You are one of a kind

I’m so glad I don’t have a dopplegänger, a lookalike. I just couldn’t handle another me. If there was someone who looked like me, they wouldn’t be like me. They would probably be totally the opposite. If I saw someone who looked like me, it would feel creepy. Maybe if it was my twin, it would feel different because then I’ve seen myself from birth. If it’s a stranger it would be really awkward. I’m not really confident when it comes to my looks. I don’t even like looking myself in the mirror. I hope there wouldn’t be someone like me because then I wouldn’t be one of a kind. Everyone is unique in some way and not just me.

For example, no one will ever replace my mother because no one is like her. Someone can be a bit like her but they will never be her. The same with anyone. You can never fill the void with another person because they’re not like that person. Confusing? Let me give another example.
If someone said to me to get over a guy I like because I won’t have a chance. I will find someone closer. But there isn’t anyone like him. Maybe someone can be a bit like him but they never be him. Besides if they were like him, it would feel weird. It’s the personality of a person that can’t be replaced. I don’t know if that cleared it but anyway.

I am what I am and no one can be me. No one can imagine how it is to be me because well, they’re not me. The same goes with other people. I can imagine what someone is like but I never really know how it is to walk in their shoes. I wish someone could one day think of me, I was one of a kind and I could never be replaced. They would miss me terribly when I no longer exist. They can find someone else but they would feel I could never be replaced. That’s an impression I want to leave this world. A doppelgänger of me won’t walk on this earth because, well I’m one of a kind. And so are you.

Thank you The Daily Post

goodbye the daily post

So that’s it then, no more The Daily Post. It’s really sad to let them go. They won’t entirely go away but there won’t be any more new Daily Prompt and no weekly photo challenges either. Those two I used the most. They’re the reason why I got my blog out there. Now when that will be gone, it won’t be the same. I will find inspiration but I don’t know if people will find my posts. Not forgetting getting new followers. My most liked and viewed posts are through the prompts. The Daily Post taught me about blogging. Like the Zero to Hero challenge. That was in 2014. It feels such a long time ago and it has gone really fast. If it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t have continued with blogging. The Daily Post is gonna be like an archaic castle. People will remember the old times and they will pay a visit to remember the glory days.

So what now then? After a bit of a shock, life must continue. We can still go back to old prompts. Of course, it’s not the same. It’s like when you graduate from school and so far you have got help from the teachers whenever you needed support. Now when school is over, you have to go it alone. It’s scary to leave a place that is so comfortable. But you just have to make it alone somehow. The daily prompt wasn’t only about writing a blog post. It was also learning new English words. Like today’s word. I don’t know where I can get to know about English words the way I did with The Daily Post. Every day I couldn’t wait to see what the day’s word would be. Now I don’t have anything to look forward to when it comes to blogging. It will be a sad day on May 31. It will feel empty for a while but you get over it. The show must go on and it’s time for another adventure.

Goodbye is the hardest thing. But thank you for everything The Daily Post. You gave inspiration to many and we’ll always be grateful for that. We’ll miss your new challenges. It’s not really over because you still will be online despite not posting new things. We’ll continue our blogging journey from here. So thank you again. Here’s for the future 🍾

Guilty of loving you

heart shape cuffs rose

Guilty of loving you

You’re my guilty pleasure but I’m not ashamed

I’m only guilty of loving you

I think about you day and night

I’m not in love but love is what I feel

You got that something but I can’t explain what

I wish you would want me the way I do

But you’re somewhere else and not here

I’m guilty of loving you so arrest me

If you only knew how crazy I am about you

No one has ever made me feel this way

You give me thoughts no one else does

If you don’t already know I’m guilty of loving you both
