this heartache

this was taken last sunday when i decided to suprise harry after his shift (at 9:00 AM) for breakfast at one of the retaurants in I.T. Park. decided to bring along snickers so he won’t grow up ignorant from the world since he’s mostly couped up in the room. he can’t go out because our old dog is so mean and possessive of our attention (especially my dad’s) that we’re afraid she’d attack him. being a sunday morning, the park was serene, perfect for just hanging out and chilling. i sat by the pond for a while and enjoyed being alone for a few minutes. those are one of my favorite moments — when i can just be alone and be allowed to think. 
so this weekend, harry and i watched one of the local movies ‘miss you like crazy‘… i’ve always loved the tandem of john lloyd cruz and bea alonzo on-screen (don’t like her too much anywhere else..haha!) the movie was predictable but still interesting. i loved the concept. i loved the scenes. i love the conversations and the lines. and it brought about certain emotions that i’ve suppressed for a while. 
i miss my best friend so damn much. it’s harder breaking up with a friend than with a boyfriend. you’d take years of friendship and just throw it away. she was my soulmate. we could be together and not say anything but know how we are feeling. we had a falling out almost 3 years ago and my heart is still aching, everyday. although i have harry, there are times when i’d feel so damn alone because i lost the only person who can understand me without asking why. i have tried opening up to my other friends but it’s just different. she’s in hawaii and i’m here. miles apart and we can’t bridge this gap that we have. 
so now i have woken up with very swollen eyes, having cried myself to sleep last night.

    that's so sweet of you to surprise harry and snickers is adorable in these shots 🙂
    on the sadder topic, i do agree that breaking up with a friend is harder to deal with and heal from compared to breaking up with a boyfriend. feel better, gizelle, and keep a smile on that face. life can always surprise you when you least expect it. xx

    What a super cute dress… 🙂

    And, I'm sorry to hear aout your and your best friend. 😦 Me and my BFF had a falling out about 8 years ago. We didn't speak for a year and a half. (we also known eachother since we were 6, we're now both 27).. anyway when we finally spoke and sorrys were spoken, we had to rebuild our friendship.. and today it's the strongest friendship I have. I call her my soulmate #2 (my hubby is my #1)… and I love her to death! Maybe you and your friend are just “on a break”.. I hope things will work out for you 🙂

    Take care sweetie.

    xx Love & Aloha

    That's so sad to hear. Could you build bridges, even if you are far apart? Nothing is worth losing a friend over.

  24. haven't have the time to watch miss you like crazy. but i sure will… hopefully i'll watch it twice. first with the bf so he'll learn some relationship lessons (although he hates mushy tagalog movies LOL) and second with the girlfriends for all the KILIG moments. LOL

    having a thing for polka dots, i sure want to raid your closet! love that dress. 🙂

    Aw, about your friend, that's happened to me before. It's amazing how you can be so close with someone and then suddenly, it's like you're strangers.
