Words of wisdom from my old man

"You must believe there is a hikmah behind everything that happens. When you got ill, it wasn't just a test for you, it was also a test for everybody else around you. Some are just not strong enough to get through it and it's normal. Remember though, it's not the end of the world for you."

Yes, dad.

"You know, you've been through a lot worse. The way I see it, your main concern now should be your health. Everything else is secondary. I don't want you to get stressed out by these kind of things, you understand? Do you think you can manage that?"

I don't know, dad. I guess so.

"When you stress your mind, you stress your body, which is not what you need right now. Just try not to think about it. OK?"

OK dad.
