“When we live with a mental illness and/or disorder, we cannot conceivably connect to the pain and suffering that we inflict upon our loved ones that may cause permanent damage.
When we heal, perhaps years later, and we understand the magnitude of our loved ones severe pain and their own struggles that affected every moment of their lives, including their own perception of self, and of the world around them, it may be irreparable.
On the other hand, we may be blessed with many lessons through these challenges, and through prayer, and deep inner work within ourselves, and then deep connective work with our loved ones, we may have the opportunity to begin again.
And somehow, we must learn to forgive ourselves.
Thy will be done.”
Love and blessings,
