Short Post: Dysfunctional Family and Giveaway Winner

 Hat: SM Dept Store | Ribbon and Clutch: Forever 21 
Dress: Clothes for the Goddess | Shoes: Debenham's

Lunch break is my favorite time of the day. This is when my colleagues and I gather in the pantry and get to talk about random topics about life. It makes me think about my life and the life of people around me, how fortunate/unfortunate I am to be living the life that I have and how much we differ/resemble other people. 


One lunch break we were talking about our families and one colleague opened up on how dysfunctional his family is. He turned out okay so I don't really think families or parents are to blame for how a person becomes. He is successful and is living a good life despite a confusing and dark childhood. He is a very cheerful person and has a very positive outlook in life. He may have grown in a dysfunctional environment but he took ownership of his destiny and made the person he wanted to become. 

Case in point: all families are dysfunctional at some degree. Some people are just better at hiding it and some people just don't want to be affected by it. We make our own lives and we choose our destinies. Some people turn out okay and live a good life because they chose it. They did not let their environment and their family circumstances affect how they want their life to turn out. They made a choice to be happy and be successful.

As mentioned above, everyone's families are dysfunctional at varying degrees. But we have the choice to let it affect our future or not. We have the choice to have a dysfunctional future or a bright and successful future.

    1. Thank you! Nothing good will come out of being negative so might as well just always look on the bright side of things.

  9. Great post! You're right, every family is dysfunctional to some degree. Sabi nga sa Perks Of Being A Wallflower: "We do not have the power to choose where we come from, but we can choose where to go from there."

    1. True! You can't choose where you come from but you have the power to choose your future. That book has so many life lessons that we should all keep in mind.

  11. You look great, and I agree with you; letting our environment affect is largely dependent on whether we want it to or not

  12. I agree with everything. Sometimes when we tend to lean on the negative things, it affects us in the long run. I always try to make something positive out of my situation, especially those matters concerning my family. We shouldn't be dictated by the way we were brought up. Parents are humans, too, and they make mistakes as much as we do. :)

    By the way, I love your outfit! So chic with all the black ensemble. The gold collar and cuffs accentuated it even more. I always adore the combination of these two colors on my wardrobe :D

    1. True! Our parents have done things that they wish they didn't do as well. That is part of life and part of being human. But as their children, we have the power to let it affect our future or not. We make our future. What happens in the future is a result of our decisions in the past - not by the decisions of other people.
