“…Here’s the best part.
“If you’re feeling particularly burdened by the destruction you’ve brought into your child’s world
“and believe the situation to be hopeless,
“you need to know a powerful truth:
“Your child’s life and outcomes at this point are not dependent on you. What happens from here on out is up to him(her).
“(S)He can actually go on to have a wonderful, adequate, even beautiful life, even if it is in spite of you. “
Is it weird that I feel so encouraged by this?
Probably. But there you are.
Hard part of my journey.
There’s stuff back there when I was in the worst of my addiction and undiagnosed mentally ill life….
That I would give anything
to make go away.
I release myself. 🙏
Gotta learn to love my enemy—even when it’s me.
