Shrinking Women

My mom showed this video to me over the weekend, and I thought it was pretty interesting.

  1. This was absolutely amazing. My favourite part was when she says, “she wanes while my father waxes,” relating them to the phases of the moon. Incredibly deep, thanks for sharing!

  2. I watched this with my mom while home this weekend. I think the most disturbing part was when she described how her mother would sneak into the kitchen in the middle of the night so that she could get some sort of substance to eat.. Even worse, it’s not the like mom was eating anything like dessert or something “shamefull” (please realize I do NOT think eating sweets is bad, just getting in the mind set), she was only eating plain greek yogurt because of how hungry she was! One deep thought I picked up on was how her mother was shrinking in on herself to take up less space.. and how this taught her daughter to be ashamed for existing. How dare she ask a question in class?!
