I never wanted to cut ties with people I met, people I’ve come across and people who I believe shaped the way I am now. But there are times when you need to sever your ties no matter how it hurts for the moment, because I know, in the long run… I’ll be far better for it.

What the hell am I talking about? Hahaha… perhaps I should begin, well at the beginning, this was brought about by a question posted to me by one friend.. where is this particular friend of ours… I said I don’t know, I haven’t talked to her in years.. and her response was… Why? You were supposed to be best friends….

(more…)

Letting go doesn’t mean I am weak… it simply means I am much stronger than ever coz I finally accepted to let go of someone that can never be mine…

At my age, what I ever wanted is to have a serious relationship.. Someone promised me that I was the one that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with… I hold on to that promise but I was betrayed and I have no choice so I finally decided to let go…

I love this domain… Letters From The Soul is my very first domain… and because this is my first… may sentimental value na sakin to. Call me emo or whatever I don’t give a damn… I got hurt kaya natural lang mag-emote noh.. This blog is so important to me… and now I’ve decided to give it up too… :( A few days from now this blog will change. No personal entries will be posted here. Personal entries and my guest blogger entries will be transferred to Stranded Thoughts. I am also planning to accept guest blog entries again but not here of course. If anyone here would like to become my guest blogger at http://strandedthoughts.com then just send me an email at admin[at]strandedthoughts.com. Di pa sya nakasetup ngayon, maybe next week ok na. And of course the topic is still about love. It’s ironic coz I don’t really believe in true love right now because of everything that happened in my life… but I just wanted to read something that is inspiring and motivating… something that would hopefully make me realize that love is not really that unfair…

I’ve already lost my zest in blogging… I told myself a week ago that if I didn’t get something that I wished for in this month then it’s time for me to stop writing personal entries here… I’ve already lost someone so dear to me… a best friend and a lover at the same time… I was betrayed.. I’ve already accepted that… Giving up is not really in my vocabulary pero pagdating sa emotions talo ako e… Ngayon lang to.. Makakaya ko rin to noh! Aja!

I am in the process of loving myself more… maybe that’s what I’ve been missing… OK… enough na sa pageemote… magpapalit pa ko ng wordpress theme!

“There are things that we never want to let go of, people we never want to leave behind. But keep in mind that letting go isn’t the end of the world, but it’s just the beginning of a new life…”

I just wanted to share this song to everyone… Tabi by Paraluman is one of my new favorite song right now! Enjoy!

Yes… I am in love… and I am still in love with the same person who hurted me…

I don’t know if I should trust you again. I am so afraid coz I am not sure if you’re telling the truth this time…

With all that’s happening right now I don’t know if I should follow what my heart says…. My mind is telling me to just move on and let you go but my heart says you’re the only person I wanna spend the rest of my life with and that’s one reason why i don’t want you to leave… I am still holding on while I can… but please prove it to me now that you’re telling the truth this time…

If you really love me then you know where to find me…. but if you’re not in love with me then please…..

just let me go… :(

moving on move on lyrics to gravity let me go gravity lyrics Breaking Up break up  you’re on to me and all over me... picture

Something always brings me back to you.
It never takes too long.
No matter what I say or do I’ll still feel you here ’til the moment I’m gone.

You hold me without touch.
You keep me without chains.

I never wanted anything so much than to drown in your love and not feel your rain.
Set me free, leave me be. I don’t want to fall another moment into your gravity.
Here I am and I stand so tall, just the way I’m supposed to be.
But you’re on to me and all over me.

You loved me ’cause I’m fragile.
When I thought that I was strong.

But you touch me for a little while and all my fragile strength is gone.
Set me free, leave me be. I don’t want to fall another moment into your gravity.
Here I am and I stand so tall, just the way I’m supposed to be.
But you’re on to me and all over me.

I live here on my knees as I try to make you see
that you’re everything I think I need here on the ground.
But you’re neither friend nor foe though I can’t seem to let you go.
The one thing that I still know is that you’re keeping me down

You’re keeping me down,
You’re on to me, you’re on to me and all over
Something always brings me back to you
It never takes too long…

you promise the promise promise me Love i promise you i promise  The Promise picture

The Promise

I’m sorry if I am behaving like this again. I am not runn¡ng away… I promised that I will wait for you no matter how long it would take so you have nothing to worry because I am just right here… still here… and will always be here for you. Just think that I am in a “semi-hiatus mode” for now. The online thing is like an addiction for me and it’s not easy to avoid the things that I got addicted to in an instant. Do you know how hard it is? Hmmm… Why semi-hiatus mode? Because I would only go online whenever it is necessary. You know… I have deadlines to beat. When I am done, I turned off my computer right away unlike before that I didn’t even turned it off even while sleeping. Then I just stay here at home and tried to relax my m¡nd…

I know I am always emotional but since you’ve been away, I become more emotional than ever. My doctor advised me to avoid any kind of stressors for now. I’ve already tried different ways to handle it but it didn’t work for me. I already did the “Accept” and “Adapt” thing but what happened was that I just supressed my feelings ’til it came to a point that I can’t take it anymore…

Don’t get me wrong okay? I am not an addict. Maybe I am just crazy… crazy in lοve with you… Are there any rehabilitation centers for someone like me? If falling in lοve with you is an addiction then I would choose to remain this way forever… I will never let you go

Letting Go

10 Breakup Must-do’s

1. Be Realistic

Don’t over-exaggerate your ex’s good points and under-acknowledge their bad. Do not put your ex on a pedestal!

The funny thing about being ‘dumped’ is that we unconsciously build up our ex’s worth in our minds. We start to make them into better beings than they really are, erroneously making them to be more powerful and ‘needed’ influences in our lives. Unfortunately, while we are building them up to Higher Power status in our minds, they are ripping our worth to shreds in order to find the strength to leave us.

2. Accept It

Accept that the breakup did occur and that the relationship is over. By refusing to accept this you are only (more…)

Anyone who has gone through the agony of losing someone he/she loves so much will still wish against all odds to have that love back again. But sometimes a love lost is a love gone forever. No amount of hope can bring back to life a relationship that just died a natural death. Set yourself free, let your heart spread its wings and fly. Remember, it may rain for 40 days and 40 nights, but still it will not rain forever. One day the pouring will stop and there will be plenty of branches where you can find rest. One of these is where you will build your nest and start over again. It’s never too late. you may find love and lose it but, WHEN LOVE DIES YOU NEVER DIE WITH IT. You cannot be a redeemer all your life. The best way to weigh a relationship is through the test of fire. You cannot be a sober with your mistake forever.

We all fall and make wrong decisions but our blunders are not meant to bury us deep in misery but to teach us the valued lessons of life. Loving is always a learning process.. with love we learn how to CARE AND SACRIFICE. we learn to SHARE AND REACH OUT. We learn to be UNSELFISH AND GIVE MORE THAN WE CAN. Then, when everything doesn’t end well, we learn how it feels like to fall and get hurt. But learning doesn’t have to end there. After our fall, we strive to get back on our feet and move on. This is where we learn that LIFE DOESN’T END WHERE OUR HEARTACHES BEGIN. THERES NO FUTURE FOR RELATIONSHIP OF LIES AND SELFISHNESS. Its true, there is life in love. But, there can still be life even after losing love if you leave the past behind and let your heart heal and give you the chance to find yourself again. The success of a relationship lies not only in the beauty of its beginning but in its consistency. Make a choice not on impulse but a decision based on a healthy balance of mind and heart. Let us always remember that…HAPPINESS IS NOT A MATTER OF DESTINY BUT A MATTER OF CHOICE. There comes a time in our lives when we chance upon someone so nice and beautiful and we just find ourselves getting so intensely attracted to that person. This feeling soon becomes a part of our everyday lives and eventually consumes our thoughts and actions. The sad part of it is when we begin to realize that this person feels nothing more for us than friendship. We start our desperate attempt to get noticed and be closer but in the end our efforts are still unrewarded and we end up being sorry for ourselves. YOU DON’T HAVE TO FORGET SOMEONE YOU LOVE, WHAT YOU NEED TO LEARN IS HOW TO ACCEPT THE VERDICT OF REALITY WITHOUT BEING BITTER OR SORRY FOR YOURSELF. YOU WOULD BE BETTER OFF GIVING THAT DEDICATION AND LOVE TO SOMEONE MORE DESERVING.

Don’t let your heart run your life, be sensible and let your mind speak for itself. Listen not only to your feelings but to reason as well. Always remember that if you lose someone today, it means that someone better is coming tomorrow. IF YOU LOSE LOVE, IT DOESN’T MEAN THAT YOU HAVE FAILED IN LOVE. CRY IF YOU HAVE TO BUT MAKE SURE THAT TEARS WASH AWAY THE HURT AND THE BITTERNESS THAT THE PAST LEFT YOU WITH. LET GO OF YESTERDAY AND LOVE WILL FIND ITS WAY BACK TO YOU. And when it does, pray that it may be the love that will stay and last a lifetime. A woman on the rebound could easily fall for sweeping emotions and be made to falsely believe that she finally stumbled upon the right person..when what she just found is only someone to cover up for the love she lost. A person who makes a promise with words and not with actions may never live up to fulfill them.

ITS TRUE THAT LOVE CAN WAIT FOREVER BUT IT IS CRAZY TO STUBBORNLY HOPE FOR SOMEONE WHO DOESN’T EVEN CARE OR UNDERSTAND HOW YOU FEEL. Love makes us see the things through rose-colored glasses. Most of the time, we fail to recognize the danger sign that light up along our way. This feeling you have nurtured for so long isn’t healthy anymore. You must realize that you have to let go now before it consumes you and your sanity. There is always a time to think and stop. A time to be sensible and not to allow our hearts to rule over our heads. YOU DESERVE TO BE HAPPY NOT IN THE ARMS OF A PERSON WHO KEEPS YOU WAITING BUT IN THE ARMS OF SOMEONE WHO WILL TAKE YOU NOW AND LOVE YOU FOREVER. If loving a person who is attached to someone else is a crime, then, maybe, many of us would have been jailed long before we realize what its consequences could have been. Loving someone is never a sin..it’s what people do out of love that sometimes makes it all wrong. The selfish desire to want that person is what makes it a sin. DON’T THINK ONLY OF YOUR FEELINGS FOR REAL LOVE DOESN’T HAVE A PLACE FOR SELFISH PEOPLE. When there is love, there is always sacrifices. When we love someone, we never easily give up on that person. Even iF we get hurt badly we always try to find a way to ease the pain and learn to understand and forgive. Loving too much doesn’t hurt..it is when we expect this love to be reciprocated that we begin to seek approval and acceptance of the things we have done and when we are taken for granted and rejected, we curse the very same love that we once freely and happily offered. DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME WAITING FOR SOMEONE WHO NEVER REALLY CARED ABOUT HOW YOU WOULD HAVE FELT. OPEN YOUR HEART AGAIN AND GIVE YOURSELF THE CHANCE TO FIND THE PERSON WHO WOULD MAKE LOVING WORTH THE PAIN AND THE SACRIFICE. Just like anything else, our love grows weak and dies, if not taken cared of. It can keep up with pain only to a certain extent. Beyond that, it withers without any hope of recovery and soon dies. GOD WAKES US IN THE MIDST OF A STORM TO TEACH US A LESSON. HE TAKES AWAY PEOPLE WE LOVE SO WE CAN LEARN TO VALUE LOVE ITSELF. HE MAKES US CRY SO HARD SO WE CAN SEE CLEARLY WHEN WE OPEN OUR EYES. HE MAKES US BITTER SO WE CAN REALIZE THAT THERE IS NO GENUINE HAPPINESS IF WE THINK ONLY OF OUR OWN NEEDS AND NOT OF OTHERS.

Relationships built on jealousy and selfishness are doomed from the very beginning. The hardest part of losing love is letting go and moving on. Most of us cry endlessly over things that could have been but never will be. God allows us to experience pain to make us stronger and better persons. He will see us through the most trying and difficult times in our lives and only if we put our trust in Him can we learn to find joy in our tears and happiness in our sorrows. In many failed relationships, separation comes as the inevitable choice but moving on always proves to be twice as difficult as letting go. Sometimes, our choice to hold on is beyond the control of circumstances. Letting go is a decision that can never be dictated on us.

It is resolution we make to ourselves. Acceptance is the key to a new beginning and time is the healer of all wounds. Even if the storm casts its fearful shadow, there will always be light after our darkness and loneliest moments. There is always a hope for those who believe. There is always a chance for those who try.

LOSING SOMEONE WE LOVE MAY NOT BE A LOSS AT ALL BUT A BLESSING BECAUSE SOMEONE EVEN MORE DESERVING IS YET TO COME. There is nothing wrong in expressing our feelings to someone we love, but WE MUST ALWAYS BE SENSITIVE TO THE SIGNALS THAT TELL US WHEN TO RATIONALIZE AND BE SENSIBLE. There comes a time in our lives when we would fall for someone who wouldn’t be as interested as we are because his/her attention is focused on someone else. There are many times when we love but don’t get love in return. THERE ARE TIMES WHEN THE SIGN AHEAD SAYS STOP BUT WE STILL STUBBORNLY HEAD ON. We would say our love is unconditional but if it really is, then we should never feel bad. But why do we get frustrated when love turns sour? Because we still subconsciously seek acceptance and assurance from the people we care about. BEING IN LOVE CAN BE THE MOST WONDERFUL THING WE COULD EXPERIENCE BUT IF THE FEELING BEGINS TO CONSUME OUR WHOLE BEINGS, THEN WE HAVE TO STOP AND LET OUR MINDS AND NOT OUR HEARTS DICTATE OUR ACTIONS. ONLY WHEN WE LEARN TO ACCEPT OUR FATE AND UNDERSTAND THE MEANING OF OUR FAILURES CAN WE TRULY GO ON WITH LIFE…. WITHOUT HAVING TO LOOK BACK AND CRY OVER THE THINGS THAT COULD HAVE BEEN BUT WILL NEVER BE…
