I Realize That I

I realize that even though I am breaking the chains of abuse in my family lineage that my children will carry the scars and re-enact the codependent/abuse dynamic in their own way for their own mind-body to work out. But hopefully I can be present for them so it won’t take as much time and will be less confusing for them. 🤞
I realize I try to be brave but I know I'm not and will likely cave when I am scared. I am a scared little girl in a bigger body, and I don't see how that will ever change.
