Motherhood has definitely been the most humbling experience in my life. It just turns your world upside down… over and over again. It gets you places where you can prove that you are a Superhuman: you can live on no sleep and barely any food for days… right after you have withstood the immense pain of giving birth. But it may also take some of us to dark places where we act like Under-human
If everyone had the same priority – spending family time together – this challenge wouldn’t be so difficult to solve. See, customs and traditions are very important to us humans – they give us a feeling of belonging to a certain cultural/religious group and contribute to our sense of identity. Essential as they may be, they shouldn’t dominate our most fundamental need – to love and share the love with others.
