It wasn’t like she was full of courage. In fact, she was the opposite of courage. She was timid her entire life. People never valued her. She didn’t experience appreciation in her whole life.
That’s how timid personalities are treated. With no particular appreciation or affection.
But that day things changed. She demanded everything that was not given to her and nobody could say no to her. That’s how fierce she was.
Motherhood changes everyone.
Even a street dog like her!
Meddling with her pups would be the last thing anyone will think of now. Motherhood made her fearless.
