From Our Readers: He Is Your Gravity
It has been years since you last saw him. Times were easier and happier then. But he broke your heart. You were loved and then suddenly, you weren't. It's easy to write it down because things look simpler in words. It doesn't get to you until you read your feelings out loud, emotions bursting from your chest, mind going wild with memories—things you wish to forget but can't.
You believed in destiny and then suddenly, you didn't. You didn't believe in second chances either, because you didn't want to get hurt again. So you occupied yourself with anything that would make you forget him. It worked for the most part, but the memories would visit you in your dreams and those made so much difference.
The day you saw him again, you didn't want that moment to count. You've finally made yourself believe that everything was going well until you saw him again. Weeks turned into months as you were forced to talk to him again. You tried to focus and things were fine for a while, but that wasn't enough for him. You knew right away what he wanted as soon as you loosened up around him, feeling the ice melt and vanish. It was happening too fast, but what was there felt less solid.
Was this a second chance in the making? You didn't know anymore. The feelings were still there, better than ever and truer than before. But you knew without forgiveness, none of them will matter. You know you weren't ready for something new.
The Earth keeps spinning, and you will never forget him. Can't you see? He brings so much light into your life and he means more to you than he'll ever know. To forget him, it's not as easy as flicking off a light switch because love never came so easy. With every turn the Earth makes, you look for him, silently in your dreams. It's always been him, but you try to deny it with every attempt to forget.
You can't ignore forces like these, just like the pull of gravity. The Earth spins around the sun, dancing its way through another year. But no matter how far or how long the distance between you two, you'll always be pulled back to each other, held down together no matter what. There's seven billion people in the world, so that definitely is something special.
If you don't want to say it's destiny, just see him as your gravity instead, your grounding force.

Hi! It's been so long since I planned to post my story in another platform aside from wattpad and now here I am, hoping that my story can be featured here.
My story is entitle "Who Are You," it's a tagalog-english teen fiction story so I hope, those filipinos who visit here can read my story!
WHO ARE YOU: PRELUDE
Sinungaling na ba ako kung sasabihin ko sa inyo ang pangalan ko? Hindi ako sure kung anong sasabihin kong pangalan ko pero may nagsasabi sa aking wag nalang magpakilala sa inyo.
May gusto lang naman akong itanong... Paano kung may makilala ka sa kasalukuyan na nagpapaalala sayo sa nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang nakilala mo sa kasalukuyan ay may tinatago pa lang sikreto na kahit siya mismo ay walang alam pero may kinalaman sa iyong nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang dalawang ito ay may koneksyon? Anong pipiliin mo? Ang nakilala mo sa nakaraan? O ang nagpakilala bilang ibang tao sa kasalukuyan? Past? Or Present?
There was this guy I dated for a while but things didn't turn out well. I was so into him that one night I can't stop thinking about him, I've decided to send his MOM a message on facebook confessing how much I like her son. I wish it ended there but no. I had to make it so emotional, lengthy and detailed like the drama queen I am. Luckily, it went to message request so I'm hoping she hasn't really read it yet. Up until this day it makes me cringe whenever I think about it but hey, whenever it pops in my mind I make myself laugh too so thank you self for being unbelievably shameless and brave when it comes to love. I may age faster because I have made a lot of cringe-worthy moments that I constantly make faces out of embarrassment just reflecting on my antics but I know I've made more hilarious memories than what ifs and somehow that makes the disappointments feel more like assurances that I have gave it my all and I have lived as honest (maybe a little to honest) as I could. #ItsOnlyNatural #CanBnatural
I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
