Imagine how much better you’ll feel not carrying another person’s guilt. We carry guilt, regardless of whether the guilt belongs to us. It is only when we look back that we may see the madness unfold.
It’s not so much what’s said, it’s only when you get to read between the lines on the things that aren’t said that could have been said, that would dramatically change how you see yourself and your life.
Where family are disappointed, they won’t always say, and we’re still left to pick up the pieces on our own. As we continue to journey through life, we tread water until something in our head just clicks, and our perceptions change overnight.
But no matter our experiences or what our issues are, we owe it to ourselves to want to be better. We must work on ourselves to do and be better, to know that we finally deserve better. Knowing we deserve better is closure.
