Your blinded by the momentary happiness. The way he makes you feel when you’re at the highest of highs is that much worse when he makes you feel the lowest of lows. It’s a constant up and down, but the peak of the up is worth it.

You feel like you’re drifting into the unknown because everyday is different and it scares you, but not enough to leave. So you let him leave first, and not willingly, but reluctantly. You feel him leave and you feel a part of yourself leave with him. So you’re left alone with what remains.

And you stay right where he left you, and you think. You think a lot and you think hard. First, you think about the future that he mentioned. Then you think about how it will never happen. And then you start to think about the good times…

How To Know When You’re NOT In Love

Thought Catalog

They say “you know when you know” but I don’t think that’s entirely true. Sometimes, you want so badly to be in love that for the time being you think you are. You can confuse lust with love and love with lust in a relationship. You also could be trying to replicate a past love, trying to remember how it felt to be so desperately in love that it hurt. Maybe you’re trying to feel the way you did back then, but you just can’t force feelings. The present moment is nowhere near your past love and you keep trying to reach that ecstasy and intoxicating level of love. But it doesn’t come. When your relationship inevitably ends, you aren’t heartbroken. And that’s when you know you weren’t in love.

Looking back on it, you knew you weren’t in love when it was midnight and you never played back the…

5 Reasons To Leave Him If You Know He’s Not The One

Thought Catalog

Why do we stay somewhere we don’t belong? Why do we continue to put ourselves in a situation or be with somebody that we know isn’t right for us?

It’s almost engraved in our human nature to stay with the comfortable. To stay with the known, and feel the feelings of the familiar rather then leave when we know somebody has stayed far too long in our lives.

Growing up, almost every girl has the ultimate fantasy of being with the man of her dreams. A man that is willing to fight for her, not against her. Not only a man of integrity and honor, but also a man who only has a heart and set of eyes for her. The problem with the ultimate fantasy is that we tend to settle for way less than we deserve and stay somewhere we don’t belong. But what we fail to realize…

When You’re Sick Of Hearing, ‘You Deserve Better’

Thought Catalog

“You deserve better,” said the boy who just hurt you. If he believes that to be true, you wonder why he couldn’t be that person. If he means what he says, and you deserve everything he is not, someone who is honest, someone who won’t take your love for granted, someone who loves you the same amount in return and never uses it against you, then why haven’t you found it yet?

“You deserve better,” said the consoling friend. She means well, and tells you it’s the truth, but you’ve heard it before. You nod your head in agreement, partly believing what she says, but it doesn’t change the reality of your situation.

“You deserve better,” said the family member who you know has your best interest at heart. You wonder what “better” is, and how to find it.

“You deserve better,” said everyone who has…

Read This If Nobody Texted You Good Morning

Thought Catalog

Alexandra E RustAlexandra E Rust

First of all: Good morning, beautiful.

Is it too late to say that? I know you’ve probably been awake a while – likely hours or even all day. I know you may have gone this whole time without hearing it – shrugging back to friends and family who asked you how you’re doing with a non-committal “Fine” because that is what we’re meant to do as humans – answer meaningful questions with arbitrary phrases. I know that you may not be fine. I know you may have had a lacklustre day. And I know that something as incredibly mundane as a “Good morning” text may have made all the difference in the world. It’s okay if that’s the case. It’s okay to sometimes ache for those simple and kind-hearted gestures.

Because the truth is that good morning texts are more than a half-hearted means of communication. They…

Sand Bar, Bulubadiangan, Concepcion, Iloilo, Philippines

A day off after months of monotonous work.

Summer end is fast approaching and I don’t even have a beach summer story yet. The famous Isla de Gigantes is already packed with tourist and besides I have already gone to it last year. I want another beach to chill on to. So, my “beach buddies” and I decided to go somewhere who is not yet discovered by most people.

The island is just a few minutes ride from the local town. The cottage is also cheap, we have rented a 500-peso worth cottage which can accommodate more than ten people. The entrance fee is 25 pesos for the adult and 15 pesos for the kids. There are also cheaper cottages available, it just so happen that there are people who arrived earlier than us.

The island is just a small island which you can swim in either direction. If high tide, the water is just 8-meters away from our cottage and a portion of the sandbar is also visible where you can walk meters away and feel the heat of the sun in your face and feel the waves on your feet. But, if it’s low tide you can walk a hundred meters far of sandbar which it can almost reach another island. It is a nice place for some people who have deeper thoughts. The waves and the sands synchronize with your emotion.

The water is clear as what you want it to be.

Serene. Peaceful. Clean. Picturesque.
