Truth. Lies. And Everything In Between.

The 2nd Year…

This holy week, the death and resurrection of Jesus is once again being remembered and so is my relationship with Ipz. We turned 2 years this week and honestly, we barely made it. Wednesday, April 8 was the day that marked our official 730 days of love. Well, I could say that the past year was really heart breaking and without that hurt, I guess we were not able to learn to appreciate each other more. Love and Pain, Pain and Love, it goes hand in hand, two emotions that will make or break you.

The past year tested our limits endlessly. We were hurt in all aspects and in the process, our obligations to our family suffered. Yup, the year was dramatic and there came a time that I wanted to give up. Everytime I had that feeling, the memories I spent with Ipz flashes back to me. It’s true when hope fades, everything that matters and important to you shatters, making you weak and leads you to a way out – giving up. I admit that I felt weak and vulnerable, clouding my decisions and doubting myself more. But still, I searched for that silver lining, not wanting to give up on myself, or on her. I felt strong and for a long time… hopeful. Twelve months, I kept doing this and the smiles eventually came again. We learned and against the tempest, we were defiant. Ipz became more understanding, considerate and most of all loving. She never stopped believing in me and I never gave up on her.

We learned a lot with the hurt we experienced the past year. We learned to appreciate rather than hate. We learned how friends are so important in this sandbox we are living in. We learned that money gives temporary happiness and everything that it can’t buy is priceless. We learned that what doesn’t kill us, just makes us stronger and as long as we have each other we could face anything. We learned and took seriously the virtues of Faith, Hope and Love. But most importantly, we learned one thing that made us reach our 2 years and I believe will take us further… We learned to forgive.

As the 3rd year awaits us, I know that the inevitable might happen, but then again it also brings with it a promise of a “Happily ever after

Ipz, I am sorry for all the hurt and I want you to know that I am no closer to being a “better man” without you.
