Would you follow your heart kahit na it means your love story would be "you and me against the world?", meaning your whole clan would deny you being a member of the family.. would it be worth it??
This exact thing happened to me and my partner. And it turned out good
My girlfriend's family is affluent and influential. They didn't like me, and they cut ties with her when she chose to stay with me.
Of course, we had a lot to prove. And we managed. She proved that she could stand on her own. I proved that I can be a better man and will care for her no matter what. A few months later, her family was the one who reached out to us. They saw my efforts and welcomed me into their family.
Now four years later, my girlfriend and I are happier than ever before. Her parents have even asked me to address them as Daddy and Mommy now. We keep in touch with them and stay in their house during the holidays.
I'm happy that I chose to follow my heart, and that my girlfriend chose to as well. And that we were sincere and chose to make things work. We fought for our love and well, we succeeded
