Anything But Down


But you don't bring me anything but down
You don't bring me anything but down
You don't bring me anything but down
When you come 'round








Top: H&M | Pajama Pants: Zara | Shoes: Tyler | Bag: YSL Cabas Chyc





A casual and juxtaposed look with the structure of peplum and the looseness of the pajama pants. What tied the look together? The laser cut satin design of my peplum top surprisingly mixed well with the geometric pattern of my pants from Zara which was such a great outfit for movie night out. I am starting to love blue and it is probably because of my YSL Cabas Chyc bag which I absolutely love and am obsessing over.



 

Sorry for the lag of posts and the short absence. I have not been online for the past week as I was celebrating my birthday in the weirdest place ever- THE HOSPITAL! I got A WHOLE LOT OF HATE and people who brought me down via my ask.fm which was quite a familiar pattern given someone, somewhere always wishes me dead whenever I am going to go under the knife. It's funny really but I was not as affected as the first time around. Probably because third time's the charm or probably I've prepared for the backlash emotionally but all was well and I am healing quite well now.





I was doing a whole lot of reading there and I stumbled upon this quote by Marion Anderson, and it goes, "As long as you keep a person down, some part of you has to be down there to hold her down, so it means you can not soar as you otherwise might." Powerful words. Interesting thought though, isn't it? When we keep someone--- anyone---down, we have to put time, energy and effort in keeping them there. That is probably why I never really take on hating on someone as my agenda for the day. 
There's so much more to live for. 

 

We may not even be aware of the drain we are putting on ourselves. And it can be anyone we are keeping down- an employee, a coworker a neighbor, a friend, an enemy- anyone. And we can be keeping them down in subtle and not so subtle ways- not knowing their differences, not recognizing their potential, gossiping about them, believing they are inferior, not as smart as we are, not as creative, not as loving, not savvy- the list of possibilities goes on and on. In fact, we can be very creative and devious in the way we keep others down. We can even do it with groups of people, usually those like us.

Whoever it is, and in whatever way we do it, this whole process, if I might say so, of keeping others down costs us greatly in all aspects of our lives. Is it worth it? I doubt it.
