I remember that line in Tagalog:
—Bea Alonzo as Basha, One More Chance (2007)
If she said that because she was weighed down with her relationship with her boyfriend (who was too “controlling” and “boring”), I say this because I am weighed down of all the responsibilities laid upon me. No, I’m not in a relationship right now, and I’m not planning to get into one in the next two to four years. However, all these work that I have to do in school, the pub, at home, at church—they direct my life! I don’t even know if I’m doing what I want, or perhaps, what I really need to do.
I guess I have to get down to the very essence of my life and purge away what needs to be purged away. I only have one body…and one life. I can only give it away but once. I have to reset my priorities and learn to say ‘no’ to extra baggages that weigh me down.
