Pencil: I’m sorry
Eraser: For what? You didn’t do anything wrong.
Pencil: I’m sorry because you get hurt because of me. Whenever I made a mistake, you’re always there to erase it. But as you make my mistakes vanish, you lose a part of yourself. You get smaller and smaller each time. …
Eraser: That’s true. But I don’t really mind. You see, I was made to do this. I was made to help you whenever you do something wrong. Even though one day, I know I’ll be gone, I’m actually happy with my job. So please, stop worrying. I hate seeing you sad.
I found this conversation between the pencil and the eraser very inspirational. Parents are like the eraser whereas their children are the pencil. They’re always there for their children, cleaning up their mistakes. Sometimes along the way, they get hurt, and become smaller / older, and eventually pass away. Though their children will eventually find someone new (spouse), but parents are still happy with what they do for their children, and will always hate seeing their precious ones worrying, or sad.
All my life, I’ve been the pencil. And it pains me to see the eraser that is my parents getting smaller and older each day. For I know that one day, all that I’m left with would be eraser shavings and memories of what I used to have.
Take care of your parents. Love them with your heart and tell them how much you love them.. ♥♥♥♥
Beautiful Singapore. I want to go see this place one day.

The best thing to do when being single, is to create a loving relationship with yourself before deciding to commit yourself with somebody else. When you’re ready to find that special someone make sure that they’re serious about being in a committed relationship. It takes time, and patience to be with the one you’re truly destined to be with forever!
How others see you is not important… how you see yourself means everything
