Breaking the Cycle

I am 36 years old and I was raised in a abusive home. I am sure most people would say get over it. Well I tried. I found myself seeking abusive relationships or abusing myself.
I have been in therapy and working really hard for years to forgive my past because I don't ever want my children to go through what I have. I know I am not perfect nor do I pretend to be. I am honest with my children and am always available to them.
I can't wait to one day meet my grandchildren, I know they will have fantastic parents and they will feel safe at home.
Healing is a process and we are all working together.

Love your attitude on this one, Mom! Keep up the encouraging work! Perhaps the more possitive results you see from your children, the better you can start to heal from your own childhood.
