I Fell In Love With A Married Guy And I’m Not Really Into Apologizing For It

Thought Catalog

That’s the most stupid expression in the world. ‘I fell in love’—as if you had no choice. There’s a moment, there’s always a moment; I can do this, I can give in to this or I can resist it. I don’t know when your moment was but I bet there was one. ― Patrick Marber, Closer

Since the moment I met my current boyfriend at a dinner party years ago, I have been his. He was married at the time, but in our moment nuptials didn’t matter. Nothing did. Except the immediate sense of knowing that a seedling of great love had been planted.

I chose to give in—to his devilish smile, attentive gaze, graying temples and effortless charisma, beneath which I sensed precious hints of vulnerability.

I am not exactly a stupid person, so I didn’t get involved with a married guy expecting him to leave his wife, in…

Blogging Authentically: Do You Apologize For Real Life?

The Siren's Tale

Blame it on too many years as a student, but any venture I take part in, I look for themes. The search for themes often takes place in subconscious gatherings, until my mind pieces together all the parts and comes to a new conclusion.

Recently, I’ve found some themes in the blogosphere that sit uncomfortably in my heart. Two major themes I’ve found tied together in the blogging world lately are: the fear of authenticity and the need to apologize for real life.

Authenticity Quote / from

In the middle of 2013, I read several “exposé” articles from well-loved blogs. These posts shed the aesthetic perfectionism seen featured on most blogs today, and the bloggers unabashedly shared photography and stories from their real day-to-day lives.

Helping In your Own Way

 In the past months, Philippines had been hit by calamities ( earthquake and typhoon Yolanda), places were ruined, families got broken through deaths and lives were devastated. It felt like the day of judgment has come due to those heart breaking events but sometimes its just a call for us to be reminded that we need each other to live.

 The great devastation that comes few months ago awaken people to have that passion of helping and be more aware of the environment. Donations in kind and cash came from different people all over the world. Even children do their part in helping and people from different ages who spare some time and spend it volunteering  It is then we see how a little help if bind together can do great things to affected families. Just the deed of helping out packing relief goods or donating your savings from your piggy bank or giving your old clothes or even sacrificing your parties just to help can do a big difference.


 Little acts of kindness that sincere can go a long way. It can draw a smile in every affected individual. Just a small time we spare to help or volunteer to something that can do good to someone is such a noble act. Your little help can have a big impact to the person who will be receiving it. Nothing beats the smile you see when you reach out to someone who is in great need of help. Its like giving sunshine to a gloomy place in your own little way.
