Forgiveness- The past does not dictate the future unless you let it.


Entering a year full of blessings is a sign that I know, I totally forgive the past. It’s been 2 years and a month when we both decided to become strangers. As years gone by, I heard a lot of stories about you. To be honest, every-time that I had a chance to hear stories about you, the memories from the past repeatedly runs in my mind. The pain, the tears that I’ve shed, and the day that you left. 

Today, we are in a different time. All wounds were Healed already. We learned how to forgive, we learn to embrace each other and we accept the challenge to smile together. The true happiness will come when you let go of the hurt that’s holding you back. We both matured now….I guess? 

I am thankful now that I know we all move on from the past. Masaya pala iyong nakikita mo ang mga mali mo at pagkakamali nila na tinatawanan nyo na lang. Wala  mangyayari kong panghahawakan parin natin hanggang ngayon ang galit ng nakaraan. 

To be honest even though I’m the one who initiated this moment, I’ve got butterflies in my stomach. I have a cold sweat running on my head down to my neck. My heart beats fast because I don’t know what’s happening at this moment. Iyong kaba na hindi mo pwedeng ipahalata sa kanila. Na akala mo ngayon lang ‘yong kahapon. 

Masaya ang pagkikita puno nang kwentuhan ng kahapon at mga nakalipas na nagbigay sa amin ng leksyon. Masarap magpatawad lalo na kong ang pagpapatawad ay bukal sa loob mo at bukal mong tinanggap na walang halong panghihinayang. Ngayon haharapin natin ang bagong kabanata nang ating buhay. Siguro hindi natin alam kong maibabalik pa natin ang dati, Iyong dati na tayo, kayo na sabay na nangangarap sa bawat bukas na darating. Bahala na ang tadhana ang magtakda kong sa huli ay maari pang mangyari ang mga bagay na naudlot ng panahon. Hindi man Fairy tale ang kwento natin pero pra syang kwento na pwede nating ihalintulad dito, Happily ever after.

Anger makes you smaller, while forgiveness forces you to grow beyond what you were.”
