Walang makapaghihiwalay sa atin sa pag-ibig ni Cristo, kahit dumanas pa tayo ng mga pagsubok, paghihirap, pag-uusig, gutom, kawalan, panganib, o maging kamatayan.

An Open Letter to That Christian Lady I Secretly Adore


I am not really used to this kind of thing.

I am not the kind of man who just watches a lady worth knowing from afar. I am always making my intentions clear, always trying to make my purpose as pure and unadulterated as possible. But right now, I can’t. It’s not that I am afraid of rejection. It’s just… I don’t want to startle you. I don’t want you to think that I am trying to get close just because you’re pretty.

Whenever I hear people give that advice, I always wonder what they mean with “love yourself?”

Don’t get me wrong, I believe we should, at some degree, love ourselves. We should eat right, spend time with ourselves, take good care of our outward appearance, exercise, strive to reach our aspirations and etc. But I think most people use this advice to the extreme that it actually hurts them and their relationships. People most of the time, just think of themselves alone that it kills the intimacy in their relationships. Some people thinks of loving themselves too much that they shut other people out, thinking that they will only be hurt if they let other people in.

Hindi naman talaga kita nakalimutan. Maari bang tuluyang mawala ang lahat ng meron tayo? Maari bang makalimutan kung paano natin napatunayan sa mundo na hindi lahat ng bago, masama? Maari bang hindi na ituloy ang kaisa-isang bagay na tumutulak sakin magpatuloy? Maari bang makalimot ang puso? Babalik ka rin. Alam ko, babalik ka rin. Alam ko na magkakaroon ulit ng […]
