A RESILIENT LADY - BUT SHE LEFT (LOH #101)

It's been one year and some months we were separated, the distance between us is something that I never thought would happen, at least not yet. She was a friend and a sister, always looking out for me even when I was not looking out for her. She was so persistent and determined, never taking no as an answer, she loves trying even when she knows she might not make it, she was a fighter.

Let's talk about a resilient woman, it can be your friend, family member, co-worker, etc. What is her life challenge and what did she do to overcome the trial she faced?



A RESILIENT LADY - BUT SHE LEFT


I first got to meet her when we both moved to the same classroom back then in school, she was so dark in complexion and that was the first thing that caught my attention, she was also an extrovert, always talking to everyone she came across with and I just love that about her. We became friends because we sat at the same place in class and as time went by, we became very close and that was how we became friends more like sisters.

She was the second child of her parents but unfortunately for her, her dad passed away when she was still very young, so she had to stay with just her mother and her three siblings and it happened that they were all girls and this made the family of her father disregard them. In her father's culture, they were regarded as liabilities and this became a challenge for them because they had little to take care of themselves, they had to depend on their mother who was a government primary school teacher. The expenses was very high for only the mother to handle and most times they run into debt and this made my friend very determined to make something useful out of herself so she can help her mother and sisters.

After school then she went to train so she could be a makeup artist and also a designer and decorator. After 6 months of training, she graduated as one of the best artists for that batch of trainees. She started making money and assisting her family, everything was going well for them until one day when she fell ill. At first we all thought it was just normal, she was treated for some time but it seems to be getting worse, it's already 1 year and she was still sick and every time they went to the hospital, they discovered another disease.

Just last year, we lost her to the cold hands of death and that was how we got separated till tomorrow ūüė≠ūüė≠, she left a gap in our hearts that is very hard to forget about her. I never for once thought we will be apart from each other at such an early age. She taught me so many things even on her sick bed, it was just so hard to shed a tears when she was around, she will never let you do that.

She died at the age of 21, she was a really young lady but she played the role of a supportive bread winner at such a young age and she did that with a positive attitude, you will never know what she is going through when you see her because she was always putting on a smiling face. She did all she could to make her sisters and her mother happy and even her friends. She was a very responsible, caring and a supportive lady, as long as you need her help for something she always try to help even though she can't shoulder all of them.

Despite the challenges she and her family faced with their extended family, she was able to prove them wrong and she showed them that women are also assets and not just liabilities. She did all this by showing it to them practically by learning a skill and doing very well at it and this helped her and her family to be financially stable.

This is my entry for the LOH contest week #101 and the questions were asked by @tibaire and I will love to invite @merit.ahama and @jachy to join in the contest.

Ha pasado un a√Īo y algunos meses que estuvimos separados, la distancia entre nosotros es algo que nunca pens√© que suceder√≠a, al menos no todav√≠a. Era una amiga y una hermana, siempre cuid√°ndome, incluso cuando yo no la estaba cuidando a ella. Era tan persistente y determinada, nunca aceptaba un no como respuesta, le encanta intentarlo incluso cuando sabe que no lo lograr√°, era una luchadora.

Hablemos de una mujer resiliente, puede ser tu amiga, familiar, compa√Īera de trabajo, etc. ¬ŅCu√°l es su reto de vida y qu√© hizo para superar la prueba que enfrent√≥?



UNA SE√ĎORA RESILIENTE - PERO ELLA SE FUE


La conocí por primera vez cuando ambos nos mudamos al mismo salón de clases en ese entonces en la escuela, ella era de tez muy oscura y eso fue lo primero que me llamó la atención, también era extrovertida, siempre hablaba con todos los que se cruzaba con y me encanta eso de ella. Nos hicimos amigas porque nos sentábamos en el mismo lugar en clase y con el pasar del tiempo nos hicimos muy amigas y así nos hicimos amigas más como hermanas.

Ella era la segunda hija de sus padres pero desafortunadamente para ella, su pap√° falleci√≥ cuando ella a√ļn era muy peque√Īa, por lo que tuvo que quedarse solo con su madre y sus tres hermanos y sucedi√≥ que todos eran ni√Īas y esto hizo que la familia de su padre los desprecia. En la cultura de su padre, eran considerados como pasivos y esto se convirti√≥ en un desaf√≠o para ellos porque ten√≠an poco de qu√© cuidarse, ten√≠an que depender de su madre, que era maestra de escuela primaria del gobierno. Los gastos eran muy altos para que solo los manejara la madre y la mayor√≠a de las veces se endeudan y esto hizo que mi amiga estuviera muy decidida a hacer algo √ļtil de s√≠ misma para poder ayudar a su madre y hermanas.

Despu√©s de la escuela, se fue a entrenar para poder ser maquilladora y tambi√©n dise√Īadora y decoradora. Despu√©s de 6 meses de entrenamiento, se gradu√≥ como una de las mejores artistas de ese lote de aprendices. Empez√≥ a ganar dinero y ayudar a su familia, todo les iba bien hasta que un d√≠a enferm√≥. Al principio todos pensamos que era normal, estuvo en tratamiento por un tiempo pero parece estar empeorando, ya tiene 1 a√Īo y segu√≠a enferma y cada vez que iban al hospital le descubr√≠an otra enfermedad.

Apenas el a√Īo pasado, la perdimos por las fr√≠as manos de la muerte y as√≠ fue como nos separamos hasta ma√Īana ūüė≠ūüė≠, dej√≥ un vac√≠o en nuestros corazones que es muy dif√≠cil olvidarla. Nunca pens√© por una vez que estar√≠amos separados el uno del otro a una edad tan temprana. Ella me ense√Ī√≥ tantas cosas incluso en su cama de enfermo, era tan dif√≠cil derramar l√°grimas cuando ella estaba cerca, nunca te dejar√≠a hacer eso.

Muri√≥ a la edad de 21 a√Īos, era una se√Īorita muy joven pero hizo el papel de sost√©n de la familia solidaria a una edad tan joven y lo hizo con una actitud positiva, nunca sabr√°s por lo que est√° pasando cuando veas ella porque siempre estaba poniendo una cara sonriente. Hizo todo lo que pudo para hacer felices a sus hermanas y a su madre e incluso a sus amigos. Era una mujer muy responsable, cari√Īosa y comprensiva, siempre que necesitas su ayuda para algo, ella siempre trata de ayudar aunque no pueda asumirlos a todos.

A pesar de los desafíos que ella y su familia enfrentaron con su familia extendida, pudo demostrar que estaban equivocados y les mostró que las mujeres también son activos y no solo pasivos. Hizo todo esto mostrándoselo prácticamente aprendiendo una habilidad y haciéndolo muy bien, y esto ayudó a que ella y su familia tuvieran estabilidad financiera.

Esta es mi entrada para la semana #101 del concurso LOH y las preguntas fueron hechas por @tibaire y me encantaría invitar a @merit.ahama y @jachy a unirse al concurso.
