2020 Questions #1

These questions are from an Instagram story I watched and from these lists: one and two. I figured there’s no harm in answering another set of questions that will reveal my true self to the internet, correct?

Do you believe in destiny or you think we have control over our own lives?

I think we have control over our own lives. We make decisions left and right which ultimately lead us to our destiny.

Why is life so hard? Why do we make it so difficult for ourselves?

I think humans are just programmed to enjoy suffering and think that suffering is normal and should be expected. I know some people who look for “drama” or problems when everything is going too smoothly. They begin to ask, “Why is everything going so well?”

Why are people so mean?

I don’t think people are mean. I just think people sometimes don’t know what they want in life and when they see someone successful or doing something they think they like, they become mean and say things they don’t mean. Sometimes people are just confused and unhappy.

How do you relax yourself when you are having a hard time?

I watch K-dramas, do my skincare, cook, or read a book.

What’s something you have kept in the back of your mind but has recently resurfaced?

My brother, his girlfriend, and my mom. There’s too much drama on this one so I’ll skip it for another time.

How have you been? Have you been taking care of yourself?

To be honest, I’m a little bored and feeling suffocated from being in community quarantine. I’ve been working from home for the past two weeks and staying inside a condo is now starting to take it’s toll on me.

If on your last day, the person you became were to greet the person you could have become, what would the difference be?

Wow, I hope they’re the same person. I would like to think that who I am becoming and who I could become is the same person. I don’t like to think about the could have been’s that’s why I always do my best and think a million times before doing something. Some call it overthinking, I call it being careful. which I probably should do less of

If you didn’t have your job, money, nice clothes or things, who would you be? How would you define yourself?

I’m just a person who tries to be the best person she can be everyday. I’m a reflective, sensitive, and overthinking person. I’m not perfect but I try to improve as much as I can – cause we only have one life to live. I don’t want to step on anyone. I just want to live as peacefully as I can.

If you could talk to your younger self, would you tell them: “Don’t worry so much,” or “Try harder. Care more?”

I would say, do your best everyday and maximize all the opportunities you have. Looking back, I feel like I have lived a very privileged life and maybe I could have maximized it a bit more.

If social media didn’t exist, what would you do each day?

I guess the things I’d still do daily. I try my best to limit my social media time.

To keep it short and simple: I'm thirty+ years old. Still plenty young, but not as young as I used to be.

  1. If you didn’t have your job, money, nice clothes or things, who would you be? How would you define yourself? >>> I think, tindera ako sa palengke….or helper ng mekaniko….or simleng chismosang kapitbahay…

    Hope you are well Kat!
