amm had many empowering stories of her being a strong woman in a male dominated society. Situations where she took control when she needed to take control and proved herself time after time.

And I have tried to do the same. And show that her lessons were important and have not gone to waste. But when do you accept that there are certain situations where you can’t win the fight? Or the battle has gone on too long? When do you accept defeat? And can defeat ever not be considered failure?

I am tired of fighting, mom.
