Get well with your family
27 Feb 07
I am from a BIG Filipino family, and yes, it is so difficult to get everyone's approval all the time. Before I met my fiance, I had to live on the judgement of every member of the family. Each one had his or her yes and no about certain things I wanted to do. It's very complicated because we are 8 children and since all of us are adults now, everyone has his and her own set of principles and beliefs about almost everything. When my fiance came into my life, so many things have changed. He made me realize that I definitely cannot please everybody. He was right, because now, my brothers and sisters have learned to give respect to my decisions. If they didn't agree to them, I didn't have to insist, as long as I am responsible for whatever I do.
