They should never make me feel guilty of expressing my thoughts, feelings, and emotions. They shouldn’t make me feel guilty of being me.
I did not allow my parents choices to make me bitter towards all of society or others dealing with addiction or mental illness. Theirs is only one story of countless others and while many individuals in these situations or otherwise may seem tough, everyone has a heart and they need love the most.
First off, shout out to my mom and dad for allowing me to move back in with them after I spent all my money and had no where else to go.
Big events will never be the same again. My parents will never get to see the person their daughter grew up to be.
But somewhere along the dad path I made a strategic shift – and if it were a bumper sticker that shift would read: “Shit Happens. Deal With It.”
One of the greatest gifts you can give your baby is a strong relationship between the two of you.
They are pessimistic about love. They don’t believe in it, they think it doesn’t exist, they think it all fades away or maybe they stopped believing in romance, they feed you negative messages about relationships and it becomes difficult for you to get these messages out of your head when you’re dating someone.
Those who have suffered from this type of hurt are capable of a deeper understanding and threshold. Those who have suffered tragedy know pain and suffering. Those who have experienced these times are less quick to judge, have kinder tongues, have open arms. They are trying so hard to keep everything together.
Thank you for loving me, it’s the toughest job in the world.
No matter what happens, own your choice. If it blows up in your face, there is no one to blame but yourself. These are the moments where you need to be open to learning.
