was looking at friends' pictures in FB, where they were having the grandest time with their brothers/sisters, when i suddenly felt nostalgic for my own brothers and sister. coming from a very patriarchal family, i never thought that to have straight brothers who loved me and were very protective of me would mean so much to me, now that im on my own, oceans away from them.

funny how we realize now as we get older how and why our family acted the way they did when we were younger and starting to discover ourselves. i know how hard it must be for them to accept that i was different, but i was one of the fortunate ones that was blessed with a loving family.

just sharing. : )
