You’re in a relationship and you know it’s not right and you just think, “It’s too late, we’ve been together too long. Oh, we’re living together; how would I get another apartment? Oh, we got engaged; how could I break it off? Oh, the invitations have been mailed.” And the fact is, there comes a day when you gotta go. And you go and you look back and you think, “It would’ve been so much kinder if I had gone when I knew I was supposed to go instead of lying to myself and thinking it might work out and staying too long.”

Monthly Targets, CER and KPIs Come and Go, But Memories are Forever

According to research, averagely, a person will meet 10,000 people in his/her lifetime. So the total 44 persons that I’ve met in this cluster will correspond to just .44% from the entirety of the figure. But then again, it is just a figure.  The memories that we had speaks louder than those numbers.

Though I’ve been into many changes, I’m still not a fan of it. As much as possible, I would like to stay somewhere familiar, because adapting, for me, has always been difficult. I wish I could stick around for a little more time. Sadly, I’ve been working at night since I was 19 and my body is now appealing for some melatonin (a type of hormone that you get when you sleep at night.) Thanks Wikipedia!

This sounds so casual, that we hear it everyday and everywhere to a point that sometimes, it loses its meaning. But let me try, thank you. Thanks for the opportunity for letting me be part of the team (no choice. HR put me here.) Thanks for the harmonious relationships that make work less boring and stressful. Thanks for the tolerance. Haha. And sorry if at times I have said or done something uncalled for.  Ranking third in Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs is Social Needs. This is where the sense of belonging, love, and family should be fulfilled so you can proceed to the next level of needs. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for filling that level for me.

I wish you all the best, success, and happiness as I wish the same to mine.

No goodbyes. Just a wish of a future encounter in the languages I was able to learn in 26 years of my existence.

Hasta luego.

See you soon.

À bientôt !

Falling for you
wasn’t by choice,
but I did anyway.
And I told myself
that it was
That loving you
even on my own
was okay.
So I gave you my heart
without expecting you
to give me yours back.
I loved you,
I stayed for you,
to watch
to appreciate
to give
and to show you
that there are people
that will do anything
it takes
to make you happy
to make you smile
to make sure,
that you are given
all you deserve
even if the person you grow
to love in the end,
is someone
whose name
is much different
from mine.
