All I want is respect. I shouldn't have to explain that. I want attention I shouldn't have to beg for that. I want someone not to notice my beauty but notice that it is made up of scars, pain and strength. I want someone who sees what a mess I am but can step back and see the beauty in my oceans fierce waves.
I have started playing some board games with my children where we play as a team and either the whole team wins or the whole team loses. Hoping to engender a better team spirit but also to get away from the 'I beat you! mentality. I want them to be able to celebrate each others successes.
