An Open Letter to the Guy I’m Letting Go

An Open Letter to the Guy I'm Letting Go

To the guy, I’m letting go,

Hey there, my love! Thank you for being part of my life. Thank you for being my lamp in my darkest days. Thank you for the “good morning texts”, “the goodnight texts”, the “how are you’s?” and thank you for pushing me all the time to be a better person.

You are an amazing person.

Thank you for making me happy even in a short period of time. The feels with those beautiful butterflies in my tummy. The promises. The future we once planned together. Those were the things I will forever treasure love. Indeed, you made my life happier.

But I think I can’t be with you any longer. Sorry if I have to let you go now. Sorry if I can’t fulfill my promise anymore. To stay no matter what. I have been trying really hard to make this work. But I think I have lost hope now. I don’t wanna leave you but I just can’t do this anymore. You were the one who turned your back first. I can’t stay knowing that you’re slowly leaving me. I’m done fighting for your love, for your attention, for us. You have shown enough. I can’t fight anymore. I’ve already fought hard enough for you to stay. I was busy saving you not knowing that I’m losing myself in the process. Enough is enough. I need to save myself.

I realized that I can’t continue fighting for a person who doesn’t want to be fought for. Maybe it’s time to let you go. Maybe it’s time for me to accept the fact that we are walking now on different paths.

I’m letting go of every butterfly that I felt every time your name pop up on my phone. I’m letting go of every sensation that I felt every time I hear your voice. I’m letting go of this overwhelming feeling every time I see your deep and captivating eyes.

I’m letting go of the sweet good mornings and goodnights. I’m letting go of the shy moments. I’m letting go of these never-ending thoughts at 2 AM.

I’m letting go of the idea of us. Every daydream.

I’m letting go of the future that I envisioned with you. I’m letting go of every song that reminds me of you. I’m letting go of every composed letters I’ve spent hours or even days to write. Just to translate my feelings into words. I’m letting go of the sleepless nights. I’m letting go of every hope in my soul.

I’m letting go of everything. Every. Single. Thing. I’m letting go of you.

Because I realized I’m the only one who remained holding and gripping to that something that never really mattered.

Don’t worry about me. Yes, it’s going to be very hard. You see, letting you go is no joke. It’s not as easy as 1,2,3. It will surely break my heart even more. Life would be very difficult without you. As you’ve become such an important part of it. And will probably require me enough time to put back all the pieces, to be okay, to move forward and to be in love again. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow. But rest assured, I will.

But it doesn’t mean I’ll forget about you. I’ll always hold space in my heart for you. I’ll always remember things we shared that were deeper. I’ll remember it all with some sadness and also some joy, but always with gratitude. I’ve let you all go with love.

You are now free

Wishing you happiness,

The girl who’s done fighting.

In The Crux Of Lost Dreams

In The Crux Of Lost Dreams

Ruminating in the visions of what could be,I mellowed to the burden of the expectations whose existence no one could see.Lost in a land that convoluted its being into the beauty of forever,Wearied by the nonchalance of my circumstance, I buried myself in the tireless strive of my endeavours

Metaphors of irony struck their symphony in the tale I forged in,Enchanting the ones I meet with a smile, submerging and silencing a storm within,To make hay while the sun shines, they tried to tame my soul,Alas, the fire within me burned their hands, as they mercilessly tried to reach their goal.

A Reminder To Breathe

A Reminder To Breathe

Often we feel imposters in our lives, not embracing the joy of the now. The power of being present in the moment we forge in belies in the acceptance of what we are. To be or not to be the ones we are deemed to be, to not know what our life would be is often the stem of our angst and doubt. Uncertainty is the only truth about life, as much planning and having a definite vision about what your existence should reflect, we need to understand that no matter what path we hail for we to be the one we are destined to forge. Life never turns out to be how we envisioned it to be, but it always leads to something that forges to be in our best interests.

The journey we stride upon pivots around the focal point of believing in ourselves. We do not need to

On The Ugliness Of Healing

On The Ugliness Of Healing

Darkness in its entirety hounds us in the silence of the looms,Ensnaring the voice of doubt in our mind to leave no room.Sometimes the light we seek sublimes under the shades of grey,And we wish to hide in a land, where our hearts are not left astrayed.

Betrayal creeps in its hinds mighty and galore,Tormenting us with no bounds, leaving us gasping for a sip of amour.Pain hails in its fangs deep,Slicing and rendering the soul in every vow it is deemed to keep.

The tale of survival often seems too good to be true,No one knows the concealed wounds that hid under its sinew

What’s The Difference Between A Vacation In A Honeymoon?

Whats The Difference Between A Vacation In A Honeymoon

For me personally, I see a massive difference between a vacation and a honeymoon. You take a vacation once or twice a year for some time to enjoy yourself and rest and recharge from life responsibilities for a while.

You’re able to get away with your family or your friends or maybe take a solo vacation, whatever works for you. I have taken some fantastic vacations with my family growing up. We spent a week in ocean city Maryland and it was awesome. We still bring up memories of those trips years later. I have also been on trips with one of my best friends, to cape cod and a birthday trip to Philly. These were amazing vacations, filled with memories that I will forever remember and that will last a lifetime.
