Sana maintindihan mo na kaya ako lumayo sa iyo dahil hindi ko kayang makihati sa pagmamahal mo… Nararamdaman ko na may kaunti ka pang nararamdaman para sa akin, pero nakikita ko naman na mahal mo rin ang partner mo. At may mga anak kayo. Ayokong part-time lang ako. Kaya lumayo na ako na hindi na nagsasabi sa iyo. Ayokong makigulo pa. Kung talagang minahal mo ako, sana noon ka pa nagsabi at hinanap mo ako. Pero di kita nakitaan ng effort. Ginusto mo yan. Wala akong magagawa kung yan ang pinili mong landas. Sana maging mabuti kang asawa at ama sa pamilya mo. Kung maaari, sana ang pagsasama nyo ng partner mo, may basbas na ng Panginoon. Yun ang idinalangin ko ng pinili kong palayain ka na. Sana makuntento ka na. At sana, hayaan mo rin ako makahanap ng para sa akin. Hindi ako galit o bitter sa iyo. Tanggap ko na hindi talaga tayo. Sana, maging masaya ka sa buhay mo ngayon.

Paalam.

Noon, sa tuwing nagtatagpo ang mga landas natin, naiinis ako sa sitwasyon natin dahil hindi tayo magtugma… kaya napagbubuntunan ko ang buhok ko.

Nagpapagupit ako ng sobrang iksi.

Maraming pagkakataon laging ganun ako.

Hanggang sa nasabi ko dati… pag ok na ako, magpapahaba ulit ako ng buhok.

At ngayon, mahaba na ulit ang buhok ko. At sumusulpot ka ulit sa buhay ko.

Pero ngayon, masasabi ko, ayoko ng pagupitan ang buhok ko.

Ibig sabihin noon, mas mahal ko na ang sarili ko, kaysa sa iyo…

In your life, you’ll make note of a lot of people. Ones with whom you shared something special, ones who will always mean something. There’s the one you first kissed, the one you first loved, the one you lost your virginity to, the one you put on a pedestal, the one you’re with…and the one that got away.

Who is the one that got away? I guess it’s that person with who everything was great, everything was perfect, but the timing was just wrong. There was no fault in the person, there was no flaw in the chemistry, but the cards just didn’t fall the right way, I suppose.

I believe in the fact that ending up with someone, finding a longtime partner that is, does not lie merely in the other person. I can actually argue that an equal part, or maybe even the greater part, has to do with the matter of timing. It has to do with you being ready to settle down and commit to someone in a way that goes beyond the little niceties of giddy romance.

How often have you gone through it without even realizing it? When you’re not ready to commit in that mature manner, it doesn’t matter who you’re with, it just doesn’t work. Small problems become big; inconsequentials become dealbreakers simply because you’re not ready and it shows. It’s not that you and the person you’re with are no good; it’s just that it’s not yet right, and little things become the flashpoint of that fact.

Then one day you’re ready. You really are. And when this happens you’ll be ready to settle down with someone. He or she may not be the most perfect, they might not be the brightest star of romance to ever have burned in your life, but it’ll work because you’re ready. It’ll work because it’s the right time and you’ll make it work. And it’ll make sense, it really will.

So that day comes when you’re finally making sense of things, and you find yourself to be a different person. Things are different, your approach is different, you finally understand who you are and what you want, and you’ve become ready because the time has truly arrived. And mind you, there’s no telling when this day will come. Hopefully you’re single but you could be in a long-term relationship, you could be married with three kids, it doesn’t matter.

All you know is that you’ve changed, and for some reason, the one that got away, is the first person you think about.

You’ll think about them because you’ll wonder, “What if they were here today?” You’ll wonder, “What if we were together now, with me as I am and not as I was?”. That’s what the one that got away is. The biggest “What if?” you’ll have in your life.

If you’re married, you’ll just have to accept the fact that the one that got away, got away. Believe me, nomatter how fairy tale you think your marriage is, this can happen to the best of us. But hopefully you’re mature enough to realize that you’re already with the one you’re with and this is just another test of your commitment, one which will just strengthen your marriage when you get past it. Sure, you’ll think about him/her every so often, but it’s alright. It’s never nice to live with a “might have been,” but it happens.

Maybe the one that got away is the one who’s already married. In which case it’s the same thing. You just have to accept and know that your memories of that person will probably bring a nice little smile to your lips in the future when you’re old and gray and reminiscing. But if neither of that is the case, then it’s different. What do you do if it’s not yet too late? Simple…find him, find her. Because the very existence of a “one that got away” means that you’ll always wonder, what if you got that one?

Ask him out to coffee, ask her out to a movie, it doesn’t matter if you’ve dropped in from out of nowhere. You’d be surprised, you just might be “the one that got away” as well for the person who is your “the one that got away.”

You might drop in from out of nowhere and it won’t make a difference.

If the timing is finally right, it’ll all just fall into place somehow and you know, I’m thinking, it would be a great feeling in the end, to be able to say to someone, “Hey you, you’re the one that almost got away.” =)

Found this long ago… sorry I can’t remember which site 😦

=======================

One day, Plato asked his teacher Socrates, “What is love? How can I find it?” Socrates answered, “There is a vast wheat field in front. Walk forward without turning back, and pick only one stalk. If you find the most magnificent stalk, then you have found love.” Plato walked forward, and before long, he returned with empty hands, having picked nothing. His teacher asked, “Why did you not pick any stalk?” Plato answered, “Because I could only pick once, and yet I could not turn back. I did find the most magnificent stalk, but did not know if there were any better ones ahead, so I did not pick it. As I walked further, the stalks that I saw were not as good as the earlier one, so! I did not pick any in the end.”

Socrates then said, “And that is LOVE.”

On another day, Plato asked Socrates: “What is marriage? How can I find it?” His teacher answered, “There is a thriving forest in front. Walk forward without turning back, and chop down only one tree. If you find the tallest tree, then you have found marriage”. Plato walked forward, and before long, He returned with a tree. The tree was not bad but it was not tall, either. It was only an ordinary tree, not the best but just a good tree. His teacher asked, “Why did you chop down such an ordinary tree?” Plato answered, “Based on my previous experience, I had walked through the field, but returned with empty hands. This time, I saw this tree, and I felt that it was the first good tree I had seen, so I chopped it down and brought it back. I did not want to miss the chance.”

Socrates then said, “And that is MARRIAGE.

On another day, Plato asked his teacher, “What is paramour?” Socrates answered, “Go to the forest again. You are allowed back and forth if you like, and pluck the most beautiful flower.” Plato walked forward, after 2 hours he returned with a vivid flower but a little drooped. His teacher asked, “Is this one the most beautiful follower?” Plato answered, “I had walked for 2 hours. I found this was the most beautiful flower, so I picked it. But it had been drooping on my way back.

Socrates then said, “And that is PARAMOUR.”

On another day, Plato asked his teacher, “What is life?” Socrates asked him to go to the forest again, allowed back and forth as well, and pluck the most beautiful flower. Plato walked forward. However he hadn’t come back for 3 days. His teacher went to find him. When he saw Plato’s camping in the forest, he asked:” Have you found the most beautiful flower?” Plato pointed a flower near to his camp and answered, “This is the most beautiful flower!” “Why didn’t you take it out?”  Socrates asked.  “Based on my previous experience, if I pick it, it would be drooping. Even though I didn’t pick, it would die in a couple of days for sure. So I had been living by its side while it was blooming. When it’s drooped, I was up to find another one. This is the second most beautiful flower I have found!”

Socrates then said, “You’ve got the truth of LIFE”

“Love” is the most beautiful thing to happen to a person, it’s an opportunity you don’t realize its worth when you have it but only when it’s gone like the field of stalks. “Marriage” is like the tree you chopped, it’s a compromise; you pick the first best thing you see and learn to live a happy life with it. Having an affair is alluring. It’s like lightning — bright but disappeared so quickly that you cannot catch up with and keep it. “Life” is to follow and enjoy the every beautiful moment of living. I especially like the thought of  “life”, that’s why I can enjoy my life wherever I live.

Dear @Pictory:

“If something was meant to be, it is. If not, it wasn’t. Why pine for the illusions of the past? Love is a drug. Live free & happy!”
—@CameraMaster

Think about the people missing from your life, and how you feel about them. What we remember — and what we forget — may reveal more about ourselves than about them. We have photos, letters, souvenirs, and fragments of memory, but our powerful imagination takes over from there: We color in the blanks. And that’s OK. Retouching old loves is a way of understanding what we want. It helps us find our way to new ones.

It’s impossible to know whether the experiences below are about infatuation, true love, lust, or something else entirely. But we can be sure that each of these contributors learned about life and themselves in the process.

Sometimes it’s best to leave the past in the past. Consider your moment — whether it was a summer or a year. You decide whether it’s better to confront, contemplate and dissect the reasons why, or just sit and smile over a glass of wine remembering the one that got away.

Nanaginip ako kagabi ng 3 leon. Nasa isang malaking grassland daw ako, at may kasama rin akong mga ilang bata… may nakita kaming pader at sumampa kami doon. Noong nasa kabilang side na ako ng pader doon ko nakita mula sa pinanggalingan namin ang 1 malaking leon na parang gumugulong-gulong sa damuhan… sa paglakad-lakad namin ng mga bata may nakita pa kaming 1 pang leon na natutulog, paa lang nakita ko. Tapos sumunod isa pang malaking leon na itim naman ang hair nya, na parang si Scar sa Lion King, natutulog din at kitang-kita ko ang paggalaw ng katawan nya habang humihinga.

Nagising ako na nagtataka ano kaya ibig sabihin noon. Kaya sinubukan ko na i-research sa net. At nakakatuwa dahil may ilan dito na tumugma sa mga nangyayari sa akin ngayon.

Lion Meanings and Thoughts on Lion Symbolism

The symbolic meaning of lions, as one might imagine, primarily deals with strength.

The fact that it is a nocturnal creature means that the lion is a symbol of authority and command over subconscious thought (as night is an ancient symbol of the subconscious – or dream states).

It’s interesting that the lion is considered by many ancient cultures to be a solar animal symbol, however it is primarily a nocturnal creature, conducting its hunting activity mostly at night. Further, the lioness is considered a lunar animal.

This serves as a symbolic message of balance and sound judgment. In that the lion shares the world of both night and day, the lion bears a message of prudence to us. In other words, the lion asks us to not overdo in certain areas of our lives. Rather, keep an even mind and an overall balance in our life activities.

Other than a symbol for strength, other symbolic attributes of the lion include:

    Courage
    Power
    Royalty
    Dignity
    Authority
    Dominion
    Justice
    Wisdom
    Ferocity

In Egypt, the lion represented the ferocious heat of the sun and was seen in the likeness of Sekhmet who is the Egyptian goddess known as the Eye of Ra. She is the power that protects the good and annihilates the wicked.

In ancient Greece, lions were identified with Dionysus, Phoebus, Cybele, and Artemis because myth indicates lions drew the chariots for these gods and goddesses. Here, the symbolic meaning of lions revolved around protections and they were viewed as guardians of the dead as well as guardians of palaces, doorways, shrines and thrones. They were also ultimate protectors of hearth and home.

In Hinduism, the lion is an avatar (embodiment or personification) of Vishnu.

In Buddhism the Buddha sits upon the lion as a throne of consistency, strength and wisdom.

In alchemy, the symbolic meaning of lions is associated with the highly idealistic and prized attributes of gold.

The symbolic meaning of lions in England is shonw in heraldic art where it is a common emblem of English sovereigns because of these lion-like traits:

    leadership
    strength
    royalty
    courage
    honor

As a zodiac symbol – those with the sign of Leo likely possess some lion’s personality traits such as:

    Intuition
    Self-confidence
    Fiery
    Territorial
    Controlling
    Passionate
    Generosity
    Loyalty

Those born under the sun sign Leo are fiercely independent, confident and in control.

They are creative and influential forces and have the internal power to make positive (or negative) changes in their lives and the lives of others around them.

They are very loyal people, and will defend friend and family honor to the death. My friend Göran Jönsson has perfectly captured the strength and ferocity the Leo represents in his zodiac pendant shown left.

Lions as dream symbols indicate we may feel as though we are being preyed upon, or we are in a position to defend ourselves. Dreaming of lions may also be a sign of our need to get in touch with our emotions, and tame them if necessary.

In esoteric studies, the lion makes its appearance in the Tarot where it is illustrated in the Strength card of the Major Arcana.

When we observe the lion in nature, we detect an easy strength and a natural dignity. The lion is born powerful, and power comes naturally to it. There is no false bravado as the lion has no need of it.

When the lion comes to us it is a sign for us to step into our natural birthright of power. Each of us is born powerful and divine. The lion reminds us of this.

Other messages the lion shares with us:

  –  Hold your head high – even in times of conflict – conduct yourself with dignity
  –  Stand tall, remember your birthright of power
  –  Perhaps it’s time to show your authority (not in a dominating way) but lead others with a loving heart
  – It may be time to defend something that is dear to your heart – defend it fiercely if you must.
   – Have courage, have faith.

As with all signs and symbols, the symbolic meaning of lions should be special and personal to each of you. This only provides you with a brief summary of the various symbolic meanings available. Ultimately it is you who determines your own unique and symbolic relationship with the lion.

Dreams About Lions or Tigers Meaning
Bridget Webber
Ranked #1 in Psychology

Dreaming about lions and tigers can be interpreted in several ways, depending on what you personally associate with them, and universal symbolism.

Sometimes you may have dreams which you suspect have a hidden message. Dreams about lions or tigers can be particularly perplexing if you don’t understand what they mean. Your subconscious could be attempting to tell you something that’s trapped in the deep recesses of your mind.

According to the psychoanalyst Freud, things which are painful for us to access consciously can become trapped in our unconscious life. A follower of Freud’s, Jung, believed that thoughts from our subconscious, and the collective unconscious, can rise into our dreams, and that these dreams can be interpreted if we examine dream imagery and symbols.

According to Jung, the collective unconscious is a universal pool of knowledge we can tap into while dreaming. Animals such as lions or tigers in a dream, would represent common factors we all know about them, and relate to something happening in our personal life.

If you dream about lions or tigers, the first place to begin if you want to practice the art of dream interpretation, is to list facts you know already about the animals, along with any sayings, thoughts, feelings and traits you believe them to have. For example lions are known for:

    Being proud
    strong
    Brave

There are stories pertaining to lions you may have heard of also which could influence your dreams meaning, such as Born Free, and the tale of the lion who had a thorn removed from his paw by St Jerome.

If the two examples pertain to your brain store of information regarding lions, you could add to your list:

    Wildness
    Gratitude

If you dreamed about tigers you would build a list about what you associate with tigers, in the same way you compiled the lion list. For example, you may think of tigers as being:

    Frightening
    Beautiful
    Rare

Tigers are associated in films, books and sayings with being both fearsome, and friendly. The way you interpret your dream with them in, will depend upon the circumstances in which the tiger presented itself, and the type of character form the tiger projected. A cartoon tiger, such as Tigger from Winnie the Pooh in a dream may have something to do with childhood, or your inner child. However, a tiger which comes across as vicious and wild, bearing teeth and flashing his claws, is more likely to have something to do with primitive feelings, such as aggression or shock.

The next step to interpreting the meaning of dreams about lions or tigers is to think closely about what happened to you the day before your dream. Perhaps you had a shocking or frightening encounter with someone? In which case the wild animal could represent the person who upset you, and your deepest feelings about the experience.

If you were angry or aggressive the day before your dream, the lion or tiger may represent you. In which case your subconscious may be showing you how aggressive you were, or how angry you felt about something, or towards someone.

Jung also believed that each individual has a shadow side, which goes along with the theory that where there is good there is bad, and where there’s dark there’s also light. In order to fit in with society and behave properly, we may repress our shadow side. This happens when a person is excessively nice all the time, but secretly feels angry now and then while hiding their true feelings from the outside world.

Feelings which are suppressed, as in willfully withheld, can become repressed, as in pushed into our subconscious out of sight, even from ourselves. Wild, or scary creatures in dreams, such as lions, tigers, sharks, wolves and snakes, sometimes represent our shadow side, which is desperate to resurface because we haven’t paid it any attention.

If you have nightmares about lions or tigers, according to the teaching of Freud and Jung, you probably need to become better balanced for your own good. If you hide your true feelings a lot, and never let off steam they can surface as nightmares or result in angry outbursts. Dealing with them as they occur can prevent them building up.

Remember that dreams of lions or tigers can be positive, particularly if you associate them with positive traits on your list. If, for example, you dream that a lion sits beside you looking strong and beautiful, perhaps you’ve just done something in your waking life to be proud of, and shown great strength of character and courage.

Likewise, dreaming of a tiger playing, and rolling with you as you laugh and enjoy each others company, could show you’ve successfully integrated your shadow side into your personality, and that the tiger side of you is now capable of standing up for you, and making you brave. This leaves you free to relax and be playful, safe in the knowledge that you are capable of taking care of yourself.

Lions and tigers are special creatures. Tigers particularly, are becoming rare due to mankind’s bad behavior and lack of respect. You are fortunate if you see them in a dream, as they are powerful symbols which can be bought to your aid when you need them, or help you understand deep emotions you may not always want to deal with.

Nakarelate talaga ako sa meaning na binigay nila tungkol sa leon. Iniisip ko nga na ang 3 leon na tinutukoy sa panaginip ko ay ako, ang nanay ko at ang kapatid ko. Sa ngayon, nasa punto ako ng buhay ko na kailangan kong manindigan at maging matatag sa pamilya ko… Mahirap man pero sisikapin namin na mapagtagumpayan namin ang pagsubok na ito. Sana, magabayan kami ng Diyos sa lahat ng aming gagawin, maging mapagkumbaba pa rin ang aking loob at magkaroon ng malinaw na pag-iisip sa bawat pasyang gagawin ko para sa pamilya namin.

@每日英文语录: Sometimes, just to be a friend is all worth it, because sometimes friendship last longer than love. 有时候,做朋友就完全够了,因为友情有时比爱情更长久。
