RATED PG: The Conclusion

This is Muelle Pier in Puerto Galera. Taken 30 minutes after leaving White Beach while waiting for my boatride to Batangas Pier.

The events in the past week has just closed with a recent text message that was sent by him. It made me sweat, making my fever subside. He texted me a quote:

"if u found a hundred reasons to give up, find a million reasons why you should not.." - Grey's Anatomy

Being a text addict myself, I replied with a quote as well:

"Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down." - Oprah Winfrey

Then he threw in another quote:

"Being alone sometimes gives you space to grow. Sometimes it's hard to grow when you're too close to someone. Remember that trees are planted far from each other so they can spread their branches and be mature."

I replied back:

"You have a point. The messages you sent reads familiar"

Then I forwarded another quote, as I thought that this is just one of those text quotes battle, common among friends.

"What if you're standing between two telephone booths and you really need to use one? You can only choose one. The one on the left is functioning well, but someone's inside. The one on the right is empty, but you're not sure if it's broken.

Are you going to wait for the one on the left even if you're not sure when the person inside would leave?

Or would you rather take the chance offered by the right booth, even if you're not certain it would work?

good eve.."

Then I went down to get a jug of water, essential for my recovery. When I reached for my phone, there was a new reply:

"Yeah, those messages came from you, you have to choose what your heart and mind really wants, we always have the choice, the problem is the outcome. Whatever it may be, lets just be the best what we can be."

I don't know why he returned back the messages I sent him in the past month. Whatever the real score is on his end, I have no idea and I don't want to know. What he said was true enough.

Minutes later, I responded back:

"That's true, and to all the choices I've made in the past, I regreted a few of them as I made the worst decisions in life..but that is where I learned from testing the waters..at least I don't have much "What If's" to worry about: live, learn, and accept the outcome."
