Thank you so very much for sharing. It’s so painfully hard to read bc the old you is still the current me and yet so comforting that someone else has been through this and has made a change.
I am inspired but my biggest fear is that now that she’s six it’s a little too late she will always remember what a bully and tyrant I was and the damage is done.

I feel like i could of wrote these words verbatim. I have four amazing chldren that i homeschool. We are always together. I have also started to see the light dim a little in their eyes, afraid to take be themselves, to be creative, to take risks, in the fear that i will disapprove and yell. This is new for me. I used to be free, and patient, now i yell and cry. After reading your post, i’ve realized that i’m being bullied, by myself.
I am having so much physical pain, as i am so hard on myself.
Thank you for sharing. You have helped me so much. I will say STOP every time i bully myself.
