Words Are Meant To Be Heard.

How was it to be silent? How was it to be unable to speak because there's something or someone stops you to express what you want to say? Is it hard? Or is it okay to you to be silent even if you feel small after all?

My teacher in Communication told me something before. She believes that words are meant to be heard for us to relieve what we feel and to express what we are facing.

"There is always time to speak and there is always time to listen. If you can't do any of these, then you don't deserve to be heard or to say anything. "

I pinned this to my mind since I was heard this quote from my teacher because I stand by her statement. I do believe that voice and words are important but there's always time for those words and voice.

Lately, I realized something. I realized that we can compare our words to a piece of music. Just like music, our words also have their message to portray. There is music that sounds terrific, and some are not. There is music that sounds like a voice of an angel but there are some that sound like a growling tiger. Just like our words, some are meaningless but some words can give us a lot of pain. Nonetheless, I do believe that we heard them for a reason.

Just recently, my grandmother became more irritable than ever. We don't know what was the reason so we chose to listen and chose the silence. We're hoping that this matter won't long but we were wrong. My grandmother is already 61 years old. She started to feel some pain around her thighs and she even can't explain why was this happening. We tried to consult a doctor but they can't understand it well so even my family doesn't know the answer for this matter. She even taking medicines that her doctor prescribed to her but she still sometimes can feel pain.

We all accepted that when we get older, we could experience this kind of pain but the thing that I didn't expect is her silence. Just the other day, my aunt called us to ask us why my grandmother called her while crying. I and my mother were so alarmed at that time because we are the ones who are with her in our house. I don't know what is her reason but I think this matter must not go silent since it's about her health.

We experienced hearing her anger. We tried to argue with her about matters in our house. We tried to converse with her about our plans in life. I can personally have a talk with her about the things she wants me to buy. But to think that she can't say what she needs to us is a mere fact that she can't live with us.

My mother, my siblings and I was living with my grandparents since my father died. We have no choice because we want to restart our lives after that incident. My mother is crying whenever she remember my father. My mother is always crying whenever she heard hurtful words from my grandparents. We have no choice but to just listen to them and follow their rules because we are just living with them. Indeed, we can't say anything against their rules but I will ensure that we will recover from these problems and pain soon.

They are not that person that you were thinking. They are kind, good, and sweet in their way. We just had some problems in terms of finances and health since we just referring to my aunt's and uncle's help now. They are the one who supports us these trying times. My mother has an unstable job but it can't support our lives with just that so we need some support from my relatives.

The only thing that I could do today is to listen to what they're saying and throwing at me. I can't do anything but face another world while I was in a bigger world. I'm used to it so I didn't enjoy my teenage life. I became seriously focus on things I want to achieve because I want to get out of what life we had right now. Yes, we can eat five or more times a day; we can buy some of the unessential things we want; we can buy some of our wants, and I believe that I could give a better life for my family if I could strive more.

As for now that I was about to enter a bigger world of learning, I promise that I will strive more for my family and my future to be aligned to my dreams. I'll listen for now but I do believe that my time will come and my words will also be heard by some people who see me like a speck of dust. Just like the music we have right now, I do believe that my voice will also be heard by many people in perfect time.

It's all about communication. Learn how to listen while they were speaking but don't forget to speak for the things you want to say while you were listening.

Naiyak ako habang nagbabasa kasi ganyan na ganyan ako noong nga kapahunan mo bata. Wala talaga akong magagawa kundi lagi silang sundin kahit minsan eh nakakasakal din, never akong nagdemand or nag reklamo sa mga gusto nila. Lahat sinusunod ko at nakikinig lang ako. Wala eh, nakikitira lang kasi kami dito At malaki talaga pasasalamat ko din naman sa pamilya ng mama ko kasi natulungan din naman kami kahit may mga salita padin kaming natatanggap na di namin gusto.

Balang araw ako naman mapapakinggan ng mga anak ko, ng pamilya ko, ng mama ko kapag tumanda na siya makulit kasi talaga kapag tumatanda na ayaw paalaga ganon, pero minsan willing to open padin naman ang mga tenga natin kapag ano din gusto nila diba? Mahirap din kasi kapag lagi nalang sila napapakinggan paano naman side natin diba? Ako laking sisi ko din na di ako nag open ng gusto ko, wala akong lakas na sabihin sakanila yung gusto kong sabihin. Kaya ikaw bata, sana wag lang laging kinig. Dapat matuto ka din magsabi sakanila kung ano totoo mong nararamdaman. πŸ₯²

Sipag at tyaga lang bata ha, ipagpatuloy mo pagsusumikap mo. Wag mo masyadong dibdibin lahat ng mga sinasabi nila kung meron mang masasakit na salita.

Got a nice read! May mga pagkakataon talaga na ayun kailangan muna nating makinig. At sa susunod tayo na ang papakinggan. Opinyon na natin ang mahalaga. Intay lang. Magiging maayos din ang lahat. Wish ko na maabot mo ang lahat ng iyong mga pangarap. At patuloy ka pang magsikap. Nakakalungkot lang na yung kamaganak pa ang nagdodown sa mga kamaganak.

I'm glad that you got a nice read, Ate Meyzee. Yes po, I believe na halos lahat po ay nararanasan din ito, nagkakaiba lang sa ugali at perspective ng kinagisnan na pamilya. And tulad nga po ng sinabi ko sa article ko, I'll just wait for my turn, and if dumating na yung time na 'yon, saka po ako babawi in a good way.

Maraming salamat po, Ate Meyzee! Hangad ko din po na matupad ang lahat ng pangarap n'yo. Ingat po! 🀍

You can make those words that they are throwing to you, your inspiration para mas mapaganda ang buhay mo bata. Sige lang, tanggapin mo lang, pasok sa kaliwang tenga labas sa kanan. Wag masyadong dibdibin kasi mas masasaktan kalang. Dito mo dapat mas lalong pagtibayin ang loob mo. At may oras para mag salita. Kaya nga sa ngsyon makinig ka nalang muna. Ang hirap din aksi ng sitwasyon nyo ee. If ako ata yan mas gugustuhin ko nalang bumukod.

Yes po, katulad nga ng sabi nyo ate, "pasok sa kaliwang tenga, laban sa kanan" pero bago lumabas, dapat alamin mo muna kung bakit to sinabi at kung ano ang maaring maging daan.

Opo, titibayan natin ang loob. Maraming salamat po kasi isa po kayo sa nagpapalakas ng loob ko, bukod sa pagsulat ng articles. Manghihina pero hindi susuko. 🀍

Listening is important as well as expressing ourselves through words. But you're right that there are right time when you will just listen and times that you need to speak for yourself. As for your situation right now, its better to just listen but don't forget to know your right and worth too. You're right for now you need to strive harder in order to get what you want in life.

Thank you so much po for digesting my article. Yes po, hindi ko po kakalimutan ang worth and right ko but susubukan ko din muna i-digest muna ang kalagayan namin para kapag maari na at kaya ko nang magsalita, mas magiging sigurado na po ako sa mga magiging kahihinatnan ng bawat magiging desisyon ko.

Again, thank you so much for digesting this article. Maraming salamat din po sa realizations. πŸ™πŸΌ
