#OTWOLFightForLove: How Do You Make People Stay?

A few thoughts and some feelings thanks to last night's On the Wings of Love episode.

How do you make him stay? Can you really make him stay?

You can try, but you can't. He has choices to make and decisions to stand for. Because sometimes life happens and our hearts can get in the way. So let him walk away, let him go when he loosens your grip from the hands that used to answer back to your touch. Let him have his taste of freedom even for a day, a week, a month, a year and remind him how life before you feels like. But have faith, have faith that when he senses the void, the space from where he deleted you from, his loss, he'll come back. Because he'll see that you're greater than the depth and width of all the spaces he begged from you.

You can't make him stay. You just have to let him open his arms, stretch his legs, and take the first of a thousand footsteps away from you. Because sometimes, he has to find his way—figure out how to make it through his own life. Because sometimes he has to happen before love happens, and you just have to put your hands together and pray. You just have to pray that, while he's walking and taking different roads in life, one of his turns is the road that will lead him back to you and that by then, he's ready to take the first of a thousand footsteps to stand by you.

You can't make him stay. You just have to trust in him, put your faith in all the ups and downs, mornings and nights, and sunshines and gloomy days you've both shared, and hold on to the fact that—in the words of Lea and her mom—if he really did love you, he'd come back for you.

Kapag mahal ka, babalikan ka.

And if and when he returns, you're still at the end of the rough road waiting, then you know it's meant to be. That you're meant to be. That your names were etched in stone. And maybe this time around, just maybe, you can hold each other's hands and take that walk again in life. Together.

A Simple Learner Who's a Great Pretender

Maybe I'm just a learner, not a weirdo. A learner that knows how to listen and pretend. A simple learner who's a great pretender. Pretending to be slightly dumb enough not to be judged and criticized by those who do not appreciate my existence. We surround ourselves with people who's levels are either beyond or below our intellectual behavior, because as for reality, people may use you either for their success or your downfall. Since then, people tend to judge someone who has an intellect with things they shouldn't be. Making them a criticizer, and most of all, calling them weird.

Honestly, I'm one of this "weirdo" who actually loves to learn things, and for the record, I'm bullied and stressed out for making myself not to learn more and go with the flow to dumbness I had. Have you ever feel being assigned to some task where you know every process to make it easier and faster to finish but turns out to hesitate to voice out because some of your mates put themselves in charge. There are times where I know what to do, what to say, or how to react, but kept myself silent and pretend not to know anything that may help us. Maybe it's a good thing to just go with their ideas and learn from their perspectives, but sometimes you can't control it and says something, and once again called to be a weirdo and let you finish the work by yourself.

It's annoying that you only know one process yet they gave you the whole work and let you finish it by yourself because they insist that "MAGALING KA DIBA?". It's not your fault being an intellectual person, knowing such things that may help you to pursue your dreams, and have the basic knowledge about something. You don't need to know everything, just the basics. And as for those people who do not appreciate your existence, let them be and continue what's the best for you. In some cases, you'll be annoyed by this but most of the time you'll be thankful for it. Not for now but maybe later. Just be yourself either a weirdo, a great pretender, or a simple learner, and always remember to lower your voice and behavior because no one loves that.

Just be a great pretender not to hear any runts and be a good learner that appreciates everything. It's out of nowhere thoughts of mine, but simply I leave you this my favorite life quotation; "Don't introduce yourself, Let your success introduce you"
