It's hard for me to love myself when my own mother despises me. It's difficult to comprehend how a mother can choose to hurt her offspring rather than love us. This fact makes learning to love myself the hardest thing I've ever done.
Accept that years were wasted on an alcoholic. Accept that you were married to a man who was in denial. Let go of the abuse you took from an alcoholic. Let go of the man who chose drinking over his children and wife. Have faith in what will be.
Nobody protects the heart like patience. Having a good thing is so hard because meeting a strong person is so rare. So I've learned to respect when people run from me, I realize my kind of love ain't for everybody. I'm at peace with that
