How am I holding up in the darkest time of life?

How am I holding up in the darkest time of life?

There are a lot of people who said they can’t believe what I am going through my life now based on how I look, speak, and act. Yes, I am trying very, very hard to make it as normal as I can.

How am I holding up in the darkest time of life?

So how am I holding up in the darkest time of my life? I only focus on my purpose. At this moment of my life, my purpose is giving my husband the best care I can. Making sure he is comfortable, warm, clean, and protect his dignity.

How am I holding up in the darkest time of life?

I had been the most spoiled woman on earth. Before my husband was sick, I have never filled my own gas tank. He had given me the best care a man can give a women in the last decade, so I am very grateful that I have the chance to take care of him.

How am I holding up in the darkest time of life?

He is the person who let me experience the unconditional love, not even my parents. He always says he is the luckiest man because he has a wife like me. But the last few years, I kept telling him, I am the luckiest woman to marry him. He gave me a family which I never had. I am loved, cared for and respected.

How am I holding up in the darkest time of life?

I am still trying to put makeup on, to dress comfortably. Because I don’t want him to feel I am giving up on myself, or on us. It is not the end of the world yet, because we are still together, holding hands and smiling at each other.

What my husband’s cancer taught me

What my husband’s cancer taught me

It has been about a year since my husband was diagnosed with cancer. We are still in the deep battle and the doctor is running out of solutions.

What my husband’s cancer taught me

Cancer is the awakening point for everybody. And below are what my husband’s cancer taught me.

What my husband’s cancer taught me

1. Cancer is not just a deadly life crash, it is also an eye opening opportunity.

Don’t just focus on the sad process, think about the new changes it has brought to us, and to the people we love. Because my husband can’t eat any meat, it forces us to become vegetarian. I was surprised to notice that I am losing weight without trying. And our family members are eating more healthy too. Also, everybody is keeping up with regular checkups with their doctors.

2. Crying is not because you are too weak, it is because you have been brave too long.

My harsh childhood and tough early years made me a tough woman, which means I have trouble to cry. Because I believe crying is the sign of weakness. But now I know, every few weeks, I need to cry, sometimes even in public, to let the stress out so I can move on.

3. Share your story

I tried to keep this cancer news secret for a long time. Until 3 months ago I finally decided to let others outside the family know. My husband said it may help others who are in the same or similar situation. We were surprised to realize, it is not just for helping others, somehow it helped us too. It feels so much easier when everybody in our life knows what we are facing and how they can help.

4. Spend time together and life will still be there.

I finally made my mind to take a short term leave from my job so I can focus on taking care of my husband. And yes, if I am not sure if we will have a tomorrow, literally, I don’t want to miss every minute we can be together today. Job, career, dream, they all can wait and will be there in the future, but at this moment, nothing is more important than my man. So, as of this week, I decided to only post 2 times per week, on Mondays and Wednesdays. If I have to cut down on those later, I will do that too. But I will plan to keep Instagram going so make sure to follow me and catch up with what is happening. Thanks so much for all your constant support and understanding. It means so much to me and my family!
