Today here in the Philippines celabrates the feast of the Black Nazarene. This is on every news this morning. It is a Catholic Tradition of Devotion to the Relic. Well I am not going to further elaborate about this one for those who might read this that didn’t know but I encourage you to research about it and understand it on your own. But I just want to point out something. As some of you may know that here in the Philippines, the majority of beliefs is about Christianity and It is compose of different denominations such as Roman Catholic which has the large number of population, then Born Again Christians,Protestants, Iglesia ni Cristo and so on the rest of some different Christian Groups. Muslims holds ten percent of the population which makes it the second largest religion in our country. And every year since we have different kind of traditions and beliefs of each religious group and since Filipinos are very active when it comes to social media. Outrage of Opinions, statements and arguments blows out about this event which only leads to more hostile conversations and just lost of respect with each other. Composing Facebook status or tweets just to expound that they are better than everyone else. Ever since then I always hope that we should not be entitled ourselves as a better or smarter person just because we are part of not only in a certain religious group but as well as in political party, local organizations and even Fandoms. We have to understand that though there are some common things that we are agreeing with, still we are different human beings with different perceptions of our reality. Instead of being triggered on whatever you are disagreeing with, learn how to just respect. A simple respect. That’s it.
Back to work for me and here comes the possibility of having urges in anxiety or panic attacks again. As I walk going to the office, with my earphones listening to music to somehow calm myself, the music of the band Hale (a Filipino rock band) comes along with their song “Blue Sky”. Well the song really contradicts the weather. The sky is actually gray as you can see on the photo. I eventually relate it to my condition. Blue Sky for me is kind of representation of what I always look forward to everyday where the Sun shines and you can see colors everywhere in full vibrant, so calming and relaxing, but it seems that those gray and thick clouds covers the blue sky that I wanted to. In the lyrics as it plays said that “There will always be a blue sky waiting tomorrow full of hope”. Yes hope is what i hold on to in every gloomy weather that I face. Hoping for a blue sky always.
