Letter to my parents:

It's been two months since quarantine began. I know you're busy, but I want you to take a moment to read this letter that I wanted to write to you days ago, and I finally cheered myself on today.

These days I've been watching them like I haven't done it in a long time.

At first, I could notice some happiness in his eyes, I heard them saying that despite the pandemic, it was a gift to spend so many days with us. I don't know if they're still thinking the same thing today. I want to think so!

But as time has passed and we don't know how we'll live from here on out and see how this virus gets so many people, I started to see them very tired and worried. On several occasions they have said that they can no longer with everything: work, help us with school classes, house, etc. I imagine how hard and exhausting this is. To finish, I ask them every five minutes to eat and take a moment to change. It hasn't been easy for me either, at first I had a hard time understanding that it wasn't a vacation, that even though you guys were home you should keep working and I'm studying, but I'm getting used to it. I still find it hard not to be able to be with my friends, go to school, see grandparents.

I don't know if it's any use, but I wanted to tell you that I see you every day trying very hard. I know that the house is not ordered as you would like, we do not get up or sleep at exactly the same time, we have a hard time concentrating because we must all work together so that the Internet arrives well. But we're laughing together, screaming, fighting, apologizing, crying, and isn't that how it's a family?

I don't want a perfect family because it doesn't exist, I don't want perfect dads or that everything's okay all of a sudden, because I fully understand that things aren't going well around the world today. I love them the way they are and I know they're doing the best they can, as I try to do too.

I ask you to please take care of yourself, have room for you, do not stop doing what you like. I know I'm the most important thing to you, but so are you. Teach me to love me by watching each one love and care. Tell me what you need, I will do my best to understand and help you, as you do with me.

We are a family, we are a team and we hold back with each other, although I do not understand well your concerns I want you to know that I trust God and trust you, and I will always know that you do the best you can.

I love you so much!
Your child
