From Our Readers: When the Time is Right

We have to wait.

When the Time is Right

To My Young Love,

Older people say we're both too young to be in love. Maybe we're too young to be in a relationship, but I think we're never too young to feel love and to be in love. And I'm sure that the love we had was not just any ordinary love. It's not the kind of love that easily diminishes as time continues to tick by because our love has flourished beautifully as we got older.

However, time has a way of messing with so many things and with so many people. Unfortunately, time got us. Some people would say that we should fight for "us" if we really love each other. But that's the thing, it's not simply just about having love because love is not enough. It will never be. Just think of it this way, when you want to have chocolate cake, you can't have it if your only ingredient is chocolate because you'll need a whole lot of other ingredients. In a similar way, relationships are like that. You can't just have love. It may be the main ingredient—like how the chocolate is—but there are a lot of stuff you need. You need to have trust, patience, honesty, and the list goes on. The other important thing next to love, which messed with us badly, is time.

That's why we had to let go. Why I had to let go. I was willing to make everything right, because if I pushed through with what we had, I know it would still end sooner or later because we lacked one foundation. We lacked one thing. It may not seem much, but sometimes the smallest things are the ones that really matter. It's important to note that we had everything except one thing. If we got it right, we could have made it work.

So how do we have time work for us? Well, that's why it's called time. We have to wait. And I would be more than willing to risk waiting. For the right relationship would be able to stand the test of time. As for now, we are indeed young. We have so much more to see and more people to know. Let's just take the moments that time would give us as an opportunity to discover, to learn, to know, and to love more. Maybe time doesn't want us to miss out on anything right now because when the time is right, we can finally have all the moments we need. We wouldn't have regrets because time would have fixed everything that was broken before.


From The One Who Trusts In Time

Maybe we're too young to be in a relationship, but I think we're never too young to feel love and to be in love.

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"
