It happens like this. One day you meet someone and for some inexplicable reason, you feel more connected to this stranger than anyone else – closer to them than your closest family. Perhaps this person carries with them an angel – one sent to you for some higher purpose; to teach you an important lesson or to keep you safe during a perilous time. What you must do is trust in them – even if they come hand in hand with pain or suffering – the reason for their presence will become clear in due time.
Though here is a word of warning – you may grow to love this person but remember they are not yours to keep. Their purpose isn’t to save you but to show you how to save yourself. And once this is fulfilled; the halo lifts and the angel leaves their body as the person exits your life. They will be a stranger to you once more.

I’m someone who always believes in destiny. That includes being born, growing up, love and being loved, growing old, and die. The two paragraphs above, I believe, are also the definition of a part of destiny.
Until 3 years ago, I’ve always been this innocent and naive young woman who put my trust in people, even the ones whom shouldn’t be trusted. Then I met this person. He opened my eyes so I could see that the world is not as beautiful as I thought it was and the “friends” that I loved are not as true as a real friend should be. He taught me that love is not always about equally taking and giving, but to sacrifice yourself in order to see your significant other happy. Deep inside, I’ve always known that this person is my “guardian angel” as he’s always the one keeping me safe when I’m not home.
Eventually, his halo did lift. That was the end of his role. I’ve changed to be a stronger, more independent and determined person than before, ready to stand for myself.
(Somehow I wish that he will and will not read this post at the same time. Sigh.)
Thank you for having been there for me, guarding and guiding me through the hardest times. I’m sorry for what I’ve done. I sincerely wish and continuously pray for you to have a better life. Thank you.
