A mother's love?
Actual phrases hurled at me by my mother-
"You read too much": age 9-26 years
"Its not good to be more close to your friends than your family": age 15-26 years
"How did you become so fat?": morning, followed by "How do you stay all day without eating rice?": same day evening
"Why are you friends with him? he doesn't seem like he believes in God": age 21 years
"There is this skin lightening cream a lady at my work used..": January of this year, after I came back tanned grey from NZ; there was also an embarrassing reference to 'Fair and Lovely cream' at some point in the months that followed
"Most freedom fighters of the '71 war were involved in *snicker* politics, your dad and uncle were studying then": this morning.
She wants to thwart everything I like/believe in/care for/am passionate about. She also thinks she is protecting me by doing this......again and again and again.
But then thats what mothers are for I guess.
