Our parents are the ones who cared and nurtured us throughout our years. From being not able to do anything on our own until the day we almost do everything in our hands. We get too preoccupied living our life that we forget our parents. Who takes care of them after we set off our own lives?
A netizen shared her piece of mind regarding this topic.
This is happening in our lives. We take for granted the people who have been with us because we think more of ourselves.
On a facebook post, this netizen captured a photo of an elderly patient who was washing her own dishes. Even after going through an eye operation, the netizen offered a hand but the grandma insisted to wash her dishes. Upon asking why she was the one doing this, she replied in a positive tone that her kids were busy and she’s used to being alone so she’s used to it. Even on a positive tone, this is a very heartbreaking statement from a mother.
Not insisting, the netizen decided to assist her back to her room. Then, the grandmother asked for her help to call upon reaching her daughter.
The netizen couldn’t help but feel sad. She takes a photo to be a reminder for her future self. Unlike the daughter of the grandmother, she promised to never forget her parents no matter how busy life is.
Even at an old age, this mother is still very considerate of her children, she doesn’t want to be a bother to them. However, as children it is our responsibility to look out for our aging parents.
