life is so Hard.

hey, TenchiJk here.

I'm so fed up with life right now... Furious at the world. I'm tired of trying to make excuses up for why life is so hard and I'm tired of comparing my self to 3rd world countries to make myself feel more grateful. No matter what I try, I'm going to be unsatisfied with what I have, because in this society I have nothing. Perhaps compared to someone in the 3rd world I have a lot, however the reality is that I'm in a shit hole.

After getting out of the military its been the hardest time of my life. I thought , only if I leave the military, my life will become normal. Maybe, my life would be easier. I would have my old friends back, and I would resume my life as how it used to be. However, life isn't that easy... and Friends are fickle. They change like changing weather, and they sway back and forth like wheats in the field.

I found myself one day with more internet friends then real friends. I found myself one day caught up in situations that weren't even real. I found myself defending the asian race, while other asians looked down upon me and thought be ridiculous for trying. I found myself unable to crawl out of this ditch, which kept getting deeper and deeper. Neglecting it didn't make the ditch any more elevated.

No matter what I do, i keep finding myself in the same predicament... Unable to escape the grasp of this cruel life I live in. Beyond my jokes and smiles, i am so overwhelmed with grief! and agony! I cannot continue on like this, or my head will indeed explode!!!!!!!

Lord please have mercy on me. Lord I am lost ,and I am so in need. Lord I tried to live my life according to my ways, and my efforts but they all were in vain. Lord please give me your grace, so I may dwell upon your world in peace, with no worries and with abundant fruits. God, please please please have mercy on me.

  2. "The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?" (Psalm 27:1)

    The Lord is my light: When we walk in His light, we do not stumble. Enemies are not able to hide in the dark and catch us by surprise. He vanquishes the darkness. "Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me" (Micah 7:8, see also 1 John 1:5-7).

    The Lord is my salvation: God delivers His children from physical and spiritual danger, including deliverance from the penalty of sin. "Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of thy name: and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for thy name's sake" (Psalm 79:9).

    The Lord is the strength of my life: God is our defense, a place of refuge. "The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower" (Psalm 18:2).

  3. If I may. The last paragraph shows you are 'in the right place'. It's hard to be a 'well' thats dipped in continuously but now the 'well' needs a place to dip in and be replenished. Sounds like you are in a place where you now need to make some decisions and they are difficult.
    Dont give up! and change your source of influence....is it the Lord or the world...
    Dont give in! you have a great heart and spirit.

    Oh and TenchiJk....get out of my head and speaking my thoughts...
    you can get through this and I will too!!!

  4. In life we all face adversaries but we must not give up. I know the military life and I can tell you,it's no party. People never knows what is going on behind the smiles and the jokes. But you play along to feel normal, to feel like your not crazy. David, I know in my own way what you are going through. I just need you to realize that you are appreciated. That hate will always be around but love even though it's not what your seeking for, is here for you. You cannot give up and I don't know what I can do from here but if I have to post to every site. I'll let you know, someone care. I care. Hang in there please, for you for us.

  5. Hey Tenchi, we all feel like this sometimes, I wish that life was exactly the way I want it. But the harsh reality is it's just not. If I had a dime for the times that I wanted to give up I'd probably be rich. (exagerating maybe) This too shall pass.

    I still consider you as a friend. I wanted to let you know that I have no right to judge other peoples lifestyles. I thought about that and realized that's just what I was doing. Everybody has their vice in which to cope in this harsh world, I do too. I realized what I was doing was generalizing and that's wrong. So I checked myself on that. I was actually thinking about my past experiences and relationships, not realizing I was putting everybody in a category. So I apologize if I offended you in any way. I don't think lesser of you.

    But don't despair Tenchi, God still answers prayers. We all have to go through pain and hardship to learn what God wants to teach us. Don't give up on yourself. Don't give up on life. People are going to be who they are we don't have the power to change them. Only to put change in motion with ourselves.

    I get very frustrated too with the world and how unjust it is. I feel so helpless and powerless sometimes. We should be building eachother up instead of tearing eachother down.

    Find out what it is that you really want to do. The 20s decade is the hardest. It's a period when you are discovering who you are. I'm sure that's what you are feeling now. I think 10 years in the 20s is too long.Lol But when you are approaching 30 you start opening your eyes and you see things a little clearer.
    That's why I say be careful not to have kids while you're in your 20s because alot of people haven't really learned who they are yet.
    I can't speak for everybody but that's one of the life's lessons that I learned. Stay Strong :)

  6. hi..I'm sorry to hear about how u feel right now,
    ask your self what are u living for ..is it for the world or for something more
    the world will never be your friend ,and people that live for the world never see more than the things infront of them their scope dosen't go any further..
    and i think u should be grateful for whatever u have,it shapes our character and makes us more appreciative when we obtain the blessings.
    Since u beleive in God u must know there is more to this life and only a selected few eyes are opened to see that..
    u may realize some things around u that others never even care to look at or arent even intrested in, thats a gift...
    u may cannot change the world but u share your knowledge and maybe some body out there is touched by that ..I know I was.
    So please don't let this world win,dont give up...

  9. Hey Tenchi,

    I have just recently discovered you on YOUTUBE just about a week ago, and I am in means as committed (or have commitments rights) like other viewers who have been following you for months or even years to say that I feel that I know you. But I do. Maybe not like in a person-to-person way, but I feel like in a spiritual way (dunno if that makes sense?). From watching your videos on youtube, I got to see and experience your personality, your comedy, your struggles, your happiness, etc. However, there was always a tinge of sadness (sometimes faint, sometimes prominent). When I felt that, it was weird for me because, you are just some guy on the internet who makes videos and does not who I am, what I look like, what I believe in and so on. From all the youtubers I've seen, I feel like you are the realest, you are open with your thoughts and you do not censor yourself, which intrigued me as a viewer. Almost a form of self-deprecation if you will. This helped me understand the man that was talking on my computer screen.
    So, I feel I can say that I know (but let's face it that's not true). Why do I feel this, just like this blog post you made. I can relate to you 100%. Life has lost it's meaning, it doesn't make any sense, it has no substance everything that was part of my definition of life has become a faint memory that is so hard to recall. I always asked myself "why?", why can I not feel the joy I felt only a few years back. Why can I not enjoy the company of my old friends? These friends of mine used to be my "ride or die" chicks and now they have become "see-you-once-a-month-if-I-have-time" chicks. Why do I feel every success that I have achieved does not fill this apparent hole I feel. Why is this world that I have once known not EXIST anymore? Why can it not just return back to like the ways it used to be.
    Then I realized something. All the things I dwelled on life, such as friendships, success, approval, acceptance from others was just a bunch of BULLS*^$#! Why am I defining my life (and myself) with things that are outside of my control? What will that do for me...nothing, ABSOLUTELY nothing. All it would do just make the hole wider and deeper than it ever was, this satisfaction I was looking for.
    So I focused on things that are stable, that I KNOW will not change such as my faith (not Christian but I can relate with you), my family (because they will always be there), and myself (I will always have me). You always have to remember number one. You can accept yourself and define yourself from YOUR perspective with the haze of other people's judgments will realize you found your best friend.
    THIS, is the road of SELF-DISCOVERY. I like to call this self-discovery like a 1/4 life crisis. Some people may say that's BULL but I think when life slaps you in the face, it's forcing your ass to realize something about yourself.
    So Tenchi, do not, I REPEAT, DO NOT let people give YOUR DEFINITION OF DAVID. You must rise above their hate comments and racism and realize they do not KNOW YOU, THEY DO NO DEFINE YOU. THEY ARE OUTSIDE OF YOU. If you realize this, you will become untouchable. Their prejudices and ignorance will not be able to graze your heart and leave a scar like it had in the past.

  12. Look at yourself in the mirror, look closely at yourself. You will find your definition there. You are a son, you have protected millions of Americans and ensured their safety, you have self worth, God would not have put you in the world if you did not have a purpose or create and impact. I personally think you have used your talent of speech to entice people and force them to discuss things that have not really been discussed. You have inspired me to write this post, I never do these things. I can continue listing the things to help define you, but is your job to DEFINE WHO DAVID IS.
    I write this post to let you know, YOU ARE NOT ALONE! We all lose our way, but we must remember to stay strong and believe (NOT HOPE) that things will get better. This world is only temporary and it's a test from God. We must not let hardships in life overwhelm our lives, we must take control before it takes control over us. And we do this by TRULY and SOLELY by seeking God Almighty (ameen). God will guide you to the right path and this is where you will find happiness (if God wills).
    I dunno, if you will read, reply to this or even ignore this but I hope you got something out of my post. I hope that things get better (and they will). Just stay strong and be the man that you know that YOU love, not who other people love. REMEMBER NUMBER. one love.

    The Fruit of Our WordsShare. Thursday August 5th, 2010

    Today’s Verse: “I create the fruit of the lips…” (Isaiah 57:19, KJV).

    Today’s Word:

    Did you know that your words are like seeds? They have creative power. In the future, we will eat the fruit of our words. That means our words are going to produce exactly what we’re saying.

    That’s why it’s so important to make positive declarations over our lives every single day. We should say things like “I am blessed. I am prosperous. I am healthy. I am talented. I am creative. I am wise.” When we do this, we are standing in agreement with God’s Word. We are sowing good seed. We are preparing our future for when we arrive.

    Today, make sure you are sowing good seed with your words. Speak God’s Word which is truth that will set you free. Let His Word fill your heart and mind and direct your mouth with what to say. Set yourself up for success in your future and pave the way for victory with your words today!

    Prayer for Today: Father God, thank You for Your Word which is truth that sets me free. Help me to guard my words and sow good seed into my future. I choose to hide Your Word in my heart. Keep me close to You and direct my steps. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

  14. Choose Your Friends WiselyShare. Tuesday, August 3, 2010 at 10:25am
    Today’s Verse: “…Do not throw your pearls before swine” (Matthew 7:6, NAS).

    Today’s Word:

    Do you realize you have treasure on the inside of you? You could say that your pearls are what God has given you to be a blessing to the world around you—your gifts, talents and abilities. When you get around true friends, people who really believe in you, they won’t be jealous of your gifts. They won’t constantly question who you are. They won’t try to talk you out of your dreams. It will be just the opposite. They’ll help you polish your pearls, develop your pearls, enhance your pearls, and grow your pearls. In other words, they’ll give you ideas. They’ll connect you with people they know. They’ll help push you further along. If you stay around people who don’t value your gifts nor appreciate what you have to offer, that’s casting your pearls among swine.

    Your inner circle, those who are closest to you, should be people who celebrate who you are; people who are happy when you succeed. They should be people who believe the very best in you. Remember, it’s not the quantity of friends that’s important, it’s the quality of friends. Choose your friends wisely so you can be all that God has called you to be.

    Prayer for Today: Heavenly Father, thank You for the gifts, talents and abilities You have given to me. Help me to recognize the treasure within. Give me wisdom to discern the right relationships You have ordained for me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

  15. Make Right ConnectionsShare. Monday, August 2, 2010 at 10:50am
    Today’s Verse: “A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother” (Proverbs 18:24, NIV).

    Today’s Word:

    Do you know how important it is to be connected to the right people? Your destiny is too big to accomplish on your own. But God has already arranged for certain people to speak faith into you. He has already placed in your path people who will inspire you, challenge you and help you accomplish your dreams. But the reason some people never reach their highest potential is because they never get away from the wrong people.

    Recognize today that not everyone can go where God is taking you. You’ve got to connect with people who understand your destiny and can call forth your seeds of greatness. You don’t have time to spend on people who are always pushing you down, telling you what you can’t do, or never giving you their approval no matter how hard you try. Friend, life is too short to drag people along. If you will get the wrong people out of your life, then God will bring in the right people so you can fulfill the destiny He has in store for you.

    Prayer for Today: Father in heaven, thank You for placing the right people in my life. Help me to discern the right connections You have for me. Give me strength to release the wrong relationships so I have room in my life for the people You have chosen to connect with me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

  16. Joel Osteen is on Facebook and you can say "YES" to his page. Even if you think you don't need it, just do it because. Kristina, you and David will make it. I am sure of that. Look at what you have already inspired and you say you do nothing good.

    Don't Give Up On Your Tomorrows. Wednesday, July 7, 2010 at 10:08am

    Today’s Verse: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11, NIV).

    Today’s Word:

    No matter what may be happening today, God has good things in store for your future! It may not be easy to see now, but God has already lined up a new beginning, new friendships, and new opportunities for you. Maybe last year had some setbacks and difficulty, but don’t make the mistake of expecting this year to be the same. It’s time to get a new vision because it is a new day!

    As believers, our attitude should be, “Even though the economy is down, I’m not worried. I know God is going before me, and He has promised He will make rivers in the desert.” Or, “The medical report may not look good, but I have another report that says that God is restoring health unto me. I believe God has already released healing, health and victory in my future.” Or, you may have a child who is not on the right course. In the natural it seems impossible. But our report should be, “I know God can do the impossible! My child will fulfill their destiny!” Be encouraged today and don’t give up on your tomorrows because God has a good plan in store for you!

    Prayer for Today: Father in heaven, thank You for giving me a hope and a future. Thank You for loving me. Thank You for choosing me. Thank You for delighting in me. I invite You to renew my heart and mind to the good plans you have for me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

  17. Tenchi, you are so deeply appreciated...i'm a 46 year old healthcare professional who tends to the very sick all day long...always come home tired as hell...but i never fail to check in with you to see what you are up to...to be so young...yet so wise...you are just what some of us need at the end of a difficult day...you give us hope in the younger generation...there are a lot of us 'older people' who watch you in amazement...what you are going through is quite normal for the 20's...believe me, this too shall pass...if you are not too weary, you may want to pick up the newly published diary of Mother Theresa...she experienced in detail the dark night of the soul, and look at all what she accomplished...i know talent when i see it...and you are destined for great things...look, sometines the only way to become closer to our Savior is through suffering...google the definition of 'redemptive suffering'...maybe things will become a little clearer for you...you will be in my prayers this week.

  18. Aww tenchi, U are soo special and truely one of a kind...When I felt horrible and I just couldn't even get out of bed I watched your videos and they made me laugh and forget about my problems for abit. I will not say I understand how you feel because you are the only one going through what your going through but it really does make me sad that Ur feeling like this because I just wanna give you a big hug and make you happy but I can't.

    But I guess I relate a bit about friends and being more concerned about the media or the celeb world. But I think it's the sociaty we are in, sometimes I wonder if those people in the third world have more culture, life and happieness than us...we have everything we need and more concerning money or technology but we don't have the important things. Anyways, just a thought...I really hope you find something that will make truely happy David and You will be in my prayers.

  19. Dear Tenchi,
    i don't know if you'll ever read this but im hoping you do. As many people hav said in their comments they hav gone thru about the same thing u have ,it's the same with me.(except for the millitary part)friends and people can b total a holes and separtaing from friends can be rlly painful. but don't giv up on your life and don't give up on God. everyone goes thru hard times and feel lik life is too much to handle. at my church we sing this song called "he's able" its such a good song for times like this. Friends rnt forever and most of the time they betray you or change in a way that separates u from them. but God's alwayz there and alwayz will be as long as you trust in him. Pray to him about your problems. ask other people to pray for you aswell. if you have time please listen to the song. here:

    i'm a dedicated fan of your youtube videos and it's only been about a week.keep making them and the bad comments r just stupid people that dont have anything better to say. most of the time they get bullied and the best way to get off their steem is to b a cyber bully. it pisses me off but it happens. keep doin what ur doin nd speak ur mind thts wut i lik about yur vids. ily tenchi!<3 :)

  20. I just wanted to drop a word of encouragement to you. I've been feeling quite "hollow" myself lately for many different reasons...one is a have a birthday coming up on the 14th (that's a blessing), but no "real" friends to celebrate with me...but....here's the encouraging part- in my distress, I don't even know how I found your videos, but I did. I watched them for a few hours and found myself laughing a good, hearty laugh that sparked my happiness(my fave is the 'I hate that shid' video)...if only for a few hours.
    I'm telling you that what you have is special. Unique. Seriously. You fight the good fight, and I'm here to back you up. I'm not just saying that- REAL TALK. I'm not Asian, but I get what you are saying. Think of why you even started doing your videos in the first place. Go back to that feeling that inspired you. I commend you on realizing what is true and it's okay to feel the way you feel. All hope is not lost, because if it were, would you have even called upon the name of GOD? He hears us in our time of need- and it seems like you are ready to make changes for the better.
    Your emotions justify your spirit and your heart- it's rare for people these days to even HAVE a heart..too fake and too numb and dumbed down by material things they sold their soul for.
    I'm sending you a snuggly hug- full of inspiration and smiles-(it's okay to hug back..I'm a girl! ^^)
    I love that you can show the world who you are..and don't ever stop doing you. I'll be waiting to find out how things are going! Good luck and lots of luv- Marie

  22. Your situation isn't humorous, but it's humorous that I know exactly how you feel. I'm there myself, right now...feeling like you should be grateful for what you do have, but looking around you, you're doing so much worse than everyone else. At this point, I only have God to lean on, and that, in itself is beautiful because you only truly realize that God is all you need when you're in a situation where God is all you have.
    Also, I have to keep asking myself, by who's standards do I want to be successful? This world's, or Christ's? That tends to put things into perspective for me. Who's standards of success are you living by, Tenchi?
    When you go through difficult situations, think of the account in the book of Daniel of Meshach, Shadrach, and Abednego. God didn't prevent them from being thrown into the fiery furnace, but He brought them through it without looking or smelling like they'd been walking in fire. When you make it through fire, you come out gold, baby! Daily remind yourself of that.

  23. I know how you feeling and I am going through that right now. I have always been the one that would put a smile on my face, act all goofy like a child would, and laugh so I can make other people...but I never so them my true emotions of what I am going through and it's killing me.

    You may think that your life is not fair and ask God how come other people have it easier than I do. Also, why is it that every time I am doing something that is right, someone or somebody has to put me down. Or why I can't have stable friends and why did they leave when I needed them the most. Yea, I know that feeling very well.

    What you have to understand this that you have friends internet or not, you do. God puts people in your like for a reason. Some may be leaves on a tree, branches on a tree, or roots of a tree. God would put will bless you with friends that are the roots of your tree and you could only find very few. Don't lose hope at all.

    God has major things in store for you and you have a good heart. You have a gift to give to the world and you know what it is and it's time for you to use it. You have done a GREAT job of representing your culture and speak out the truth and the discrimination as Asian people. Keep fighting and keep talking about issues that people are afraid about and keep doing what you love to do. Don't give up at all.

    My mother always tells me this and I am telling it to you "Walk by faith; not by sight."

    You will be okay. May God bless your lovely soul.

    Today’s Scripture: “…His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:22-23, NAS).

    Today’s Word:

    Is there something that you’ve done in your past that you’re not particularly happy about? A choice that you regret? The good news today is that you can be free of guilt and condemnation. You don’t have to live with that burden any longer.

    Today’s verse tells us that God’s mercies are new every morning. He’s not ever going to run out of compassion. He’s not ever going to run out of forgiveness. He’s not ever going to say, “Well, this is the last time I’m going to give you mercy.” No, you can have a new beginning evkery single day!

    Let that truth sink down deep into your heart right now. If there is anything from the past that you may still be carrying, take a moment and call on His faithfulness. Call on His mercy. Ask for His forgiveness. Let Him refresh and restore your soul right now. Praise Him and thank Him for the work He is doing in your life and enjoy a fresh new beginning today!

    Prayer for Today: Heavenly Father, today I choose to let go of every single weight from the past. I call on Your mercy; I call on Your grace. Thank You for hearing me and delivering me. I receive Your love and forgiveness today. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

  26. Hey Tenchi,
    We have wrote to you before, but you may be to busy to reply. No worries. My sisters and I (we) have been through a lot. It might be hard for people to believe us and we know that some people don't believe us at all. But don't give up in life. We don't really have friends and we used to have a lot of online friends. But now it's hard to maintain, but there is nothing wrong with online friends. If you want friends you can ask God. We know it is hard for you because when you experience many problems in your life, it is hard to find happiness. When we had problems we tried to find ways to run away from them, but it never worked. It was a trail God took us through and no it is not over yet. Tenchi you have to face the fears you may not want to but ask God to guide you. Also God has done so much for you. Think of the good things that God has done for you. Always remember that and listen for his voice. You are a good person. Don't let your past haunt you. We are in a battle of good vs evil. God Loves You! And So Do We! lol

    We are praying for you and pray for us.

  27. We all feel like that sometimes. Life can be hard, and without the proper support, you feel like life is overwhelming you. But I'd like to share a scripture with you to give you some encouragement:

    Matthew 11:28 "Come to me, all you who are toiling and loaded down, and I will refresh you."
    Just keep praying to Jehovah God, and read your Bible. Spiritual support is very refreshing, and can help you withstand anything. Without God's help, none of us could make it. Live your life the best you can, and according to God's ways. I hope this helps you. :)

  28. Well Tenchi, Life is hard...but then you die. Sometimes you cant look at life as a whole, you got to take each day as it comes making the most out of those you interact with (even if they are on the internet)so keep your head up and know that god is with you (he never makes mistakes and he never gives you too much to handle) As far as friends being fickle goes I'll tell you what my mom told me, some friends are not meant to last their just there for seasons and you just got to let them go because new ones are always on the horizon.

  29. have you ever read The Perks of Being a Wallflower ??
    he says a similar thing ! about how telling someone that people have it harder in china [or whatever country] won't change the fact that you are unsatisfied with the situation in front of you.
    not that it's fine to bitch and complain about every little thing, but it's ok to feel upset
    just wanted to share that ^^
    sorry it probably hasn't made you feel better in any way T-T
    i really wish i could help
    but we're worlds apart
    and i'm just a kid :[

  30. Sound like you're at the crossroads of life and on vicious carousel. You can't soar like an eagle because you're stuck running with turkeys (the world and society's biases & outdated standards). You're a philosophical person, in that you care about people and the world you live in, so much that you've become a tortured soul. It's an all but too familiar walk of life that too few ever grasp or understand. Depressing? Heck yes. Because it makes you feel as though you're alone and fighting an endless war! What to do? Choose your battles. You're not going to win every battle and know that you're not alone, there are others out there so let them take on a few battles; divide and conquer to win the war! Yes friends are as you eloquently stated, "..like the weather". Some will never see, much less grasp your vision because they are not YOU! You are God's gift to the world (circle of people you associate with/encounter daily). We all are God's gift to the world, everyday we walk out into the world we impact people lives be it small or on a grand scale, just by being yourself you make an impact/dent. That's all God expects of you. By investing time in our relationship with God we understand who He is and we better understand who it is we become to the world - a light of hope and change! The Golden Rule should have a more fulfilling impact, John 13:34,35 "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another." Unfortunately we live in a world that has yet to grasp this Golden Rule, and even worse a belief in God. God doesn't expect you to change the world, He just wants you to be Tenchijk (David). He receives glory each and everytime someone tunes into your Youtube, BlogTv or even your Blogspot, because you're touching people's lives and yes even changing them. Maybe it's not on a scale that you'd prefer to see or to your satisfaction, but you're making a difference! Is life hard? Yes, but know that you're experiencing the philosophical labor pains of personal growth, and any woman thats given birth will tell you labor pain hurts. Those pains shape and mold you into the person you'll become to your future wife, child(ren) and even society. It's not fun, it's not glamourous, it does and can bring you down, but we grow as a result of pain. We tend to be more appreciative of the highs in life versus when we're experiencing pain. I live with your frustrations daily, I know and feel your mental anguish, but please know that you're not alone and that God will Help You, because He loves too much to let you carry that overwhelming burden alone. Peace, PhilosSista

  31. Tenchi,you get so much love. You really do. There's not much I can say that someone hasn't already said, because i'm still young and naive, but Keep doing what you're doing. You get more love that most American celebrities! and maybe it's not about the people from far away or the ones you only see through the world wide web, maybe it's an emptiness that's more physical and close to you. I totally understand that. But whatever you do, don't give up. As a youtuber who just discovered you recently, I can honestly say that i have become just like the rest who are faithful to your every word. You're a beautiful person,inside and out. And one of the most HONEST men out there. And you should also give yourself mad credit for being one of VERY few Asian man who put their voice out there. Be proud, you're beautiful.

  32. Don't give up, Don't give in, Don't give way .....

    "Subject to Change"

    "While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporary; but the things which are not seen are
    eternal." (2Corinthians 4:18)

    Don't center your attention on what you can see in this natural, physical sense realm.
    Everything you see is temporary and subject to change. So, put your faith in the unseen eternal realm. The things which are eternal are not subject to change. God's Word is eternal, and God's promises are eternal.....

    "My God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:19)

    Your mind is where the battle takes place. Whatever you allow to captivate your mind will rule your life. The decision is yours. Refuse to surrender to the circumstantial pressure that comes your way. A lot of times when we compare our things to others, ours look like "shitholes", but what we don't realize is that everyone has their own
    "shitholes" or something similar but we don't see them. We're only focused on ours and how we think things should be. Now I am not saying that times are not hard.... , nor am I attempting to trivialize what has been happening in your life. Oh, Yes -- I know things can be a Hell hole, and appear to only get worse from there. You do not need to go to a third world country to find it either, it's in the good ole USA. I also know that through every hard time, there are always blessings and other things (that may seem small at the time) that we can still truly be thankful. For If they were not present or in place at the time -- it would have truly been the last straw (an example is our health, or our mental health - sanity, and so many other things, certain people, a pet, you'd be surprised -- if you just stop and examine
    ....and THANK GOD!). Since I am older than you, I can share this from experience.

    Decide at the onset that you will not succumb to these trials. Dig you heels in and stand immovable upon the promises of God. When thoughts come that are contrary to God's will, cast them down. And above all, don't worry. Replace worried, fearful, and doubtful thoughts with the Word of God, and his
    promises. God values you! He made you just the way you are for a reason, and he does not make mistakes. There is a reason that you have touched the number of lives that you have, at this point in your life. You are alive today because He has kept you here for a reason. You have so much more to
    be......, more to say......, so much more to experience...... You may have had lost and hard times, but God has something good ahead planned for you.

    "I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living". (Psalm 27:13)

    Don't give up, Don't give in, Don't give way. Remember, God has a way to bring you the blessings that He has destined you to receive. God has called you for an eternal purpose. Remember, just before the baby arrives, that's when the labor pains reach their peak, but all the while -- the miracle is growing.....

    I actually just fell across a few of your videos and Blog today, and felt lead to post a response to your August 7th entry. There are people who care about you, and miss you. You can see how many people you've touched just through your YouTube videos, your Blog and their responses. Sometimes you don't need to know someone -- to really know and understand them. We are all the same, with the same basic fears, hopes and dreams (regardless of the facades that we present to the world). You are not alone. Remember God is ALWAYS there for you. Read God's Word (sometimes the Psalms are a good place to start).

    Come back soon -- we miss you! Hey, I'd like to hang out and watch more of your videos, and check out your Blog from time to time. :-)

  33. Young TenchiJK,

    Think of me as your Aunt(Imo)TheMusicWhisper, all the way from Texas. I see so many wonderful words of encouragement from your many fans/friends. Note "Your Fans". This my young friend says a lot about you. You have the gift of charisma and you have a following. I'm going to talk to you as if you were my child, I'm sure you have heard this from your family. Not everyone out there is going to like you because you're taller or shorter, handsomer, charismatic, smarter, cooler, friendlier or the genuine article they can never be. That's their problem to deal with, don't allow it to become yours.
    You do You because you're the only one in this world that can do TenchiJK.

    ****** Friends**********
    No matter how great or fickle some of them are, they are our friends because we care about them, even when they get on our last nerve. It's in their job description. Keep the love for your Homeys like Nate Dogg said in "I Got Love"-- Okay this one might be a little spicey, but it expresses the point I'm making.

    **** Haters ******
    Is somebody tripping out on your style, well not everybody can be a trendsetter like yourself. Some talk, while others like yourself are trailblazers. It's like Kelly Rowland said in her song, "Shake Them Haters Off" when you wake up in the morning and turn off your alarm clock. Here's a question, How many of those people that are "trying" to bring you down have a following(fans)? I rest my case. Somebody ring the TenchiJK school bell because school is in, and it's like MC Hammer said, "U Can't Touch This".


    ***** Love *******

    Tenchi, you are looking for a candidate to fill the position of "The special lady in your life" So far some of the candidates you've hired are not passing the probationary period. Remember you have to list the qualifications you want in that "special lady" or else anyone will apply for the position. Keep interviewing candidates until you find the right lady for the job, because it's like the song "Undiscovered" by James Morrison. She's not lost but undiscovered, like a great hidden treasure.

    In closing, I would like to say Keep the Faith and don't be shaken by this "life equation" that you may be trying to solve right now. I have confidence you will solve it in no time. Just think of the wisdom you will gain. Stay true to TenchiJK!!!
