What did you learn about yourself in the last year?
I had learned a lot in life for the past years, but last year put a remark. I officially became a mother and being a good and responsible mother takes a lot of effort and learning. Before getting pregnant, I was hesitant about myself being a mother. No. 1 reason? I’m not very capable and reliable when it comes to household chores. So how can I perform and attend to my daughter’s needs when I can’t even deal with the household well? But then, I said to myself “kung yung iba nga nakaya, siguro kaya ko din”.
I got pregnant. One of my work colleagues asked me, “Are you scared?” I said answered her honestly “yes, and I’m afraid too”. She consoled me by telling me “don’t worry Mitch, you’ll pick-up, take it from me, I even said the same thing to my mother”.
Until this day I still remember those words that she said.
So what did I learn about myself last year?
Mitch, you are doing good, you definitely can be a mother, just keep on learning…
At your lowest point, whom do you turn to when you think there’s no one else left around but you?
