Ma, if I never become a mother, it would be fine. I decided this today. You can just teach me, perhaps, how to love like you do. How to swallow my pride. How to think of other people first. How to be tender and firm at the same time. How to be patient. How to show anger even if it's not how most people express love. You only feel angry toward someone when you love them, right? If there's no love, any untoward emotion is not anger—it's disgust, indifference, unfamiliarity, defense. I want to understand you more. Teach me.
