How do you tell a friend that the person she longs for is full of bullshit? Quite a challenge, yeah?
Story starts when I had the time to talk to a good friend recently, whom I haven't been in touch with for a long time. Expectedly, we had an awesome time catching up, anecdotes from present in-ring romances to our friends getting impregnated one by one. But this certain topic that dominated our chatter was regarding her situation with her boyfriend slash ex-boyfriend of which I firmly condemn. I know, not my business, but as the intrusive friend that I am, I felt I needed to enlighten her of what could be the internal wreckage that currently centers their relationship.
Before I go any further, I don't infringe the confidentiality within the people involved by not saying their names, and how and when I met them. I'm only relaying to you circumstances that you may figure a relevance with. And in true Elle Woods fashion... I have a point, I promise.
To cut the long story short, the real situation is this... They broke up after a 2 year old relationship largely because of the guy's immutable playful nature that had been excessive and redundant, resultantly provoking the girl to end it completely. Of course, I liked what she did, it's a woman's job to dump, but supposedly, guy is trying to win her back, with innumerrable tactics, to say the least. Fine, it's totally lucid, moving on from somebody you've been canoodling with for 2 years is not a piece of cake. However, how can you be sure that he's finally sincere this time? In our small talk, she was trying to say that she wants to give him YET another try. I was just like, "seriously??". I was guilelessly astounded. Like, are you dumb or something? Well, sure, she still loves him yadda yadda yadda, but why? If a guy doesn't take your commitment earnestly, once, twice, thrice... dude, it's about time to give him back to his momma.
You might say I may be a little too inconsiderate, but I'm a woman too, and I believe I know how it feels like. It's just not about letting go, it's also about retaining a little pride to yourself. Girls are not video games. That when you get corpsed on the first stage, you can turn the machine off and just try to get passed it another day. Same old shit over and over again. It should be tiring, yeah? Hence I'm intensely perplexed about her standpoint in this. I don't know what that guy fed my friend, but she seriously needs some rehabbing of some sorts. You know what, when I asked her what keeps her from conclusively unattaching herself, she simply replied, "sayang ang two years, e!". You can only imagine the words that raced out my spaghetti hole. It's only numbers, dude!
