Hello blogger friends, so sorry for not showing up for the past few weeks and for missing my post for my weekly memes. I've been so busy since the last 2 weeks of April up to date, only now that I've got a chance to post for my Couple's Corner entry. Well for these weeks topic "Being a Daughter", seems a tough task for me, cos' I really don't know what to say about me being a daughter. Wayback while me and Joey was still in Cebu, we had a one-on-one talk about life. And told him everything I've been through while I'm still on my younger years with my parents and cried my heart out when I received a text message from my papa. I won't deny to everyone here that I'm not a perfect daughter/ child to my parents. For some reasons that what I am now, was just a result of my childhood encounters with my parents (speaking of child psychology). I wasn't really that close to my parents, especially when telling secrets or problems, I just keep it on myself, b'cos I was born to be independent as what they've taught me. And much more comfy with my peers and other people than with them. But that doesn't mean I don't loved them, it's just that I'm not comfortable and another reason is I'm "shy". But I'm much more open with mama than papa. One moment in my life that made me realized with these untowards feelings for my parents. Me and Joey was in Cebu for our review, and one ordinary day, a lecturer came for the daily review. We have in our review our daily motivations which was given by our lecturers, he asked us if we've been a good child to our parents then silence came in. He paused for a while and ask the same question, still no one answered, yet he knows what are our answers, and noise is in the air again. He told us his story that he was the same child as we are before and had the same reasons with us. He was also "shy", in the sense that he was a guy and kakaloka naman for him to say I Love You to his dad while he was vocal with his mom. He was leaving far from his parents and they only communicate through texting and calling. But one day his dad got sick then he called his mom and told her to lend the phone to his dad to talk to him. And at that moment he told his dad I Love you for the first time, then there was silence, then he heard I Love You too son. He told us how happy he was hearing that words from his dad and can't believed that he was able to say that without the feeling of shyness in him. He told us at that very moment if we weren't been telling ILY to our parents, we must tell them then, and not wait for a moment that it will be too late for us to tell them that we loved them.
Back to me and Joey, he saw me crying while reading the text message and came near and read it too. He told me that maybe it's time for me to forgive my papa and give him a chance to become a good father to me. Joey was crying while telling me that I'm more luckier to have my papa around while he had lost his father while he was still 7 years old. Then I replied to my papa saying that I'm no more angry with him, maybe I was just not that showy or vocal with my feelings towards him. And also told him that I'm thankful to God for giving me him and mama as my parents and for giving me a chance to experience this life. And if given an option to chose my parents, it would still be them that I want to, cos' I wouldn't be me without them and that I wouldn't have a chance to meet my siblings and friends now if not with them.
So now, I never fail to make them feel loved and appreciated, though sometimes I'm not that showy. I'm praying to God to give them good health and more chances to be with us. And a time for us their children to pay back what they've done to us for us to be given a good life, for sending us in good schools. Somehow I've already make them proud by graduating in my course and for passing my Nurse Licensure Exam. And that I'm looking forward to work in a good hospital for me to practice my profession.
