The tide sneaks in to hug the shore, 
The sun shies away back into its horizon,
And I realize the day is saying “It’s your turn to shine.”

The Odd Case of Filial Piety

My sister got married two weeks ago. It was a beautiful ceremony, thrown in with some mixed feelings (which I’ll save for another post), but I could not help but feel so taxed from not only that one day, but the weeks leading up to it. 

In addition to playing Man of Honor duties (progressive, right?), I took on the role of tour guide for relatives visiting from abroad. From arranging itineraries to traveling down to SoCal & Nevada, the duties my sister once held were now passed down onto me. When I was younger, I looked forward to the day that I could finally do this. But after having to miss school and lagging behind on extracurricular work, my perspective on family obligations began to change.

Filial piety is embedded into Filipino culture. That same respect and downright expected loyalty is carried over to all relatives- cousins, aunts, uncles, etc. Now, don’t get me wrong- I love my relatives, but the way in which their vacation took priority over my pursuit of education and a career for myself was questionable. 

I always held this notion of 'family first'. But to what extend does this cliche take reign? It is a delicate balance between being a good family member and being good to yourself.

In my usual impulsive fashion, my mind jumped to the extremes. I thought about disappearing from my family completely up until I become successful in whatever career path I pursue, only resurfacing till I’ve ‘made it.’

But as I write this post alone at my college apartment, thinking about the mounds of work I have to do for school, I cannot help but desire for the support and care of my family network, who would undoubtedly cheer me on through the strife and struggle. They might not know how to help me with my Statistics homework, or even navigating my role as Vice Co-Chair for our Filipino organization, but they would definitely assure me that my brains and character will get me through any challenge.

So to conclude this, I will most definitely not be disappearing from my family anytime soon. But I will prioritize my education. I look at it this way: when my aunts, uncles, or cousins cannot see me during my visit to them because they have work, I understand. It is their livelihood at stake, after all.

But the same should go for me at UC Berkeley as well.  What I am doing here has a direct effect on not only my future, but my plans to give back to my family as well.
