Yes, that’s what I scored for my PSLE. I remember my teachers telling me I could have and should have done better and that I didn’t live up to my potential. I remember being fearful to tell my parents, returning home to see the disappointment in my mother’s face and to hear the same words from her... I wondered what she expected of me or why I just wasn’t enough, whereas she never put any pressure on my older sister.
The 12yo me put on a brave front in front of my friends and family but that night and several nights after, I turned on the shower at full blast to drown my tears and the sounds of my sobs. (Something that I still do till now, I’d never cry openly or show any sign of weakness)
I didn’t get into the secondary school of my first choice. I rebelled throughout my teenage years, idled, had no interest in my studies, gave up on sports and got into all kinds of trouble. Long story short, I finally saw the light much later that this world is big enough for each and everyone of us and that these scores don’t define us. Today, I run 2 companies in the PR and Media industry and can’t remember the last time anyone asked me about my grades!

As the mother of 2 kids now, I shudder to imagine my kids feeling like I did - “not enough” for their schools or parents. 😭 I believe in letting them explore their talents and interests and that while education is important, there’s so much #lifebeyondgrades! I want them to know that attitude and effort is sufficient and all I ever want from them is to try their best and that’s enough for me, for them and for the world.

A week has passed and the days have faded into nights of nonstop feeding, eating and juggling life with 2! Kept this dress to wear again on delivery day, glad that it still fits after 3 yrs! 🤣

While I can’t wait to meet and hold your little sibling, I’m also feeling scared. What If I don’t love her as much as I love you? Because really, is it even possible to love like that again? 😰

💕Supporting the freedom to love. Can’t be there for @pinkdotsg this year (I don’t think my belly will hold up) but I’m sure everyone will have an awesome time. Love is love, you don’t have to understand it, just don’t hate on it.
