Welcome - we are glad you came for help!
Are your children your life – your reason for being? If so, we are glad that you are open to learning from the valuable information we are offering you here.
Today, notice what you do when pain comes up - especially the pain of loneliness and heartache when someone is being unloving with you. Do you get irritated, angry or judgmental? Do you resist or withdraw? Do you people-please and give yourself up? Do you numb out with food or other substances, or with activities such as TV? Notice the ways you might be avoiding your feelings rather than compassionately attending to them.
