A Sister's Concern...

When I was back home, I was able to chat with my brothers. I only have 2 siblings, Florante who's a year younger than me, and Alex who's 2 years older than me.

Florante is the one who passed the Nursing Board Exam recently and already have his own family. Now being a Registered Nurse, he was able to find a job at a hospital in GenSan. He's got bigger plans like going abroad to better provide for his family. I hope he can make that dream come true.

I haven't talked a lot about my older brother, Alex, here in my blog. It's because we're really not that close. Even when I went home, we really didn't have a long chat. There are a lot of things that we don't agree about. We fight most of the time since we were young. So we'd rather be distant with each other than be together and argue.

During one of our short encounters, I learned that he's applying for a job as a policeman. Like the usual, I had some comments that he didn't like. The comments are not to make him feel bad. I was just concerned about his health condition. He's still undergoing hypertension treatments. Aside from that, he's got a dislocated joint on his knee which also needed treatment. He was limping during the time we talked. He said he was doing tedious exercises to prepare himself for the physical exams and that it was just muscle pain that he's feeling. I told him that he maybe needed one for joint pain relief. I was just annoyed because he doesn't listen at all. My cousins and my Mom already gave him pieces of advice but it seems like he already made up his mind. I hope he won't be able to make it, though. I don't want him to get hurt, honestly.

I pity my brother because he doesn't really know what he wanted in his life. I think he's just doing this to make something out of himself. To prove to everyone and to my Mom that he can be somebody. He must have been tired of dealing with our Mom. I want him to succeed but not by being a policeman. He will just get hurt if he passed. I hope he could find some other job that won't risk his life.

I understand the concerns u have for ur brother. He probably wants this as he desires to be one. That choice we cannot choose for him. The only thing you can do now is to pray that God will lead him into a direction that won't risk his health and pray also for the restoration of his good health. Encourage him more by loving words and more compassion since he does not listen, he will probably respond more with actions.
