This woman's story was amazing. Although my life is so different from her's, there was something she said that helped me to cope better in my life.
She talked about loosing her son and finally finding him again. Her mother in law had wrongfully taken her son from her. Instead of just taking her son back, she let go and gave him time to realize what happened,
That is so hard for a mother to do. She did it for him. She is a strong woman and an inspiration.
My ex-husband is attempting to do this with my children (I have 3). He is trying to push me out of their lives. He had succeeded with two of my kids. They hated me and had no respect for me at all. I have learned the hard way to let go. Seems like, by letting go, the kids are finding their way back to me. It's not fair. I lost years out of my kids lives. Right now, I am very tense around my kids. I am always afraid of saying or doing the wrong thing. I cannot explain to them, how they have been manipulated by their father. I need to step back and let them realize they have a mother who loves them with all her heart. Life is never fair. What doesn't break us, makes us stronger.
Thank you for the inspiration
