From Our Readers: To My First Love

I lost track of time after I left you.
ART Trixie Ison

It's been a while since we last talked and met. It should've been a year of being madly in love with you again. I lost track of time after I left you. Yes, I did lose you but it seems that you never left. You remained in here even after you hurted me so many times. I am a fool for love, you could say that. I know you know why I left. It was because all you were asking for was too much from what I am capable of giving. I was so torn between what my heart was saying and what my mind was telling me. Honestly, I saw my life with you, you never missed my plans. You know that we dreamed together. We made plans for each other and we promised ourselves it would be us til the end. But what happened? What went wrong? What did I do to deserve this?


READI Fell For You, You Fell For Her

Everything was going steady after we found our way back from our first break up. But it seemed like we're having a hard time coping up with each other. I was so stressed back then with school and you. I can't keep up with what was happening with my life so I thought of leaving you and just giving up but I never did that because I really can't. You were so special to me. But problems and misunderstadings came and you left me again for the nth time and that's what made me decide on leaving permanently. I decide to leave you behind and start another chapter of my life with myself first. I wanted to find and fix myself back then. You wouldn't understand but I was beginning to see my future without you.

READYou Treat Me Like a Friend, But I Want More Than That

I'm sorry. It was because you were becoming so vulnerable and dependent that I couldn't take it anymore. I didn't want you to become like that but you were starting to so it made me think of leaving and starting on my own once again. I wanted to distress myself from this pain and tiredness I was feeling. I told you that you wouldn't understand because you weren't in my shoes. It also confused me how honest you were with your feelings because you started to make a move on your ex once again. We had said "I love you" to each other a few weeks ago only to find out that you're back together with her. Everything for me back then fell apart because a big part of me was taken away. There was never a moment that I didn't think of you and how you are doing. Are you happy? The thought of getting back together never left my mind but it also made me realize that I should be happier with this decision and feel grateful that there's also someone giving me much more happiness now.


READTo Those People I Carry in My Heart

I want to apologize for everything that I've caused you. I want you to know that you'll always have a space in my heart. And I hope I'm still welcome in yours, too, but as a friend. I would be so happy if you would allow me to be. I can't wait to see and talk to you again. I wish you happiness, King.

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"
