Singer-songwriter Donnalyn Bartolome could help but get emotional on camera. This is as she unboxed all the things returned to her by her ex-boyfriend for 5 years.
Donnalyn was already in tears when she started shooting her video as she opened up about her ex-partner and why it didn’t work out between them. She said that he was a private person who didn’t want to be put under the spotlight, which is what made it difficult for them to continue their relationship.
She proceeded to unbox the items, which included things she loved, things he bought for her, and things she left at her ex’s place, such as balloon bouquets, LED lights, makeup, and even her old laptop. It was when she opened a package with BTS keychains and merchandise that Donnalyn began to cry.
“I know to a lot of people, they say being with someone is a choice. And I’ve chosen to be with this person for a long time. But it’s just… we love each other, but we’re not right for each other,” she added. “They say it’s hard to hold on. I feel that it’s much harder to let go. Letting go of the hope that you two are right for each other is so difficult. Letting go of the hope that you two will work out is so hard.”
She also penned an emotional open letter to her ex, who she did not name, on the description of her vlog.
“I prayed about you every night, thanking Him for bringing you into my life. Your existence and your love was what helped me keep going when I wanted to give up. That’s why I love you enough to let you go,” she continued. “I’m sorry for everything and I want you to know I’ve always forgiven you before you said every sorry in our almost 6 years of knowing each other. Always. I now accept that the kind of love I give isn’t right for you… for us. It might not be the right kind but it’s true.”
“I didn’t know peace would cost this much… and I don’t know when I’ll breathe again or when I’ll stop missing you… or think of you… all I know is I don’t want to ever see us hurt each other again and though I’m terrified I’ll regret leaving, if it means you’ll find The One I was trying to be for years, then I’ll be bitter and angry hahaha jk. I know I’ll be okay because my love for you is true and true love is when you want the one you love to be happy even if it means it’s not with you,” she ended.
