Read These When You're Overwhelmed By Your Feelings
We get how you truly feel, Candy Girls.

We all have our own #feels. #Feels about the death of a loved one, about a friend who moved to another country, about our insecurities that seem to get the best of us on most days, about that one person we just can't seem to let go of, about cutting our hair to a length that most people aren't used to, about the bullies who still have an effect on us even years after we've graduated from high school, and about so much more.

In the past, we were told to keep these feelings to ourselves or within the pages of our journals—far away, out of sight, hidden from the eyes of people who will judge us endlessly. But this time, in this day and age where everyone can air out their most private feelings anywhere and any time, we are encouraged to take control of them and share our stories so we can help other girls and let them know they're not alone in their struggles.

That's what we were hoping for when we put together the best pieces from Candymag.com's You! section and new pieces from some of our favorite writers and celebrities like On the Wings of Love and That Thing Called Tadhana director Antoinette Jadaone, actress Sofia Andres, #NoFilter's Jasmine Curtis Smith and Saab Magalona, blogger Regina Belmonte, spoken word artist Roch Lazarte, Popped series author Chinggay Labrador, Summit Books EIC Marla Miniano, and many more. 

We hope the essays in the Candy #FEELS book will encourage you to let your feelings consume you, make you cry, allow you to feel more, and finally, help you open up to new and exciting possibilities like inspiring young girls who are quietly sitting in their bedrooms while wishing someone understood how they truly feel.

Grab your copies of the Candy #FEELS book which is now available in bookstores nationwide for only P250. We encourage you to write down your own pieces to. Use the postcards that come with the book or log on to www.candymag.com/candy-feels and share your stories. Don't forget to tag us @candymagdotcom when you buy your copy or use the hashtag #CandyFeels so we can read your thoughts on the book.
