In church community itself, we see people with a lot of different characters and some, annoys you to death just by looking at them. Literally speaking.

But still,  for me, going to church is one of the thing that I look forward to every week.


There's this saying that if you do things repeatedly, it becomes  a habit and part of your routine. For me, going to church is not my habit nor my routine.

I feel a sense of joy going to the church. I feel secured, satisfied and blessed to be able to celebrate the mass. In times when everything seem to fall apart, going to church and pray gives me the healing and courage to get back on my feet.

Thus, don't let others judgement shaken your faith of going to the church and pray but above all, bear in mind, that church is no place displaying perfect people.
