سخّفتم حتى أحلامنا – You Ridiculed Even Our Dreams

October 15th 2012, my first post on WordPress. The time I was blogging alone thinking that this is even blogging! This post was written and published in 2010 in the Lebanese Newspaper Annahar (Nahar Ashahab), it’s a political article about our internal problems and issues, some days they are better and some days they are worse. https://huguetteantoun.com/2012/10/15/%d8%b3%d8%ae%d9%91%d9%81%d8%aa%d9%85-%d8%ad%d8%aa%d9%89-%d8%a3%d8%ad%d9%84%d8%a7%d9%85%d9%86%d8%a7/ So even if […]

Facts vs. Perspectives

Nothing is annoying more than the people who think they are right and you are wrong! They don’t accept the other point of views and perspectives; moreover they fail to distinguish pure facts from perspectives, which is extremely annoying and immature and make their lives and other lives harder! How? I’m sure you know that many things are just perspectives; […]

Age Is Not A Number!

When you encounter a person way younger than you, smart and seems perfect, and you start trying to convince yourself that age doesn’t matter, it’s just a number, for any kind of relationship: romantic, casual or friendship. Just remember yourself when you were 10 years younger and tell me how age is just a number? Tell me that ten years […]

What Are You Grateful For?

I’m grateful I’m alive; we bury thousands every day! I’m grateful for my good health; it’s a huge blessing and a golden crown that only people with diseases can see. I’m grateful all my senses are perfect; I can taste this coffee and enjoy its smell! I can enjoy the lovely scents that mean a lot to me! I’m grateful […]

Unfair…

We give our attention, love, devotion or support…sometimes our all,  to people that eventually use us and hurt us deeply….That when we meet people that deserve our devotion, love and support, we are too broken, too afraid to even look at them! And this so unfair for them and for us… H.A – Written in December 2018

Some People….

You must realize that some people are in this world only to help you discover at some point that you are still able to dream or feel not more…they will not be a part of your life, maybe they only exist in your imagination…And that’s OK… Written in October 2017

We Don’t Get To Choose

I hurt so many people unintentionally or maybe because I was hurt. As many people hurt me unintentionally or because they are hurt. This is can’t be stopped or prevented. We love whom we love, we like whom we like and we don’t get to choose the chemistry, the connection, the telepathy and the attraction. The world would be pain-free if we get to choose! At some point, we will all be treated the same way we treated another person, so we know the feeling very well but we can’t do anything about it. Fair enough, I guess. Written in October 2017

Keep Focusing

معظم الناس لا يهمها سوى تحطيمك عليك أن تحافظ على تركيزك متوجهاً نحو أهدافك لا أحد سواك مسؤول عن وصولك إلى أهدافك بل أكثر من ذلك، الجميع سيحاول كل ما بوسعه لتضليلك وعرقلة طريقك وحملك على تغيير اتجاه سيرك وفي غالبية الأوقات ترى نفسك مقتنعاً بما يقولونه ومغيراً مسارك، الأمر المحزن والمؤسف الذي يؤدّي إلى تخليك عن أحلامك رويداً رويداً والإستسلام إلى الحياة العادية واالمملة التي فرضت عليك أحياناً حتى ظننت أنها الحياة الوحيدة المتوفرة والمسموحة January 2019

Mutual Relationships

All relationships should be mutual…otherwise just retreat. Some people just like to receive care / admiration / respect / even simple greetings without the intention of giving them back, or to simply be kind enough to treat you the same way or even a bit close. You must know that these people seek fans and followers not acquaintances, if you’re a fan or follower then no problem, it’s your call and your life and no harm of that. But many people, including me, are unable to follow…they believe in mutual respect and trust…they believe in reciprocation so they just retreat and keep their distance without judging or criticizing. Everybody is free to act as they want as we are free to react the way it suits us as well. I mean unless you’re one of my idols in life or some very big star (which I hardly care), I’m not seeking to be your follower or fan, I’m trying to build a relationship, create a bond and if it’s not mutual, I just retreat silently.

Judging…

Looking back and tell yourself you were stupid, I should have done this and not that is judging yourself the same way you judge others when you criticize without knowing the people circumstances, what they are going through, what’s their story….you are only a watcher, a spectator from afar and you’re not in the middle of the situation, so having an opinion about their behavior and actions is just judging. Same case when you look back now, while you are sitting, has nothing to do, with no stress, you watch what happened in your head and judge yourself. You just can’t take your mature self, your comfortable and stress-free self, to the past and say why I did this and not that! It’s so useless, so wrong and unfair to you as it is unfair to others as well. Regret the past is the stupidest thing you can ever do. You can just see if you can learn from your previous actions and improve not more. Written in November 2017

Kindness….

Whatever you do in life, whether you learn something new every year, you have BA, master, many certificates and high level educations, buy new stuff, buy branded clothes, hi-tech electronics and stuff, whether you are super smart and beautiful…You will find that someone else just did it, or someone is better than you or like you….someone has invented things you thought about, opened businesses you wanted to have, you feel that there is a lot of everything, too much competition, too much information, too much things…you feel that your ideas or feelings are outdated, you are so left behind, many have been there, did what you wanted to do….there is too much of everything….except kindness, it is so so few… being kind and nice will always be creative! And it’s never outdated. Just be kind and expect nothing in return… When I go back and remember all the people that were in my life, that never forget about me despite the distance and time….I find only one reason: I was nice! They didn’t care if I was smart, and I wasn’t rich nor famous…I had nothing to give…but I was kind! Something I lost maybe years later, I’ve become more rigid and intimidating…because I couldn’t handle the heavy burden of being alone in a world full of hatred, hypocrisy and fake people…I was standing alone and I felt a huge responsibility, a lot of pressure! I wasn’t that strong so […]
