The Roller Coaster Ride

The Roller Coaster Ride

“If one day you wake up and you no longer care about me,” she says, “say so over our morning coffee and I will let you leave.”

“I will not ask you why. I will not ask you to stay one more night. I will give you a small smile to say that it is okay and that people lose feelings for all sorts of reasons and that I will survive.”

“So if it comes to it,” she says, “just say so. You should stay because you want to. You should leave if you need.”

Excerpt from a book I’ll never write 

Life with you has been a roller coaster ride. There are a lot of ups and downs. It has been an exciting, surreal, and wonderful ride with you but unlike any other ride whether we like it or not all rides have to come to its end, (because you can’t ride to a roller coaster all your life cause it will only make you sick.) And sadly, ours has come to an end.

It’s funny how I always force you to tell me the truth and when you finally spit it out, it breaks me. The truth hurts, indeed but in one way or another, I feel a kind of relief. I could finally set myself free from the betrayal, lies, and dramas that you have caused me.

You are right, I like running into troubles. You are absolutely right, that’s because I am only protecting what I thought is mine and I am not afraid to speak up my mind.  I’m sorry for being not good enough, for being not suitable to you like what you are always telling when I am being a nagger and when I always caught you off guard. I’m sorry for expecting too much from you, maybe I really did get my hopes too high and I depended my happiness on you cause I thought you are the man whom I could depend on and the man that I’ve been praying for but I was totally wrong.

As they say, trust is the most important thing in a relationship. A relationship without trust is like a car without gasoline, it would go nowhere. I hate to admit this, but I lost it a long time ago. I’m sorry if I lied. Sometimes, I ask myself. “Why would you do that?” “Why did you do such things” then part of me will answer “Maybe you really don’t want him in your life, because if you want to keep him, you wouldn’t do that in the first place. You know that he wouldn’t like it and he warned you many times. How could you do that? You said, you love him and you want to be with him for always. Aren’t you secured? Don’t you trust him?” And I couldn’t hide the crucial truth that YES, I DON’T TRUST YOU.  NOT ANYMORE. Part of me will say “Yes that’s it,  you don’t trust him anymore. He lied to you many times. Why are you still keeping him? Why are you still chasing him? You can’t be with someone who destroyed your trust. Have you noticed how you are acting lately? How agitated you are when he’s not calling. Every time, you’re thinking that maybe he’s with another girl. You couldn’t eat properly, you couldn’t sleep well at night.  You are getting sick. How about those things? Ask yourself, is he still good for you? Is it still healthy for you? Do yourself a favor. Cut him off. And move on.” Then I will just whisper to myself, “no matter how hard it is, no matter how our relationship would have gone wrong, giving up would never be an option. He lied because he has reasons, I don’t want to think that he broke my trust, maybe I’ve never really given my whole trust. Or it might be broken, I believe in the right time it would be whole again, no matter how long it takes. Because I love him. I love him so much. And you don’t give up on people that you love.”

A part of me will always want, need, and love you for always. I wouldn’t bother you anymore. This would be the last. I love you so much and it hurts. I honestly don’t know how to go on without you, you’d been my world since the day that I met you. Maybe God has a better plan for the both of us. And sadly, that means to be apart. not for a while. but forever.

I am leaving, and this time it is for real. Maybe you have issues with yourself and with your past. Same as you don’t want me- I don’t want to be with someone who always question himself if I am the right one or not. I don’t want to be with someone who has issues with himself. I don’t want to be with someone who is emotionally unstable and is complicated. I don’t need someone who doesn’t listen who doesn’t pay attention on the things that are bothering me. I’ve come to the point that I have nothing left to give. I am leaving because I am saving what is left from us. Thank you for everything. Thank you for awakening every bits of me. Thank you for showing me what love game is, thank you for showing me what are things that I shouldn’t look for a man. And most importantly, thank you for giving me a chance to find someone whom I truly deserve, someone who knows my worth and won’t take me for granted.I still believe that you are a wonderful person. And, I am still grateful to God for bringing you into my life. Maybe, I am really not good enough for you. I know that you are okay with or without me. Way to go! I’m giving up on you. I am wishing you well and I hope she’s really worth it.

The ride is over. You’ve already left. And I also have to. Thank you for being with me during the whole ride.

Forgiveness After The Storm

Forgiveness After The Storm

The muse of poetry in its depths stalls the ensue of thee,Drowning in the sparse spectacle of hope left, one dives into the waters of misery.Triabilsing in the painful stance of existence, death in its allure creeps behind,To be or not be in the bane of tormenting breaths, in their truth one seems to find,

The hostility that binds, convulsion in its gloating flair laughs hysterically at the corpse of being,Dreariness to live in its slow burn writhes the only ounce of light left to see.The void of embracing the freshness of unadulterated air forges to question the beauty,Of living a life that could lead in the lightness of radiance and the smiles of unbridled glee.

The trueness of being lapses in the oscillation of turbulence and the sea of calm,Yet the tides of uncertain syllables that breed animosity render the sou

Beyond Materialism

Most people can understand the happiness that comes from purchasing something for oneself when we talk about needing some retail therapy. Can shopping truly improve our mood?

The Aesthetic Epidemic: Understanding the Roots of Lookism

The Aesthetic Epidemic

We care about more than just ourselves – we care about our loved ones, our communities, and the world around us. We are affected by tragic events, especially when a child is murdered, regardless of where it happens. It deeply impacts us and makes us feel disheartened. Moral evils raise doubts about the goodness of the world and the value of existence, especially for those who believe in a benevolent deity. However, anyone can contemplate the purpose and value of the universe in light of such evils. We may not need to worry about the value of the Universe and instead focus on finding value in our own lives or the lives of our loved ones. The concept of value is subjective and can be created by us.

The important question is what we should value or find pleasure in. Some people may try to ignore moral evil by focusing only on their own lives and loved ones, but this narrow perspective is unsatisfying for most. I

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

To be or not to be, to go all in or to unwind and relax, we question our dreams, running in constant chase of our quests to come true, we are the ones who never sleep. Dreamers we are called, the ones who passionately strive in the endeavours of the best they could ever be, here is a letter to me, a letter to you. In the stride of embracing the best you have ever been, nurture your soul before the onset of the abundance in you that lies unseen.

Too bold, too much for your age, you are doing too much, how often have you heard these notions been used to describe you? As we tirelessly strive to achieve the next goal we have in our mind, we are often told that we are being hard on ourselves, to enjoy life a little. Life in its entirety passes by us in its dynamic flair, and the existence we envisage holds unique individuality to each one of us. The choices one makes for themselves belies them and them only, and t

How To Remain Centered And Calm In Face Of Difficulty

The Roller Coaster Ride

My life is a mess and I have nothing to be grateful about! I witness myself say this phrase from time to time, where life plonks us into the desperation of ebb and flow of wilderness and things not going in our favour.

It is easy to say we are grateful and in complete balance when things are going well and life feels like the warm embrace of the sun shining on a Sunday morning. But the real test lies in remaining grateful and centred when life feels like spinning out of control.

While it is easier said than done, here are some reminders that might help you get through the days that feel like a burden –

1) This too shall pass, no moment in time that feels permanent loses its impermanence. We often lose hope when things don’t go our way and during these sad days, we should remember, that t

15 Most Liberating Thoughts For Someone Who Needs It

The Roller Coaster Ride

Our life unfolds in a succession of revelations of who we are. It is when we sit down and repeat the same sentence in our head over and over again, in every action we perform, every activity we indulge ourselves in, does it indulges into our existence as a habit.

The key to having a sense of liberation is allowing life to flow through, not forcing anything and more essentially not resisting change. I believe that our life improves in the direct proportionality of how often we are exposed to situations where are forced to challenge our age-old beliefs and counterfeited perceptions and seek the greater version of ourselves. When we get too comfortable in the comfort zones we build for ourselves, we do not grow into the people we are meant to be. Sadly most people embrace change only when metamorphosis is the less painful and only possible option.

I know that
