 » The pain that exists within us and therefore within our families is oh so patient, and unlike most of us, it knows it’s worth. It will not leave until we give it the wholehearted attention it demands. Should we chose distraction, busyness, material successes, “positivity,” or any other of the myriad of shortsighted dissociations, all we really are doing is choosing to make the pain we carry the legacy of our children.

In the words of @brenebrown, shit rolls downhill. Whatever pain we experienced as children WILL become the pain that our children and others we interact with will experience UNLESS we allow ourselves to feel it and ultimately heal it. We can take ownership for our pain, or we can pretend it isn’t rolling. I have chosen to hold myself accountable.  »
