What It's Like to Wait for the Right Person to Love
Waiting isn't really a popular option in this day and age, what with everything "instant" populating stores and social media. But for some of us, waiting is still the best option especially when it comes to finding love.
In our Candy Feels section, there are a lot of Candy Girls who have written about their decision to wait for the right person to come along before falling in love. These are letters addressed to the future love of their lives and letters that explain why they're sticking to their decision of waiting.
Isabelline: The Joy of Waiting for a Love Worth Finding
"People say that you know you're ready for love when you're also ready to get hurt. Pain is the opposite of love, but pain can also be prevented. How? By waiting. Yes, waiting, for the right time and right person. I'm not against young love because I, myself, have encountered it. I just want to share my thoughts on this struggle and give my fellow teens some advice to be stronger and responsible in this area of life.
Pain is the opposite of love, but pain can also be prevented. How? By waiting.
"To prevent heartbreak, one must really guard their hearts (Proverbs 4:23) and pray for their feelings. Most teens today rely on their short-term feelings, give their partners everything—which just cause them to get hurt in the end. That's why most young couples end in painful breakups."
Lorraine Balbaloza: To the Man I Will Fall in Love with in the Future
"I would love to help you mend your broken heart. I would love to make happy memories with you. As you go on with your life, I would also do the same. I will keep on going and let God rule our love story. I just haven't met you yet but I am getting ready for that.
"I can't wait to tell you how much I love you. I can't wait to tell everyone how lucky I am that I have you. I know this will be a tough journey but one thing's for sure, this is worth waiting for. You are worth waiting for. This may take months and even years; I really don't care."
Abi Villanueva: Wait for a Man Who's Worth It
"Don't wish for a flawless, perfect man; wish for a man who's worth it. Wait for a man who's worth it. Save your heartbreak for the man who'll break your restrictions because if he's worth it, he'll never break your heart. He'll never let you cry. Yes, relationships are messy; it's supposed to be messy and that's the way it is. But it will be worth it if the man you're with is worth it.
"Wait for a man who's worth it. Wish for a man who will do what he says. If he says he'll call, he will. He makes promises and keeps it. He won't make you worry; he'll do all the worrying for you."

There was this guy I dated for a while but things didn't turn out well. I was so into him that one night I can't stop thinking about him, I've decided to send his MOM a message on facebook confessing how much I like her son. I wish it ended there but no. I had to make it so emotional, lengthy and detailed like the drama queen I am. Luckily, it went to message request so I'm hoping she hasn't really read it yet. Up until this day it makes me cringe whenever I think about it but hey, whenever it pops in my mind I make myself laugh too so thank you self for being unbelievably shameless and brave when it comes to love. I may age faster because I have made a lot of cringe-worthy moments that I constantly make faces out of embarrassment just reflecting on my antics but I know I've made more hilarious memories than what ifs and somehow that makes the disappointments feel more like assurances that I have gave it my all and I have lived as honest (maybe a little to honest) as I could. #ItsOnlyNatural #CanBnatural
I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
