A Tale of Grief, Boundaries, and a Mother's Meltdown 🎭

In a turn of events that's both shocking and heartrending, Quiet Owl finds herself in the eye of a storm after her miscarriage. Instead of being the one comforted, she's left comforting her distraught mother, Anxious Hen, who accuses her of being cruel and ignoring her feelings. Amidst the emotional chaos, Quiet Owl stands her ground, setting boundaries, and asserting her need for space and time to process her own grief. The internet's take on this situation? Let's dive in! 🌊💬
