Jamie Bautista pens bittersweet goodbye message to ex-partner Anthony Leodones: ‘Thank you for all the memories’


Content creator Jamie Bautista opened up about her recent split with longtime boyfriend and fellow content creator Anthony Leodones after nine years of being together.

“Anthony, [w]e’ve been together for 9 years at ayun ‘yung mga pinaka masayang taon ng buhay ko. We were 16 and 18 nung nagkakilala tayo, 18 ka naman at 20 ako nung mapagdesisyunan natin na magpakasal,” she began in her Facebook post.

She continued, “Sobrang bilis at wala tayong pakialam kung ano ‘yung mangyayare sa’tin, basta ang alam lang natin mahal na mahal natin ang isa’t isa at gusto na natin laging magkasama dahil LDR din tayo non. Kaya kahit ayaw pa pumayag ng mga magulang natin inilaban natin pareho.”

Jamie reminisced about the good and bad memories they shared, as well as the lessons they learned along their journey as a couple.

“Mag kasama tayo sa saya, sa lungkot, sa hirap, at sa ngayon, guminhawa kahit papaano yung buhay natin. Marami tayong pagsubok na pinagdaanan, marami tayong inilaban, marami tayong natutunan sa bawat isa, marami tayong natutunan sa buhay,” she shared.

Bautista went on to share about one of such lessons which involved their individual need to “grow apart”, saying, “Hindi pala pwede na puro mahal lang natin ‘yung isa’t isa[,] kailangan pala nagg-grow din tayo pareho.”

“Ang daming nangyare be.. akala ko kaya ko parin ipaglaban kahit anong pangit ang mangyare sa relasyon natin, akala ko kaya ko. Sinubukan ko naman ‘di ba? Sinubukan naman natin? Pero ‘di ko na namamalayan na unti unti na rin pala akong nauubos, unti unti tayong nauubos,” Jamie expressed.

“Parang unti unti hindi ko na nakikilala yung sarili ko, aminado ako na nag-iba ‘yung pakikitungo ko sayo, nag-iba ‘yung ugali ko sayo at alam kong nasasaktan narin kita.”

Jamie went on to share how she felt about her partner and their relationship which was ultimately affected by the past controversy that hounded after Anthony revealed that he cheated on Jamie back in 2017 but had only openly admitted it in 2021.

“Dahil sa nangyari in the past, aminado akong nabawasan talaga ‘yung pagmamahal ko sayo, hindi na kita kayang mahalin kung paano kita dapat mahalin at alam kong ang unfair non dahil nakikita ko kung paano ka bumawi sakin at paano mo pagsisihan ‘yon.

“Siguro kailangan ko muna rin talaga magheal, kelangan ko din ayusin ‘yung sarili ko para na rin sa ikakabuti ng bawat isa,” Jamie explained her decision to end their relationship.

“Gusto ko lang din sabihin na mag-ingat ka palagi, ‘wag mo pababayaan yung sarili mo,” she wrote to Anthony.

Jamie also addressed those spreading “fake news” about the reason for their breakup, clarifying that there was no third party involved.

“Gusto ko lang din iclarify, yung sa mga gumagawa po ng fake news, there’s no third party involved. Maayos po naming napag-usapan ito at parehas po naming napagdesisyunan ito,” she explained.

Jamie concluded her post with a simple yet bittersweet message to Anthony which read, “Thank you sa lahat ng memories.”
