Stop Fighting!

I was so ready for work but damn I need to wash the dishes from last night. I thought it was already taken care of by my eldest daughter or my niece when they went home last night but nope they did not. I wasn’t able to take good care of it last night because I was too tired and I felt like just a slight blown of the wind I will be knock out in no time. So right after Faith is done with her Kumon, I hit the bed right away.

I was so confident that Mj doesn’t have school and she won’t go out since she already went out yesterday for their P.E. practice, I was positive that somebody will watch after my youngest daughter. I know that Faith is already 10 years old and somehow can take good care of herself at home but I can’t let her since she have easy access in our computer and TV. I don’t want her to spend her day just in front of these two equipment, I am telling you, it would make her very hyper, the worst is it would make her imagination explore. I can’t let her watch or use the computer without us around, you know how kids can be curious of some “things

I was about to prepare for work but Mj woke up all so sudden and said she have school and blah blah blah. I was so surprised and I was so mad, she just blurted out without explaining anything. I lose my temper, I gone mad and I was shouting already. I felt like a volcano ready to explode but Faith woke up and crying, she told me the reason why she woke up. Faith was awakened by my loud voice, she went back to the bedroom but I didn’t stop yelling at her sister. I thought she went back to sleep but to my surprised I found her crying while saying this word “stop fighting!”

I approached her and explained why I was so mad, she then answered that she could not help to think that I will disown her sister. With that her being said, I took a breath, let myself calm for a minute, and then went back to the living room where Mj is seated.

Understanding, sometimes we may think it is easy but the process is hard. You have undergo commotion, arguments even negotiation for us to be able to know the causes and the circumstances ahead. We may like it or not but we have to come up with a deal that will be fair to everyone involved. We may not be able to understand it at first but what matters most is that, we were able to decide, it may not be the best but it is agreed upon for both parties.
