One day, Jenny read a novel called “when the coffee got cold” in an old coffee shop. The novel relates you are able to return back to the time of your choice. No matter what you do, you can’t change what had happened. Your time in the past starts when your coffee has been poured and ends once the coffee has gone cold.
Jenny is thinking, under this condition, who does she want to talk to before the coffee gets cold?
Jenny thinks what if the time machine takes her to the future. The future of 5 years later. What will Vivian (her daughter) talk to her?
Time travel forward to 5 years later (Part 2 of the story)
Jenny and Vivian are inside the coffee shop, the soft light, and the calm music make them feel relax. The beautiful lyric from the old song swirling around:
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence.
Jenny: Vivian, did you still hate me? On that day, you said you hate me.
Vivian: Did I say this? I was throwing my inner child at that time.
Mom, whatever you did to me are the gifts. They were gifts for helping me grow. I believed whatever you did to me was purely from love. And not all the things you did to me were suitable for my needs, sometimes they carried pressure and even hurt me. I believe if you know your expectations on me would hurt me so much, you would never do this to me.
Mom, I’m sorry I chose to care for my feeling only and neglect you had gone through a hard time to support the whole family alone. I’m sorry to judge you for the damaged relationship with dad and regard myself as a victim. Please forgive me I was not able to meet all your expectations based on your standards.
Mom, thank you for bringing me in this world
You know, my life is mine
I've got to love myself
I've got to live a meaningful life in my way
I've got to responsible for my needs
I'm no longer regard myself as a victim.
Your relationship with dad gives back to you.
I'll be here with you
I can only use my way to support you.
I am not able to support you by fulfilling your expectations on me.
I've got my value system
Whether you agree or disagree with my thinking.
I'm still me
I will listen to your opinion
And I might not follow
I would learn how to get along with you with a different opinion
Mom, we are two different individuals.
I am responsible for my life
I'll be happy from now on.
I promise I will plant my happiness to repay you
Mom, I love you. I always love you, and I will love you forever.
Thank you, Mom.
