This is the sad but true case for many families. How can an adult bring their emotions and vulnerability to their interpersonal relationships if that tool wasn’t given? Should EVERYTHING fall on the parents? No. However, emotional support to your children is just as important as physical and financial support.
Has this been you? Did you turn to another family member to provide that emotional support? Or did you find yourself doing the work on your own with a therapist?
What does the child do? Thoughts?
Thank you for reading!

I struggle with this a lot because I’m still at a place in life where other’s thoughts and words matter and can affect my day. It truly shouldn’t and I’m aware of that and I wear my heart on my sleeve so it doesn’t help.
One thing that my therapist and many others say is that you can’t let others have control over your emotions. No one, should be able to control my feelings, how I think, or why I make the decisions that I do. So, with that being said, I share with you ways that may help if you struggle with this issue like I do.
- Don’t take EVERYTHING personal.
- Most talk a big game, but can’t follow their own advice.
- They are HUMAN not a higher power.
I’m sure there additional ways that can help but those are my top reminders for now. What about you?
Do you have techniques on ways to protect your peace?
Thanks for reading! Have a great weekend!
We have to feel good not only physically but mentally and emotionally too.
This past month has been a roller coaster of emotions for me because of the sudden death of my father. Do I feel I will ever be the same? No because a piece of me isn’t here on earth anymore, however I’m stronger.
God knew exactly what He was doing with me battling MS, becoming a wife and a mother. In my relationship with God, I truly feel He knew that I had to go through some obstacles so that I would be prepared for one of the biggest obstacles to face. On that same note, He knew what type man I needed to be my rock, to be strong for me when I can’t at the moment. I thank God every day for my husband, Stephen. He knew that our son would have such a great personality that whenever I get upset or I’m not feeling well, I would automatically smile and feel joy.
I’m not 100% myself, however little by little, I am getting stronger in all categories. What about you all?
How do you feel physically, mentally and emotionally?
I saw an interesting tweet this morning that said cuddling can be a cure for pain just as pain killers are. Hmmm, I don’t know about you but it makes sense to me.
Like babies or a small child, when they hurt themselves or are feeling “under the weather”, seeking comfort from their caregiver adds to the recovery process. They feel safe and secure that whatever the issue is he or she will be fine. I feel this applies to grown-ups as well.
If you are not feeling well rather it be physical, mental or emotionally, seeking the arms of a companion, friend or family member can put you in better spirits. Sometimes, words are not needed to know someone is there for you during a challenging time. Just the embrace of feeling safe, secure and wanted speaks louder than any “I’m sorry this is happening with you” comments.
How does physical touch (hugging, cuddling) make you feel?
