I Soon Learned to be Quiet…


I may not be good at cooking but tried my best to cook for your family, just to see you proudly saying, my wife cooked it.

I spent the whole day preparing for the dinner as per your choice, still you took them out thinking that my food may embarrass you.


Why was I always made to doubt my own opinion even if I was right?

Why is it against the rights of a wife to be angry with him, to stop him when he was slapping me, to speak to my family about the abuse?


Why was it always my fault for every problem?

Now I think it was really my fault that I learned to be quiet!

Are relationships all about compromising and being quiet?

I don’t get it. I just don’t.

Where is it written in the history of time that women have to be the ones to bow, bend and serve while men get to walk around with their chins up?

In this male dominating society, a lot of women must have been through the same situation, having tears in eyes and still smiling. They are always expected to stop dressing the way they want, stop talking to the friends with whom they can share everything, stop eating what they want, and much more.

Why us?
