Confessions of a Woman to her Mom | Looking Back | Drizzle & Dazzle
When you look into your mother’s eyes, you know that is the purest love you can find on earth...Mitch Albom
Dear Mom, Words cannot express the gratitude and love I have for you. You gave me everything and you are the reason today I am what I am. You sacrificed your own feelings, desires, and needs and want in order to build my life. It’s just because of you I received the best education and now have a good job that pays me a decent amount. I travel every few months, go out shopping and enjoy life with my friends and colleagues. I always wanted to unload my feelings that I have experienced in my 27 years on this wonderful world with you. When I look at you I realise that I am looking at the purest form of love; as such I am nervous that some of my confessions may hurt your sentiments and make you sad. However, I feel that the time has finally come to acknowledge few of the things which I have kept hidden from you so far owing to your unshakeable beliefs in some of the dos and don’ts of life. After much deliberation and thought, I believe that the time has finally come to pour my heart in front of you.
1. I have dated a few men in my life I grew up in a world of globalization, internet, social media and smartphones and it would be a folly to think that I would marry the first eligible bachelor that I meet. I know it would come as a bolt from the blue but it is important to know and understand that yes I have dated few men in my life and have had my own share of heartbreaks. Each of heartbreak has been an emotionally shattering experience but I must admit that each of experience helped me become mentally stronger and helped me gain insights and clarity into what I should expect and give in a relationship.
2. I enjoy my drink every now and then I know you belong to a generation where drinking even by male members of the family was prescribed. Under these circumstances, you would consider it unthinkable and morally reprehensive to know that every now and then enjoy few drinks when I go out with my friends. However, please understand that I drink responsibly and know where to draw the line.
3. I did crave for some freedom and your trust I care for my freedom and hope and pray that you will take it in the right spirit. I feel that it is perfectly OK for me to return late at night and you should not start fearing the worst if I break the 8 PM deadline or fail to pick up your calls occasionally. All is that you need to trust me.
4. I took medical help to cure my clinical depression Yes, I did visit the psychologist to take help to deal with my hurtful feelings that were caused due to a downfall in my carrier and my failed relationships. I couldn’t bear the courage to give you sleepless nights.
Everything happens for a reason and you would be happy to know that each of these experiences has taught me about various aspects of life and how joy and sorrow are two sides of the same coin.
