Seeing our parents as flawed is often a challenging concept to grasp.
Sometimes we lose ‘power’ in our lives as an indication that we need to pause or slow down.
We invest in the lives of others and we welcome them into ours – so much so that the relationship doesn’t blossom with symbiosis (which is often evenly yoked.)
You’ll find that you’re pouring continuously from your cup without refill and then realise (when it’s too late) that you’re on E.
We become blinded by people’s and/or a relationship’s potential and what they could be or should be so we stay with that idea of the person or the relationship.
