Wow to This is Us last night 💜
I will be honest with you, I had my
Ugly cry on, and as always it was totally
I love the show because they talk about real life issues. It couldn’t be any closer to real life then it already is.
I’ve been on a mission to heal
My broken child. We all have one, if we’re willing to dig deep enough.
I used to hide and run away from my past, but it never really seemed to work. I thought by not dealing with it, I was actually really dealing with it.
I mean come on, something can’t bother us if we don’t let it right?
Answer friends 💜
As Kevin showed us last night, your childhood is something you still carry around with you. It’s a part of you and it always will be. We must be willing to understand ourselves, and in order to do that we have to go back to where it all started.
This isn’t about bashing your parents or beating them up. They did the best job they could possibly do with the knowledge that they had.
I know it might feel scary or feel like a betrayal to look in the past, because I was afraid too.
What if I hurt my moms feelings?
What if I say something she doesn’t remember?
What if My memory is incorrect?
Why bring up the past it’s over?
These are just a few of the thousand questions that were running through my mind. I want you to know that my Mom still
Loves me just the same.
She realized that this is about healing my heart and hurts.
She knows that this is not about her and that it doesn’t change anything between us. But what it does do, is that it makes us closer by being real. There’s no denying that our childhood impacted our everything, and that we all have a different set of lenses for viewing life through.
It helps us heal the broken because we’re willing to be honest. You don’t want to spend your entire life feeling like a kid on the inside.
(We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are)
Me when I say I love myself more because I was willing to dig deep 💜
If you don’t watch This Is Us then get on it, and you can thank me later.
