Embracing my own timeline

“Kailan ka mag-aasawa?” “Hindi pa ba kayo mag-aanak?” o “Kailan niyo dadagdagan iyan?” “Hindi ka pa ba yumayaman sa career mo?” “Wala ka pa bang kotse/bahay?” Huwag ma-pressure sa mga tanong! Embrace your own timeline and do not let societal expectations define you. Your career, relationships, and goals are your own making. Every step is yours to take, every story is yours to tell. Cheers to rewriting norms and embracing our individual paths! #PCWMondayAffirmation
