From Our Readers: To the One Who Gave Me Faith in Life Again

You made me happy.
ART Trixie Ison

I have always asked myself if someone is really out there to be my soul mate. I have prayed to God countless of times for Him to make me known to her. I have envied every couple that I see and sometimes it turns to me being bitter with their happy and kilig moments. I have enjoyed the company of solitude.

Yes, I am a lone wolf. I am a misanthrope. Yes, I am alone.

READYou Broke My Heart Unconsciously

This was me before I met you. I've always told myself that I'm not the "relationship" type of guy. I was this guy who was shy and timid with no motivation to do anything. I was this zombie who craved for a brain and had forgotten that heart was also important for our survival. I was the guy who became rigid with rules, trying to stick to my goals that I sacrificed having good company with others. I always wanted to be in my room, curled up with my pillow, thinking about how I view my life with misery. I hated the couples that I'd see maybe because I wanted to experience it, too. The feeling of loving someone and most especially the feeling of being loved by someone. This is living but with no will.

Then you came. You gave my world a 360-degree turn-around. I broke those stupid rules and let go of those inhibitions deep within my soul. I learned a lot about myself. I learned things that I didn't know I was capable of doing. I had the courage; I had the guts to even ask you out. I'd go to school very early to be with you and to help you study even if I had already studied at home. I'm only me when I'm with you. I was able to share umbrellas with you, I was able to open a door for you, and I was able to do things that you asked me to. I didn't know how to express I care until you came. I learned how to deal with mood swings of girls.

READIt Used To Be Us

You knew all my embarrassing moments. You knew how to shut me up. You know how to make me kilig. You knew how to make me laugh. You knew my tendencies to have mood swings. You knew most of my secrets, good or bad that my parents don't even know. You told me stories about your life that inspire me.

You were the first girl that made my tears fall. You taught me how to act like a real man in different situations. You made me happy. You made me jealous. You made me sad. You helped me mature even in the slightest of ways.

It is not every day that I get to meet an amazing girl like you. You are one in a million. You changed a man's life. You made my life so crazy but in the most beautiful way. And for the first time in my life, I didn't want to be alone. I just wanted to be beside you as we look up at the stars. It seems that I started breathing oxygen once again. You helped me yearn again for my tomorrow.

You made my life so crazy but in the most beautiful way. And for the first time in my life, I didn't want to be alone.

We may not end up being together, I am still glad that I met you.

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
