In Seasons Change, Milda talks to her friend about the trouble she’s been having at home and inside herself and also makes a discovery.
MILDA: Isolated. Frustrated. Hostile, even. I need me. I need my own time. It sounds like such a cliché but I was running around Eric’s room, picking up his toys and clothes and caught a glance of myself in the door mirror and I screamed. Had no idea it was me. I actually thought it was someone else…it was me. I approached the mirror and didn’t recognize who I was. I felt like me, but I didn’t resemble me. I looked like a mess but that’s besides the point…there was something that didn’t quite…like I haven’t payed any attention to myself. I couldn’t remember the last time I actually fussed with myself to look good. Look good for what? We never go anywhere, do anything…watch movie after movie at home, listen to the radio, read the paper…there’s no jolt, you know. There needs to be something I can look forward to. There’s nothing. I’m not trying to say I’m not happy with my kids…I am…I love my boys, they are healthy and beautiful…but my life is for everyone else and I think I’ve finally reached a point where there needs to be some significant amount of time put aside for myself. And everyone is going to have to deal with that…but, why do I feel so damn guilty?
