Comment on The Best Advice I Ever Received by soangiewrites.

I relate. My firstborn had colic, and cried for months on end. I would lay him in his bassinet and walk onto the apartment deck and close the glass door. I’d hate myself. I’d feel like a monster. But I’d go back in minutes later, and more calm, and sometimes, many times, N would be fast asleep.

Parenting is hard. And there is so much judgement. And so much shame. And you’ve done a wonderful thing here by sharing a story that is relatable, and nonviolent, and may help someone break a cycle. Thank you. <3
