To be a woman is to be sensitive to another woman.
Since last June when I chose to work as a freelance trainer, & spend more time at home, I’ve had the strange misfortune of being around other ‘aunties’ / housewives. This is a rare species, I tell you. People say, “Woman is woman’s worst enemy”. I second that. And these aunties are the reason.
Ghareloo aunties are so negative about other women, it’s shocking & absolutely disgusting. They will criticize other women indiscriminately, particularly if she is a working woman. Whether it’s her dress, career, life-style, the way she raises her child, everything is put under a cruel scanner. Instead of appreciating her hard work & the fact that she goes out & works to support her family, they bitch around saying,
“Her husband isn’t earning enough I think, so she also has to work”.
Or, “See, how she runs to office. Wonder what attraction is there in her office for her to hurry so?”
If a woman disciplines her child, they say,
“Look, how harsh she’s with the poor child. What kind of mother she is?”
If she lets her child play with the neighborhood children, they are quick to retort, “See, she is not bothered at all where her child goes. She sends her away on the road while she sits like a maharani & watches T.V”
CHEAP! CHEAP! CHEAP! That’s the only thing that comes to my mind. Ah yes…a small letter too!
Dear Shameless Aunties,
Stop belittling other women. They may be imperfect but you are downright dirty. Your own insecurities & unfulfilled desires prompt you to attack them.
You are jealous of them. You envy their independence, their confidence in going out to face the world head on, and their obvious freedom to choose & make their own decisions.
You are stuck in your little world of cooking & cleaning kitchens & bathrooms. You find no escape from your slave-like existence. You grudge others their movement. Your resentment has filled your heart & sullied it.
God save you!
