Love knows no weight.
Love is said to know no boundaries and for Myka Ella Marie, her love for her boyfriend, Bojo Jose, knows no physical appearance and weight as well.
Myka met Bojo when she joined Fatima Auto Club (FAC). Their love story did not start there yet because she was in a relationship with another guy then. What they developed that time was friendship.
She said that, back then, Bojo had a bad boy attitude and even acts like a boss. During their Christmas party, some guys made a pass on her when she went to the CR. She told Bojo and some of his friends about this. They were enraged by her story, especially Bojo.
“Galit na galit sila nun e lalo na sya (Bojo), e di pa naman kami close. makikipag-suntukan pa, pa-hero masyado hahahaha.” she said.
It was then that she realized that she liked having guy friends. She had people to joke around with, and she also had people who will protect her.
Among this group of friends, she became more comfortable with Jojo. Some people even thought that they were together. They became even more close to each when she broke up with her boyfriend because they spent more time together.
“He’s my one call away,” she said.
But their friendship wasn’t always smooth sailing. They had an argument that didn’t last lost because she felt like that argument wasn’t worth all the things that they had together.
“Naging okay rin naman kami after a week. Bigla kong naisip lahat ng efforts nya sakin. Sunduin ako sa bahay, hintayin matapos class ko para mahatid ako sa bahay, puntahan ako pag nasiraan ang sasakyan at lalo na pag-umiiyak dahil sa mga ka-MU haha at marami pang iba. Nagstart na kong i-appreciate lahat ng ginagawa nya para sakin kaya naging sweet na rin ako sa kanya nun.”
Then, they became together. They didn’t have the usual monthsaries nor anniversaries, but they never forgot to express their love for each other. There were times that Bojo doubts her love for him because of his insecurities, but she was quick to reassure him that his insecurities were part of what she loved about him.
She expressed all these sentiments in a long birthday and appreciation post to Bojo.
“Madalas syang nagkaka-doubt sa love ko sa kanya kesyo pangit daw sya, mataba and whatsoever. Para sakin naman, syempre kasama na yun minahal ko sa kanya. Sorry kung madalas tayong mag-away hehezz basta, nandito lang ako lagi for you. Ingatan natin sarili natin lalo na pag nagd-drive. Sobrang love na love kitaa kaya wag ka na magdoubt.” she wrote.
Her post had more than 5,000 shares online. Some people loved their story while some questioned her intent in her relationship with Bojo.
“Bago nyo ko husgahan, hindi ako mahirap. Hindi pera lang habol ko. May sasakyan rin ako. Wag kayong judgmental,” she edited her post and added these lines to address these netizens.
This is what we learn from their story: if we truly love someone, whoever that person is does not matter because we will love them no matter what.
