How to Handle Your Ex : Letting go?

semi-overcast

So, it's been quite awhile or maybe only a short amount of time since you thought this person could be 'the one' for you, but in any case it's ended and caused you enough heartache to look to websites for help. Assuming she ended it with you, the first step is to realize things have changed and that means his feelings towards you have changed. There is no longer a need to wonder what you can do to 'convince' her to love you again. There is no need to call her and no need to continue to be her friend unless you feel you can do that without dying a little inside each time. You're probably right in assuming she will miss you. She won't miss you until you move on though because until then you continue to be an option for her. Sex will not make her love you. Do not offer a commitment free sex relationship in order to keep her in your life. No one is worth that.

Why do you like this girl so much? Have you ever felt this about someone before, honestly? Do you feel that without her you are alone? Do you feel that no one else will find you attractive? Why are you afraid to let go?

These are a few questions to spend some time on.

You are worth something. You deserve someone who loves you unconditionally. You could have someone who doesn't play silly games with your heart and someone who would die before even thinking about letting you go. Sometimes the worst of events are blessings in disguise.

And take comfort in the fact that everyone at one point or another has felt exactly what you are feeling. It doesn't last forever ...

10 TIPS TO FINALLY LET GO

Getting over relationships are never easy. You always have that friend that thinks it should be a piece of cake. I'm that friend. I hate to see people dwell over something that ended for a reason, whether right or wrong. The fact of the matter is that it is over, but that doesn't mean that your life is.

Here are some ways to help get over your failed (sorry, but it's true) relationships.

  • 1. Stop analyzing it. Hindsight is a bitch. Yes, if you had known, if they would have said, if you would have done... The what if's and maybe's are all good and nice if you want to sit there in the dark, eating your feelings, and sobbing to the music of James Blunt.
  • 2. Soul mates are in black and white movies. Romanticism is beautiful. Whirlwind movie affair relationships are exactly that. These days it's getting hard to spin relationships and make them like that of Romeo and Juliet. Think about it, with this internet revolution of dating, the term soul mate has lost a lot of it's umph. Is it dreamy to tell your story of love when you became obsessed with a private profile's picture, so much so that you added them as a friend to find out more? It's not. A lot of venues have lost their romantic statuses, war (gotta love the women left behind, check out the divorce rate in the military), trains (long distance relationships, endearing, but unrealistic all the same), let's face it, we always meet our soul mates, and trust me, there are more when you part.
  • 3. Putting up with other peoples relationship successes. Sure you come across those few that like to elaborate a little bit on the dramatics of their seemingly romantic relationship, and to keep your sanity I will provide you some options. Number one, poke holes in the parts they try to skip over. Even if there's nothing to hide, it will slow the story down and make it less romantic, I promise. Two, notice how happy the person is, then question it. Is the happiness blinding? Is the person they're with really as awesome as they're painting them out to be, everyone has flaws, don't seek them out, just observe. And three, my most favorite, you know that glossy eyed look you get when something is just really uninteresting? Do that. Maybe even start to fiddle with anything that happens to be around you. Check your text message on your phone while pretending to still be interested. Besides, your relationship just failed, they should be more sensitive.
  • 4. Get rid of the evidence. Pictures of you and them, things they gave you, places you went to together, it's in the past now. Reminding yourself of it all the time will bring you nothing but tears and annoyance. Depending on the severity of the break up, I would get rid of it all. The less time you spend focusing on what you no longer have, the more time you have to go and create new memories. Unless it's something cool like a really great coffee mug. Then I'm sure you can look past its significance and thank them for leaving you with something you can use.
  • 5. Stop staring at your phone. Staring at your phone will not make the person call you, besides you shouldn't want them to call. I know it's hard, but it would be better to just delete them, and maybe even turn your phone off throughout the day. Jedi mind tricks don't work with electronics.
  • 6. Maintain no contact. The relationship is over, calling them with made up questions, or questions with no real importance should stop. Being needy and lingering is not cute. Take the power you've given them away and keep it for yourself, by not contacting you are showing, not only them but yourself that you mean business.
  • 7. You are sooo amazing. Keep positive. Sure, you're alone, and really, is that so bad? Take the time to rediscover things that make you happy, don't believe that your happiness was that person, it wasn't. Maybe at one time that person aided in maintaining some kind of happiness in your life, but the happiness you felt was from reciprocated appreciation and love. Now, you just need to love yourself. It's completely cliché but when you understand loving yourself the world becomes a little bit brighter.
  • 8. Regrets. Have none. It won't change the past, don't let it dictate your future.
  • 9. The future. It's full of possibilities, new people, new places, new things, take it all in. All the world's a play and you are the star, work it with enthusiasm, love with the fierceness of the fires in hell, and always know that there is always the possibility of another heart break. Fear is for the weak, love is for the brave, and never trying leads to a very dull biography.
  • 10. Friends. They told you so, but if they're good, they hate that they were right and if they're great they'll let you screw up again. Keep them close to your heart, because good friends know how to make you smile and stop you from crying. Great friends tell you why who you dated sucked, and when exactly you should have broken up with them. And if you're really lucky, they may even love you enough to go behind your back and post your ex's picture on a website warning the world about who they should avoid dating in the future.

So, the next time you see yourself going to that dark place, staying wrapped up in your comforter, and swearing off anything that would make you move from your bed. Open the curtains, let your eyes get use to the light and take yourself outside. People around the world are dying and your wasting time not living over someone that lost out on something amazing anyways...kind of dramatic, but I'm sure you see my point.

This was sang by Apo Hiking Society.

pinalitan ko lang ng ibang words yung nasa lyrics just to tell the story of our batch.

kung alam mo yung song pwede mong kantahin habang binabasa mo sya..

Saan na ang barkada ngayon
By APO Hiking Society
Edit by Peejong

Intro:

Nagsimula ang lahat sa Expedia. Nagtraining sobra’ labingdalawa.
Sa kalokohan at sa tuksuhan, may nag okrayan at nag mamaganda.
Madalas ang tambay sa smoking area. Sa bumibida’y tuwang tuwa.
Laging may hawak-hawak sya sa bulsa, may choco mix bang ititimpla

Kay simple lamang ng training nun,
minsan tulog, net surfing while on training
problema lamang kulang break nun
pero carry pa rin ang chibog

Chorus :

Sa expedia,sa expedia !
Sa expedia ang training namin nun
Sa expedia,sa expedia !
Sa expedia ang training namin nun

2nd Verse

Sa unang araw kami'y magkasama
Magkasabwat sa pangchu-churva
ang yong sekreto'y hindi matatago
lahat chismoso sa batch na ito

Nagkawatakan din kalaunan
Kanya-kanya na ang pag-resign
Kahit minsanan na lang kung magkita
Pagkakaibiga'y hindi nawala

At kung saan man napadpad ang ilan
Sa dating batch meron pa ding naiwan
Meron pangang nagtransfer ng ibang account
nakakamiss ang Batch E-151.

Chorus :

Kakaloka, kakaloka!
Kakaloka,kakaloka ang training nun!
Kakaloka, kakaloka!
Kakaloka ang Queueng sa floor.

3rd Verse

Almost 1 year din ang nakalipas
ang iba sa amin, nanay na
Nagsusumikap upang yumaman
At guminhawang kinabukasan

Paminsan-minsan kami'y nagkikita
every Sunday may family day
At gaya nung araw namin sa expedia
Pagmagkakasama ay nagwawala

Napakahirap malimutan
Ang saya ng aming samahan
Kahit lumipas man ang ilang taon
sana magkakabarkada pa rin ngayon

Chorus :

Magkaibigan, mga kaibigan
sa Expedia kami nabuo
Magkaibigan, magkaibigan
sa Expedia kami nabuo.

End*

  • I miss you guys! Batch E-151!

Palico, Batangas

overcast

First time lang nagyari sa akin ito...

Matapos ang stressful na training namin last saturday.. nagpunta kami sa Sucat in Parañaque sa bahay ng co-trainee namin to unwind and relax.

so we travel.. mga banggag sa antok, namumutla sa puyat at kumukulo yung tyan sa gutom.

After an a hour of long traffic and heavy sunlight nakarating din kami sa bahay nila.. haay! sa wakas and upon arriving, nagplano na kaagad kami kung ano yung kakainin at iinumin pero syempre tabla-tabla muna habang kumakain ( naka apat na hotdog yata ako. hehehe)

pero alalay lang naman ang inom namin.. kaya hanggang dalawang

the-bar-orange-vodka.jpg

and a bottle of

redhorse.jpg
lang ang aming napatumba kasabay ang magulong tagayan at malupet na kantahan.

And for valid reason hindi kami pwede magpakalasing kasi uuwi ako ng Batangas and malayo din yung uuwian ng iba naming kasama. Past 3pm na rin yata kami natapos nun.

We wrap up everything. prepared ourselves to go home at kelangan ko na din kasi magmadali papuntang EDSA kasi 6pm yung last trip ng bus papuntang Balayan.

I almost missed the last trip kasi traffic sa Baclaran at pagdating ko sa terminal palabas na ng gate yung bus. kaya nagdali-dali akong tumakbo habang naka-stop.

And as usual ano pa ba ang aabutan mo sa last trip kasabay ang rush hour? e di full pack! no seats available! bad trip dba??

Akalain mong nakatayo ako from the terminal hanggang Bacoor. Pagod at puyat ka na, sabayan pa ng pagkalasing.. Good luck naman sa tuhod ko... kaya nung pagbaba ng lalaki sa area na yun nagdali-dali akong kuhanin ang pwesto.
" Hello!! 3 hours kaya ang byahe pauwi, ano ako sira bibigay yung seat ng basta basta! "

So after i grab the seat... boom! knock out si PeeJong.. zzzz.. zzzz..zzzz... zzzz...zzzz...
sa Tagaytay na ako na gising.. heheheh

And here is quite scary but funny thing na nangyari sa byahe..

Paglampas namin ng tagaytay along sa boundary ng Nasugbu ang Tuy. Tumirik yung Bus!! pucha naman oh!

Sa gitna pa ng madilim na lugar na halos isang kilometro ang pagitan ng mga poste ng ilaw at bibilangin mo lang ang bahay sa paligid na tanging kuliglig lang ang maririnig mong nagiingay...

Lima na lang kaming nasa loob ng bus.. Ako, kasama ang dalawang scavenger, driver at and kundoktor. syempre, kung ano-ano na yung mga pumapasok sa isip ko, kesho may bigla na lang lilitaw na halimaw sa bintana o kaya naman may matandang lalapit sa amin na walang mukha o kaya kahit anong panget na nilalang ang mananakot sa dis-oras ng gabi.

pero naiba yung atensyon ko.. imbis na matakot o magalit eh binatayan ko na lang yung oras kung hanggang anong oras kami makaka-uwi. and here are some of the info that i've got:

  • Nagmamay-ari : " Erjohn and Almark "
  • Rason ng paghinto : Naubusan ng Diesel
  • Bus # at modelo : 89035-Higen
  • Lugar ng pinaghintuan : Palico, Batangas

Mga oras ng paghinto :

  • 9:18pm - 9:41pm (tumawag ang kundokter para sa wrecker) Bumaba kami sa bus,pumunta ang driver likod at binomba yung lagayan ng diesel. tapos takbo ulit.
  • 9:43pm hinto na naman hanggang 9:41pm (bomba ulit si mamang driver)tapos takbo ulit pero

mahaba na yung tinakbo at may biglang umepal yung isang scavenger. sabi " Boss para! " epal diba? hirap na nga magpatakbo sabay papara.. hehehe!

  • 9:52pm takbo ulit pero hindi na nagbomba si kuya. hehehe pagod na..
  • 9:57 dumaan yung isa nilang Bus at pinalipat kami dun (sayang hindi ko na nakuha yung bus number. antok na ko eh)
  • 10:30pm ng nakarating ako ng bahay... at kinabukasan kinilabutan ako matapos kong ikwento yung nangyari ng gabi yun kasi yung lugar pala kung saan kami nasiraan ay maraming nagpapakitang white lady dun at mga naglalarong maligno.

at dahil dun! Hindi na ko uulit na uuwi ng ganung oras.. Promise!!
