Why is it so easy for us humans to mistake silence for indifference? Or at least to this mother.
I have been acting too harsh for months now. And I am blaming hormonal imbalance as the culprit. I stay inside our room for hours. I only go down when I need to pee. And often, I would be irritated because the house is in a mess. I would demand the boys to clean the house pronto!
I also felt the silence of my boys whenever I am around. They seldom joke around. They whisper instead of talking loud. I felt the silence.
And I accused them of being so uncaring and indifferent. Why can’t they understand my pain?
