I am debating internally on how to present the journey that explains how I got to where I am today. Do I want to open myself to negativity or do I just need to hear from others honesty. As a parent of an adult daughter(35) who has torn me apart emotionally, I question how to talk about it so I am understood? Should I start from her birth- no, boring and stupid.
There is so much and intense complexity to help create an explanation of the life I live today. The pain I feel is hard for me to put into words however, I must overcome so I have a life of my own. Did my past impact me differently than how it influenced my husband, resoundingly yes!
We are different and we created this child (and I can not forget my younger son). Maybe I will go back to the past and relate it to today. Let’s move on.
