Let me tell you a story...
A story of a woman who was betrayed by her love...
The love for which she sacrificed...
Her family, her ambition, her desires, her personality, everything...
She became a slave to this man, cut herself off from an entity called ‘life’...
Why??

Because she was selfish...was what her husband, her love told her one fine day...

*********

She broke down...all she could see was darkness, a never ending tunnel of hopelessness...
A never ending depression...alt
She wondered aloud...
“Is this the man, for whom I defied my father...
“Is this the man whom I helped settle in his life...
“Is this the man for whom I chose a mundane subject as my career so that I live near him always...
“Is this the man whose child I gave birth to...
“Is this the man for whom I did not hesitate to take a long break from my dream, my job...
“Is this the man for whom I came so far away from my home...
“Is this the man for whom I cook food, wash laundry, and have been a maid par excellence...
“Is this the man with whom I share nothing...neither togetherness...nor love...neither passion, nor compassion...

“Is this the man whom my son loves so much as PAPA...

****

After a long time, she realised, what a fool she was...
To believe that “he ever loved her...”

...poor thing...Got the biggest shock of her life...

****
Should have known when he never stood by her...

When she was in pain, depression, loneliness...

****
Should have known when he was busy in his life, his career, his achievements...

While she was battling her exams and a complicated pregnancy all by herself...

****
SHE should have guessed...
SHE should have left then...
SHE should have taken control of her life then...

BUT SHE did not...

****
WHY?? Is the million $ question?
WHY ??

*******

Because SHE WAS and IS and WILL FOREVER BE A SELFISH MOM...
A mother for whom her little son’s smiles are more important than her own emotional and physical needs...

YES, SHE IS SELFISH

Don’t you agree??
