On Being Strong and Selfless

It is really hard to stay strong, not just for yourself, but for other people, especially for people who are so dear to you, like your daughter/son. Even when you want to break down at times and tell the whole world that you are undergoing “something” or that something is wrong, still you have to manage to stay “intact” be strong and maintain a facade to let others see that you are still doing fine, despite what you are going through.

Some may call it being “martyr” but those who understand these stuffs know that there are several things that should be considered before making any major decisions that will not just affect you, but your family and most importantly, your children. Maybe it’s the fact that you don’t want others to judge you because of what happened to you and that as much as possible, you still want to live a “normal” life, though it’s for a “show”.

If only you’re still “single” and that you don’t have to worry about anybody else, maybe decision-making would be much easier…so so easy. But sacrifices have to be made. A lot of sacrifices that is…All you can do in silence because you don’t want pity from others and you don’t want to worry your family of what’s happening with your very own life.

If only I am braver…
