Mom are you hiding????
I know you know what I am talking about.
Yes, you are doing all the things every day.
Taking care of the kids.
Talking care of the house.
But you are hiding whats going on in your mind and in your heart
You may to people on the phone but don’t really let out how you are really feeling.
You are concerned with the way they will judge you because you are feeling sad.
You are concerned with the way they will judge you because you are feeling stuck.
You are concerned with the way they will judge you because you are STILL grieving.
Listen, there is no reason to stay in that place all along,
I know because I was just there.
Too stuck to take action because of what not wanting people to know I am struggling.
I am grieving.
And I didn’t want to tell anyone because it seemed so trivial.
But that trivial thing had me stuck.
I was grieving the city I recently moved from.
Not the people in the city, but the familiarity of the city.
Knowing all the streets, where to find and purchase things, my favorite landmarks…
Who knew THAT would be the reason I would be stuck and hiding
Mommy why are you hiding?
