Baby Boy Tondol
Asiong32 Year 2 : Anniversary Post #1
It’s been six months I guess, since my last visit to Anda. The last time I was here was really a blast but this time its even more than that. Indeed, destiny has brought me back to this beautiful place. But what made this trip really special? Well, aside from seeing my good friend “adventure buff” and meeting new friends, it was “baby boy tondol” who made my stay worthwhile.
You see, “baby boy tondol” is just a regular guy just like you and me who really loves to travel. He is kinda reserve, a shy person and he always keep his feelings to himself but if you get to know him…he is willing to open up and let you in to his world. Sometimes, he talks way too much but I can’t blame him coz he said that back at home he has no one to talk to. He said that he hasn’t had any conversation with anyone for a month now and he hasn’t been going out as well. Later I found out that baby boy tondol almost killed himself three weeks ago. He said that he already had enough. He is unemployed for two months now, no work, no money and only a few friends stood by him. He said that there’s no hope for people like him. I can really relate to what he is saying or what he’s going through. I asked him what made him decide to stay…to keep on living?
“I want to travel more…there’s still so much more to see, so much more to visit, to explore, to photograph, so many people to meet and so much more to do”…he said.
This is one of the happiest moment of my life…baby boy said. The tondol beach getaway is just what I needed. I was on the brink of losing my sanity but I found myself again on this island. I found my friends on this island. I realized that I don’t wanna end my life yet and that I’m afraid to die…that suicide is not the way. I always end up having suicidal thoughts and suicidal attempts over and over again because of the thought that there is no hope anymore. I was wrong. I am wide awake now.
I spent the last money I have left on this trip and now I’m officially broke…but it was worth it! Clearly, its really hard to leave a beautiful beach like tondol.
Come to think about it…Baby boy tondol was me!
Thank you brother Dom for this trip. I really owe you one! To the rest of you guys, it was nice meeting you. I enjoyed your company and hope to see you again.
