Nicole  Zepter - The Day I Became My Mother


Are we damned to repeat the lives of our parents?

On July 1, 1974, my mother fell in love with my father. She became pregnant and gave birth to me. For 18 years I was to know nothing of this love and my father. 36 years later I fell in love with the father of my son. And repeated the most intensive year in my mother's life down to the smallest detail.

Both relationships followed a similar pattern. Both relationships followed a similar course and ended in separation and distance. My mother never again spoke to my father. I have an impersonal relationship to the father of my child. What happened? How come that I have repeated my mother's life? I wanted to have this feeling of fate, this feeling of living a life at the end of a puppet's strings, explained to me – by a therapist, by my family, by my mother.
