The unbearable pressure | Short story 2019 | Lisa Maurie

I was waiting for my friend at one station. Whilst waiting for him, I saw this grandmother sitting at the bus stop, in the state of torn clothes, messy hair, no slippers, with an umbrella. She was alone, sitting there looking at the sky. It reminds me of my parents.

We get older, they get older too.

While thinking about my parents, suddenly, I had these thoughts. Things were not like what I expected this year. I was so stressed with the environment of my family. Shouting everywhere, here and there. Messed up my mind. Irritated, agitated. I found no peace in yelling with one another. None of the things get better. I felt so burden.

Then, one day I set my mind, this too shall pass. Other than that, I never understand why parents bringing up their stories about children to others to be heard. Name it, on whatever occasion they are attending, they always bringing up stories about their children either success or failure. I can't understand. It was so stressful.

Then, I get this pressure out of nowhere all upon my mind. I tried to kept it positive. Truthfully, I don't really like other people who know about me too much. I am an introvert, and when other people know about me, I felt discouraged. I just wanted to be left alone, please don't bother me.

Day by day pass, my mind was messed. I always sneaky get out from my home, and goes to another cafe to get some good time alone. And there's one person who came to me, an old couple, asking why I am alone, I thought no one will come to that cafe. I was being respectful for that couple, so I told the story about me and my family and everything.

And they told me, despite everything, we should respect them even though it is not like what we wanted to. They are our parents and they are the ones who gave us food and help us in any situation. We feel burden sometimes, the pressure was so unbearable. But, to think again, who had the most pressure among us? It's our parents.

I became mute for a while, before it was a late-night, I go back to my home, and checking on everything. I had been a bad son. I was stress but that doesn't mean I had to treat my parent like that. So, I choose to change, I'm not good, but I try my best.
