Just the other day, I was doing things at the rooftop when I just noticed how beautiful the sunset was. It was a red-orange kind of sunset, with all the clouds and birds, and the city line making it scenic. It cannot be expressed enough in words.
I uttered in awe, “Ang ganda, ang sarap picture-an, kaso nasa baba cellphone ko.”

But on that day, I chose to let my eyes feast on the beautiful scenery in front of me and keep it in my memories instead of my gallery.

“I’ll stay here for a while and maybe in time, they will realized that I am right.”
No, they will not. Truth is, you are once again.. isolating yourself.
You thought it’s going to help. You thought people will miss you. You thought people will reach out sooner or later. Guess what? Most people don’t. People, left on their own, won’t even notice that your presence is gone. I know that you are in pain and you don’t have the energy to face the world. Yet, isolating yourself is not the answer.
Isolation makes you a prisoner of condemnation
The kind of condemnation that doesn’t come from the people around you but the condemnation created and especially constructed by your own self. You let yourself cling on to this “privacy” where in fact you are treating yourself as an “exile.” You distant yourself from people thinking that it would lessen…
As I look at our past messages, it’s kind of nostalgic. The sad and happy ones, greetings, jokes, down the nonsense topics. It’s been months since our communication ceased. When the response intervals came to hours, to days, and to weeks..Continue reading “Conversation Ended”→
