A note to self...
Being there for my child for as long as it takes and NO MATTER WHAT is just the thing that will create healing.
Learning that what my child says is not necessarily what he/she means, I need to listen with my "whole" child in mind.
My child has gifts and challenges...I need to know them all inside and out and parent from there.
Every day of our lives is integrated into who we are. The past does not simply disappear.
Trust is a make-it or break-it concept. Rebuilding it takes forever sometimes.
All I can do is set my goal to give my child the best of me every day. Sometimes I will meet it and sometimes I won't, but to start new each day with this as my goal is the ticket!
