already spent all my new years money with my siblings, on what? paying all the bills for this wonderful home we have.
I can’t feign ignorance anymore. I’m no longer a child, I know the financial burden that is on my parents shoulders. I cannot be selfish, I cannot be greedy, I know that. I know how difficult life is and how hard it is to survive in it. I must help lighten the load on their strained shoulders and that is why I must strive, strive to become successful, in order for them to live the rest of their lives with no stress. The stress of putting food on the table, a roof over our heads, and clothes on our backs. As children, we lose sight of what matters most, the people we love, the people who sacrifice so much for us, the people who work so hard and deal with so much hardships for our future. We forget to love them, appreciate them, and respect them. Show some love and compassion to your parents, for they won’t always be around.
