Liars are people who tell lies and I am sure you hate them. Who does not, right? We always wanted everyone to be true especially our family.

Our parents are the first people whom we literally see when we were babies. They are the ones who first care and make us feel and show what unconditional love is.

Parents have a big role in our lives. One of their roles is to foster learning and support their children to be physically, mentally, and emotionally okay. Besides, they are the people who first teach us MORALS and VALUES such as respect, compassion, forgiveness, generosity, patience, as well as honesty. Indeed, our parents are our first-ever teachers of everything.

We always believe in our parents' words since we were young. That is why it did not bother us to think twice or questioned their answers whether it is true or not. We were very amazed every time they told us stories and answered our questions confidently that made us trust all their answers without hesitations.

BUT, did you know that our parents are the best liars in our family?

We oftentimes believe everything they say that we forget that they are not perfect and they are also humans who also feel tiredness, stress, depression, and exhaustion.

How's your day?

How's your work?

Have you eaten your breakfast/lunch/dinner?

Are you hungry?

Are you tired?

We rarely ask these questions to them. And when we asked these questions, they answered"Yes, It's good or I'm okay" while smiling which gives us the impression that they are totally strong and fine. And if I am not mistaken, we rarely hear them complaining about their problems for they choose to hide it from us and just take the pain alone. We did not mind their answers if it is real or not for we are very confident that they are telling the truth for that is always what we here since then.

BUT the fact is, they are telling lies . . . . .

Our parents might show their strong sides and sometimes act as if all their words are true but we forget that our parents are the same as the other liars out there. They lie about their feelings every time we ask them like when we lie in front of our crushes. They pretended and act okay in front of us like when we pretended okay in front of ours partners. They act strongly when we are around. They even did not show their tears when they are in pain.

BUT their difference is that they lie to give us peace of mind;

they lie for us not to worry;

they lie for us to smile; and

they lie for us to enjoy our lives without thinking about them.

This is just ONE OF THE SACRIFICES of our parents that we fail to notice and appreciate. They choose to be liars for our own sake.

Most of the time, they choose to cheer us up and sometimes got angry just to hide their true feeling (hurt doubled) when they see us in pain, experience heartbreaks, failures, or did something wrong because they do not want to add to the burden we have inside.

Truly, our parents are one of a kind and worth keeping and loving. Our "Thank You" and "I Love You" are not enough to pay them back for all their sacrifices but these words surely make them smile and happy for seeing us so grateful for all the things they do is enough for them.

While I am writing this, tears are falling. For I just realized many things. I wrote this to have a topic to write about. Besides, I just heard this concept somewhere and just wanted to share my knowledge and opinion about it but it made me sad for I just realized how my parents lied many times just for us not to think about their feelings and struggles when they worked too hard just for us to eat three times a day and finish schooling.

I am going to end this because it tearing my heart into pieces while reading it many times. BUT I hope you also realize how your parents hide their true feelings and lied just for you to be happy and help you achieve where you are right now without thinking about their struggles and pains in past.

Have a nice day! 😊

Nako, subra. Naintindihan ko lng na sinungaling sila nung grade 5 ako. Nung wala kami bigas tapos nakahiram sila sa ninang ko. Sinaing nila yun kahit kunti lang tapos binigay nila saming magkakapatid tapos sinabinkamindaw una kumain kasi di pa daw sila gutom. Syempre mga bata pa kami nun, edi kumain kamin nung pinapatulog na kami, nakatulog ako sa saglit tas nauhaw ako, pumunta akong kusina at dun ko nakita sila papa at mama ko na kumakain ng gulay na langka at walang kanin. Naiiyak si mama ko nun. Di na ko tumuloy sa kusina kasi nag-uusap sila kung saan sila makakakuha ng bigas ulit. 😭

Yong para sa pamilya nila nagagawa nilang mag sinungaling kasi yon ang tingin nila na tamang gawin. Yong tapos di pa natin napapansin na pagod na pagod na pala sila kasi naka focus tayo sa ibang bagay tapos nallilimutan ng kumustahan ang inay πŸ˜’

I broke my parents' hearts after I self-inflicted. They must have questioned themselves if they were good parents to me and my sister. I was too selfish of not thinking about their mental health but still they never leave me alone. They were there the whole time.

Then after a month or so when things got lighter and I have finally recovered, I learned that Papa cried to his peers while sharing what I did and Mama cried to her co-teachers too when she shared about me.

I caused a lot of pain to them that's why in every call or chat, I learned to say I love you every time.

Sorry, ang drama. Naiyak na ako.

Every time we think how they hide their true feelings and knew about it na sa iba nila sinasabi yung sakit na nararamdaman nila nakakaiyak talaga kaya naiintindihan kita madam. I'm also trying to say I love you thru chat kay nanay ko tas kay tatay pag lasing πŸ˜…

Wag muna uulitin yung ginawa mo madam. Pag need mo kausap dito lang kami :)

To be honest, I'm extra emotional right now because of how the family is dealing right now. I can't stand to see anyone from my family in pain. I can't, I can't handle the emotional stress.
