Lonely, Me

-


"Here it comes. She's calling now," Ron said. "My girl friend's looking for me already."

I nodded and he motioned for me to keep quiet.

Ron was visiting Manila for a vacation. He's been based in Singapore for two years now and we decided to meet while he's town.

"So, do you love her?" I asked him.

"Well, I do. But I guess I'm not fully committed. I mean, would I be here with you if I am?" Ron said.

"So why are you with her then?" I asked

"It's lonely there," he answered quietly. "A little love can't hurt, right?"

I looked at him and I saw a look in his eyes that seemed to say "You do understand, don't you?"

Sometimes, I think everything we do in life is all geared to making ourselves just a little less lonely. And somewhere along the way, lines can get blurred. Who can blame a man for taking love when he needed it?

yeah - i guess you are right, what we do is always towards making our lives a little less lonely...

it's always when we think of our needs first without regard for others that screw things up.

Nakakaloka kaya dito sa Sg. :( Everyday, nalalagaan ako ng buhok... kasi sinasabunutan ko sarili ko. Bakit di na lang ako kumuha ng BF para two less lonely people in the workld na ang themesong ko, db?

Pero, I feel for you, Kane. Kasama mo sya, pero he has to attend to his girlfriend. Internal bleed ako pag ganyan.

Enjoyin mo yung mga moments like this... or that with him, habang nanjan sya. You're the life of the party, you're a gorgeous person inside and out.

Have a worthwhile weekend, Kane.

Sometimes what we do is buy time - long enough until we are able to figure what is missing within ourselves.

But is it really of love that he is seeking on that girl?
No. It’s neediness.
Specifically, the need to be less lonely.

It's within Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs: Safety and Security.

And I just have to echo that sometimes, we just need to hold on to that special moment in order for us to feel happy.

Even if that person is unavailable.

Living a lie is just as lonely.

it's a hard choice to find a love that is not just there when it's convenient.

i say fuck ron and his selfishness.

mas mabuti nang maging malungkot kesa mabuhay sa bangungot.

you don't just stuff things in your mouth just because you're hungry. It'll make your stomach go crazy eventually.

Nice blog 'ere. ;)
