This letter is to my Friend
My Dearest Bestie,
You have come home and met my folks and so have I.
You and I have gone around town roaming the streets eating whatever, chatting away, spending hours together.
The day, I got married, you were even jealous of my husband being in more pics with me than you. (Trust me when I say, she came to a close finish as she stood right behind us in the name of collecting the gifts from me and peeping out when the guests posed with us.)
You and my hubby were quite friendly. I remember my then boy friend looking for a nice guy among his friends just to have a double date. And u just sat there shooting down one after another. You were just happy to be a 3rd wheel in our relationship.
But things started changing once I got married.
I couldn’t come out alone much from my in-laws’ place. I found it hard to leave the place when my mother in law had a long face every time I went out to meet friends. And neither were you comfortable to come see me there.
Every time we met, I had to come along with my husband who was happy to drop me wherever we were meeting but it wasn’t easy for him to always come pick me up. And I obviously didn’t dare go back home alone.
I decided to stop meeting u so often and settled down to having conversations on the phone. But that didn’t seem to last long as wellWhen I had my little baby, I just couldn’t afford to have a decent call with u for more than 5 minutes.
My baby just needed me more and somehow, my mom just cannot care for him for more than half an hour
It just got too overwhelming for me.
I couldn’t talk when u wanted to.
You couldn’t have long conversations over whatsapp during your office hours.
I know that you are pretending to be ok with all this. Even as you go through your breakup, even as you want to just hug me and cry over it. I find myself finding only a few minutes to spare.
So, I am writing this letter to you, just to remind you that I think of you every day and how I wish we could just have a few hours to ourselves relaxing over a nice spa or a heart filling buffet.
I will soon be able to come out with my little one and we will soon be back to being there for each other. Please hang on till then.
And I really hope you understand my struggle. Even if it seems like a cake walk to you now, I am sure you will better understand how crazily life takes a turn once a baby enters our world.
