Is this your first child? she asked, looking into a face, which wasn’t even ready for what she was living with.. The mother replied, no… its my third.. Looking, at how cute the baby looked while he was asleep.. She thought how lucky his mother was, to be able to bring into existence a part of her.. She then asked, how are you feeling? Do you have any pain? Any pain in the back? The mother replied yes, it pains only when i sit for a long time..
She then taught the mother the right way of positioning herself and the baby while feeding.. After which she said, let’s get started, with some exercises you need to be doing, to ward off your pain.. The mother agreed and lied down on the bed.. Throughout the process of carrying out the exercises, she realized that the mother was very attentive to what she had to say, but didn’t even care about that baby lying just next to her.. Inspite of being a mother for the third time, she had no signs of a mother, whose baby was of prime importance to her..
After all said and done, she asked the mother, “How old are you”?.. The mother replied, 23.. The number, was the answer to all the questions her mind was filled with.. A moment of silence, just paused everything in place.. There she stood, infront of a 23yr old mother of three, as a 22yr old girl who still ate the food her mom made for her, still needed her dad to get things for her, and who still was a daughter to her parents..
All this while she had been thinking that life had been unfair to her, for reasons not worth a mention, just to find out, that life was far more unfair to others.. She realized, people were living lives worth more, than what their age could even handle..
It made her realize, that in life we all needed to grow, but not everyone, got time to grow..
That day made her realise, that she should be grateful that she had time to grow.. She was lucky, she had time to do everything she wanted to, before she could even raise her own children.. She realised she needed to make use of her time, she had been given to grow.. And now she wasn’t just a girl who was a living a life without a purpose, but a therapist who had a dream, a vision to change the world..
Now she exactly knew why she was here.. It all made sense.. She was here to make this world a better place with her existence..
