Daily Prompt: Helpless

Helplessness: that dull sick feeling of not being on the reins. When did you last feel like that– and what did you do about it?

I had several days like that. One of them was when my Mom told me I could only stay at my friend’s house for an hour. She was firm and I was scared.

One might think perhaps I was a teenager and a naughty one so mom had to rein me in. It was nothing like that. I had completed all my education, a master’s degree in History and an education degree as well. I was teaching in a local school.

My friend also finished her degrees like me, she came from a respectable family, her mom let her come to my house whenever she wished, but my mom was not in favor of letting me go to her house. She did not have a brother, she only had one little sister.

I felt strange that at age twenty two my mom would be so strict with me. Anyway, I did nothing I went to my friend’s house, first thing I told her was I’m only allowed to spend one hour with her. When the clock told me my time was up, I quickly hired a rickshaw and came home.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for sharing with us this post. I suppose, no matter how old we may be, we are still our parent’s children :).

    All good wishes,
