Here is the message for the Mother of Resistance today.
Mother of Resistance by Bridgette Doerr
Ask for Help
Being brave means letting go of your worries
Surround them in love and bubble wrap and let them go into the world
To figure out their own way
on their own terms- is how it has to be
Trust them to blaze their own path
It is called growing pains for a reason
Just be there to sooth the learning burns
Support the process
You can’t control it, or save them or even make it easier
You CAN help them back up when they fall, when they fail, and ease the
hurt of the lessons
Because You are the Mom
This message came through this morning. I didn’t expect it but I was obviously in need of it. I wrote this after my son went to middle school on his second day, as I felt his deep anxiety, with his intense mood swings and outbursts. Nobody was hurt physically this morning, I should see this as a success , but as a Mom, it effects me so deeply. It hurts. I know there are other Mothers just like me, and with other situations unimaginable.
Not many of us talk openly about it, because it is unbelievable, everyone shares their out the door to school stress, but for some of us, it is more than just stressful, it is like planning for a natural disaster not knowing really what can unfold. You hope for the best but have back up plans. This is life with mental illness. That is exactly what it is. A diagnosed child, does not mean it gets easier or better or that it can get better.
Understand that I am talking about an 11 year old kid having tantrums like a 3 year old but lashing outward not holding back. It will not be much longer before he will be able to overpower me, and then who will protect the other children? And who will have compassion for my son.
Emotional behavioral disorders impact many lives. If you are living this pain in silence, I want you to know, you are not alone. And you matter. Your feelings, your desires, what you want for yourself and your child, matters.
The answer is in the resistance you feel, to redirect your worry away from you and receive the message of love for your self. What you can do from love, is what will make the difference in your life and for those you love.
Now, go back and re-read the opening passage, the Mother of Resistance message and receive it with a new perspective.
