I grew up in a household that didn’t place a lot of value in communication, as a result none of us learned how to express feelings and opinions effectively. I don’t know if it’s a Filipino thing, or maybe it’s an ‘every family’ thing. But what ever the reason, it was a habit that was evident in my family’s history. Because of that, over the years I have learned to put effective communication very high on my list of essential qualities.
Although I was hellbent on avoiding the same mistakes when it came to my own family, I still manage to struggle with it every now and then. It doesn’t happen often, but once in awhile it will happen between me and your mother. What can I say? It’s inevitable.
So I learned that sometimes it’s more effective to have someone pass on those messages for you… and who better can serve as a proxy in this circumstance than Barry White. So honey if you’re reading this. I want you to know that I love you just the way you are.
Take it away Barry….
