I would really like to suggest that we forgive our parents. They did the best that they knew how. We're in our late 30s and 40s still trying to figure out life. Imagine raising kids in their era and trying to figure out life. They didn't have the knowledge that we have. They didn't have DFS in your business to tell you what was right and what was wrong. They didn't have a "me too" movement. Their generation is the cause of the me too movement...
Don't mistake forgiveness as me saying open yourself up to toxicity, but it's time to let that hurt and resentment go from your heart, so you can move on. Cause you're blocking your blessings with an emotionally filled heart.
And I promise you the emotion in the video below is what I felt like after talking to my daddy for the first time since I was in 6th grade and hearing him tell me how proud he was of me. I heard my mama tell me that she knew I was gifted and special for the first time last week. I know if I hadn't healed myself, I would've never embraced who I was, forgave them for what I "thought" was bad parenting, and thanked them for making me the woman I am today. I wouldn't have ever heard those words from them. I wouldn't be emotionally able to handle my sister friend's transition like I have. It probably would've taken me out by now. Again yes I still have days that the grief kicks in, but I don't STAY there. My goal is to live in the moment and enjoy the journey.

As usual if you need someone to talk to send us a message. If we can't help you we know somebody who can.
