A Collapsing Pillar and A Tiny Flame

When someone marries, they build a home. The father acts as the pillar and the mother acts as the light. Together they protect and guide what they have. They protect and guide their son and daughters. Together they must live bounded by their vow to be true to each other in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health, and to love and honor each other for all the days in their lives.

Until a something bad struck their home. It came without a warning. The pillar was damaged. He was overpowered by temptation. The pillar stood still like nothing happened. But he cannot see nor feel that what he protected before have been hurt badly.

The pillar became something disconnected to the home it is attached to. It seems to be something different than before. Something you may not know but you can feel. And so the whole house became shaky. One moment it is standing strong, another and doubts about the house surviving arises.

When a house is unstable, of course everything is unstable. The light that shines and shimmers for everyone is now blinking. It might go off anytime but it still keeps on blinking. Not because it is what it's meant to do but because of its love for its home.

When a house collapses, where will the children go? Where can they seek shelter?
It's too early to think of it. The pillar may be damaged but it is still there. The sweetest memories of a happy home and the saddest moments of a collapsing house. What more can happen?

Now the real story begins..

You love your father dearly. You remember the good times you had. But now he comes home a different person. He has loved another. A devil in disguise. A poison to your happy home.

You might feel sad but the most hurt would be your mother. She might still smile but you can sense her pain and agony. Stay by her side and comfort her. Do not keep everything to yourself. You two can withstand it together. Remember together we stand, divided we fall?

Gather as a whole and try to fix the collapsing pillar. It may be dangerous but it must be done. Although you must be ready for the circumstances. Say what you want to say and don't just shut up. It's your life. It's your family. Forget about everything else but not them. You are your father's precious gem and your mother's shining star as an old song says.

You are not alone. No matter what happens, people around you have your back. They'll catch you when you fall. They'll comfort you when you cry. They'll celebrate with you when you win.

No matter how difficult life can be, no matter how struggling it may seem, life goes on. Be thankful that your life has a certain spice than to have a plain life without any taste.

No one can tell you what to do. Only you can act and face your problems. The past doesn't matter anymore. It's the future you can change. So stop sitting around laughing as if nothing happened. Get on your feet and face everything. What is a fire if it cannot light up enough to give light and transform darkness into mere shadows?

You can do it. Only you can do it.
