Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, wanders into your stupid life. You give them a piece of you. They didn’t ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like “maybe we should just be friends” turns ito a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It’s a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love.

The hardships that you might be facing right now is just half of the amount of happiness that you will experience in return.

Don’t make her wait for you just because you know she will.

Kapag dumating ka na sa point na naiisip mo nang bumitaw, isipin mo muna kung bakit ka kumapit ng ganyan katagal.

Translation: If you come to a point where you want to let go of it all, think of why you held on for so long.

The worst feeling is when someone makes you feel special, then suddenly leaves you hanging and you have to act like you don’t care at all.

The scariest thing about distance is that you don’t know whether they’ll miss you or forget you.

It’s unbelievable how fast people can change. One day, you mean everything. The next day, you don’t even exist.
