It is so easy to misunderstand people especially family. Reality is clouded by our own feelings and our own sense of worth. All these years I have felt one reality when it was another, I have felt put down and criticised when that was not the intention. The intention was to help me grow, to help me get rid of so many fears and anxieties that have been my constant companions for years, to see me happy. And yet, as we know, helping another person through their internal ordeals is not an easy task. It can feel like an invasion of privacy, it can feel like you are telling them what to do with their live, like they are not good enough the way they are or not accepted for who they are. Fear is a bad counsellor. Love can be a magnificent bridge but it takes courage and a willingness to expose oneself. I am in awe of my family and myself for constantly building this bridge. I am in awe of my friends for being there for me. I am in awe of myself for constantly growing and seeing good in everyone.
