Through the initial pain of our relationship, I eventually learned to see my
children as my greatest teachers and appreciate them
for showing me the parts of myself that needed healing and integrating
so that I could fully and completely accept all of me.
I found the courage to face my own past, acknowledge the wounds
from my own teenage years and release all the long-held, deep emotional pain.
Now based on my own self-love, honesty and authenticity,
the relationship with my son has dramatically improved and
I am forever grateful for the enormous opportunity our once painful relationship gave me.
