  1. Isn’t it a bit of a strong reaction that Inajda gives Heyem?

    Yeah, Heyem is a bit full of herself, agreed, but I feel for her. She’s the weaker one, isn’t it? Alex is the strong one. Of course, I don’t mean that she wouldn’t need assurances and a shoulder to cry on.

    You’re good with emotional scenes!

    1. Hi Fayesal, yes, Inajda does tend to clash with Heyem. I think she has a lot of guilt over being absent from her children’s lives, and because Inajda isn’t a very openly emotional person, Heyem is deeply affected by this, and sees it as a form of personal rejection. Inajda doesn’t love Alex more than Heyem, but she likes Alex more as they get on better as people. It has a lot to do with Heyem’s narcissistic tendencies. Inajda suspects that It’s possible that Heyem may not have a narcissistic personality disorder if she had been there during her childhood. Although that’s one of the many factors in the formation of Heyem’s character, Inajda blames herself but she doesn’t like to hear this spoken out loud, and because Heyem has no filters…well.. I feel sorry for both of them really, as they have no idea how to form a mother / daughter relationship, whereas Alexand, although estranged from Inajda, doesn’t have the same craving as Heyem to be loved, so it’s easier for Inajda to form a bond with her. I feel sorry for Heyem too, although I wouldn’t want to spend more than a few minutes with her, she is quite deeply broken but she’d prefer to take this out on those around her, rather than deal with her flaws, as this would damage her very delicate sense of self worth.

Keep it alive...
