I have never kept anything from my children, they know they had a big brother.
They have recognised when I’m unhappy, worried, unsure and so much more. This doesn’t mean I’m a bad parent, I know we are there to protect our children, but should we hide emotions from them too.
For me never hide, emotions are every human beings way of dealing with worries, stresses and grief. My children are in tune with their emotions and can express themselves. I couldn’t be prouder of who they are today.
I spent many a sleepless night worrying of how my hard times would have affected the children, and it will always worry me, but reality is that there was no need to worry.
As I continued on my journey through grief, and despite my own issues, I always no matter what did the best for my children, and it shows.
Be proud of yourself and your journey and digest the positives others say about you❤️💙💔
