I would like to talk about how ignorant we (in this case how ignorant I..) can be... when we take things for granted.
Why am I saying this...
In a semi-traditional Chinese family where I was raised, the elders in the family command (or in some instances demand) respects from the younger generations. Among all elders, I would show my respect and regards to those closest to me. But sometimes, complacency get the better of me and thus, an unexpected misunderstanding occurred.
Because of my carelessness, a minor (probably grave) mistake created by me has caused unhappiness to a close relative whom i regard her as a second mother. She was there when I needed someone to talk to and often shown kindness (at times too much kindness that would lead to expectation of gratitude).
Today has brought a challenge which will either strengthen or break the bond between us. She has not answer my attempt to reach her or reply my message.
I admit that the mistake was my own and that I should have informed her before all others (as she expect this from me).
To end this, one should never take things for granted as such situations like this will happen....
I hope that she will be able forgive me for my carelessness if not...
If she does call back, I will probably get an earful from her... I'll just have to take it all in like eating a large piece of humble pie... T^T
PS: what a way to end my Sunday (-__-)
Till my next update.
