The Past

Some people feel like they don't deserve love. They walk away quietly into empty spaces, trying to close the gaps of the past - Christopher McCandless


Agnes 21 January 2009 at 00:41  

I don't know what to say. I hope Mr. McCandless is wrong :-)

Keshi 21 January 2009 at 05:03  

beautiful quote!

I hv done that...still doing it maybe. My Past is very much a big part of my Present. However much I try to shed it and move on, it refuses to leave. The demons of yesterday dont die as long as Im alive.

I dont deserve love...cos I never got it.


Just call me 'A' 21 January 2009 at 08:11  

i think if someone walks 'away' from love..the gap never closes.

WarmSunshine 21 January 2009 at 10:37  

Maybe he's right...

Nice selection... thanks for charing this!

Such people should go get a dog (like a Labrador retriever) home. They'll "feel" very different.

Anyday Color 21 January 2009 at 12:57  

It is unfortunate...but true.

Some people have to stop and realize that they are not doing themselves any favors by basically brainwashing themselves into believing they do not deserve love.

Everyone deserves it, no matter what their past may contain.

Thanks for the advice. The funny thing is, before I saw your post, I did exactly what you said, telling my roommate to behave himself.

My GF doesn't reciprocate the feelings, talked to her about it last night. She reassured me, and honestly it was extremely good to hear.

But as for now, I'm just gonna keep on relaxing and being "chill"

thanks again for the advice

I too hope he is wrong. But you as well as I know deep inside that he is not. Sad!

Thanks, lady for remembering. What happened to your blog, Agnes? Did you get someone to retrieve it? Get back on the blogspace soon. You are being missed, I must tell you.


Talking To My Soul 21 January 2009 at 15:29  


Hey, I know you still are doing it, Kesh. Time you came back.

But I would not like you to say "I dont deserve love...cos I never got it." Of course you do and you would find out sooner or later in life.

Come back to the present and let's go "hunting" for hope and love. May be they are on their way and will find us.

*smilez now*

Talking To My Soul 21 January 2009 at 15:37  


You are right, A. It's difficult to close the gaps then. But what if love chooses to walk away?

Thanks for dropping by, dear.


Talking To My Soul 21 January 2009 at 15:47  


I'm sure McCandless is right. What he said may not be liked by one and all though.

Thanks, dear girl. Where's you these days?


Talking To My Soul 21 January 2009 at 15:49  


Ouuchhh! It did hurt, Crooner. The Labrador did bite, I guess.

Howz you, mate?


Talking To My Soul 21 January 2009 at 15:52  


You are spot on, man. I guess we all deserve love no matter what.


Talking To My Soul 21 January 2009 at 15:54  


Heyyy, you did great by finding it out. Trust yourself and trust your feelings. That's what matters.

My wishes to you both. Enjoy the togetherness.


Keshi 22 January 2009 at 04:14  

aww ty Soul!

when I said I never got love, I thought real hard before saying it.

I dunno if I'd ever 'hunt' for love...cos thats not me. Im not sure if I hv to desperately LOOK for something like LOVE.

if u know wut I mean :)


Talking To My Soul 22 January 2009 at 04:33  


I understand, Kesh. Last time when I replied to your post "A Thousand Miles..." didn't I say I will have something on it in my next one and this precisely was that.

By hunting hope and love, I did not mean hunting literally. All I meant was let's go find ourselves. There is hope. And there is love. I am so sure about it. They will find us. Trust me. And you are one who gives people hope, you can't talk about hopelessness.


Keshi 22 January 2009 at 06:29  

hey Soul I knew that this post was abt wut u mentioned in my loneliness post. tnxx this was lovely!

I know wut u mean. But it seems that I was not made for it...u know, romance n all. Nothing goes right for me in that respect. Every guy I met so far is either physically attracted to me or just out to kill time. Im not so sure there's something called TRUE LOVE out there. Maybe there is...but not for someone like me. Im not disappointed..just bored out of my wits hehe ;-)

**Trust me. And you are one who gives people hope, you can't talk about hopelessness.

that may be right, but a tree gives shade to ppl even as it's leaves burn...


Talking To My Soul 22 January 2009 at 12:56  


The tree must last, Kesh. So that it can grow bigger, spread its branches wide to give shade to many. To be able to do that, the tree must love itself,preserve its leaves. I am sure there are many who care for the tree though they don't say it. Trust yourself and trust them. You are the forever Diva...err...Viva

Keshi 23 January 2009 at 08:47  

awww I dunno if Im all that, but Im happy making others happy :) I really am.

tnxx Soul!


Talking To My Soul 23 January 2009 at 12:48  


Be what you are. Always.


Just call me 'A' 23 January 2009 at 23:18've been tagged :)

Talking To My Soul 24 January 2009 at 00:01  


Oh my my! I am so bad at tags. Always found a way to run away from being tagged. Seems you caught hold of me. Will try my best to do whatever needs to be done.


Agnes 24 January 2009 at 07:00  

Well, I set up a new blog. Clicking on my name will take you there :-)

Oh, and no. You DO look familiar...

Talking To My Soul 25 January 2009 at 00:14  


Gotcha, Agnes.

Visited your new blog space. It's as elegant as the old one was. One hiccup though. It does not register in my blog roll. Hence I had to put it in my I Read section.



Ani 26 January 2009 at 03:20  

awww thats a lovely quote :)

hnnmm can somehow relate to it.. :(

Lena 26 January 2009 at 14:21  

unfortunately, it is true... but then i guess some people just try to hide from being hurt.

Talking To My Soul 27 January 2009 at 19:03  


Well, I am glad you found it lovely. Look up for some previous comments. Some are angry. Ha! Ha!

Thanks for dropping by, Ani.


Talking To My Soul 27 January 2009 at 19:05  


I am sure they do. It's in the human nature, I guess.

Thanks, Lena.


Agnes 28 January 2009 at 03:56  

Oh thanks! I love being in the "I read" section :-)))

I haven't even got around to making a blogroll... what a shame.

I came here to wish you an awesome republic day holiday :-) I think it's Chinese new year and Australia day as well.

Talking To My Soul 28 January 2009 at 13:56  


Thanks, lady. I had a rocking R-Day, in a dense forest which I went exploring. Reason why I have been able to comment on your new post.


Keshi 29 January 2009 at 08:38  

hey u, hows ya? :)


Talking To My Soul 29 January 2009 at 16:45  


Heyy how are you, Kesh? You did not sound good on your new post, did ya?

I am like I always was. So far so good.

Do tell me.


Keshi 30 January 2009 at 05:56

tnxx Soul!


Talking To My Soul 30 January 2009 at 12:46  


I will take your words on the face value but...

Do take care. Thanks.
