Minsan ba naiisip mo bakit pinipili mong manatili? Sumagi na rin ba sa isip mo bakit kahit anong mali o sakit ang nagawa sayo, napapatawad mo?
Ang madalas mong sagot? “Mahal ko eh.”
Pero hindi. Hindi laging ganoon. Sometimes we tend to stay because we choose our own convenience.
While you are busy reading this article, try mo rin makinig sa episode namin:
“Sinasaktan nya ko, hindi convenient yun.” BUT that same person, who hurts you the most, knows almost every single detail about you. Your favorite drink, mannerisms and even your fart that smells so bad.
We chose to stay because we are too afraid to start over. Mas madaling kumapit kaysa sumubok sa walang kasiguraduhan. Mas madaling magbulag bulagan kaysa umulit na naman ng simula sa iba.
Your own family must have invested time and effort to build the emotional and physical bond with your partner. This also applies to couples with kids and investments. Hindi makabitaw at inilalaban hanggang dulo, para sa anak at sa pamilya.
Imagine, letting go may mean you will have to put yourself out there with uncertainty and not knowing whether another person can and will accept you for who you are and what you were.
So when you decide to stay despite all the pain and mistakes your partner has caused you, think again.
Most of the time, it is not a question of whether it is worth saving or not, it is a question of whether fighting for it for love? Or convenience?
If it is for love, do something to make it work.
If it is for convenience, is it really worth it and fair for you both? Is it worth the pain and sacrifices?
Whichever answer you have, you must be aware of why you chose to stay. Kapag alam mo kung bakit, masasagot mo kung hanggang kailan ka kakapit.
