Lesson on Emotional Attachment

“Getting emotionally attached to someone can sometimes make us forget that we still have a life to live” –A. Perez


It usually starts with him asking me how I am or how my day is…
That how it usually starts, a simple hi and hello and how’s work


With just that….my entire defense, the “Berlin Wall” that I have created to shield myself from him. The “Angat Damn” that I built to control the flowing of my tears will both seize to exist.


Suddenly in no time I found myself back to square one; Broken, Sad and Depressed.


So I decided to post a question on my Facebook in a form of a status…




Among the many responses I got from this post, only one got my attention and made me realize something. It came from the most unlikely person;


A former agent of mine;


“Getting emotionally attached to someone can sometimes make us forget that we still have a life to live” –A. Perez


This literally stopped me in my tracks and then I reached an almost enlightened phase
Yes! I was so busy thinking about him that I almost forgot that I do have a life to live.
We became so engrossed with the other person, or wasted a lot of our time.
Being Depressed, Sleeping it off, getting drunk or just plainly feeling sorry for ourselves that we forgot to live our lives.
We only have one life and we better make the most out of it!


When I was young, my mom always told not to be selfish and consider how other people would feel before you make a decision or an action. Will this time I would have to say


“I’m Sorry Mom, this time I will be selfish! I will put my feelings first for now!”



So I made a decision to change my life, I don’t want to wake up one day and realize that I wasted a great chunk of my life feeling sad for myself. I won’t!

sometimes we hold on to something because we have this feeling that it could be great.

@Abou -- i agree.. We hold on because of that.. But one thing i learned about being emotionally attached to someone.. is that.. We stopped living our lives and this is subconscious.. why? because of this delusion that our lives will be GREAT if he is included in the formula..

gasgas na ang pagsasabi ng "magiwan ka namn ng para sa sarili mo" pero madami padin nakakalimot.

Ay teka, bawala ata mag tagalog, teka... uhhhmmm

Moving on entails for us to acknowledge that the last person is just one fish in a big pond of many. We have been born void of any clothes, and definitely any partner, thus, we shall survive this ordeal.

This becomes difficult when we've decorated our world and made it revolve on one person. We loose our identity in submerging in such a fantasy.

Basta pare, ewan. Nakakahinayang ang memories I know, pero gagawa ka din ng mas maganda nyan with another person. Drop it and move on. haha. Di ko na alam pinagsasasabi ko.

@T.Thoughts --> I love this line:
"..Nakakahinayang ang memories I know, pero gagawa ka din ng mas maganda nyan with another person.."
And i agree.. gasgas na ang linyang magiwan ka naman para sa sarili mo. but how come we always forget...

So sabihin ko nalang.. "Next Person Please!"

because we are still hoping, and keep on hoping that we can still be together in the end....
