What My Mother Taught Me
My mother is late anyway and this is me using alternative means to mourn her and keep her memories alive.
She taught me to not allow anyone take away my self esteem. She posited that I do not have to piss on myself so as to make the next guy look better than me, perhaps, because he’s from a rich background. I can betray love or apathy for such a person but not to make myself stupid around him/her even when I’m trying to be cunning. This she supported by saying that one’s rich background doesn’t mean he’s more blessed than me.
That’s my mother talking to me!
