... palagi bang masasaktan?
On the way back to Manila from our mission trip in Baguio, we watched The Breakup Playlist. It's a movie about two musicians who met at a music camp, fell in love, made beautiful music together, but eventually grew apart and broke up due to their ego and pride. It took them three long years to mature and realize what went wrong and what should have been done.
The title and the first line of this post actually came from the movie soundtrack. I can't help it, LSS e. Plus the fact that this morning (09.21), God's inspiration (through one of my daily devotionals) is about love.
What Is Love?
God's Response: Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. (1 Corinthians 13:7 )
A healthy definition of love is crucial to understanding the central message of the Bible. According to the Bible, love is not about sexuality, nor is it primarily a feeling. The Bible teaches that love is a commitment, a consistent and determined decision to think of others first, to put their needs above your own, and to serve them first. God loves us in that way, and gives us the ability to love others too.
God's Promise: There are three things that will endure - faith, hope, and love - and the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:13)
So, to answer the question above, yes. :) Ed Sheeran is right, loving can hurt. In fact, Incubus said it better, "love hurts." That's why we are also told to love til it hurts no more. Actually, that is close to impossible. Because the more you love, the more that you will get hurt. But if you truly love, the hurt would eventually be felt not as hurt but as love, that is, more love.

Love hurts. But it perseveres until the end. And in the end, it will all be worth it. ♥
Towards the end of the song, there's another question. Kailan ba ang tamang panahon? And as if we rehearsed, the sisters automatically commented, "Itanong niyo kay Lola Nidora!" :D
God, I miss the team (and our babies) already. And yeah, thank you, Eat Bulaga for the lessons we learn from the Kalye Serye. And thank you, Wally Bayola for bringing to life our favorite lola. :)
