Call home to mom frequently.

Postby kazi » Mon Mar 29, 2010 12:36 pm

Being out of Nepal for almost half of my adult life, and being in a hostel in my childhood, I do not seem to miss home all that much. Or, maybe its just a guy thing. But I always miss my mom. Only the other day we were talking on Skype and she said that she found a pretty butterfly in the cupboard and she closed the glass door and imprisoned it so that she could enjoy a few moments with the butterfly. I felt a pang, which in spite of my expressiveness, I can find no words to express the feeling. I could feel the loneliness my mom was probably feeling but not saying it. I felt I was letting down my mom. Anyway, call mom..

We pretty much share the same feeling. I have been away from home since my 4th grade. This is the reason why I am so close to my friends and always want them around. However I did not get much time to know everything about everyone in the house. It sometimes makes me sad :-(

But, I always have this awesome feeling whenever I talk to my mother. Its different. :-) . She is the best thing that ever happened to me!! Though I am always away from home, I am emotionally attach to her.

So, call home to mom frequently and see the difference.

A close friend of mine says she has been thinking about the butterfly and mom. Very powerful post, kazi.

You are one of few that can empathize as well as sympathize with me, @Ganesha. Thank you for that. You might have noticed that I ended the post abruptly.. perhaps because it came from deep inside. And that is usually what happens to our deepest feelings because we are trained to hide our vulnerability. And yet, I am glad it peeked out a bit.

We need more reactions from fellow aawartaners on this just to find out if they too feel the same with moms. Is it a general feeling or is it just a feeling coveted by a few? We also need to explore what kind of energy you get from calling dad and thus try to find out a difference between the two, however subtle.

That's interesting and we should speak up. That said, may I just put in a small note that the whole thing is not about me, or us who are living abroad. Its about our moms and family and near and dear ones who are back home. The point is that we have an obligation to keep in touch.

It is one of the first things I tell anyone away from home to do when I find in their emails that they are not happy.
