The one thing you and I want to achieve in life, my dear me, is financial stability. Girl, this is not just us being materialistic but we’re being realistic here. I want to reach to that point where I do not have to worry about how much I am actually spending but still have a big fund in case of emergencies. I want financial stability because I know the day will come where my parents will no longer be able to work and I want to make sure that they are taken care of. I want to be able to provide for their needs so that the money they get from their pension can be spent on whatever they want. I want to give them a life of comfort. I want to make sure that my little brother will get a great education in a school that can mold him into an ideal character but at the same time, open his eyes to his potential and I want him to be able to do what his heart desires. I want to be able to support them.
I want to achieve financial stability because I know how hard it is for my parents whenever my brother and I get sick, most especially in the rare cases where we have to be admitted into a hospital. I just graduated college and I am no longer supported by my mother’s PhilHealth and I know just how expensive hospitals can be. I do not want them to worry about their finance. I want to be able to take them around the world and experience the things they never thought they would because at the moment, being financially stable is the only way I can think of to repay them. I want to repay them for all the grief that I have given them. I want to repay them for the love, understanding, and support that they have showered upon me. I am not an overly affectionate daughter. I rarely tell them how much ‘I love them’ because it is not something I was used to when I was young and so I know that I can show it by my actions and how my life will turn out.
I love you mom, dad, and little bro. I might be moody and temperamental but thank you for accepting me just as I am and helping God show me the right way. You have your own principles and beliefs and those played a big part in how I developed my own principles. Thank you so much.
Your pain in the ass,

I decided to write my answers here because I wanted to share my thoughts to anyone who’ll stumble upon this. This is also a way for me to try to get myself to write everyday.
