To begin with


I am sort of at peace now.  Yeah.  Sort of. One step at a time.

I have been taught when I was still a fragile child that children should never interfere with the grown-ups’ affairs.  I would agree, that is, if you are still under 18.  Nevertheless, being of the legal age is a mere categorization.  I don’t think it would really matter.  My education outside of my immediate family taught me ‘radical’ values that would often conflict with that of my parents.  Having said that, I could remember my younger self addressing a congregation in my church about the youth and family and I could still see the squirming faces of the elders.  I was wondering then if they could not just understand what I was saying about or they totally disagree with my contentions.  Well, they let me speak in behalf of the youth of that generation.  And they got our sentiments.
That’s why I was the ‘black sheep’ of the family.  Really?  I would rather call myself misunderstood.  Because they never understood me and would seemingly never understand where I was coming from.  But I have never failed to understand them and their absurd principles.  I compromised in the name of reverence and love.
I am not bitter.  All of these made me a stronger person that I am now.  I may not be expressive in what I think or feel (precisely because of my upbringing) but I know where I stand.
