Speaking

If they have some worries or something not happy, my mum would have a video call with me. If they have something they will call me and talk to me. I am a good listener and they very trust me. My mum and I are like friends. She always tell me something inside to me. Her feelings, her mind, her worries. She talks to me, but she doesn’t share her feelings with my sister. Our character is different, but she is more sensitive than me so my mother always shares her feelings with me. If my mother feels happy, I would feel happy. I always worry about her because my mother is also sensitive. But, I like her so I do want her feel happy.

When we together we always feel happy, but she is always like that. All of us know her feeling, but the love my parents feel is equal. My mother doesn’t always talk a lot to me when my sister and my mother stay together. Every day my sister and my father will go out to walk in night. I don’t know how she thinks this, but these years I can feel this because sometimes she talks about these things such as, my mother know what snacks or things I like, but she doesn’t know hers.
