Opposite of Love

I was watching a Filipino telenovela the other night. And a line really struck me. “The opposite of love is not hate, it is indifference.” Well, I guess it is really true for me. Coz even if you say that you totally hate this person, but always pays attention to him and thinks often about him, then you still love the person. But if you say you love a person but you’re indifferent to him and becoming insensitive to his feelings, then think again if you still really love that person. And don’t people get more hurt if the one they care about is indifferent to them?

Am I that bad already? I had been to two retreats already, and it’s not yet the middle of the year. I hope not. My guess is maybe God is answering my prayers through these retreats. And it is true. My prayers were answered except for one. Does that mean I’ll be attending another retreat again before the end of the year?!?!

This leads me to another topic. Why do I hurt someone I love so much and someone who loves me? With regards to my family, I have answered that question already. But with regards to a special friend… a special relationship, I am still reflecting on it. Maybe I am bad after all. I had been selfish. I still can’t understand how can I hurt someone who have only shown me love. Can someone help me understand??

I just came back from visiting provinces in Visayas and Mindanao. Don't ask me about the tourist spots there for I did not have any opportunity to visit those places. But I enjoyed my stay in the provinces I have visited. Also, at last I have reached Mindanao. And been to Camiguin. But just left me bad memories. The people there are really warm and hospitable except for some. But never got to enjoy the sites I dreamed of visiting coz I had an accident just before I get to go. Sad.. Well, all I got in Camiguin are accidents and scars. I hope next time I visited that place, I'll fully enjoy it. Next stop.. Batanes (i hope soon..) :)
