Today has been one of the bad days. I'm missing you something fierce today and I fucking hate myself for it. I know you don't care about me and you never will so why can't I let you go? Maybe one day I'll be able to but until I guess I have no choice but to take things one day at a time. Maybe one day... #hurt#ex#loss#love#fml#breakup#imissyou#itiswhatitis
”When little people are overwhelmed by big emotions, it’s our job to share our calm, not join their chaos.” ————————————————————————-
I am heart broken watching my girls being tossed back and forth. They are not handling it well. Gwen’s rage. Lyla’s unpredictability. Tonight, all I could do was just hold them, rock them back and forth, speak gentle words, remind them to take deep breaths, remind them to take space if they needed it. After they went to bed I balled my eyes out. I feel like as adults we have a hard enough time trying to identify our own feelings and work through them. Then to be present for our kids to work through theirs... These are moments why I choose gentle parenting. It’s hard as fuck but these are the moments where it matters most.
