Twenty Ninth of June

I know that we JUST parted two days ago and we’re going to be together again in a few days but I really do miss you so badly already

I miss the way you ALWAYS know what I wanted and needed, even when I told you I don’t which is really sweet and thoughtful

I miss the way you MAKE me feel special every single moment that we’re together, we may not celebrate our day today in each other’s arms I think those memories are enough to help me get by

I swear I will never let anybody or anything ruin us, IT will never be something we’re gonna be worried about

I may not be able to turn back time to make everything perfect but RIGHT now I don’t really need a perfect situation only the perfect person to spend every imperfect situation we may face.

Happy Monthsary Mahal ko.. See you soon.. Miss you much.. Thank you for making my vacation extra special.. Next year ulit.. Iingat ka po Mahal ko.. Lalo na sa monster na nkadrawing sa katawan mo.. hahaha.. I love you sooo much.. 

Happy Father’s Day

To the guy who is not JUST the best boyfriend but the best father I know.

The man who ALWAYS put the needs of his sons first before his own.

The father who doesn’t let anything MAKE you stop sacrificing everything for the sake of those he love the most

And I know IT is one of those things that makes me love you even more and more each day

Today is your day and it is just RIGHT to give you the recognition that you truly deserve.

Mahal ko Happy Happy Father’s Day.. I won’t let this pass without showing the world how wonderful and responsible father you are. You proved to everybody that being responsible doesn’t come with age but with the perseverance and sincere love to your kids.  I’m really proud of you Mahal and grateful that I get to spend my everyday with someone as awesome as you forever. I love you so much… 😘😘😘😘😘

Being away from you is something I JUST don’t want to feel anymore

ALWAYS thinking about what you’re doing and worrying about your safety are things I really can’t endure

Not being with you or not hearing anything from you before I fall asleep MAKE me crazier than ever

IT is not something I wound want to go through again from the day we go return to our lives together

Because RIGHT now what I feel is so unbearable and going back to it the second time is something I would never get over.

I’LL MISS YOU!!!

I JUST want to let you know that I will miss you

That I will ALWAYS think of all the moments I spent with you

I guess there will be memories that will MAKE me miss you even more and feel sad

But you know that IT is something that you shouldn’t feel bad

Because no matter how hard it is, I will always be RIGHT here waiting for you to come back

 

 

 Please do take care of yourself always..

This book has really touched me in a way that Hopeless did. Well, I’m always like this whenever I read books. I always love to empathize with the protagonist. But this time, I think I actually feel what Lily felt.

“There is no such thing as bad people. We’re all just people who sometimes do bad things.”

The moment this book was released I’ve always wanted to read it because I love Colleen’s work especially Hopeless Series but then I became so busy and was able to read it just a few days back.

I’m very confused while reading this book. At one point in the book a hated Colleen for making Ryle like that. I’ve already pictured him as the Mr. Perfect guy who would heal all the wounds of Lily’s past. Then that first incident came and I was so devastated. I began to believe what most abused women would feel that maybe that won’t ever happen again. That Colleen won’t allow that to happen, that in the end he will change and there will be happily ever after for them. Well, I was sooooo wrong.

When I read the “Author’s Note” in the end, it suddenly dawned on me that there are really a lot of domestic violence happening in the world right now. I started reading this without even knowing that this will be the plot of the story, I should have read this sooner. Sorry for the spoilers.. I really can’t help it.

“Just because someone hurts you doesn’t mean you can simply stop loving them. It’s not a person’s actions that hurt the most. It’s the love. If there was no love attached to the action, the pain would be a little easier to bear.”

I want to apologize for this part of the review, I can’t help sharing my own Naked Truth.

A few years ago, well seven years ago, I was in the same situation, well, not to that extent, but I was abused physically and verbally while I was pregnant with my youngest daughter. I know if only I have shared this experience with my family sooner they would have told me to leave him the first time he ever laid his hands on me but I decided to kept everything to myself because of love and hope. Hope, that maybe one day he will change. Love, for him and for my daughter, because I want her to have a normal family unlike her elder sisters.

Women who love an abuser will always have their own excuses not leaving the person who’s hurting them and every time that happens the abuser will have their own excuse to hurt them and the cycle won’t end. I wish, I and all other women who were abused by the man they love, were as bold and strong as Lily. Not all men are like Ryle, who had gone through the toughest time while he was young, some are merely drunkards, abusers who have nothing better to do in their lives but hurt the woman they said they love. Well, if you’re wondering what happened to us. I left him but not because he abused me before but when I became an OFW, I realized so many things that I wasn’t able to see when I was with him and then slowly my feelings for him faded because I realized I deserve better but the memory of what he did to me will always have a scar in my heart.

“Don’t be like me, Lily. I know that you believe he loves you, and I’m sure he does. But he’s not loving you the right way. He doesn’t love you the way you deserve to be loved. If Ryle truly loves you, he wouldn’t allow you to take him back. He would make the decision to leave you himself so that he knows for a fact he can never hurt you again. That’s the kind of love a woman deserves, Lily”

I would say exactly the same thing to my daughters someday if ever they will be in this kind of situation but I always pray that they will not. I don’t know what I’m capable of doing for the sake of my daughters.

“It’s easy when we’re on the outside to believe that we would walk away without a second thought if  person mistreated us. It’s easy to say we couldn’t continue to love someone who mistreats us when we aren’t the ones feeling the love of that person.”

Lily is an epitome of the modern time hero. Many women would learn a lot from this book. That leaving while you still can would be better than once you’ve been submerged too deep that you won’t even have the strength to walk away.

“Even though there was a slight possibility that Ryle could have eventually changed for the better, some risks are never worth taking. Especially when those risks have failed you in the past.”

This book is a highly recommended one specially for WOMEN not just for those like us who had experienced this the hard way but also for the awareness of others and to stop judging your fellow women who were not as brave and bold.
