You are your own expert when it comes to your likes and needs. If you don’t listen and trust your heart, those needs will be pushed aside and you will end up stuck doing things you don’t like, possibly with people who don’t bring you joy.
What if instead, when we’re feeling hurt, or sad, we allow our children to see us cry? And when they ask, “Mommy, why are you sad?” You tell them. You let them know that you feel pain too. And by example, you teach them to talk to someone they love and trust when they feel pain, instead of trying to bear it all alone.
