Stopping The Cycle

“The cycle of abuse repeats”.  How many times have we all heard that?  It’s like a death sentence for some of us; those of us who suffered abuse as a child at the hands of our parents hear that phrase and think we are doomed.

    It’s a tough one for sure. Being a good parent often makes you very unpopular. Think, what kind of an adult am I creating by the choice I am making. What will be the consequences for my children long term. Take youself out of the equation. They will someday thank you for helping them become strong,protecting them , and always putting their safety and well being first. You will all have a good laugh when they are adults over some of the antics they pulled. Just remember what you needed and never recieved. You already broke the cycle. You will make mistakes we are human. Tell them you are sorry when you do. Children are very forgiving. I believe in you.

      Thank you for your comment! And I’m so glad you said it’s ok to apologize to them…I have when I’ve made a mistake and I wasn’t sure if that made me look weak.
      Thank you so much!
