不舍得is a phase which I found cannot be expressed perfectly using the English vocabulary I know or shall I say, cannot be translated into English…Haha! There’s really an urgent need for me to improve my vocab I guess.   Is it “can’t bear”? Should it be “can’t stand”? No I guess… both mentioned are more to 不能忍受. Friends out there, let me know the correct word if u all know ya!  

Flipping through the dictionary, only I realize that there’s difference between 不舍得 and 舍不得不舍得is defined this way: 不愿意割舍;吝惜while the definition for 舍不得sounds like this: 很爱惜,不忍放弃或离开,不愿意使用或处置。  

I find myself kena attack by this feeling of  舍不得quite frequent… Some of the examples:-  

Every morning, I’m so 舍不得 my bed and my blanket and all my soft toys…they are just too sweet to be left…  

Planning to shift out, find a condo unit near my office (hopefully with swimming pool =p ), so that I can have more time to rest, to eliminate the frustration of being trapped in the never-ending traffic jam and I’VE SPENT TOO MUCH ON PETROL I GUESS But I just do not want to be alone, and I super 舍不得 my mom’s 阿妈靓汤and her warmth… even though she tends to nag too much…

And deep inside my heart, I know it is a rock solid fact that something has over, life has to move on, I just couldn’t help, I miss someone’s goodness very much… even though I myself also doubted whether or not the goodness really does exist…

Inside the glass bottle…

“I want to walk tall, believe in myself, have the courage to ask for what I want and need, and live a life that mattered. I want to wake up in the morning with a smile on my face and know that I am loved and that I belonged. I am desperate to feel worthy and I am hungry for the opportunity to live my fullest potential.” - modified from "The Dark Side of the Light Chasers" - Debbie Ford

Under the apple tree…

"If you are not spending all of your waking life in discontent, worry, anxiety, depression, despair, or consumed by other negative states; if you are able to enjoy simple things like listening to the sound of the rain or the wind; if you can see the beauty of clouds moving across the sky or be alone at times without feeling lonely or needing the mental stimulus of entertainment; if you find yourself treating a complete stranger with heartfelt kindness without wanting anything from him or her... it means that a space has opened up, no matter how briefly, in the otherwise incessant stream of thinking that is the human mind." - A New Earth, by Eckhart Tolle

Inspiring quotes!

If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other? (God in "Evan Almighthy")
“To love another person is to see the face of God.” ― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain
Aggie: "But what about the people who hurt you? Don't you ever want to make them suffer?" Norman Babcock: "Well, yeah, but what good would that do? You think just because there's bad people that there's no good ones either? I thought the same thing for a while. But there's always someone out there for you. Somewhere." - Paranorman
“You're only here for a short visit. Don't hurry, don't worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.” by Walter Hagen
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, body totally worn out and screaming "WOOOHOOOO what a ride!" - by anonymous
When you travel, it’s not like you take a part of each place away with you; rather, it’s as if you leave a part of yourself there, like a part of you forever belongs to that place – the time, the people, and the things you saw; and over time, it gets burned deeper into your soul - by anonymous
