‘Did you take your mobile?,’ asked my mother while I was busy kick-starting my bike.
‘Yes, mom,’ I replied and continued kicking.
‘What about your wallet, Id card, Train season ticket?,’ she continued mothering
‘Mom,’ replied in rather frustrated tone. My train is due is another five minutes and I am still clueless with my bike.
‘What? You should have at least started earlier, see its already late and you are yet to figure out the problem with your bike.’
She believed she was supporting me, but I felt mistrusted and was vexed by her nonstop questions. I have been travelling in train for seven years now, and I had never been late to office, even though I missed a train once or twice. I make sure I go to the office on time by whatever means.
Each time she believed she cared for me, I felt offended. If I miss the train, don’t tell me ‘I told you so,’ instead allow me to learn and adjust accordingly. If I forget my wallet or id card, let me deal with it, don’t tell me about it when I call. Yes, I start at the last minute to get the train because I enjoy being adventurous and I wish to perform so. Besides that I have never hurt anybody or even myself while in the path of my adventures.
I appreciate her loving intention, after all she is my mother. Who else will care you more than your mother. But what I anticipate is, her unconditional love and, trust which is even more important instead of being mothered in this manner.
Women needs awareness of what her men want, so spend some time with her and let her know and understand what you want. This could be helpful for every woman in supporting their opposite sex.
