Letting go.........

When our children are young, we have to protect them from all sorts of things. When they learn to ride a bike, we eventually have to take the training wheels off and send them on their way, knowing they are going to come back sooner or later with scraped knees. The same is true in relationships. They learn the reality of relationships too -- sooner or later -- theirs AND the relationship of their parents. As children, we have to protect them from the truth at times because young children tend to blame themselves for the parents' problems. As adults though, they need to find out the truth so they can let go of any self-blame they may be carrying around.
Even though the truth hurts -- deep down sometimes -- it clears away the fog so that we can look at our lives clearly.....and healing begins.
