I am writing this post with a very heavy heart.
I just lost; no let me correct that someone has stolen from me P6500.00 yesterday, and it happened in the office.
That money was supposed to be deposited in the bank already but unfortunately that did not happened.
I am sure that I did not misplaced it because the envelop containing the money was still in the place where I hid it. And aside from the hundreds and thousands bills it contains some loose change amounting to P250.oo. The theft left the P250.00. I cannot fathom the logic behind leaving the loose change. Did he/she who took my money thought that it will make me feel better it he/she leave me with something. It would have been much better if he/she got all of it. Naawa pa siya sa akin?
Aside from losing the money, I feel bad that someone had betrayed me. We are just like a family here in the office and all of us knew the hardships each one has to face. Now, it got me to thinking , who should I trust among these people.If he/she needed the money, I could have loan it to him/her .
Money is not that big of an issue to me because as in my father's words "pera lang yan,". P6500.00 is really not that hard to earn but the real issue is knowing these people around me and realizing that among these people who are already your friends is the one that wronged you.
Oh well, I've read somewhere, I'm not sure if it is in one of the blogs I've visited that , it is okay to be depressed for forty-eight hours, and that if it goes beyond that time period is already hazardous to your health. I have less than twenty hours to sulk about this issue. After that time frame, I'm going to move on and look for the happy return to this very sad event. I believe that I'll get back an even double amount of money for the money I've lost.
Lance Armstrong said that there are only two kinds of day: a good day and a great day. What made yesterday a good day was the love I feel from my father. Calling him to inform him of the lost money, his initial reaction was he's willing to give me two thousand pesos to help me pay whatever I have to pay. My father no longer works and just depends on his small pension, yet he never said anything about me being careless and all, all he was thinking was how he's going to help me pay for the lost money. Of course, I decline the offer because I have savings naman and his money is budgeted for his monthly expense. But I am moved by his understanding and love.
Sorry for the sad post, I just need to release the sorrow I feel.
