[1: 1,357 of 10,000] I Shall Defend My Joy, So Should You

Gilbert on Delight

There are people who affects our lives too much that we let them dig into our minds and totally mess up our positivity.

There are times that my spirit cannot hold on to something strong that I vanish to oblivion.

I let self pity to take charge, I give in to sulking like I got robbed of a doll, or I let frustration and anger take control.

Those were the moments that I wanted to hide, and hopefully for those brief moments I get cradled like a baby.

But I am an adult, I am expected to be strong, independent, reliable, and when I grew weak, too vulnerable, all I can do is cry and wishing the bad feeling goes away.

The ultimate goal is to be at peace and joyful. I got to learn to ACCEPT that in imperfections and failures, I could easily recognised the magnificent and worthy. Or better yet as Jack Gilbert insisted, of all those times that we need to be a stubborn adult, it is when we needed to defend our joy amidst the crazy world.
