A Woman Lived Her Life Thinking that they were Well-Off; What She Realized after all these Years is Inspiring

  • A Facebook user named Angelica Altera made a heartwarming post on her account on the day of his brother’s birthday.
  • She revealed that she thought her family was blessed because of their lifestyle.
  • Upon growing up, she found out the main reason why her family could afford every luxury they could think of.

When someone has money, he can easily open his wallet whenever he sees something that caught his interest. Be it a smart phone of the latest model, newly released gadget and all the luxurious items that money can buy.

Sure, there are a lot of people who are born with a silver spoon which explains their wealth, but not every rich person got their wealth from inheritance. Most of them reached the top because of their perseverance, and most especially, their hard work.

A good example for this is Angelica Altera who shared a huge realization that made an impact to her life.

Upon realizing the reality, she posted a story on her Facebook account about how the truth changed her perspective.

Read Altera’s full story:

Akala ko dati may pera kami kasi si Kuya nag-aaral sa San Beda tapos lagi niya ko dinadala sa mall, gustong gusto ko pumupunta sa toy kingdom tapos magtuturo ako ng laruan. Pag-uwi naman namin, magagalit Ate kong inggetera azar kasi bat daw ako may laruan tapos siya wala kaya si Kuya bibilhan rin siya.”

Altera revealed that she once thought they were from a wealthy family because they could afford a lot of luxuries that ordinary families couldn’t have.

However, upon growing up, a certain realization hit her.

Nung medyo lumalaki na ko nalaman ko si Kuya nagw-work sa iba’t ibang fastfood chain habang nag-aaral para may pambaon o kaya pambili ng project kasi gipit kami. Minsan din sakanya nagpapagawa ung mga kaklase niya ng assignment tapos babayaran na lang siya.”

Shockingly, her older brother was doing all sorts of work just to be able to help lessen the expenses in their family. He would even accept his classmates offer to do their home works in return for a good amount of money.

Nung grumaduate siya, siya pa ung nagpakain samin sa Jollibee hahaha. Dahil kay Kuya, nakapag tapos si Kuya Aj na panget tsaka si Ate pati na rin ako nung highschool ako hanggang ngayon na nasa Feu na ko. Nagawa niya kami pag-aralin kahit na nagmamasteral siya. Mula sa uniform, allowance, gastusin sa mga projects, gamit sa school, gamit sa kaartehan, damit/ sapatos, internet, kahit minsan di kailangan siya bumibili tsaka nagbibigay samin. Dahil kay Kuya, meron kami lahat ng kailangan at gusto namin.”

Mula gamit sa ulo hanggang paa. Lahat ng luho ko sa buhay (pati debut), siya nagbibigay lalo na pag christmas. Sobrang bait niya kasi kahit wala siya natatanggap samin hindi siya nagrereklamo. Kahit na sinasabi niya na nagtitipid siya, konting pangungulit ko lang bibilhin na niya tapos sasabihin niya ‘peste ka talaga.’

Dahil kay Kuya, hindi na ako baduy. HAHAHAHA. Nung mga panahong hindi pa ko nap-puberty hits at nasa kausuhan pa ako ng pormahang never give up shirt, pants lang, at slippers, magkasama kaming nasa mall papasok sa parang hotel ata yun na may event. Nakapasok na si Kuya tapos biglang ako di daw pwede, nun ko lang nakita si Kuya na nagalit ng ganon tapos inaway niya ung guard ano daw problema sakin. Nahiya ako kaya sabi ko, ‘Kuya sa iba na lang tayo daan.’ Tapos sabi niya ‘Hindi, daanan naman to eh.’ Inaway niya ng bongga talaga hanggang sa pinapasok na ko. Simula nun, binibili na niya ko ng magagandang damit. Pag namimili kami siya na rin pumipili para sakin kasi lagi nya sinasabi, ‘Ano ba yan beh ang chaka wag yan. Eto try mo.’ Kuya na instant stylist ko pa.“

Altera also shared that her brother didn’t complain even once and showed love and generosity towards his family. Whenever they are in need or if they want something, he would give it to them in an instant, even if he said he was trying to save money.

Dahil kay Kuya, nakapunta kami kung saan saan. Dahil nga di naman kami mayaman, di ako naghahangad na magpunta sa kung san mang lupalot. Gusto ko lang noon makapunta sa Star City o EK okay na sakin. Habang tumatagal nakakapagtravel si Kuya dahil sa work niya tapos hanggang sa lumipas ilang years, kami naman ang tnravel niya.“

Dahil kay Kuya, nagkaron ako ng chance makakita ng artista sa personal at makapag papicture. Hindi lang once, hindi lang twice. Pag nakikita niya kong masaya pag tapos sasabihin niya, “Oh ano masaya kana? Talo mo na mga nambubully sayo. Peste ka.” Minsan pa iniiwan niya kami ng pinsan ko sa backstage tapos dun katabi lang namin ung mga artista na kausap niya. Pero kahit na mukang masaya ung trabaho niya. Lagi ko nakikita si Kuya na stressed, wala laging tulog tapos sobrang busy niya. Pero kahit na ganon gusto ko maging katulad niya.”

At dahil sakanya, malinaw na sakin gusto kong trabaho in the future. Bukod kay Anne Curtis, idol ko si Kuya. 

To the best brother in the world,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Altera also said that due to his brother’s generosity and hard work, they were able to buy things that they couldn’t have afforded back in the day. They were able to travel to places they didn’t know they would lay a foot on.

All thanks to her ever loving brother!

Meanwhile, the netizens shared how envious they were as most of them didn’t have an older brother, while the others simply couldn’t compare their sibling to Altera’s brother. Altera is indeed lucky, don’t you agree?
