While having our lunch a while ago,my dad told me that he will be retiring soon thus he ask me what am I planning to do...Im not a child aymore thus I have to be responsible enough coz they're counting on me.It seems that when he retires I will be taking over his responsiblity,coz he will not be able to provide and support as anymore.The fact that Im on the right age.What do you think? Am Ireally responsible to provide and support my family when that time comes?

Hi! I feel for you because I know the feeling! Its such a hard decision and really scary to take on the responsibility of others noh? Hey, by the way, with responsibility do you mean being the breadwinner of the family or literally being the next in line for whatever work your father is doing? anyways, Ive been pressured all my life and all the pressure is coming from me. My family is not pressuring me and ordering me to do this and that but I kinda wished they did so I would at least know what I needed to do. But they just let me be on my own then they'll teach me the ropes when I graduate. Garsh, I only have 2 years. 2 more years and all the headaches and pains will be upon my shoulders. Im just not ready! Enough of me, on to you now. I think you are on the right age and that you are ready. Why do I say that? I say you're ready, in fact you're already ready right now, because you're asking for others' opinion. If you're not ready like me, you wouldnt even dare ask anyone about it because you dont want to address the problem. The fact that you are asking others you're just looking for assurance that your readiness is in the right place. Ang lalim noh?LOL Goodluck!Kaya mo yan, ahja!^_^

take time until you're ready. i think they are not forcing you anyway if you are not ready. just be yourself and count on them always.

the question is what do you think about it, are you ready to take over when the time comes? it is hard for us to tell you whether or not you are really responsible to support your family when that time comes? Do you think you are? thats what will count.

Well I think I am when that time comes.It's just that I really never expect it.I only thought that I will be there to help him support our family but not totally to be the breadwinner.
