  • "I am proud of you". In my sixteen years of existence, all I want is just to hear those five words from my father. I want him to be proud of me as his daughter and I want him to be proud of what I have achieved in my life, even in my little achievements. So, I studied very hard because he want me to get a good grades and for him not to be disappointed to me. And by Gods grace I achieved to get a good grades, I even get into a honor section when I was in grade 10. Even thou I don't want to be part or a honors class I still tried, just for him to be proud of me. I faced the challenges of being part of that section, the pressure because of the expectations of the people around you and the sacrifices I had made. All of it was just for him, I even didn't think of what I want, all I think was just for him to be proud of me. But all my sacrifices, my hard works was all wasted just in my single mistake. Those five words I want to hear from my father was replaced by hurtful words that I wished I didn't heard. I just cried all the hatred and heartaches I have felt and together with my tears falling from my eyes was the thought that me and my father would never be the same again. But, despite all the things happened I still have the reason to continue my life and smile because there are still people who believes in me, supports and love me. And I realize that life isn't about pleasing everybody, so be yourself and be happy.
