Being Woman – Part 11: “I’m from heaven”

Being Woman – Part 11: “I’m from heaven”

Usually I don’t think of myself as an immigrant. I guess like most people I read about immigrants in newspapers, I notice them in the streets, I look at them as “others”. In reality, I am one of them, I am the “other”. I have been living in the country that I call my...

Being Woman – Part 10: Being The Central Figure Of My Life

Being Woman – Part 10: Being The Central Figure Of My Life

It might sound weird but I’m trying to become the central figure of my life. To be here… and now… It can be a long journey. Couple years ago I had no idea where to start… I started with a simple exercise: I took a piece of paper, set the timer for 10 minutes, and...

Being Woman – Part 9: Letter To The Future 

Dear Love of My Life, I haven’t met you yet, but hopefully one day we will meet. I will be fine if you don’t show up in my life. I know I will. At least, I want to believe of your existence. I hope you will come, I’m just not ready yet… I need time to get a clearer...

Being Woman – Part 8: Letter To My Past

Dear Mr. Ex, There are days when I think that you are and will probably be the most important man in my life. There are days when I don’t give a shit about you and there are days when I want to smash your disgusting face... There are days when I would like you to...

Being Woman – Part 7: Emptiness

There are days when I feel like something is broken inside me, like I lack some kind of important organ, or cell, or one spiral of nerve in my head. It is like putting a huge puzzle of 3,000 pieces and at the end realizing that one piece is missing. You have been...

Being Woman – Part 5: The day I became a mother

Being Woman – Part 5: The day I became a mother

I should probably call it a “night” rather than a day; even though it is a long process that takes 9 months. However, the night that I became a mother was the scariest, loneliest night in my entire life… My baby was supposed to see this world in the beginning of...

Being Woman – Part 4: Thank you Ross!

When I was in my early twenties I received a book, a handwritten book, a book for me and about me, a love book, a good bye book. I tried reading it, but it felt so stupid and embarrassing, so I came back home and put it in the back of the drawer. I didn’t know what to...

Being Woman – Part 3: About Me

I was born in January – first month of year, first month of winter. I remember reading somewhere that people born in winter are less happy and more depressed. In my case it is true. I always thought that having a boring life is the worst thing that can happen to a...

Being Woman – Part 2: Saying Goodbye

The process of separation is very very long and painful. It has been almost a year now in my case. And things are slowly moving forward. Apartment that once was our common home is for sale now. I look at the pictures and all the things were bought, used, enjoyed by...

Being Woman – Part 1: Only One Thing

Every morning I open my eyes and feel flooded by the pile of things I have to do: have a shower, wash my hair, find decent outfit for myself and my kids, make breakfast (usually it’s 2 different sorts of porridge), drink lemon water, make coffee, prepare fruit and...
