Being a father is really hard. I know it’s the biggest responsibility that anybody could have. People expect a lot from me as a father. At first, it wasn’t easy for me to adapt in this kind of life but when I think of my children, it drives me to give only the best for them.
Having three kids really mean a lot. It makes me think on how I will raise them since my life now is far different from the life I’m used to. Before, my life has no direction, I was always with my friends, hitting the bars and partying all night. Until I realized it wasn’t good. Despite the fact that I wasn’t saving any money, I wasn’t also earning respect from myself as a father. And so, I changed my lifestyle as I became a part of the Philippines BPO industry. I’m earning more than the minimum salary. It may not be that much for three kids but
I’m sure it’s quite enough to provide their daily needs. Well, if before I could stay up all night at bars, same in my night-shift job but it’s worthy. And when I get home, I always make sure that I spend time with my kids. I don’t even mind the pressure at work, instead it challenges me to do better and better each day. This is the best thing that has ever happened to me because not only I’m having fun with my job but I’m also proving myself and the people around me that I’m a responsible father.
