Head exploding with images, thoughts that make no sense. Hormones flooding your body, switching from tears to laughter in seconds. Angry, frustrated but don’t know why.
Welcome to being a teenager.
It’s so hard being a parent and not having the magic cream to make it all better. I watch her struggle to control her emotions. She is broken hearted but doesn’t know why. I hear the words “life is horrid” from her lips it cuts like a knife.
How do I help, my love for her is unconditional.
I remember going through this with her sister but she is a different character more open with her emotions.
E seems to believe it is a weakness to cry. I want to wrap her in my arms and rock her like a baby. She won’t allow this.
How do I prove to her how beautiful she is inside and out. I have always admired her strength and courage and even her stubbornness but now they feel like unbreakable walls blocking me from holding her close.
I know we will get through this somehow. All children go through this but my babies have been through so much in the last years. Losing their sister brought pain to their hearts. They are amazing, clever, kind and so much more.
How can I get E to believe this of herself. Life isn’t easy and yes it is often unfair but love will overcome all.
“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But for the greatest of these is love” 1 Corinthians 13.13
