What people told me today that gave me some level of comfort

My mom: “So Bonita if I were you, I would thank God for taking away Trader. Anyway if he either comes back by himself or by you calling him again, thank God for changing Trader and making him strong enough to be with you.

But now you should be steadfast. Hold your head up with confidence. You should be ready to face Trader if you ever see him again. Don’t ever let him hurt you again. Your future is bright and you are how we brought you up.

A friend: “I think he made a worse choice than day trading by ending it with you…”

Another friend: “Yeah, I think you’ll attract the good ones. Don’t worry…”

Thank you God for giving me the comfort I need when I need it the most. Love love!


About Tina

I'm a forgetful person. But I think a lot. Every day, a lot of thoughts enter my head. That's why this blog came to be: first, to keep my memories alive through the years, and two, to actually see how I and my thoughts have changed. Please note that I seldom draft or edit my posts. Sometimes, if I'm not careful, I offend some of you, my readers. And while I apologize for making you feel uncomfortable, I am not sorry for being honest or for making well-intentioned mistakes. I will however be the first to admit if I change my mind. Hence, do read and proceed with caution. My life is as colorful and as boring as you make it. I complain many days, but offer some encouragement in others. Life is fluid, it changes. So keep the positives and throw away the negatives, and I do hope that at the end of the day, you will enjoy reading the blog and leaving comments here and there if my posts touches you. Happy reading!

    Bonita, I’ve been reading your blog for quite some time now and I never left a comment but I just wanted to say that I really enjoy reading your blog since a very long time ago, like woah…back when you were in TW!!! I guess I felt kinda related back then when I just went abroad to study. Back then, you inspired me a lot, something about this independent, strong n positive woman, who’s very passionate about both work/study and life and knows how to enjoy it and keep it all balanced; that i really liked and wanted to be like:)
    this breakup really shocked me, because i didnt see it coming:S! but i know for sure that you are still that strong woman, you can get through this and find someone better than the last :D! “Add oil!” 🙂

    Btw, your mom always gives the best advice or word of comfort ever:O!

    Thank you so so much V. I change between weak and strong these days so forgive me for being too sentimental. Am glad that you can relate. I hope there are more women like us! As you can see though, it’s tough at the moment. I am – on my rare moments – insecure. I am afraid of not finding that love again. I question myself a lot these days. I can’t cook (which means I am not at peace). I cry at random places.

    So yes, I am human too. I get hurt, real hurt. But I must be strong. Trader is no longer there to support me. I have to stand by my own. Time can only tell, but oh, how slow time flies!

    Dear Bonita, I stumbled onto your blog while searching for feedback about the HKUST MBA.

    As a fellow ambitious, career-oriented female who also harbors similar vulnerabilities re love and men, your posts really resonated with me. Thank you for sharing and for letting me know that I’m not alone in all of this!

    All the best!!

    Do you have a spam issue on this website; I also am a blogger, and I was curious about your situation; we
    have created some nice procedures and we are looking to trade strategies with others, please shoot me an e-mail if interested.

  7. Its such as you learn my thoughts! You seem to grasp so much approximately this, such
    as you wrote the e-book in it or something. I feel that you simply can do with a few % to drive the message
    home a bit, however other than that, this is fantastic blog.
    A great read. I’ll definitely be back.
