As I look back and forward, I realise that “Some Walks You Have To Take Alone.” It wasn’t that family didn’t love you or care, in fact, quite the opposite.
Hindsight is an amazing thing and if I could turn around and take back all the anger and resentment for all the times I thought that I wasn’t cared for I would. It’s just that some paths in life, you have to walk alone and even then, you’re not quite as alone as you think. Your loved ones are still there, they have your back, in fact they always did, you just didn’t see it at the time. You don’t see it until years later, during one of those reflective moments, when things that were said come to mind. It’s funny how you just didn’t hear them when you should have. No, you were too full of life and what you thought you wanted or needed, that and stubbornness! ☺
It turns out though, that they weren’t wasted words and I did process them, I just put them in a box for future use. So dad, you didn’t, “waste your breath on me.”
Thank you family, your words of wisdom and help are now much appreciated. Albeit years later!
Love you xx
