Detach. Verb.

This one is from The Lover’s Dictionary by David Levithan. One of my favorite books. And the word above is one my favorite entry on this lovable dictionary.

DETACH. Transitive Verb
1. to separate (something) from something larger
2. to separate (yourself) from someone or something
 
1. To separate or unfasten; disconnect: detach a check from the checkbook; detach burs from one’s coat.
2. To remove from association or union with something: detach a calf from its mother; detached herself from the group.
3. To send (troops or ships, for example) on a special mission.

Detach.


My take:


This word could mean burning bridges. You will separate your self from that situation, emotion and person.


1. Don’t pick that phone – Yeah, you read it. Please spare yourself from hearing the voice of that person. Or reading that text message which was composed with carefully chosen words. You know, just to remind you he/she still exist in your world.

2. Seen the message. Saw the mentioned name. – If you receive a message from FB or Twitter or any social media account you got, ignore it. You can read the message, yes, but please don’t start with your fingers typing in you response. (Actually, I’m OC when it comes to unread messages. I want them to be marked as READ. You get me, right?)

3. Cinderella Drama – If you’re invited to an event and that person is going, attend that event. Don’t let that person ruin your chance to socialize. After all, you have your own circle of friends to hang out with. But if you can’t stand to see him/her around, leave early. Tell your friends believable reasons why you need to go home or wherever you want.

4. Learn to Say No – This one is important. If you really want to detach yourself, you have to say NO to an invitation to hang out/dinner/attend a party/go here and there. If there’s any favor that this person is asking for, don’t allow yourself to do it. When you say YES, you’re allowing that person to take an initial step to be involved on your life (again). You’re starting to attract pain (again) and you don’t want that, right?

5. Busy BeeMake yourself busy. Cliche, I know, but it’s an effective one. Continue what you’re doing and create something new that can make you even busier.

The things I mentioned above will only be applicable if you REALLY WANT TO detach yourself from the things or people you don’t want in your life. There’s no turning back. It’s like hitting the Shift + Delete buttons on your keyboard. These things are for the brave. Completely letting go of the baggage that’s been haunting you and being a pain in the ass for the past couple of weeks/months/years. You won’t give a single damn about it. Now, you won’t care anymore.

Letting go is one shitty pain on your head but sometimes, you really need to do it. Seriously. Don’t linger on things that wouldn’t help on bringing out the best in you. Take one step at a time. Don’t be in a hurry to detach yourself. You’ll get there in time. Help yourself out.

And

Be happy.

Ano’ng Pag-ibig Mo?

Dahil patok sa’kin ‘yong mga kwentong puso na naka-publish sa internet, naisip ko lang na baka pwede ‘kong i-blog ‘yong mga paborito kong posts. Siguro kasi nakaka-relate ako? Baka naman may pinagdadaanan? Basta kung alin man d’yan. Tambay din nga pala ‘ko sa Narinig ko sa UP (Overheard at UP) at sandamakmak na kwentong sparks dun. Di ko nga alam ba’t di ako nagsasawang magbasa don eh. Kahit ‘di ako graduate dun eh tinatambayan ko pa rin. Bakit ba? Masaya eh. 😀

At kahapon lang, may isang post akong nagustuhan. Bilang ‘di naman ako miyembro nung page, eh ‘di ko ma-like ‘yong post. So, I’ll just blog it na lang. Eto ‘yon:

Ano nga ba ang pag-ibig?
Maraming nagtatanong at madalas inihahambing ang pag ibig sa kahit anong bagay sa mundo. Minsan ang pag-ibig parang..

Joke. Minsan pilit.

Tubig. Mahalaga pero naaaksaya.

School. Pinag-aaralan, pinag-uukulan ng panahon, pinagkakagastusan at siniseryoso.

Math. Dun ako mahina.

Science. Maraming dapat patunayan.

P.E. Minsan nakakapagod. Minsan boring. Minsan papawisan ka. Madalas, naglalaro ka lang talaga.

Plastic cover. Transparent.

Bible. Maraming Lesson.

Ipis na tinapakan. Akala mo patay na, yun pala buhay pa.

Tsinelas. Makakapaglakad ka ba ng ayos kapag wala ang isa?

Global warming.Hindi mo mamamalayang nararamdaman mo na pala.

Sikat ng araw sa umaga. Minsan magigising ka nalang, nagmamahal ka na.

Ulan sa gabi. Napapayakap ka sa unan.

Farmville. Pag may tinanim, may aanihin.

Halaman. Kapag hindi inalagaan, namamatay.

Coconut. Bigla nalang mahuhulog XD

Basketball. May shoot, may rebound, may foul.

Basketball ulet. Dapat give and take.

Chess. Touchmove. Wala ng balikan.

Yoyo. Madaming ups and downs

Stuff toy. Kapag bago parating kasama, pero pag luma na, echapwera na.

Paborito mong laruan. Kahit sira na, ayaw mo pa din bitiwan.

Antique. habang tumatagal, nagmamahal.

Greeting. Better late than never.

Boxing. Hindi maiiwasan na may masasaktan.

Injection. Minsan masakit talaga, pero minsan parang kagat lang ng langgam.

Pag-iigib. Nakakapagod.

Antok. Hirap labanan.

Sakit. Kumakalat, nakakahawa, lumalala. Gamot lang dito ay paglimot.

Sipon. Makapigil-hininga.

Ikaw, ano ang pag-ibig mo?

Syempre may she-share din ako sa pag-i pag-ibig na ‘yan.

Salamin sa mata. Para lang malinaw.

Blog. Daming rants. Dami ring raves.

Diet. May cheating.

Breadwinner. Nagsasakripisyo.

Art. Subjective.

Kape. Nakaka-adik.

Calendar. Daming dates.

Bicol Express. Maanghang pero masarap.

Volcanoes. Minsan active. Minsan dormant.

Pelikula. May katapusan. O kaya open-ended, bahala na kung anong ending gusto mo/nyo.
 

I’m sure, kayo rin may kanya-kanyang depinisyon ng pag-ibig na ‘yan. Pwedeng pareho tayo, pwedeng hindi. Share mo, dali!

Films for September

This month’s a lazy one for me (aside for broken CPU) when it comes to watching films. I just couldn’t drag myself in front of my computer and watch a lot of pending films. Maybe because I read a lot these days. It’s just a light reading, I tell you.

For now:

1. On the Job (OTJ) by Erik Matti. 2013.

 

2. Gangster Squad by Ruben Fleischer. 2013.

 

3. Machete by Ethan Maniquis and Robert Rodriguez. 2010.
