Calgon, Take Me Away!
Calgon, take me away! Literally. Take me away.
Ever have those days? Oh, man. I sure did.
I'd go into the pantry and hide, hoping no one would find me. Wishing I could stay there all day, til bedtime.
I'd imagine leaving a note on the kitchen table (Good luck, honey) and running way. Far away. Pretty sure my husband feared that many days when he left for work.
I'd say...What the heck was I thinking? It's too hard. I can't do this anymore. We are miserable. I don't want to do it anymore. I want to go back to the way it used to be. I wish we had never done this.
I'd say...What the heck were those officials thinking when they placed these children with me? I'm not the right person for the job. I don't know what I'm doing. I'm making their lives worse.
Ever feel like that?
That's when you need someone.
Someone to...cry to, scream at, sit in silence with, lean on.
Someone who will...pick you up, hold your hand, guide you, help you, hold you and cheer you on.
You need someone. This job is too big to do it alone. Surround yourself with support!
Remember...you are NOT alone,
P.S. Need someone? I know how that feels. I really want to be there for you in the best way I can. Join me in the Intentional Parent Coaching Group where I can listen and support you through this hard stuff. It is so important to make sure you don't do this alone.
