I've been hearing from so many parents about how they wonder if they are strong enough to stay on this journey. They are asking themselves if they are the right parent to really help their child heal. I totally remember thinking the same things years ago. Do you ever go down this path of thinking?
There is one thing I know for sure...my answer to ALL the moms & dads and to you is a great big confident, Y.E.S. you are STRONG enough!
You were brought to this child for a reason. You were meant to be his or her parent. YOU ARE STRONG ENOUGH! And what most parents need to be reminded of is that it takes strength to ensure that you have handholds in place in your life to help you hang on when the going gets tough. So that you can stay in it for as long as it takes.
I really believe that there are 4 very effective handholds we should all have in place:
1. We need to ensure that we can have some joy in our lives...joy right next to the challenge. This can be done by continuing to fight to see and be filled up by the good in your day.
2. Being surrounded by the support of people who get it. Who have lived it. Who are living it.
3. Getting yourself on the calendar. Taking some time to fill yourself up.
4. Don't get so rigid or stuck that you can't meet your child where he/she is at - cause that's where healing happens.
Listen, from one parent to another...this is key. And I'd really like to teach you how to get these handholds put into place in your life. They fuel that strength. They create clarity. They inspire and energize you. They ensure that you and your family can have joy even as you work on healing.
It's your time to feel STRONG. It's your time to move your family to HAPPY and HEALTHY.
