Do you know that I feel somewhat guilty whenever I buy something pricey for myself? It’s like I feel I am not doing my obligation for the family. I feel that way whenever I indulge in something other than food.

Years ago, we didn’t have that much. I must admit that we really struggled financially, especially during the time someone’s sick in the family. I can’t even begin to imagine how I managed to juggle all those expenses. I think I will never forget those times I was drowning in a sea of debts. I had help from my grandma, my aunts, and some friends. But the emotional burden I was carrying all those years…

I guess the guilt comes from that.
