Family wounds cut deep
It’s amazing how quickly tears well in my eyes when others share stories of what a great relationship they have with their moms or dads or both. Or even their family.
I didn’t want to bring someone down so I’m posting here instead. The wound from a broken family unit will always be there - but it’s not my place to talk about my stuff when others are sharing theirs.
I grieve this type of thing especially as I parent my own children. My oldest was talking about different places he might want to live. He’s only just barely 14 so he’s got a while but I had to hold back tears. And I reassured him that if the time comes for him to move away I will support him. I can’t make him feel like he has to stay near because of me.
