Seoul cured my Soul

rosie quino
 Left Philippines with
... a confused soul
... a shattered heart, &
... a revengeful mind.

 A month of fighting that personal battle drained me.
It was eating me whole slowly.
Gradually transforming me.
Feels like I am close to becoming a monster.

I am naturally crazy.
How much more if I'll become a beast?
Can you imagine a way too crazy monster? Hahaha!

I can laugh about it now.
I am over it.
Not completely healed yet.
But I am getting there.

Seoul gave me the time, space, & diversion I badly need.
Her beauty & rich culture made me realize there's more beauty in this world.
Amidst her modern infrastructures, lies her well-preserved glorious past.
Her hospitable & warm people made me realize there's more goodness in this world.

For the love of myself, I decided to bounce back.
I will never let that "other woman" get the best of me.
Never will I ever stoop down to her level.
I fought in a classy & educated way as much as I could.
I won't allow her to put to waste what my parents sacrificed to raise me well.
She is just a spec of dust in this universe.

Seoul, you are my therapy.
You played a great role in my life.
For that, you earned a special chamber in my ventricle.
Thank you!

Returned home with
... a clearer mind even if I don't know what the future brings.
... a greater appreciation of life, family, & friends
... and most importantly, a deeper love for myself.

Will blog on the travel soon.
