Something Everyone Should Know

Everyone has problems. Everyone needs saving. The thing is , someone can have it worse than you but that doesn’t mean you don’t have any right to break down and be miserable. You do. You have all the rights. You’re also a human. We all are.

We feel each other’s pain. We help to heal the pain.

Even if you can’t call out for help, raise a hand. I’ll grab it and I’ll help you get through it. Just raise your hands up high, and I’ll hold it. I will guide you through until you’re all okay. Just hang in there a little longer. I’m coming for you. Someone cares for you. I care for you. I wouldn’t bring the effort to write this if you’re nothing.

You are something and YOU ARE LOVED.



Just Show Up, Darling.

Just show up, as you are. You don’t have to look or feel great. You don’t have to be prepared for each challenge or know all the hows of every situation. You don’t have to be fearless, or have all the answers, or be 100% ready. Nobody is any of these things. Nobody ever was. It’s not about being perfect, at all. You just have to show up, as you are, despite all the objections and insecurities of your mind, despite each and every fear that threatens to hold you back, despite the limitations and criticisms others will place on you. To hell with it all. This is your life, your journey, your adventure, and all it’s asking of you is to show up for it, as you are. That’s enough. That’s more than enough. That’s everything.

It’s amazing how you always inspire me. How you give me so many different kinds of emotion all at the same time. You make me want to write everything I feel about. You make me want to express every single thought in my head into words. I remember when you asked for some “alone time” the other day. You were so down, lost, and confused. You told me you need time to think and compose yourself so you can prepare for another job interview the next day. I tried my best to encourage you (refer to the above message). I want you to remember these words, always. 

You Make Me Proud

How do you do it, darling? How do you keep on going despite it all? Because it’s not easy to give your entire heart to each passing day, even though you have lost precious people and moments, or been squeezed, or made to feel like you don’t count, when you really do. I’m just glad. I’m glad you find it in yourself, the resolve, the grit, the desperation, the belief to continue. Because deep down you know that any other way just wouldn’t do it for you. You make me proud. Proud to be human. Proud to be one of you. Your fighting, beating, ever-brightening heart is needed here more than you realise. Beat wild today, fight hard, chest out. You got this. Like you did yesterday and the day before that and that and that.

I dedicate this to my boyfriend, to whom I always been proud of. You have been a great warrior, love. You may not even realise how strong you are, but I’ve seen it. I’ve seen it through your eyes and deep into your soul. You’ve overcome so many challenges in life all by yourself. I know at times you get so tired of life, but always remember, you are NOT alone now. I am with you, we will walk this life together. You will NEVER be alone anymore. I will never stop reminding you how proud I am that you are still here, with me, breathing.

A Thank You Letter To My Best Friend

We were inseparable. You helped me through awkward, tough, and uncomfortable times. You were my rock when I needed stability and my laugh when I was crying. Thank you for being you. You are genuine, kind, and selfless.

You are one of the best parts of my life. I will always look back on our friendship and hope my future kids have a friend like I have in you.

You are such a sweetheart and I always wish you the best. We both have gone down separate paths because you’re in Cebu and I’m in Davao, but we’re positively thriving. Keep doing your thing!

No matter the time that passes, if you ever need anything just know I’ll always be here.

You have such a positive impact on me when I needed it most. I’m so thankful you are part of  my life. Without you, I wouldn’t have made it through some of the most horrendous school days and adult days.

Thank you for providing me with a second family. Thank you for your support. Thank you always for being my best friend.

Love always,

Your Friend Forever

I Do Not Want A 50/50 Relationship

I don’t want a fifty-fifty relationship. Life doesn’t work that way.

I want to be your strength when you simply cannot cope, when you come to me with the world on your shoulders, when your spine cannot carry the weight you hold.

I want to be your hope. I want to be the one who doesn’t walk away when things get tough. I want to be the one who proves to you that people can still win this war of love.

I want to be the one who shows you that some people still stay during the dark times, that some people still fight. I want to be your light.

I want to be your best when you are not your best. I will not judge you for your sadness, I will not resent your for your flaws. When life gets rough, know that I will always be there to hold your hand, I will always be there to turn off the world for you. I don’t want you to think that you ever have to do this by yourself.

I am with you because I want to be a part of your life — your whole life; through the good and the bad. I am with you because my heart feels compelled to beat for yours, and I will continue to choose you through the hurdles and through the highs. I know that life kicks your teeth in sometimes, and I may not know how to fix every shard of hurt and harm, but I do know how to love you — and I will love you deeply whenever things come to be too much, whenever you need a crutch.

I don’t want a fifty-fifty relationship. Life doesn’t work that way; it is real, not perfect. There are going to be moments where we will have to be more for one another, where we will have to build the other up, and I cannot wait to grow with you in those ways. I cannot wait to show you just how much I can love you when you need it the most, for I know you will do the exact same for me.
