On being a free bitch, baby

One of my best friends is currently going through a rough patch with her boyfriend. She is, of course, very sad about this whole affair and being the terrific friend that I am, I text her every day, asking how she's holding up, getting updates, that sort of thing.

Now, making this about me because this is, after all, my blog and I am entitled to self-centeredness every once in a while...
When she rants to me about her boyfriend, I could not help but think, Buti na lang wala akong boyfriend. No drama, no fights, no one telling me what the hell I can and can't do (my mom can't even control me, who the fuck do you think you are?).
Times like these, I am grateful to be single.

It's just like Peter Angelo said, "Ang dami-daming na ngang poproblemahin sa buhay natin, dadagdagan mo pa ba ng love life?"

(I won't say no to love once it comes around again, though. I think it's all a matter of finding the right person to whom you should open your heart.)
I digress.


  1. Being's a blessing and a curse. What it is depends on how you look at it and where you stand at the moment. I think even when you're in a relationship, you still have to preserve a sense of singleness. In other words, you have to not lose yourself in it. So I think...before you get into one, you have to love yourself enough and understand that you don't really NEED someone to be happy.

    Alam kong di masyadong related yun. Wala lang. Gusto ko lang sabihin. Haha.

  2. You're right. In my last relationship, I lost all sense of self. My then-boyfriend was my priority, even though I said otherwise.
    Ngayon, when love comes again, I will know better than to let my world revolve around him :)


Drop me a line! And use exclamation points!
