How often you ebb and flow does not matter.

How long you spend in each of these phases is not relevant.

How you treat yourself when you are ebbing (the entire time, as long as it takes) is everything.

You have your reasons for ebbing, reasons for being the way you are, for doing the things you do. You’re worthy of love 100% of the time.

Your level of understanding of both of these (in your body, in your bones) determines how high you can soar.

I know how much easier it is to say these things than to know and live them out.

I also know there is a path forward. It can get better. Even after a decade or more of what feels like going sideways instead of forward.

If you would like support with this process, please DM/comment. I’d love to discuss my 1:1 coaching.

I don't have any kids right now, but this is an absolutely beautiful article that packs a lot of depth and value into a small/short space. I resonate with this deeply and even this morning was talking about how what is still most important to me in conversation is being truly seen and heard (which I didn't get from my parents). I would posit that many of your points apply to all relationships in general, not just parental ones. In fact, a few of the points reminded me of my work as a life coach!

I will be sharing this article with my parent friends. Thank you for writing!
