From Our Readers: Respectfully Yours, A Memory You've Left Behind

You could have told me where I went wrong and granted me a chance to correct them.
ART Trixie Ison

If you're reading this letter, I reckon you didn't toss it off the moment it was handed to you and I thank you for that. You might be confused, annoyed, or might be in jest right now towards me and this letter. I wish to talk to you in person. I would really want that because I want this to be more realistic. I want to see you as you would get into what I have in mind. Nevertheless, I chose this medium because I'm better at writing my thoughts than saying them out loud.

I honestly don't know how you see me as a person right now, but I am writing every word with an inference that you would never want me in your life anymore. I might be wrong. However, my judgment is telling me that somehow, I'm on the right track. With this in mind, I call for your openheartedness as we move forward.

READYou'll Forever Be My Favorite Secret

I'll start with I hate you. Yes, I hate you. As I write this letter, I still do. I hate you for putting me in one of my life's difficult situations that I never thought I could withstand. And I even hate you more that you left me in that situation, alone and helpless. I was confused with what was going on that time. I expected you to pull me off from that trail, but you even made it harder for me to fathom everything. I don't know if I should have drawn a line between cowardice and cruelty because you made me suffer both. You could have let me perceive things in the same manner as you did. You could have told me where I went wrong and granted me a chance to correct them. Because you made me feel that there was us, that everything was worth the time and effort, that if I let you down, what we had would serve as patches to cover my lapses. Instead, you let me drown in sorrow and vagueness. And I hate you that after what you did, I still have to end the day compelling myself to believe that it is rightful to hate you. For deep inside...

I miss you. I miss you that it hurts seeing you, hearing your voice, and even feeling your warmth from a distance. It's distressing that you literally closed your doors for me and made me feel like I'm a total stranger. I remember those times where I had to pretend that you were not on the same spot as I was just to contain the throbbing in my chest and the heavy breathing. I envy those people who can sit beside you, who can call your name, who can see a clear view of your face and get a better look at you. I wish we could live in our old photos. Those times where I can just simply reach for your face and watch your brown eyes glow as you smile , where I can just rub my skin unto you to feel your presence, where I can just hold your hand so that I'll be at ease knowing that you're beside me. With all these said, without a doubt...

I still love you. I'm sorry but I genuinely do. That short period of time that we shared together made me realize that I was capable of loving and being loved after my first heartbreak. And this entire time that you were away, this entire time that I've been yearning for you, it was a major turning point. No rush, I'll stay put. We will be taking different roads to different places. I hope that once our paths will come across, maybe... just maybe, you will be ready to embrace me back to your life again.

I still love you. I'm sorry but I genuinely do. That short period of time that we shared together made me realize that I was capable of loving and being loved after my first heartbreak.

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
