If you have read ‘Of Fries And Is It Worth It?’, you would remember that I have been wondering whether or not a guy was worth it.

You would also recall my sister cleverly making the comparison between fries and salapao – ‘Fries’ being someone who’s worth it, and ‘Salapao’ being someone who isn’t (sorry, salapao-lovers!)

Anyway, tonight I got my answer.


It’s actually the answer I knew all along. I just couldn’t bring myself to admit it.

There are still some unanswered questions in my mind though, like..

Why can’t I pull myself away?

Why do I keep trying to hold on to something that was never real?

Why do I keep making excuses for him?

Why do I keep apologizing when I have done nothing wrong?

Why do I allow myself to be treated in such a way?

Why do I keep hoping he would change?

Maybe one day I’ll be able to answer those questions.

But for now, as hard as it’s going to be, it’s time to let go.

I’d like to leave you with some very true and wise words which really helped open my eyes.
