I saw some of your posts on SW thread, I didn't realize that your Mom has not been a solid part of your life. I'm sorry about that.

I remember reading from you somewhere in the past, that you were unsure about having children, unsure about your ability to be a good parent.
If I have you confused with someone else, I apologize.

I had a conversation with a young woman not that long ago, who had the similar concerns and a similar past.

One thing that struck me about her, was that she was owning mistakes, that were not hers to own.
They were her Mother's to own.

Just a thought. smile
