I consider my mother as my best friend whom I can freely open up myself with because of her admirable sensibility, compassion, and unconditional love.
In spite of having a boyfriend, I still consider my family as my priority as I adhere to the conservative values and practices that my family taught me.
However, I make sure that my relationship is not taken for granted by maintaining compassion and sensibility to the needs of my partner.
As I evaluate my life for the last 5 years, this is the period of love and maturity for me.
I realized that I have somehow reached a certain level of maturity, especially in decision-making and development of the sense of responsibility.
