Time as a realization tool...

Time flies when you don't want it to, no?

Just when you want it to drag a little longer, the next thing you know, the end of the week is already in your face. *sigh*

With all my problems and bad luck lately, I wish the days would go slow so as to enable me to do something with my life. I sometimes feel that I am not deserving of what I am going through right now. It isn't fair that I have to go through such misery when I have nothing but been good to most people in the past.

I also know that it ain't fair that I question God's wisdom but if only anyone of you knew me, you would know that I am someone whom friends can count on, anytime, all the time. And cliché as it may sound, when it is my time to be in need of help, I can't even count on one 'friend' to be there.

But that's how the world works, doesn't it? I'm far from naive but to finally know that the people I helped in the past couldn't be counted on pains me deeper than I could imagine. These are the same people I helped become better human beings and even paved way and helped them start their respective careers. I am not expecting any favors or repayments for what I have done; all I wanted was a little gratitude, especially when you're in need...

Even if I wanted time to go slow, it still went as fast as it could. But though I did not get my wish, it did allow me to recognize one simple truth; that humans are very much guided by power and friendships are tossed aside when one becomes more powerful than the other.

And even if time passed contrary to the way I wanted it to, it still helped me become a better person. And now that I know what to do the next time around, I am going to savor the powers that I’ll have, like I have never savored anything before…

Thank you time…
