What are we really?”

Few months after being together all the time

After being around each other

While you are busy reading this article, try mo rin makinig sa episode namin:

After those fun dates

Those late night phone calls

Those random trips

You popped him this question

What are we really?”

You are tired of not being sure where things will go

You are tired of investing too much in someone unsure

You are tired of settling for something temporary again

He answered carefully trying his best not to hurt you

I am not ready to commit yet

Your heart ached so much hearing his answer

It’s as if you wasted so much time on him

I don’t want to risk everything we have. What if we won’t end up together?”

And it hurt more

It feels like someone stabbed your heart countless times

It’s as if your heart shattered on the floor

You parted ways because you cannot accept his answer and that’s okay

It’s okay to leave someone who cannot commit to you

It’s okay to leave someone who cannot give you the love you deserve

Months passed by you were scrolling through your facebook feed

You saw his relationship status he committed to other girl

That should be me
Am I not worth it?”
Am I not pretty enough?”
Were my efforts not enough?”
Am I not worth the risk?”
Am I not enough?”


Those are the thoughts that came into your mind

You see, nothing worth it comes easy

And you are worth it

Maybe he wasn’t ready for the struggle when you were together

Maybe that time, he wants everything to be easy

And both of you will just go with the flow

He wasn’t brave enough to take a risk

He wasn’t sure if he can handle your strong personality

He wasn’t sure if he can give back the love you are giving him

Whatever his reason was, don’t ever blame yourself

Everyone is worth committing to he just doesn’t want to commit to you

I know reality hurts but that’s the truth

It’s okay if you are still hurting but remember it is not your fault

People think that commitment is all about the label but in reality it is not

Commitment is about knowing that two people got each other til the end;

That you are exclusive to each other;

That you are willing to do everything for each other;

That you will not allow anyone to break your relationship

Commitment is assurance

Commitment is important

Don’t ever blame yourself if a person cannot commit to you

Don’t think that you are not enough

You are always enough

You are even more than enough

It’s just each individual has their own measurement of what is enough and what is not

Someday, you will meet someone who won’t make you doubt yourself even an inch if you are enough or not

You will meet someone who will value your worth

Someone who will conquer the struggles of love with you

Someone who will take those struggles as challenges that will make your relationship stronger and better

But for now, be your own happiness

Discover new things about yourself

Live your life

Collect stories and experiences so when the right one comes you will gladly tell him what lead you to him

And together you will journey through the path of love
