For too many years, I failed to be this kind of example to my children.
I didn’t deal with stress appropriately.
I didn’t deal with my emotions in an intelligent or healthy manner.
I spoke about toxicity without fully seeing it in myself.
The world needs more kindness.
For a time, I had thought that finding what I’d figured was a more correct “alignment” had finally configured things in the right places.
I was wrong for longer than I would like to admit. It caused problems to which I was blind in my ignorance. I ended up needing some help.
I fully believe people can change. You may not be able to lead them to it, and they have to want to change, and it can be a ton of hard work over a long time, but we can change.
I had to change; I’m still changing. And learning.
Maybe it never stops.
You can change, too.
