in between friends.. *save it or keep it* between friends..

ha! friends.. buddies.. the ones who can always put your ‘out-of-tune’ self in-tune..! the ones who know just how to help you have fun after a long and hard day’s work, the ones who put rainbows on your stormy days.. The group that can always see the funny side of a very serious matter..  The team you call ‘barkada‘..

They say that your friends represent the unborn world of your personality.. THEY are YOU in some ways.. Each and every one of your friends represents a part that is actually YOU.. With a business-minded friend, you could discover that someone inside you who can actually think of things where money really matters. With a bubbly friend, you can discover that you can actually deliver a joke. The things you thought were not in your personality will suddenly come out of you when you’re with them.. haha! I never thought i could think of something ‘eeewww’ until every time im with them.. 😉

those are just a few things friends can make out of you..

but what if, unconsciously and as time passes, the friend who teaches you how to put a smile when all you want to do is pout, is the same friend who’s yet going to teach you how to love.. *whoa!*

RULE # 1 (and i guess is the ONLY rule among this team called FRIENDS): “Do Not Love ME more than you could love anyone in the group” (hindi tayo talo, walang ganunan)

yesterday, Thursday.. i was in my cube (in the office) when i had a meaningful chat with one of my closest buddies at work.. Suddenly we came to talk about this.. him being not really “in-to” loving a friend in the ‘next-level’ thing.. I told him that same here, it has always been my stand not to fall for someone you have grown sharing naughty minds for quite some time now..

Loving a friend in the ‘next-level’ would not be very encouraging (haha.. im lacking for words!).. for the simplest reason that loving a very close friend would mean risking the friendship you have built together for years through endearing hugs, good laughs, funny stories about each other, sharings of success, facing each other’s shortcomings together, and a lot of things you have shared that has real value than an overtime pay..

…but you cant really do something when someone in your group confesses that he/she is beginning to feel something for the other one.. worse, is that if the one feeling for someone in the group is YOU.. *patay tayo jan*..

It has always been a “no-one’s fault” when it comes to loving.. You just have to know what’s the right thing to do on what you feel.. It’s not just about what it is you’re feeling, it’s your Friendship that is at risk..

End realization..?

Just be careful.. Not all those who love their friends more than just a friend finds a bow and arrow, some or maybe mostly these people only find a double-edged sword that not only stabbed their feelings but killing the friendship as well..


keep your feelings (you can also let them know if you want but don’t expect)..  and decide to save the friendship! .. So you can also save yourself..

save it? or keep it?.. it’s always UP to you.. 😉

~keep loving! 😉

  1. You are such a good writer… keep it up… Anyways…

    I can say that we can be and/or must be the master of our emotion… We must know how to control them… Though I believe that there is no problem in falling in love with your friend as long as it in on the right timing… Love develops over time… Love passes through a process of molding each individual feeling… Love is a strong feeling that combines your emotion and mentality on how you will deal wit it. And of course love is friendship… Love is created in a right perspective so as the motive… We cannot control the time so as God but our emotion we can… Let’s see how God permits and unveils their feelings with each other. Through God’s timing love will lead the way no matter how you are related with him/her, no matter how strong your friendship is… We must not rely on our own understanding but let us God pour us with His wisdom to analyze our feelings…

    Isa ka talagang makata. Iba ang nagagawa ng “LOVE” ah. Hehehe!
    –It’s not wrong to love a FRIEND. Pero Siyempre kelangan isipin kung tama ba o mali yung NARARAMDAMAN natin na yun (mali ba ang magmahal?)… Ang mahalaga, mahalin mo ang sarili mo gaya ng pagmamahal mo sa kaibigan mo.
