People Respect and Admire You

#25 of Blog Every Day in May is to share

Something Someone Told You About Yourself That You'll Never Forget

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         One of the things I am proud to have is my good memory, especially for past events  {and I pray to have it for a long time}. I have a good archive of all the worse things people have said to me in the course of my young life. However, for this prompt I want to share how one day talking to my mother she said:

“You can’t even imagine how many people respect and admire you, here in town.”

That’s a phrase I remember because for as long as I know I’ve always questioned my worth in this life. I never saw my value on earth. Also, my fears has always induced me to be a good girl and though I’ve always tried to rebel, my rebellion has never being outside the four walls of my bedroom. And even when I disobeyed my mother about my curfew, I would come home one or two hours later feeling so guilty I would be extra good for the next couple of weeks.

And as a classic good girl, I got married before I moved out of my mother’s home to go live in my husband’s home. I guess many people respect and admire the way my life has evolved and is still evolving.

I must admit, I am glad and proud about the way my life is evolving.
