On Falling in Love and Learning From Heartbreak

"I hope you fall in love and it will hurt so bad."

I hope that once in this lifetime, you will bump into someone who will give you butterflies in your stomach just by looking into their eyes. He will get your number and he'll give you his.

You'll start talking, not knowing it's already two in the morning. He will tell you what keeps him up at night. He will tell you the mistakes he has done and how much he regrets them. You're going to open up to him like you're opening the jewelry box your great grandmother has passed on from generations. You'll be like the ballerina that dances at the top of that box and heedlessly slay away your fears and let your world revolve around him.

He will make you feel special. He will tell you his nickname as a child and it will make you feel like you know him more than anyone else. He will introduce you to his family and friends. He will initiate planning your future together and you will feel special.

But one day, it's already two am but you still haven't heard from him. You wouldn't even know if he's still up. He will repeat the mistakes you thought he regretted doing and he wouldn't say a word when you ask him why.

You won't find the little boy who has a cute nickname inside him anymore. It will feel like you haven't known him all along. He will no longer tell you about his sister who he used to talk about often. He will immediately change the subject when you begin to say, "You know what, someday…."

It will hurt you so bad you wouldn't know it's past two in the morning already and you've been awake since the previous night. You will cry and call his name, but he's not going to be there. You'll try calling him by his nickname because maybe he'll remember the person he told almost everything to. Still, not even a shadow of him.

It will hurt you so bad you can feel your heart break.

But after the pain, you will learn. You will set your standards higher because now, you know you deserve better. You deserve to know not just someone's nickname from 1997, but also the person he became and will become. You deserve more than just to be introduced to the people that matter to him. You deserve to be get known because they will surely find you amazing. You deserve more than just to be a part of his future plans, but to be a part of working the present to be together in the future.

You will realize that you're special without anyone making you feel like you are.

You will no longer allow anyone to hurt you just as much. And if anyone attempts to, you will know better than to allow yourself to reach the lowest point becuase you have become wiser and stronger.

And one day, you're going to bump into him again and there are no longer butterflies in your stomach when you look him in the eyes. He will apologize and you'll confidently say "Oh, it's okay." And yes, you definitely are.

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
