Wanted to share something that lifted me up today...

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I have been going through a lot of personal growth lately, piecing through some memories from my childhood and making sense of my relationship with my mother, and agonizing over what to do. I have been cranky and withdrawn and apologizing all over myself for being angry.

Today, after yelling at DH for not realizing that I needed to eat lunch when he wanted to go take a shower (why, oh why couldn't I just tell him?!), we fought. After I got all my feelings out and apologized, as usual, DH hugged me and said, "Hey, it's alright. You know how the kids get cranky when they're going through big development? You are too. It's like you're learning to walk and you don't have your balance yet. You're scared, and that's okay. I'll be here to catch you."

It felt so so nice to hear someone tell me that it was okay to feel my feelings and to tell me they would be there to work through it with me, even when I lash out. I just wanted to share. The thought of my struggles and successes being just as painful and just as important as my childrens' really put things in perspective for me.

We're all growing, even when we're grown.

Wow - that sounds like one cool husband!
And he sure's got a point there. That's a good thing to remember for our "growth spurts" and "developmental milestones" in life past toddlerhood.
