From Our Readers: Stop Waiting for Him to Come Back
Third week of March, you messaged me and told me about this guy who made you feel head over heels in love. I smiled as I read your message because finally you can move on from your past.
As a friend, you know that I will never get tired of hearing your stories about your love life. When you're happy, I'll be happy too.
So every day and every night, you never stopped saying his. You told me that you've already been talking for two days. You said that he is a friend's cousin and he really wants to meet you. I can see that he gave you butterflies in your stomach. He also made you believe that forever can still exist in this world full of bitterness and breakups. I can see the twinkle in your eyes every time you talked about him.
But your doubts didn't stop bothering you. You thought that maybe he really just can't get over his ex. You thought that he will just use you to move on from his past. I don't like that to happen to you that's why I told you to make sure that your heart is ready for whatever happens and that you make sure you're just not his rebound girl.
He told you one day that he will just fix some things and be back as soon as possible. You waited. The distance was hard for you, but you didn't give up. Days passed and you are still waiting for him to come back. Then you started to lose your hope and will to keep going. I even told you to think positively. I tried to remove all the negativity in you and helped you stay optimistic as long as you can.
Suddenly, your biggest fear came. He left a message. You should feel the euphoria but suddenly anxiety took its place. You heard that he went to another country to stay there for good, and that there's a possibility he won't come back. Your heart was shattered into pieces. I can see the sadness in your hopeless eyes.
Until now, you're still hoping that he will come back, at the right time, in God's perfect time. You believed that when everything's fine, you will find your way back to each other and accept the love you both deserve.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
After what happened, I am in awe of you for being strong despite those sleepless nights and endless nights when you cried yourself to sleep. I told you that easy come, easy go. For me, he came in your life easily, but made a long-lasting impression. He really did capture your heart.
You'll get over him as time goes by and you'll be able to tell yourself that you should thank him for leaving not just a mark, but lessons as well. I trust you.
Remember that I'll be by your side through ups and downs. I'm always here to remind you that you are loved. Please do not forget to love yourself too. Thank you for showing how tough a young lady can be. There are so many things to look forward to. Greater things will happen. I hope to see those eyes full of hope again. Keep your mind full of positive thoughts. Remember, endings are just beginnings.

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song
By: CJ Reyno
Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?
Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.
You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.
As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”
I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
Here's a fan art that I made for Lee Joo Young of Itaewon class! I've been making digital illustration since last year and I'm happy that I was able to see my improvements. I'm also happy to see people's reactions and support for my craft even though all of it are made through my phone (adobe illustrator) only ????. You don't actually have to use expensive or complicated medium as long as you know how to be creative and like what you're doing, then you can do it. ????
