Remember the Lesson

Sa ngayon, ako muna

Nakakalungkot araw araw ko naiisip pano kung di kita iniwan dahil sa biglaang desisyon, dapat matuto tayo na huwag unahin ang puso bago isip sabi nga sa Bible our heart is very deceitful Jeremiah 17:9 “The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. W...

Ang hirap sa feels kapag iniwan mo ang taong nanjan para sayo at taong tinulungan kang buuin ang sarili mo, dahil lang sa pagkakataong nagsorry at bumalik na ex mo sayo. Nakakalungkot pag iniisip mo na sayang sana di na lang ako nagdesisyon bigla bigla. Talagang nasa huli ang pag...

How do you forget someone who grated your heart like a block of cheese?
Si God yung naging sandalan ko sa lahat ng bagay lalo na itong mga nakaraan na sobrang bigat ng nararamdaman siya yung kahit hindi mo na nakikita mararamdaman mo talaga na nandyan siya at yung pagmamahal niya mararamdaman mo palagi kase yun yung tinatawag na pagmamahal niya sayo ...

Ang hirap pala kapag wala ka yung tipong walang paramdam doon palang nga sa hindi tayo nagkikita napakahirap na. Sabagay humingi kapala ng kaunting espasyo sa ating relasyon para makapag-isip at para ayusin mo ang iyong sarili. Namimiss kita, yung mga ngiti mong na kasing t...
At this point, I think I've written you more or less 100 unsent letters. I needed an outlet for my emotions because I know I can never tell you those directly. To be honest, it's been a long struggle for me to stay friends with you. Don't get me wrong, I really love being you...

How ironic that I used to look at each sunset with a smile thinking that another sunrise is gonna be a day closer to you. Now sunset only reminds me that everything, albeit beautiful and lovely would always come to an end.
Hi, This will be my last email to you. For the past months, I’ve been failing in all the aspects of my life – my work, family and friends. I just realize this lately, how ugly It is to live in the past, in regrets. You are living in a life of failure. My mistakes are not me; th...
Ano ba ang kumukulong sayo para hindi makawala sa isang maling relasyon? I guess it’s knowing that he still wants you. That he’s not 100% sure that he wants to let you go..and your relationship to be over. That he still sees you as special.. That he still longs for you.....

I heard this yesterday and I thought how cute! (The song) but the lyrics, sounds like someone's stuck in a toxic ship. 🤭 I didn't know it was an ode for quarantine life until later. Then, it was clear to me how toxic it can be sometimes the relationship we have in the family. We...
"Hayaan mo na siya'y maging masaya." ay isang tula mula sa isang tao na nagmamahal ngunit gusto nang lumaya at magpalaya, nasaktan at gusto nang humilom.
Ang sulat na ito ay nabuo sa loob ng jeep kung saan ang sabi ni kuya driver ay 'waluhan po tayo' pero kuya bakit siyam ang pinapaupo mo? Habang napabilang ako sa dami ng tao na nagsisiksikan sa loob ng masikip na rektangulo ay may naalala ako at sshare ko narin sa inyo na nung mi...
The most painful of all heartaches doesn’t come from a breakup. It comes from loving someone who is not yours and will never be yours. What makes it worst, is if you were in that situation for 10 long years. Everyday we had our late night conversations, pag gising ko sa umaga me...
People say "Distance doesn't matter" but let me tell you the reality... We are in this long-distance relationship for almost a year now. In the beginning, everything was just fun, enjoyable, and full of laughs. It was almost like the honeymoon period. After a few months, the rea...
Never beg someone to pick you up and make you feel less. The right man will do what it takes just to have you. The right man will adjust to your self-value. The right man will come up and show you that you’re worth it all. Be faithful.
I have always risked my 100% trust for people who didn't even deserve a small percentage of it.
If he gets you confused of the kind of love he's making you feel, do yourself the honor to dodge away from it. If he's not sure of what your real status is, he's clearly not sure about his feelings for you. Umilag ka sis. Di ka bulletproof, tandaan mo yan.
How do you forgive someone who isn’t even sorry about what they did? How do you end something that has not even started yet?
My heart doesn't weigh. Not longing for something, No regrets in everything. Didn't know if what I did is right, Or if this feeling is right.   Me, being moral and rational connect like a joint. Yet, I still asks for a point. Did I do something wrong?...
