Day 5: Things to say to your Ex

(Day 5 of the 30 Day Writing Challenge)

Today’s writing prompt is too much. (Ang bigat ng hinihingi! Close ba tayo? Haha)

I find it quite hard to write about something (I deemed) as sensitive as this. But I’m one of those who want to maintain a streak and to continue and finish something I started without any skip, omission, or absence.

So, here are my ten initial thoughts about him (whoever he is for me and whoever you think he is):


1. I’m wishing all the best for you.

2. …

3. You deserve to be happy.

4. Thank you for everything that was.

5. I learned a lot.

6. You made me a better person.

7. You made me appreciate myself more.

8. I know you’re a good person.

9. You’re forgiven.

10. Let’s live the best life we can have.

You might be curious why I don’t have bitter feelings. Not that I didn’t acknowledge the pain.

But I acknowledge the pain too much, I was able to pull something great from it.
I bet the saying “Time heals all wounds” was right. Time makes us move farther and there from a distance we can have a new view of what had happened. The chaos we thought it was, when seen from far away, can also be beautiful in it’s own way.

A beautiful disaster.

We can never be hurt by the things we had accepted already. And I believe, everything happens for a reason. Haha. No. That’s clichΓ©. My version is: Everything happens because that’s how it should be. 

Heartbreaks are heartbreaking. But once you reached that point when your heart is mending, that’s when you know you’re changed. You’re now a stronger version of yourself! 

So better keep moving… 

keep moving on…

keep moving forward.

Basta, move! πŸ’–
