To everyone who insulted me since I am not working in a traditional office-based job, please lend me your ears even just for now. I work night and day just to make ends meet, I have accepted multiple home-based clients, I was able to put up my start-up IT business with my husband, and yet you’re still looking for my mistakes.
What have I done wrong?
What do you expect from me to reject me this way?
Did I hurt anyone?
OR simply because you can’t take the risks I’ve done to be where I am right now?
To my long-time friends, thank you for deeply understanding my situation right now, even if it takes hundred times to convince me to go on a date night with you when I’m closing deals with clients. Yet, you’re all here to love and accept me unconditionally, even if you already have a hundred reasons to leave me. I know my shortcomings, and I promise to make it all up to you as soon as I meet both of my personal and career priorities.
Please know that all of you are not my last priority, it simply means that we understand each other and I really appreciate your effort to support me.
To my loving and selfless soon-to-be husband, thank you for believing to my goals, especially for everything I want to do in my life without any objections, for opening my eyes to opportunities that I unintentionally overlook. My dear love, every time you pick me up when I’m trying to ignore the broken pieces of me, it always reminds me that I always have someone that I can count on to, someone that is more than willing to love and protect me even during my worst days.
To my beloved naysayers everywhere I go and whatever I do, I really admire all of you to have the guts to speak against me even without knowing my story. You don’t know what I have been through, my sacrifices I have made and other kind of relationships that I chose to leave because it has become toxic anymore.
Before you point out your fingers at me, I am now giving you the chance to reflect on your life and all the wrongdoings you have committed. Seriously, you have a long way to go before you reach where I am today, because no matter what you do, no matter how much you hate, you will never be with me, you deserve to be there at my back and watch me as I grow and continuously loving myself.
The more you hate me, the more it shows how sad your life really is. Don’t spend too much time looking for my mistakes, learn to improve yourselves and please stop hating me; it won’t bring you any good at all.
Dad, I want you to know that I am really sorry for everything I have done to make you suffer and be disappointed. I know I am not in the position where you really want me to be but please know that I am a work-in-progress, stop judging me that I’m only a housewife right now.
You don’t know how much it hurts me knowing that my father hates me and questioning my priorities in life. Open your eyes and soften your heart on me, I know you really love me that much to the point that you keep on nagging me, it’s still me, your first born with an exciting life waiting to explore.
Work at home soon-to-be-a bride.
