I understood what it’s like to be locked in the house for the past 10 years.
I have experienced what it’s like not to be able to eat peacefully and relax in quiet.
I know what it means to be physically and mentally exhausted. I wanted to sleep 20 hours at once, but was awakened by our child’s cry after only three. I fell asleep twice in my shoes.
I understand that it’s more exhausting than spending 10 hours at work, dealing with finances.
I understand how frustrating it is when you don’t have the support from your husband that you should.
I understand how it feels to be locked in the house all day, while life goes on outside. You didn’t meet with friends or do any sports.
I understand how hurt you were when my mother instructed you on how to take care of our children. No one knows a child better than their own mother.
Being a mother is to take on one of the greatest commitments, one that no one appreciates. After all, you don’t get paid for it.
I’m writing this letter to tell you that I miss you and that I have something very important to tell you:
“You’re very brave. You’re a great wife and mother. I admire you!”
