Just how many times would you like opportunity knocks on your door?
You had been given a lot of breaks from people who loves and cares for you. There was a time that you were entrusted not only financial aspect but of taking charge of a family while the breadwinner is working in an outlying place just to augment the needs of her loved ones. You were given all the authority as to how to manage the all-aspects of these people while the main source of income has to leave behind to support all the material needs of her loved ones?
You did not made use of this once-in-a-lifetime chance. You spoiled it just that. Your children go to school for free-of-charge. Not only that. All expenses paid for your family in exchange of taking charge of her family whose children were in growing up years yet. But what have you done? Every time this earner send you money intended for monthly expenses which included all electric bills, water bill, house bill, foods and other needs inside the house, you always seem to manage to schedule an out-town-trips leaving nothing to the people behind. Instead of taking care of the household chores, obtaining all the needs of the house, you ignored all those responsibilities. You never pay attention whatsoever obligation you were obligated to do so. It was depressing, indeed. We can’t do anything for that matter for you were that stubborn and listened to no one. Not even your mother.
Of course, all’s well that ends well, as a saying goes. The earner has decided to kick you out taking all the power from you. Sequestered all what is due you. You felt the pain. You felt the sudden change has robbed you of your rights. Rights? Just when did the issue on (human) rights raised? You shouted inequality. Injustice. What? Where on earth did you managed to think of that way? Where did you get the idea that you were not given the chance to explain yourself? Unfounded? Was it not enough that the people you were supposed to took care of has been hospitalized due to lack of food intakes? Was it not enough that people you were in-charged has gone wild? Wild that they attended school no more? Was it not enough that you had not paid all the bills which was included in the budget you were supposed to manage? Was it not enough that you enjoyed your out-of-town trips with your happy-go-lucky friends? Was it not enough that you had supported your current boyfriend on almost all his needs?
You will not admit it, I knew and who will? No one has ever claimed responsibility of his wrongful doings on anybody’s face unless he’s facing prosecutors in court.
That was then and I witnessed all that though I didn’t give a damn cause I always reminded myself that it was not, in any way my concern. But somehow I felt guilt.
Now that you are again using the people around you and make accuses if you can’t get what you wanted, it is high time for me to speak out. I must be concerned for you are not just my neighbor, a mere friend nor a mere acquaintance. You are my sibling. Every blood and vein that runs through yours also runs mine.
So enough for this. If you don’t want to help yourself, then don’t drag others to do the same. At least don’t ruin the lives of others who have dreams to enjoy life through hard work. Stop using people around you. I think too, this stupidity should be put to an end. You had been given enough chance not once, twice or thrice but all your life and all throughout those times, all of us have been here, supportive as ever but what have you done?
Now, think this over. How you gonna go on with your life without your family, without your siblings, without the people who were once very concerned on you. Stop fooling around. You are not getting any younger. Assess how you handled life. Put it right. No one will do it for you.
