Hello and welcome to the Round Up – Week 12 post for Quote Quest.
This week we have the the very lovely Tom from LovedYouALongTime as our round up guest <3
SassySubDaily – To Unlearn The Asian Way
“I walk around pretending to smile, but I’m truly hurting inside”
This by Sassy C really hit me, how we have to hide our true feelings and lives from our family and friends.
I can’t comprehend the the pressures of living in the Asian culture but I do understand the expectations of parents and what they think is the right thing for us. We shouldn’t have to feel that love only comes with following their expectations, it should be unconditional. I also loved the Californication reference, I loved that show!
Victoria Blisse – Burn and Unlearn
“Because I am hot
I am interesting
And worth the time”
“I am divine, darling and I will unlearn
I loved this poem, it starts with negativity about body image but carries on with positivity and confidence reflecting self worth and encourages others to do so too. We are all worth it and we must rejoice in ourselves.
HappyComeLucky – So many things to unlearn
I really identified with what Honey wrote.
I have had similar feelings my whole life, and still do.
Trying to fit in, wanting to be invisible, feeling responsible for things.
“It was always my fault in my head because it was me that wasn’t good enough and they had just been having to put up with me.”
Honey has worked hard to unlearn the insecurities that made her feel like this and has come through it with self worth and positivity.
“We all have to continue to work on believing affirmations and compliments”
I am going to save this and work on myself to overcome similar feelings.
