We have been associates for some time and I really feel like we have identified one another without end.
We have seen one another by way of the whole lot. Once you have been unhappy or bothered, you got here to me. My tales to maintain your thoughts off issues and there was nothing that us and popcorn could not remedy. I cherished it extra although while you celebrated with me — your wins, your birthdays, even Christmas. I spent it with you and your family and friends. Whether or not it was to giggle, or cry, even scream generally, we did it collectively.
I miss all of that.
Recently, I believe we have been rising aside. There was in fact the pandemic so I needed to shut my doorways to you to maintain us secure. And I used to be so excited for the day to return that you simply’d be capable to see me once more. However now it is lastly allowed, you do not appear wanting to meet up with me. I’ve heard you say “Nakakasawa na ang mga kuwento kasi paulit-ulit” so that you’d relatively keep dwelling and go browsing than come and see me. You say now that you simply desire higher associates than me. I’ve to confess — that hurts.
However relatively than wallow and sulk and consider the outdated days, I need you to know that I’ve thought lengthy and exhausting about what occurred between us. I’ve come to understand and perceive the place you are coming from. Perhaps it’s my fault. I’ve turn out to be complacent and too assured that you simply’d at all times stick to me. I’ve relied an excessive amount of on what labored with you and I used to be reluctant to take dangers. Generally I even minimize corners. And also you did not deserve that. Perhaps that is why you bought bored with the outdated methods. I get that now and I am prepared to work on that as a result of I do not wish to lose what we have each labored exhausting for.
I really like that you’ve met new associates, and located new methods to understand extra tales. It is nice that there at the moment are extra of us who might be there for you. However I hope to nonetheless be a part of your expertise.
I’m prepared to vary, and I’m prepared to vary with you. I acknowledge the significance of adapting to the instances, and we will solely go ahead from right here.
I do know that rising can generally be painful, and more often than not, transformations usually are not really easy. You and I are now not the identical as we have been ten years in the past — even two years in the past. It takes dedication to make issues work. Whereas we’re transitioning to a different part of our lives, please do not quit on me. I swear that I’m not giving up on you, too.
Maybe it’s at the moment a tad bit difficult however let’s put within the time to know one another — us, our altering selves. Let’s give one another the possibility to be higher. Let’s preserve speaking. Let’s by no means cease speaking.
Usap tayo minsan. Miss na kita.
