I think the skies the limit. It’s just so different now with gender fluidity, with different ideologies. Kids have way more access to information than we ever did and they can really be who they want. So I think it’s important to keep doing that and keep going. It doesn’t matter who comments on what you are doing in life, just keep going and be yourself.
Tell yourself, “You’re worth it!” My kids have one mother, it’s my responsibility to take care of myself as well as them. Baby steps, take time for yourself, know you can do it and never give up!
Forgiveness is important in life, but now I understand it has to be real. It can’t be something you tell yourself in order to cope because then it turns into resentment. Resentment is the opposite of freedom.
