I hear ya, Sonya. I struggle with this too. I already have a tendancy to lean towards depression, my husband lost his 2nd job, and to top it off, we always talk about seperating. I have to work on patience, and the way I was raised by mom was, now that I look back, very abusive. Yelling, hitting, putting me down, making me feel stupid and worthless.
Needless to say, we don't talk. So the harder I try to not be like her, the more guilty I feel if I take a step backwards.
I like all the suggestions made, and my ds just turned 3 and his 'phases' are grating on me. Talking back, sometimes hitting, not sharing too well, he is obsessed with guns. I know he got this from Buzz Lightyear- which he no longer watches.
But everytime he acts up, it's my opportunity to work on myself and prove that I can change the pattern of behavior.
Hugs to you!!!
