As I rush around to prepare for my children’s future, my present is evaporating.

–> they say that mother is embracing selflessness. I believe i tried to play that role of a selfless mother but i wasn’t happy, it’s just not me. so i’m now all about myself, and i’m happy but there is that guilt that i’m being such selfish. 

i guess whichever side we are, it’s not easy being a mother. plus the society’s pressure on mothers can be sometimes really that stigmatizing that it’s hard to be just ourselves.

or is it just me?
