Just Do It

You can’t deny the fact that there are times when offering help is really awkward. Like when my aunt gets home one night and finds the kitchen not-her-standard clean.

I usually check the kitchen to make sure everything’s in clatter but for that night, I am so engrossed in what I’m writing that I haven’t notice her cleaning up already. I would’ve offered my help and tell her to just leave it up to me to clean but no words came out of my mouth.

I do intend to check the kitchen a little later, when I’m done with what I’m writing, but my aunt doesn’t like procrastinating so I figured my excuse won’t do anything. She continues cleaning, and I start to feel awkward because I can hear the kitchen utensils going in the drawers and it sounds like she’s not happy about it. She then started making tsk tsk sounds I just feel more awkward because I know I should get up from my seat now and help but still, I keep my ground.

It is minutes later when she called me and said that I should have been looking after the kitchen every afternoon that I really get up from my seat. I still doesn’t hell her though. I ran away to the bathroom and pretend to wash up just to wait for her to finish.

I honestly don’t know what’s wrong with me. I usually have the initiative to do these things but that night something holds me back from helping even though I know what I should do. I guess I have thought that I’d be scolded if I get near her and so I didn’t. In the end, I feel terribly bad and guilty about it. I keep on telling myself to let it go, make up for it the following days and never let it happen again.
