"How can emptiness be so heavy"... I felt this on the day I left my parent's house.
Life changes the day you are married and walk out of your parent's place. No matter where you go, things are never the same.
The time with your parents and siblings, the comfort, the love, the cooked food of mom's hand, the care, the pampering and most of all the support and security and confidence that you have when you are with your parents or around them. It then feels as though nothing in this world can touch or harm you.
20 years passed and I am a happily married woman with two loving and adorable daughters. Time swooshed its magic wand, lots and lots of things have changed but life is wonderful with my beautiful small family.
But still the feeling of homely sickness- my parents house; my mother's lap where I used to put my head whenever I felt tired, the endless fights and the patching up with my siblings and my dad's-my super hero's hugs that soothed me still comes back to me from time to time.
Everyone is busy, but at the end of the day whenever I feel sad or lonely my childhood memories come visit me. I know that I can still rely on my parents. It doesn't matter if I am a wife or a mother myself or how old I get, I will always be their little princess.
Those memories will always be with me forever in the room of my heart and no one can take them away from me, not even TIME.
