I always envied the life your parents gave you. So many times did I think you and your siblings were truly blessed. You had a loving and caring mother. You had a father who was a responsible family man and was a good provider. You went to a Catholic school wherein during those times only few were able to because of its expensive tuition fees.
Your family business was going fine and in fact was gaining more clients which made your life more comfortable as far as financial stability was concerned. Aside from that, you also had a devoted and religious family.
Every Sunday, I always saw you and your whole family went to church to hear mass together. You really had content and a happy family. There was no space for trouble times in your family then. All I witnessed was a satisfied and peaceful family.
Having a neighbor like the kind of family you had has been a fascination and has molded me to dream a family like yours. I was daydreaming every time I saw your whole family giggling and in good spirits, that someday I will have a family like yours.
But as the saying goes, “sailing is not always smooth”, bad luck intervened in your once happy and content family. Your father has been diagnosed with colon cancer and it was on its advanced stage. This unfortunate situation brought demoralization on your father and all of a sudden has stopped what has been started by him. His focused was for him to be cured. But as we all know, cancer was not and until now not curable, the reason why family’s savings was almost drained. It was a horrible and a frightful stage for each and everyone in the family.
At this stage, you and your siblings has just started putting up a family of your own. And it was at this stage that you conceived your first baby. The ideal and the perfect family you once admired and adored have shattered and you can do nothing. You didn’t know what to do. You didn’t know how to be of support. You didn’t know how to comfort your mother and your father.
Until one day, your father did not make it and passed away which made the situation worst, your mother’s health became deteriorated too. Soon enough, she did not make it and passed away too. Due to these incidents, you suffered too much depression which costs you so much pressure.
