I am constantly reminding people not to feel sad.
That things will be perfectly fine again, in time. That it’s not an option to be lonely when you have the choice to be happy. That all you need is a good long sleep, a tight hug, and phrases like “You’ll be fine” and “I’ll always be here”. That everything is temporary. And sadness is one of those temporary feelings.
But if someone tells me the same thing, I would not have listen.
Don’t worry, I learned my lesson.
I will not offer you anything you do not need. You have made it clear that we were not whom you needed. And that’s okay. I have long known that you do not have the ability to care for anyone other than yourself.
You are selfish. And I loved and despised that about you.
But we can’t fake connection. I have lost it and you probably haven’t felt that in the first place. I am tired of your whims and all your grandiloquent prose.
I am dedicating this post for you, even when you don’t deserve my words. In fact, you don’t deserve anything I had given you.
You were the first one to do it. I am just cutting loose.

So I attended a seminar earlier this afternoon. The theme was “Angkan: Commemorating the Maguindanao Massacre”. Will post my realizations about that topic maybe this weekend. Hay, college.
And yeah, the second photo was taken at the second floor of our university. When I came to school this morning, the lines were still hanging just a few meters above the ground. Then, that happened. Hihi. I hope to see the little stars light up soon. <3 It’s really cool to see them up, and really pretty. :-)
I think we all need a hug.
#i love you all
Cyber hug to all my followers. *HUUUUUUUGS YOUUUUU*
I hope someone would hug you today. Or give someone a hug. Because you can never go wrong with hugs, it always need to be given back. :-)
Or tell yourself that “Today may be hard, but tomorrow’s going to be better.”
You can always repeat that statement to yourself, because tomorrows never cease. At least if you never let it. :-)
I love sunrise. I really do. It calms my mind and my body.
It doesn’t matter if it’s just in photographs, the effect would be just the same.
"I have often made the mistake of falling in love with strangers. No, not strangers— random people who exist on the streets, in your neighborhood, in school or at work, souls who float but never take anchor. I meant strangers I know by name but could never quite pin down the color of their eyes, strangers I have known for a while but cannot identify anything beyond the sound of their voices or the crooked curves of their smiles. I have often invested myself in strangers. You see, it’s so much easier to trust the unknown because they have not disappointed you yet."
"And every night I would think of you. Now that I can no longer see you, I realize how much I needed you. School is incredibly boring, but as a matter of self-discipline I am going to all my classes and doing all the assignments. Everything seems pointless since you left."
