Showing how he is not ashamed of her mother’s job, a young adult from Bacolod proudly shared a video of her street sweeper mother, saying that her efforts and sacrifices will still be valuable for them as her job will not define her overall personality.

On March 16, Andry Valiao posted a video on his Facebook account as he accompanied his mother in cleaning the street in their barangay. In the said post, he shared his experiences of how people, including his previous partner, belittled his mother’s job, noting that she is a street sweeper.

AWARENESS MESSAGE‼️‼️

Hello to everybody! I hope everyone is doing well. Finally, I posted this up to show my thanks for my mother's efforts and sacrifices on my behalf. I'm going to repost this to make sure that everyone is AWARE that no matter what, no one should ever be ashamed, belittled , or insult your mother's efforts to support you. I changed the post's privacy setting to "only me" after knowing that someone is embarrassed by my mama’s work “STREAT CLEANER” and that I should delete my post so that no one can see our way of life or my mom’s work as a result of her carrying a "Image" in her place.

My disappointed life experiences made me realize that no matter how bad people made me look like, my mom will always be there to love me unconditionally. Even though the person i blindly loved dishonor your career for the sake of her "image".

I'm very sorry, mama. I should have taken action as soon as I became aware of the issue at hand, but I was blinded by love, and I didn't know how fortunate I am to have you as my mother. Don't let anyone, not even the important person in your life, makes fun of everything your mother sacrificed to support you.

To my mom, thank you for all the sacrifices. Always do remember that I will strive hard to repay all those sacrifices no matter what. Thank you to my mother for all of the sacrifices. Never forget that I will work extremely hard to make up for all of those sacrifices. I’m very proud and grateful for all of your sacrifices, that no one can belittle and bring you down even my own priorities recently in life. We both understand that we can't afford to pay for my education expenditures, so I am aware of the great sacrifices you have made to support me. However, you continue to find a way to support me while I face challenges in my life.

I wanted to protect you from those who would undermine your efforts and make you feel ashamed of who you are and how we live. I wasn't expecting that individuals I loved and trusted the most—those who can support us and lift us up in our trying times—would be the ones to be ashamed of you because of their "IMAGE."

I love you so much mama! I hope this will serve as AWARENESS to everyone. Don’t be ASHAMED, BE PROUD, LOVE AND PROTECT YOUR MAMA AT ALL COST! To those people na parehos sa gakakita nyo sa post ko. INDI NIYO GID PAG I ALLOW NA AMO NI PG TRATO NILA SA ATON MGA ILOY NA GA PURSIGI AND GA SAKRIPISYO PARA MAKABULIG MAKATAPOS TA SA ATON PA SKWELA, BECAUSE AMO MAN LANG NA ANG HANDUM SG ATON ILOY KAG AMAY MAGING SUCCESSFUL ANG BATA NILA SA HULIHIT, THAT’S WHY HIMUON NILA EVERYTHING TO SUPPORT THEIR CHILDREN. DON’T EVER TOLERATE THESE HUMAN BEINGS. ALL THEY CARE IS ABOUT THEMSELVES!

—————————————————————————

Just got home, I saw my mother working, cleaning the streets just to help me finish and achieve my teaching goals. Mama, I value your commitment and difficult work; Always look after your health and yourself. We can accomplish this if you just hold on, and one day I will make you proud. I'm just making jokes to make you laugh, even though I know you're tired. Contrary to what others may say about your job, In fact, you are pleased and satisfied with your offer to send me and assist me in paying for college. Continuously remember that my sister and I both love you. I wish I could assist you with street cleaning, but I will just concentrate on finishing this degree for you, ma.

“I changed the post’s privacy setting to ‘only me’ after knowing that someone embarrassed me by my mama’s work as a street cleaner and that I should delete my post so that no one can see our way of life or my mom’s work as a result of her carrying an “image” in her place,” Valiao shared.

Hence, evaluating these judgments from other people, Valiao came to the realization that he should not degrade her mother’s occupation just because society said so.

With this, he made the video available to the public to let other people know that he is proud of what his mother does for a living as she serves society with dignity.

Along with his sentiments, he expressed his sincere apology to his mother for being blind to love, as he mentioned how his past partner belittled his mother’s job, resulting in him hiding and denying her occupation to other people.

“I’m very sorry, mama. I should have taken action as soon as I became aware of the issue at hand, but I was blinded by love, and I didn’t know how fortunate I was to have you as my mother. Don’t let anyone, not even the important person in your life, make fun of everything your mother sacrificed to support you,” he said.

With this, Valiao penned a short but sweet message for his mother, highlighting her sacrifices for them and pursuing a decent job for them to have a decent life.

“To my mom, thank you for all the sacrifices. Always remember that I will strive hard to repay all those sacrifices no matter what. Thank you to my mother for all of the sacrifices. Never forget that I will work extremely hard to make up for all of those sacrifices. I’m very proud and grateful for all of your sacrifices, and no one can belittle and bring you down, even my own priorities recently in life. We both understand that we can’t afford to pay for my education expenditures, so I am aware of the great sacrifices you have made to support me. However, you continue to find a way to support me while I face challenges in my life,” he said.

Valiao also added that his post may serve as an awareness for the audience to value their parents’ sacrifices for them and not be ashamed of whatever occupation they have as long as it is decent. He also disclosed that society will always have a comment on a person’s life, but what is important is that you know the real story behind each sacrifice.

This act of Valiao became an inspiration for the audience and was also mentioned by Bacolod City Mayor Albee Benitez in his recently held press conference. “Let us not be misguided because these jobs are very important jobs that make our society move,” Mayor Benitez said.

Ini ang pahayag ni Bacolod City Mayor Albee Benitez angut sa iya nga pagdayaw sa trabaho sang mga street sweepers kag cleaners.

Sa press conference sa Bacolod City Government Center, Lunes, Septiembre 11, ginpahayag ni Benitez nga dapat obrahon nga may kadungganan ang isa ka trabaho bisan ano man ang imo posisyon sa kompania.

Dugang pa sini nga kita man ang maga-antus kon madula ang ini nga mga obra.

Pahayag pa sang alkalde nga kon kis-a indi masapakan ang mga tawo nga naga-obra sang "extraordinary jobs" kaangay sini.

"I give more value to those who are doing their jobs," pahayag pa ni Benitez.
