When you become a mother, you are not yourself any more. Someone else is in your place; someone whose presence is because of you. And because of your role, you are dependent, you are attached, you are stuck, and you are in love . When you become a mother, it seems that your heart is chopped into as many pieces as your children, each piece in someone’s hand, pulling you wherever they want. As if your heart is beating outside your chest, fast and anxious. When you become a mother, you are not yourself. You are only a mother.
