Comment on The Ways You Have Failed Me by Amna.
I can’t say I don’t identify with both parties in this case – I can see why it would be hurtful for a parent to see their efforts late in life didn’t repair the cracks as well as they’d imagined … But I can feel your pain of carrying that trauma around as well.
In the end this summed it up for me ‘Words and actions, once performed, belong to those who recieve them’ – powerful and true.
You’ve found catharsis in writing and this is so much healthier and healing than carrying the burden you were carrying in your heart all these years. You’ve made me strive to be a more ‘concious parent’ as well. Love, Amna.

The Ways You Have Failed Me
Its yours to do with as you wish 🙂 Looking forward to reading more.
And about conscious parenting – I THOUGHT it was obvious to me … reading your posts have made me take a (sometimes) uncomfortable look at myself and I’m not all I thought I was.
