It’s My Fault
I jump through rings of fire, walk on glass, bend over backwards and would even lay on a bed of nails to make sure my kids are happy and get everything their hearts desire. So why is it that they only see the times I can’t do something or can’t get them what they want at that moment? Its all my fault, I’m a horrible parent, I don’t want to do for them or I don’t want them to be happy according to them. I don’t get the thank you, the hugs, the gratitude or any recognition for all the good that I do. Yet, I get the eye rolls, the cold shoulder, the silent treatment and the resentment for the one or two times they feel I let them down. I don’t get it. What am I doing wrong??
