Mum, I Used to Hate You

I once asked myself whether I had ever experienced anything… so unforgettable that it was carved deeply into my bones.

Then I thought carefully about it.

Actually, my life was pretty average and rather peaceful.

It was probably because I was still young.

But upon thinking even more seriously, it seems like I’ve ever really hated one person.

My mum.

A long chapter, but it felt very complete. Really touching, I teared up. This short story delivers a message that many children and even adults should be aware of. And that is to be filial and grateful to your parents. Sometimes we tend to forget about our parent's hardships when we're so focused on ourselves and we only start regretting when the only people who loved us unconditionally are gone. Take the time to love and appreciate them while you can, they've done so much.

Really recommend to take this short story to read.

Brings about a person's life and the way they treat the people closest to them. Truly pokes at and provokes a reader's emotions and feelings and have you question your own ways of life and whether you're really treating your own parents well enough or whether you're a filial child. Brought tears to my eyes the moment I read finished the short story.

It has you realise that there are feelings you will only start to understand only when the person is not... more>> with you anymore... You will start to yearn for the person to be back by your side within the emptiness that had built up in yourself.

Do beware, read this story with a few tissues by your side :) <<less
