Merry Christmas Donniella!

Dear Cupid,

2019 DDC Psychometricians
Me with the 2019 psychometricians of Davao Doctors College

Intelligent conversation, online or offline, is sexy. It is fun. It is quality. It is something to be remembered. In Hunger Games Trilogy, this is the kind of conversation that Katniss Everdeen feels when she is with Peeta Mellark or with Gale Hawthorne.

Truth to be told, the boundary lines were made the first day I laid my eyes on her. She gave me chills. Yes, I admitted to her she is my crush.

What have you done with my feelings, Cupid? The crush feeling grows. Love takes time to feel, the moment I have crossed our boundary lines. If the situation allows it, I can offer her my life. Love is real even it means letting go and my offer needs to stay in my imagination. She will stay as my special memory no matter what.

It is healthier for us this way. This 2019, there are three insightful and intelligent conversations I had (apart from the books I read of course). First with my psychiatrist, second with my boss and third was with her. Merry Christmas, Donniella. Take good care of her, Cupid.

Make her ambitions happen,
Dean

#Survivor Insights 271: Dean Almost Wins Island of The Idols – Finale Lesson of The Story

There is no reality. Life is about perception. Somehow in some ways, their perceptions of you define who they are. Their perceptions are their truth. Not yours. Your ability is limited to managing perception, not to control their interpretation. Their interpretation is theirs. Not yours. If it works on your advantage, the discussion is win-win. If it does not, it is no longer your mistake.

An almost win is not a win. You still lost the battle but never the war if you stay humble, accept the defeat as it is and move on. Resiliency is a gift you give to yourself.

Loyalty is tested every now and then. Loyalty makes no sense if you fail to be faithful along the way. Loyalty is the goal. Faithfulness is the process.
