Nothing is more painful...

Sunday, April 26, 2009

Than when your heart is broken by your children. And believe me, I've gone out with enough men and thought I was in love often enough to know this - no pain is comparable. You walk around with that child in your belly for 9 months and then suffer pain no man can ever know in order to reap the joys of their lives melding with your own. But they are part of you, and so just as painful and joyous as that birth is is how painfully painful it is to suffer when they suffer, or when they want you to suffer (even unconsciously) ... no other heart break is comparable then the heart break you endure when you cope with your own. I know this because I've been coping for 7 years. And any woman who was ever pregnant knows this too, for sure - whether she has children or not.

    I hear you! My son (3.5) is so wonderful, and SO challenging. What hurts me even more is when I know that my faults as a parent are to blame for his outburts. But each day is an opportunity to do better. Hang in there!

    Your post jumped off the page at me this morning as I was tracking my exercise. You are SO right when you say that there is NOTHING more painful! My heart goes out to you & I am sorry that you are hurting! emoticon

I have been going through some extremely difficult times with my middle DS for the last few years. While he is much older (21 now) & the struggles are different, I can totally empathize with your pain. I'm hear if you want to talk! emoticon

    You sound like you are in a lot of pain and I'm so sorry that you are. I do know what you mean. I've had issues with dd and it has been the most trying, heart breaking thing I've ever had to deal with.
