Daily Prompt: VIP: Who’s the most important person in your life — and how would your day-to-day existence be different without them?
My mother. She’s the one. At this point of my life, she’s the one who matters most. I’m here in this big city opt for work and I’ve been here for more than three years now yet I was only able to visit my hometown for just five days. I’m not really alone here. I live with my relatives and got my own circle of friends — the real ones. I got my life here as well for work has always been here now.
Yet, though how settled and independent I am for I can surely take care of myself now, I still can’t take it off my heart that I still miss my mother. I really miss her so much especially at times I’m all alone and the world seems to have closed its doors on me.
I got to have a lot of friends. You name it, I got it. I got them almost everywhere. Wherever I go around the whole Metro Manila, I got friends. I meet them sometimes. I even catch time with them. Yet friends are friends. They come and they go. They stay and they leave. Some are worthwhile and some are so-so. Some truly understands you and pick you up at times you’re down while some are what we call fair-weather friends. They stay when you’re upbeat but they leave when you’re no longer of use for them.
Regarding relationships, I don’t know. I’m not searching for one for I’m all happy for what I have now. I’m not looking for someone to be with in the future for — this is my future! I already got the past. I’m happy being Single. Oh no. I am Single and happy! That’s it. Besides, love is not just about an intimate relationship with a partner but it’s all everything that’s beautiful around us. I can make myself fall in love at anytime. I just look at one thing and I’m in love.
But my intimate love is my mother. She’s my whole life. I don’t know if I could handle it if I’ll lose her. She’s been there for me way before it all started and even now, she’s still there for me though she’s miles away. She welcomed me and took me for who I really am after all these years and after all that happened. She got a few questions yet she accepted what answer she got from me. She’s this type of person who befriends her daughter and loves as a mother. She’s my unrequited love.
