Have you seen the movie, ‘Mommy Dearest’ with Faye Dunaway in the leading role? It recounts the upbringing of Christina Crawford, the daughter of Hollywood starlet, Joan Crawford.
Watching that movie brought a lot of tears in me and stirred negative emotions in my body. I’m not saying that my mom was like Joan Crawford, but the diva’s behavior reminded me of how strict my mom was with me when it came to cleaning duties. For example, we see Joan on her knees scrubbing the floors like a mad woman.
The floors are very clean, the house is luxurious, so there’s no need for such a hard work. I recall how strict my mom was at home. And how determined she was to clean floors until she could see her reflection in them.
