Who Am I? @surpassinggoogle - Untalented Contest-A Short Story of my Life...
Hello Steemians, I'm Jefrey Salmasan Espiritu born on October 14, 1985. Oldest among of my 2 siblings and 6th from the first family of my Father. I'm an Illegitimate child and Here's my story.
When I was a child we lived in a rented apartment in Bago Bantay Quezon City. I used to live with my mother Nelia and my auntie Letty. That time I didn't ask why my father Reynaldo didn't live in our house. All I know is he's in his work and his going to our house one's a week or sometimes twice a month. That time all I want is to play outside with my friends and watch cartoons in the afternoon.
I studied elementary in a Catholic School named Sto. Niño Parochial School. We students there where raised by our teachers to be a good Christian. But still on my 6th Grade I'm still a naughty child. One day my Grade 6 religion teacher tells us a story that opens up my mind at a young age. Her topic is about a second family. When my teacher said second family, a question builds up in my mind. Second family what's that? I didn't know that my question is so related in myself. My teacher told us that her story is related into one of the ten commandments in the bible. The 6th commandment of God "Thou shall not commit adultery" But still due to my naughtiness when I was at that grade I ignored the story.
One day when I was watching a drama movie in television. Again another question builds up in my mind. The child in the movie was looking for his parents Wedding Picture in their house. But he didn't see anything. Later his mother tells him that they are only a second family his and father is married into another girl but not in his mother. The child in the movie accepts the situation he had because of his love in his mother. Then that's the time that questions keeps in my mind. Why did my parents doesn't have their wedding picture? I keep silent I didn't ask my mother about that instead I continue to love her and also my father. He is still visiting our house once a week then my 2 siblings came and I'm so very happy.
Time has passed, I was in High School my father can't support us anymore. My mother doesn't have her job. She's so stressed so am I. Sometimes I'm planning to stop studying because of the our state. I just want to look for a job to help my mother but still I'm too young to have a job. Sometimes we only eat rice and soy sauce. My mother also sometimes is going crazy because of the depression she had. Our landlord wants us that time to be evicted in our house because we can't pay our house rentals anymore.
But I stand still I finished my high school and looked for a job, in order to support my family. I help my 2nd and 3rd brother to finish College. Now they both have their jobs and all of us can support each other. My mother is so very happy now even though she is the only one who raised us 3 siblings we still stand without the help of my father. Now I'm planning to study College with the help of them.
