stray thought

Why do women often choose their husband over their children? I know a lot don't, but somehow, people make choices that even as I understand the psychology behind it; the logic and realities of these choices are so obviously NOT good for anyone.

I donno. Am very conflicted.

Sometimes, ignorance really may be bliss. Or at least, denial makes the surface normal while creates a great festering wound that slowly poisons the very life it provides. Nothing less but a hollow shell infecting and consuming everything around.

I have a fav. phrase lately...'sucking the life out of______'. I wasn't even thinking vamps either. Hahaha.

Now I'm kinda regretting not writing that horror. I do that next. Maybe...


  1. Sucking the life out of my WIP that has taken over my life?

  2. LOL...

    Sucking the life out of my bank account!

  3. Teehee.

    Sucking the life out of this chocolate bar.

  4. Are you reading a book where the woman chooses the man over the kids or are you talking about someone in real life? And why would they do that? IDK

  5. Tracy - A bit of both. In books, I usually see it in the "mother" of whichever character. In real life, I'm seeing it quite a lot. I don't quite understand myself.

  6. Now that I think about it there are a few books that I've read that have the moms choosing their men over their kids. Those are incredibly selfish, insecure people IMO, but that's just me. I don't recall seeing it with the heroines in any books I've read though - it's always part of the horror/background of the person as they grew up.

  7. Upbringing and beliefs. It's Biblical to choose one's spouse over one's children.

  8. Tracy- Yup. Lots of books and people like that out there. It's just so complicated yet simple. I donno. It makes me feel all conflicted. >_< Maybe I need to switch books to read. ^_~

    JenB- Good point.
