“Men are from Earth, women are from Earth. Deal with it.”
― George Carlin
One of my students is crying one morning. Her eyes are fluffy and very swollen. So after the class I called her and asked her if there is some body who hurt her. She told me her story. She said that night her parents quarreled and both were shouting at top of their voices. This girl of mine is the only child of the parents. Her mother is a business woman and own a shops on a flea market. The father is an electrician. So I am telling this because the problem doesn’t lie on financial. First of all their daughter is in the public school. Then she is the only child in the family. So where did the problem begin?
As I console her, I found out that her daddy has an affair. And the hope of the child is to make the family happily together. The irony of what happened is when the child said.
“Why is it if children fight, we are grounded if not for 24 hours, a week. Can I ground my parents?
Funny question but true.
I can’t tell her what happened to my marriage. Cause my husband abandoned my children and I. But I am quiet about it. The only thing I told her is that I understand her situation. Sometimes we cannot settle the differences and yet we are all walking on the face of the earth. Mind is very complex. And all the hindrances is inside it. I hope that we learn to settle our differences.
I accepted what my husband laid upon me. As he has another family of his own. I am happy with my children. Perhaps someday…In God’s will…
