When you are weak, don’t deceive yourself to be not. Accept that you are troubled, and you will find the exit, and eventually you will be heading towards the source of your strength.

Wings was a silent-type guy. He did not talk that much, yet they often had private conversations with Grace. Any sign of special treatment? Well, Grace treated him just like Rose; she knew that he was still coping with the lost of his twin brother. The two were perfect buddies, and she could better understand the situation.

After several days, Grace found out something. She was not sure about it, but she felt different with him. Was she in loved with Wings? She should not be. Even Rose insisted that she only treated Wings as her brother, but she knew exactly that her cousin had feelings for Wings… Rose was madly in love with William, and only Wings could best play his role. They were just the same.

She saw several video of William, mostly beach hang outs, and the twin brothers shared things in common. The way they talked, the way they laughed, and the way they liked things.

One day, Grace caught his gaze. But she was sure not to fall in love with this stranger—he was still to her, even Rose knew her well, but the short time they were together were not enough. She was really cautious about having relationship with somebody she did not know well.

The situation was too complicated. She had so many dreams, and it could not be stopped by her emotion. At least she knew exactly that she was not the subject, it’s Rose. She must keep silent. Along the way, she knew, she would definitely look after Wings just any other guy—nothing special.

What if he would insist? Honestly, she admitted she did not know how to resist. This guy was like her favorite cake she barely tasted, his tempting her, but no, she would resist.

Life is about choosing the right direction; it’s about extracting one simple essence or venturing out the complexity beyond… and get lost along the way.

Rose was not all alone, she had Wings with her. When William was reported missing after he and his buddies got stranded in the Islands of Batanes 7 months ago, Rose begun to fall on her knees. Her strong personality was tested by the lost of him. The shipwreck had shown no sign of human remains, until now she seemed lost somewhere; she knew William was still there, alive. Wings resembled exactly as his twin brother, but she is not falling in love with him. She loved William, and she would continue loving him even she would find one day that his dead.

“Rose, can you just forget him?” Said Grace, finding out Rose was looking out in nowhere. “Continue believing that his alive will deprived you to be happy.” She said sympathetically.

“I wanted to, but I just can’t. He always popped out here inside wherever I am.” She’s trying to hold back her tears, but it’s undeniable that she’s too drowned with emotion.

“Coz, you are here to release that, so I am here… you can cry on me, I will help you let him go.”

“When I found out that Dad was cheating, I told myself I would resist, that I will be strong for Mom, but now, I can’t make it.”

Rose held her strong personality, as strong as Carmen, but when her mother almost gave up, she tightened her grip, now, she would continue struggling to remain in place, or she would be washed away too. Fortunately, her heart was always positive that she won’t be taken away from her anchor!

The misery felt by her mother, and the sorrow she had inside won’t stop her.

Lesson: As I we talked about on how to cope with stress, the story above is a perfect example. Rose did not self-medicate. She did not lock in her room; she did not find the company of drugs and alcohol helpful to ease her feeling, she did not even hang out in night clubs. Instead, she found that the company of people close to her is helpful. She released it. She accepted she’s already weak. She took it as an opportunity to find strength again.
