Excuses are just excuses

What happens when someone came to you and said, " I've tried my best. I studied day and night but I still can't score!" Well, what would be your first impression? Firstly, he is a nuisance? Secondly, perhaps he has got nothing better to do and decided to blurt something out of the ordinary? Thirdly, any reasons that you can come up with. It is not a sin to utter such, perhaps nonsensical but logical sentences. Yes, you burn midnight oil everyday but perhaps, you lack of something. Commitment. Effort. Willpower. Whichever of these that you failed to cultivate will lead you nowhere from your starting point. It is just another circle, going one cycle after another. In the end, you obtain and achieve nothing but perhaps, you have wasted some of your time doing unproductive things. It is not unusual but common. People just lost interest in what they do, perhaps too many distractions in reality that brings their heart elsewhere instead of its rightful position. However, I personally think that those sentences are purely uttered out of unconscious mind. Not to be rude, those are just wrong. Totally unacceptable. After going through endless cycles of merry-go-round, you came back to a simple excuse. " I've tried my best. I studied day and night but I still can't score!"

No matter what you do, when you start giving excuses, that is when you stop moving forward.

For I am a human, you are nothing more than it

I held out my hands, trying reach for you, to reach for your problems; but sadly, I get nothing in return. The same attitude; the same expression I see will never change. How could I be of any help? Being apart of your lives allow me to ponder mine as well, seeking the more interesting section of the pie chart, and ignoring the maths of complicated reasoning. However, it is not a good reason to dump everything behind; and just go on, enjoying your life. I am not saying you should not enjoy, but learn to comprehend. Seek reasons behind every action. Nobody does something without a valid reasoning. It is just like 1 + 1 = 2. You do not argue, but you accept because there are reasons for it. I defy regulations, create my own rules, just to make sure, perhaps you would really understand that I am truly on your side. You took advantage but I could not be bothered much because I knew what was going to happen. It is just a matter of time. In the end, what you have lost is more than what you have gained. For me, I have gained and receive nothing but perhaps, somehow I felt a connection between us. Much more than a friend, blood-related perhaps, siblings to be exact. Well, at least I do not regret my actions. Learn from your mistakes because there is hardly second chance in this world.

"For I am a human, you are nothing more than it. Because we are both equal."
