The Sacrifices Of A Loving Mother And What You Should Do

Mother’s-Sacrifice

Yes it is true that when you love someone, you have to sacrifice. You have to invest time just to be with the one you love. You have to make sure that he is safe. You have to sacrifice your own pleasure for his comfort. You have to think of his welfare first before your own. You have to show how much you love him every day of your life.

These are the “to- dos” if you choose to love. But for mothers their sacrifices are way beyond. So what are really the sacrifices of a loving mother? Let me share to you about my own mother.

I am a mama’s boy ever since. Every time I have problem I go to her. Every time I have concern in school I go to her.  She’s my source of comfort and everything. I witnessed how she sacrificed everything just to provide all our needs. I am fully aware that she woke up early in the morning to prepare our breakfast and “baon”. When we’re short of budget I saw her left our house early in the morning to borrow money and when she came back she already had the food for us. I witnessed how she sacrificed her own savings to pay our dues in school. I saw her tired of washing our clothes and ironing them for us to look presentable. I saw her joy and sadness every time we left the house on our way to school. I missed those times that the moment I arrived from school, dinner was already served. I saw her doing things which I believe should only be done by men such as firewood gathering, cleaning the motorcycle, rice harvesting and so many more. I saw her keeping all the hardships within herself because she didn’t want us to worry about her. For my mother all these sacrifices are worth it because she chose to love us.

For sure my mother’s sacrifices are your mother’s sacrifices too. In any case there are other things my mother is doing that your mother is not doing and there are things that your mother is doing that my mother is not doing. I am her witness and you too are witness of your own mother. As a witness of all these sacrifices I guess we have to do something. And what is that something?

This something is all about paying back. This time it should be our decision to give back everything our mothers deserve. That it’s our time to sacrifice for them. Yes career is our priority now but we shouldn’t forget to look back and put them on our priorities list. While we’re away and enjoying our life, we can’t disregard the fact that our mother is missing us so much. A constant communication and update will surely do. Let’s continue to pray and show them how much we care.

Loving is sacrificing. Don’t forget to look back. Search your heart and be grateful.

God bless you!

What You Should Do When You Feel Unimportant

unimportant

For sure you will agree with me when I say that at one point in your life you feel unimportant. Unimportant in the sense that every time you’re in a group you can’t find yourself being part of them. That every time you say something their reaction is just ‘okay’ sometimes deadma. When you experience situation like this, tell me the truth, how does it feel?

You might feel hurt, disappointed, frustrated. The reality is that you can’t avoid such feeling because humans are emotional being and the hardest thing to do is how to control your emotions. And you can’t please anyone. You have no control of their reaction and response towards you. You and I have been in this type of situation and we don’t like the feeling every time we experience such. Am I getting it right?

So What You Should Do When You Feel Unimportant

Again, you have no control of others’ reactions towards you but the good news is you have full control of yourself as to how you handle them. If this happens almost all the time, I guess you need to step back and assess the situation. Don’t put all the blame on them but be honest to yourself that at some point you’re also accountable of the problem. Try to have a short break from the group just to have enough time for you to assess and make things right by coming up with possible solutions the moment you join with them again.

Another thing you can do is ask at least one of your friends whom you consider as the best one who can help you with your problem. Set a meeting with her/him or even just a virtual conversation just for you to express your disappointments and frustrations and make sure that he/she is willing to listen and help you. Be honest to every word you confess and let your emotions come out.

Don’t keep them yourself.

Aside from seeking help from your friend, you can also utilize your other time doing other things you really want to do. In other words do the things you are passionate about. You can go for a walk in the park. You can go fishing. You can go hiking. You can read and write. You play with your pets. You go for a vacation with your family. You go to retreats. You watch movies. Or you can just spend more time reflecting on your situation. In short, forget for the meantime your problem and just be happy and relax.

In order to counter the feeling of unimportance you can also watch video documentaries about people who successfully overcome the same feeling you have now. You can learn from them how they are able to do so. Read blogs on what to do when you feel unimportant. I am sure you’re not the only one having that feeling.

Most of all, I’d like to encourage you that every time you feel unimportant, just kneel down and pray. Spend more time with God. Read the Bible and study the Scriptures. Watch documentaries about the history of your faith. Research about stories of people who sacrificed their lives just to build the foundation of your faith. You can learn a lot of things from them.

Know more about God because He cares and loves you.

Yes that’s correct. Our God cares and loves you so much. Whenever you feel abandoned by your loved ones, your friends, your family, your teacher, your groupmates, your brothers and sisters in a community I’d like you to know that you were, are and will always be important in the eyes of the Lord. You are never as incomplete and as a failure as you think you are. Have faith that you have a purpose and He will reveal it to you in His perfect time.

From now on, don’t bother anymore every time you feel unimportant and irrelevant by those people whom you considered as your support and family. Why? Because God is enough. He’s the source of everything and if you’re with Him you will never ever, ever feel unimportant.

3 Tips On How To Get Out From Debt While Supporting Your Family

Why People Borrow Money?

In order to provide for our family’s needs we need to have steady income source. Some may get this from their salary while others are from business and other sidelines. However there are times that even if you have regular income, still it’s not enough especially if there are emergencies. That’s why the option of borrowing money comes in.

Different Ways of Borrowing Money

The world is changing so fast that nowadays there are lot of ways where you can borrow money. The traditional one is to borrow from your relatives and friends without any interest. The other one is through small-time money lending cooperatives or company wherein you borrow a specific amount and you will pay the principal together with the interest within a specific period of time. You can also borrow money in the bank through loans and the most common now is through the use of credit cards.

I Am Also A Borrower

Yes you read it right. I am also one of those who borrowed money from my friends and relatives especially during my senior year in college up until I started working and the most recent was my first year here in abroad. Sometimes I’m ashamed but I have to be honest about the reality. It’s hard for me because I am the breadwinner of the family that sometimes my salary is not enough to support them and my personal expenses. Fortunately those days has passed. I am now debt-free.

Why I’m Writing This Blog

I am writing this blog because I want to help those who are in debts now and are struggling to pay it. I understand what you’re feeling now since I myself had experienced it. In this blog, I will be sharing to you the exact three (3) tips I used on how I was able to get out from debt while supporting my family.

1. Acknowledge your debts but don’t let them stress you.

Most of the times, it’s hard to sleep if you have debts especially if these are large amounts. And consecutive sleepless nights will lead to insomnia and stress. Don’t let debts stress you. Accept the reality and acknowledge that you have debts to pay. You cannot escape from it. Instead of worrying about it every night and day, teach your brain to divert your focus on things which will give you happiness and temporary relief. Remind yourself always that these debts will soon be cleared and you will live debt-free forever.

2. Make a Payment Plan.

While training your mind takes charge about the psychological aspect of paying your debt, making a Payment Plan takes charge of the practical side. How do you really make it? You can do so by writing down the details as to how much is your total debt to pay and how long will you fully pay it, how much will be your monthly payment and which one you will pay first. I suggest pay first those debts with interest. If in case all of your debts have no interests, like in my case, you pay first the smallest amount so that every month at least one name will be crossed out in your list. It has psychological effect though. Once you’re done with your payment plan, make sure that you follow it as much as possible though you should still have flexibility especially when urgent needs arise.

3. Live simple.

Even if you effectively train your mind and follow your Payment Plan but your lifestyle is the exact opposite, still your goal of getting out from debt is impossible. Your way of life should align with your goal. Avoid buying your wants for the meantime. There’s a proper time for that. Spend money wisely by focusing on your needs. As much as possible minimize or avoid vices such as drinking and smoking. Avoid unnecessary meet ups and hanging out with friends. Minimize eating in expensive restaurants. Monitor your daily expenses and of course follow your prepared budget every month. Just to make it clear, I am not imposing that you should only do all these things and forget about the other ways because it still depends on your priorities. However your goal should come out of debt as soon as you can while supporting your family.

To your rich future,
