In this ever so superficial world, it's so hard to tell who's sincere and who's not. You wonder if that person is actually there for keeps or just for a brief fling.
Ironically enough, our brain decides whether to trust someone in milliseconds, sometimes it's people we're only subliminally aware of.
At the beginning, it's almost impossible to predict the outcomes of a relationship. It's not what we want to here, but the unexpected/undesired does happen,and more than often:
"She betrayed me"
" He broke my heart"
" She lied"
" He's changed..."
So what now. It didn't feel good did it?
" There's this really hot guy in tennis.".
That's exactly how it all started. The whole drama situation. Well, nobody would have known the ending then.
It's not everyday my friend walks into the school with such a bold statement hanging off her lips. So we all took this pretty seriously. I've never met this guy, and only know his face by the zooming in onto the group photos posted of Facebook.
So things grew from there, and I swear their relationship progressed fast as hell. Talking to each other by the third day and texting by the second week. It was cute, it really was.
He doesn't have a phone, but he would stay online of FB to talk to her for hours. And so, as predicted, it didn't take long for the mutual ' I like you ' messages to come into the picture. They chatted about committing to each other, he said he wanted to, but only after the summer break.
This was probably the worst time, because both of them went overseas for summer vacation and didn't see each other for 2 months. From what I know, they definitely kept in contact, but things changed after a couple of weeks. He wasn't responding too well to her messages.
One day out of the blue came a text from him saying this
' I met someone during summer, things got a little out of hand, we danced and I ended up kissing her'
Man.. something that just seemed so perfect crashed down with just a click of his fingers. Wow. Just wow.
Maybe their relationship was ever so shallow. Or maybe everything happened too fast and their love for each other did not extend beyond their physical attributes. I can't be too sure. But for what I know, the short period of time they had with each other was real, and they were happy, genuinely happy.
We can't always hope for the best in other people , but we can always hope for the best in ourselves.
Fine, other people can be a let down, we can't stop that from happening. But you cannot be a let down towards yourself. Don't.
I'm afraid of falling into the trap of having my trust broken, I never want to let it happen to me. But when the time comes, I want to be strong, I want to pull through it and never look back. Just like what my friend did. She was cool, she really was. He wanted her back at one point, and she said no. Not that she didn't want to forgive him, but because he did not repent.
So... this post is dedicated to my friend ;) to think she had such guts to ask for a blog post about herself.
Written with love,
