I was sleeping at the four corners of my room when my cellphone rang..Tooooot! (it was my very close friend)
Gurl1: “Hey boi, gising ka pa?
Me: “Yeah nagpapaantok land and sountrip. Why ? Something wrong?… (as ive heard her crying on the other line)
Gurl1: “Can i just a borrow a minute of your time? Gusto ko lang nang may makakausap..(habang patuloy ang kanyang pag-iyak)
Me: ” Go shoot it! I’m just right here to listen. What happen?
Gurl1: “Its over now. He left me.
Gurl1: “He doesnt really love me any more?…
The conversation still continues. Until she detailed all the reasons why they broke up with his boyfriend. Same…same..and old stories… as sad stories in the movies. Pain and hearthache!
There comes a time in our lives when we chance upon someone “so nice” and “almost perfect” and we just find ourselves getting so intensely attracted to that person (sometimes without even realizing it,di va?). This feeling soon become a part of our everyday lives and eventually sink in our thoughts and actions to the extent that we tagged it as one of those “too good to be true” thing.
The sad part there is when we begin to realize that, this particular person feels totally nothing but friendship. A “thing” that would be forever a “thing” nothing more, nothing less… just a thing! You’re just a friend, and that’s the fact! Then in our desperate attempt to get closer (or at least be noticed), our efforts are still futile and we end up sorry for ourselves..
Letting go of someone doesn’t necessarily mean you have to stop loving, it only means that you allow that person to find his/her own happiness without expecting him/her to come back. Letting go is not just setting the other person free (in the real sense of it), but it is also setting yourself free from all animosity, revulsion, and resentment that was long kept in your heart. You have to let go because the bitterness often puts away the strengths and weakens the littlest hope, making our lives more miserable than ever. Worst, presenting yourself as the “most affected one” sets the nastiest impression of all time–whatta a loser!
The trick there is…always remember that if you lose someone today, it means that someone better is coming tomorrow.
If you lose love that doesn’t mean that you failed in love…right? Just regard it as another mismatch of heaven! Well, you can cry of course, or whine or shout (growl even) if you have to, but make sure that after those outbursts you have washed away the hurt and the bitterness that the past has left with you (easy said than done I know!).
We can all survive with just beautiful memories of the past but real peace and happiness come only with open acceptance of what reality is today. You really don’t have to forget someone you love (‘cause it’s hard). What we need to learn is how to accept the verdict of reality without being bitter or sorry for what we have become. I think it’s better that we give off that dedication and love to someone more deserving. Hmmm…”Who could it be” is the next interesting question to ponder.
Let go of yesterday and love will find its way back to you. And when it does, pray hard that it may be the love that will stay and last a lifetime…..its just sharing a piece of me once agen….GOD BLESS….myr fo’sho..
