About three weeks, I turned my back to my husband. He was somehow obliging some things I could not easily deliver given the two toddlers I always look after. Not to mention, I have three school boys to take care of and a house to manage. So instead of answering back, I went out and bought pandesal. It was an opportunity for me to walk, catch some fresh air, and brush off any negative thoughts.
Husband was quite in the mood to pick a fight. He messaged me, accusing me that I was running away from any confrontation. I messaged back that “I am not running. There is no reason to argue with you. I don’t want us to fight; thus I left.”
After a few hours, I got a message from him again.
