I am fighting the urge to not turn inward. Turning inward is what I did before. Shutting out the ones I loved outside our family of four.
Fear of the consistent comments of “when I was a kid that was not allowed, in my family that was not accepted whatsoever, send him to his room, yell back, put him over you knee, let him cry it out and avoid him…”
Avoiding, separating, and /or yelling is not what will smooth his road, sure fire way to make his road ahead filled with potholes.
Life is HARD…having community, support and deeply loved is often what is holding me together.
