Being away with someone you love is undeniably painful and sometimes just depressing, but what’s worst is when you can no longer be with that someone who thought was your destined soulmate. Starting from scratch can surely be done, but it is not that easy as you think it is.
The same can be said to a girl named Karla Andrea Bonifacio. Karla has recently posted a closure letter to her now ex-boyfriend and explained how she was hurt when they split after almost eight years of being on each others arm. It seems like a breakup is really hard to handle if you look at their story.
It actually took so much courage to post this…
But for the past 7 years & 7 months, people witnessed the love story that was Gio & Karla. ☺
For almost 8 years, I’ve only loved one person. He loved me since we were 14 but it took me 2 years to realize that I love him too.
We did a lot of things together. From sneaking out during highschool & lying to our parents that we have to do projects after school so that Gio & I can go to mall — with only 300 pesos that we saved up from our school allowance. We’d eat in food courts & share one iced tea. But it didn’t matter actually because we were happy.
Until we’ve reached college and we had to go to different schools. But I was very confident that we’d survive it… because we love each other. And we actually did. 😊 He was one of my motivations to finish school. Because I want a bright future with him. He would pick me up in school, he would help me with my projects, he would take me out to eat after a hectic day. He was all I see as I march during my graduation. And I can finally say, we made it. ☺
Months have passed & we both got employed. This was the time that we were able to do a lot of things. 300 peso pocket money became thousands, food courts became fancy restaurants, window shopping became real shopping, jeepneys became taxi, malls became out of town & even out of the country. He was there when my dad passed away. I was there for him when his mom passed away too. Through happiness & pain, we got each other’s back.
I experienced a lot of things because of him. Because he was there. He’d do everything to make me happy.
We were the ideal couple. We do everything together. I can’t even see myself loving somebody else. Because I already found my soulmate when I was still in St. John’s Academy’s green jumper, my black leather shoes with white socks & my backpack. My future was him. He was the person I want to see at the end of the altar.
I loved the relationship we had.
But it has come to an end.
To Gio, to the love of my life. To my constant companion, travel buddy, my shock absorber, the answer to my every whys. We’ve reached the end of the tunnel and it’s time to part ways.
Thank you for holding my hand during the journey. It was a worth while journey. A journey i will forever treasure in my heart.
I sincerely pray for your happiness, even if that happiness doesn’t include me anymore. ☺ I hope you reach your dreams. I may not be able to witness it anymore, but know that I will be cheering you from afar. You deserve to be happy, you deserve to love again. And I do too. I don’t regret ever loving you. Loving you was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. One day, I know we’ll cross paths again. One day I can look at you in the eyes & I won’t feel hurt anymore. One day, we’ll talk about how much we’ve loved each other and that helped us love another person. You will always have a special place in my heart. And let’s believe in love again. It’s okay. We will be okay. One day i believe we can be friends again.
To my family, mom & ate, my friends, you know who you are. THANK YOU. I wouldn’t be able to survive this if you guys are not there to pick up the pieces.
To those who believed in us salamat. But this is going to be my last post about Gio. About us.
To moving forward.
