The Hug (A Series, Part II)

Blog Entry THE HUG (A SERIES, PART II) May 12, ’09 12:31 PM
for everyone
It’s good to know that I am not the only person on earth who experiences the same things that I am experiencing right now. I am somehow enjoying this season wherein I am on a deep confusion, and the people around me are in their full support. others do not understand, but some are kind and wise enough, they let me feel secured about a lot of things.

An excerpt from Chicken Soup (don’t know what edition), HUGGING IS PRACTICALLY PERFECT. There are no movable parts, no batteries to wear out, no periodic check-ups, low energy consumption, high energy yield, inflation proof, nonfattening, no monthly payments, no insurance requirements, theft-proof, nontaxable, nonpolluting, and of course, FULLY RETURNABLE.

Because of the uneasiness that was bothering me lately, happiness became a necessity. But as if fate don’t want me to feel it yet, my friends are of no sight. Maybe they were just there, I was just so pre-occupied with thefreakin’ thing, that I wasn’t able to see them, to recognize them. How silly I was. Alright, I still am. (STUBBORN!)

I’ve been wanting this from the people around me ever since I started to value the thing called hugs. It somehow became a comfort whether I am happy or not. Every morning, I would wake up asking God to give me one. Though He gives me peace and love and grace and security and everything, I still longed for that one big hug, that one tight embrace.

One night, I deliberately sent a group message to selected people whom I know who could make me feel okay. “I need a hug.” Few sent their hugs through mms, and one person really went to our place just to give me that one thing. “Buti ate di pa ko nakakauwi.” That night I really asked God for a hug.

I told Nanan, I want a friend who would go here in the middle of the night just to make me smile. She replied, “Ate, hindi bestfriend ang kailangan mo, boyfriend.”
Err, I smiled.

A wise Kuya shared his thoughts, including the Men’s point of view regarding the things that turn them on. Because men are naturally aggressive, they prefer to like the girls who are reserved. Whenever a girl would say “I want a boyfriend.” in front of them, that, turns them off. Alright… I am that girl. My point is that, I am only saying that infront of a friend. Or friends. And basically, I’ve no intentions of them wanting me. I’m treating everyone as brothers and sisters in Christ for crying out loud! So why would I be bothered if what I am saying is a major turn off? I love them all anyway.

This is not new already: I love hugs and I’d love to hug everyone. (Those people whom I consider friends.) 

NOTE: Don’t be the first to let go whether you or the other person was the first to hug you. That way, both of you will feel the satisfaction of experiencing that tight embrace, that most likely, is from your God.

Bestfriend thing is now an old school. 

There are people whom I consider better friends, and honestly, I’m kinda shy to admit it. Stubborn enough not to let them know it.:)

kwento ako.,

i remember this one time you told me, “Ate Maan, sorry I couldn’t offer myself to be your bestfriend.,”
at ang sagot ko, “Dawin, I AM MORE THAN SATISFIED with the kind of relationship we have right now.,”
meaning, I DON’T NEED YOU AND I DON’T WANT YOU to be my bestfriend^^
lol

my comments are getting trashy, but then again, I want to let you know that I AM MISSING YOU BIG TIME!
(aya! mauuwi na naman yata ako ng ‘pinas natoh!)
