Worth Sharing Wednesdays # 3

"Do you think you weren't loved enough?"

She tilted her head and looked at me. Then she gave a sharp little nod. "Somewhere between 'not enough' and 'not at all.' I was hungry for love. Just once, I wanted to know what it was like to get my fill of it - to be fed so much love I couldn't take any more. Just once."

- Norwegian Wood, Haruki Murakami

Worth Sharing Wednesdays # 2

"Love will always persevere no matter what happens in your life, so once you have it, nurture it and never let it go. Through death and loss and damage and lust, love remains faithful and true. It never wavers, it merely waits patiently until you decide to let it in.

You can lose yourself a million times over, but your heart will always know who you are. In every wound and place on emptiness, love provides a light that guides you through the darkness.

It relentlessly seeks you out and stops at nothing to find you.

Love always finds you.

And when it does, it will bring you home."

- His Wounded Light, Christine Brae

Worth Sharing Wednesdays # 1

"I'll never love like that again."

"You're right, but you don't have to be so fatalistic. There's no sense in comparing loves because every one is different. The things you love about them are different. Your experiences together, memories, common interests - all different. But just because you'll never love the same doesn't mean you won't love better."

Honey, That's Not Love

But honey, you know nothing about love. 

It's not love if it's only benefiting you, not both of you. 

It's not love if all you did was made her crazy. 

It's not love if you're only craving for the physical stuff. 

It's not love if you claim you're telling the truth when in fact you just selectively tell her what you want her to know.

It's not love when you can stand not speaking to her for days.

It’s not love if you’re just leading her on.

That's not love, my dear. 

You think it is because you're the only one feeling it. She loved you so damn hard, you know. I saw the way she submitted herself to you. She gave you everything she had, not caring if she's left with nothing. She just wanted you to be happy. She loved you in ways you can't love her. But you just threw it away, telling yourself you deserve so much better when she already gave her best. She loved you too much, too hard that she'll always take you back no matter how many times you screwed up. 

That's her fault I guess, loving the ones who know nothing about love; loving the lost, the broken.

But it's your fault too, for not appreciating the love she's willing to give.

Someday, the universe will give back all the love she gave you that you took for granted. To another guy who knows her worth, someone who knows how to take care of her. And when that day comes, that's when you'll realize that you lost the moon while chasing after dead stars and bright, deceiving meteorites.

Constant Conversations # 3

"Siguro hindi ako girlfriend material. Siguro hanggang dito lang yung capability ko na magmahal. Hanggang fling lang. Hanggang fubu lang. Siguro may ginawa ako sa past life ko kaya hanggang dito lang yung kaya ko."

"Siguro rin kasi, di mo pa nakikilala yung taong para sayo."
