When Mothers Cry
No matter how strong a mom is, there will be that instance where she will reach the peak of her emotions-and so tears will start falling.
Moms are one of the strongest people alive. From the moment she conceives, the morning sicknesses, the labor pains, and the giving birth. The strength required to overcome such things is beyond ordinary. That’s just the start. The sleepless nights, the unpredictable tantrums of kids, the load of household chores, the endless meetings and studies, the nerve-wracking homework of kids…well, warm-up has just begun.
Soon, kids start going to school, turn into teenagers who are slowly trying go their own ways. All these along with being a wife to a husband and an employee or a boss of a company. I sometimes ask myself where moms get the strength to go on. Where they get the inspiration to move forward. Motherhood is a tough unpaid role.
The world should understand that when moms cry:
-They are not seeking attention, but understanding.
-They are not weak, but are trying to be strong.
-They are not trying to explain and prove something, but are releasing emotions.
-They are trying hard not to be burdens, but are looking for some ways to be of help.
-They are not whining. They just feel helpless about the situation.
-They are not lost. They just want to unwind.
-They are not rebels. They just want to rest and think for a while.
-They are not becoming monsters, but are slowly being molded to become better moms.
To dads, husbands, sons, and daughters, next time you see a mom cry, be sure to understand them. You don’t need to argue with them or tell them what to do. They surely know it. They just need to release those emotions as fast as they could in order to breathe in some fresh air once again. They are ok, and they’ll be okay. Just be there and listen.
