Because she did not have to be home alone with her abusive stepfather. Yet, Michele’s essay continues and she describes her silent, cold relationship with her mother. Aside from the previous example, Michele does not state feeling lonely – instead, she describes it perfectly. She discusses the nature of loneliness and what it feels to not be able to confide in her own mother or to not be able to speak up. Michele describes the difference between a “good girl” and a “bad girl” when really; both girls are just as equally lonely.
She does not care anymore at this point. Edna comes to the conclusion, once again, the motherhood and wifehood lifestyle she is currently trying to live is not at all for her. She officially gives up on her children, and specifically her husband. Edna does not get very emotional or upset over this… she takes the situation and makes the first realization about herself. “In short, Mrs. Pontellier was beginning to realize her position in the universe as a human being, and to recognize her relations as an individual to the world within and about her” (Chopin 17).
At this point, nothing else matters besides her intuitions and desires. This brings difficulty to her familiar relationships and friendships due to her rejection of living according to her role as a mother and a wife. Even though this conflict is addressed, it does not make an impact on her decision to remain a bit selfish through this time that she is finding herself. As a way of explaining her state of mind, Edna states that she "would give up the unessential; I would give my money, I would give my life for my children; but I wouldn't give myself. I can't make it more clear; it's only something which I am beginning to comprehend, which is revealing itself to me."

In their culture they live their life after their believes and that of way the essay is called “ where the gods fly” and even dough the mother wanted the best for her family she forgot something, you have to live every day if it was the last.

She is not yet seventeen – time enough to follow another path, to look upon another face of the god.
“On Going Home” talks about how difficult it is going back home to her family in the Central Valley of California and how uneasy it gets going back. The life she has between her child and husband is different from the one with her mother, father and brother. Her husband doesn’t understand anything that goes on in her family. For example, she says “Nor does he understand that when we talk about sale-leasebacks and right-of-way condemnations we are talking about the things we like best, the yellow fields and the cottonwoods and the rivers rising and falling and the mountain roads closing when the heavy snow comes in.” (Didion 2). The conversations she and her father have, is actually coded for something different.
She misses her homeland and this experience of being neither in Calcutta nor in America nearly kills her. She is a true representative of diasporic people living in similar hidden trauma. Like a traditional Indian wife in appearance and in ideologies, her life revolves around her husband and children and she sacrifices all her comforts for the sake of her family.
