Motherhood, in essence, can be defined differently by different people. For some, it may be the art of raising children, for some it may be the way a lady manages all the household chores and her children along with her career. Or it can be something that defines their personality. It’s the need of the hour to strip of the concept of categorizing motherhood into a single group and let each person have their own way of categorizing motherhood. Motherhood affects everyone in a different way and that should be respected.
It’s not necessary that you can be called a mother only when you give birth to the child from your physical body. Although in most of the cases, it is that you are a mother when you give birth to the child. But indeed, motherhood is much more than just a physical happening. There have been a lot of mothers who have not given birth, yet have taken up the responsibility of being a mother in the most beautiful way. And there have also been mothers who have left their children and disrespected the essence of being a mother. That makes quite clear that giving birth to the child not necessarily relates to motherhood.
Motherhood is defined by the art of nurturing and loving someone from the deepest corner of the heart without expecting anything in return for it. A mother knows all of your bad habits and even then she loves you. she teaches her children the art of living rather the art of a fearless and truthful living. She takes care of her child’s dreams and passions. She will help you fight courageously with your fears and hurts.
There might be many people whose biological mothers have not done anything a mother is expected to do. And, there are a lot of such people out there. The job of being a mother is not an easy one. Till the last breath, a mother takes care of the issues of their children and they never mind tackling those issues at any stage of their life.
A mother has to have enough of love, strength, love, patience, and wisdom. Motherhood has been a mystery for ages, indeed a sacrosanct mystery! It is far beyond the biological connections. Essentially a gift from God to their children!!
