"Life is not easy, not just for me but to anyone living and breathing"
Why do I feel so down? Why do I feel so sad? Why do I feel alone? Why do I feel so angry with little things?  Why am I like this? I feel so tired!
These are the questions I asked myself few years back. .
Let me tell you something about myself. .
I was an Overseas Filipino Worker in HongKong.I worked as a Domestic Helper who starts my day around 5 am and ends at 9 pm. Working as Domestic Helper is not easy, but I always tell myself that I'm doing this for our future.
Every Sunday I was able to meet my mom who is also working there,I was able to meet new friends and I was able to eat and buy things that I can't buy before .I was able to travel and visit other places like Macau, Shenzhen and Shanghai.

I'm too happy to buy new things ,eat the food I like with my own hard earned money.
I know what are my goals in life and I'm not afraid to follow my dreams.

But that was the past. 
After 7 years
