Being a mother to two girls has really opened my eyes to so much in the past 4 years. My oldest says she loves me everyday even if I get upset with her. Our love is unconditional. Sometimes she’ll look at me and ask “you mad?” With her head tilted and if I reply “yes” or “of course I am, it took me a long time to fold that laundry” then she abruptly replies “but I dont want you mad!” She is so fascinated with things I had forgotten all about… like how the moon likes to follow us. When I hug my youngest, nearly 15 months, she pats my back and says “aww” with me. I do a lot of the parenting on my own. I use to wish I could have more help, but now… I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love being the one they look up to, the one they ask endless questions, the one they ask to be picked up by, and converse and hug the most in a days time. They teach me so much about the world, myself, and all in the process of teaching and moulding them into little people, its astounding. It really is astounding.
You are not going in circles
You are making progress in a spiral. You do come back around to where you were at the start, since recovery and healing take time, but every time you come back around to that point you’re a little higher up because you’ve got more experience, more knowledge, and more strength.
You ARE making progress
I really needed to read this!!
