An Open Letter

It's just funny how young adults choose to be immature. But when you think of all the things they do that greatly affect others in a negative way, it just pisses me off. C'mon. Act your age. It's never wrong to feel young whatever our age may be. But the point is, before reacting impulsively to somebody's decision/action, think first about the reason behind every problem or situation a person is, and try to understand it in a different perspective. It's not like asking for forgiveness even though you know it is not mainly your fault. It's just opening your mind to possibilities. Because hey. Life will not always give it all to you. Sometimes, life is not all about trusting your own feelings, but it's trusting other people. Yes, it is already given that there is a tendency for people to abuse or break it. But let us keep in mind that there will always be people who are willing to regain the trust that has been lost. Let us not close our doors and windows to probabilities.

What I am trying to say is, for every problem or situation, try putting yourself in another person's shoes in order to understand them. By knowing what it feels like to be "that person", we will be able to relate to them. Because if you continue looking at others just in your shoes, you'll never know and understand other people's stand and reasons in every situation. You're being selfish if you keep on pointing other people's faults but not admitting that you too, made a mistake. It is normal to commit mistakes because we are only human. But it is never a valid reason to keep on doing the same mistake over and over again and learn nothing from it. Life is about committing mistakes and learning from it. Stumbling then falling, but standing up and moving on. Moving on includes learning from the past and not allowing the same mistake to occur in the future.

If you truly value and love a person, you will trust him/her no matter what. Even though what you can see and hear hurts you; Even though distance and time separate other. True love is unconditional. According to the bible verse 1 Corinthians 13:1- 13 which love was defined,
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails."

Love is never about being self-centered and selfish to other people--the ones whom you love. Love is supporting that person whatever it is that makes him or her happy, not because you have to, but because, just by seeing him/her happy, makes you happy too.

I hope this message finds a way to your heart to wake you up and see life in a whole new way--a more matured and more-your-age approach. I know, a lot of things have already happened. It has all been said and done and nobody can change whatever it is that has happened. But it is never too late to fill up the next days with genuine happiness. Because life is short, and we should always cherish it, most especially with the ones we value the most. I hope you know that I will always want you to become a part of my life, and I hope I am to you too, since we're not others to each other anymore.

I wish you the best, and I will always be here for you, if you'll need me, like it is before.
