Jim stumbled onto this today - I couldn't have said it better myself and forwarded it to my daughter (kids tend to listen to other people's wisdom more than mom anyway, just in my personal experience)

Have a good weekend, everyone...

Thank you so much for sharing this.  It is just what I needed right about now.  It puts everything into words that I have been struggling with for quite sometime on what I want for my kids.  It is something that I really wish I could get my 13 yr old son to understand too.  That if you do these things you will become a happy and healthy adult.  He has Bipolar and it is hard to try to teach someone with this that it is okay to try things and experience sadness etc.  It is not the end of the world.  You learn from it and move on.  blah blah blah...

Didn't mean to get all mushy but this made me cry like a baby.  In a good way.  Wink

I'm glad you found it helpful.

My daughter suffered a long time with a severely narcissistic father...and though we finally got her on her own two feet, stepping into a future full of possibilities, the aftershocks are so hard on her. I try to encourage her to not let the past define find the strength to forgive and let go. It is hard when our children hurt...we can't protect them from life, just be there with open arms to catch them if they fall.

This is great, thanks Robin. In fact these are all good reminders for many of us adults who could use a little lift, thinking back to childhood, how it went and effects us now is a big part of many lives. 

I'm gonna share and share some more. :)K
