Hiding My Emotions

Every morning I always wait for the Kris TV to be aired at 9:30 a.m. I just love all the topics she got there, and this morning they were talking about single moms and such. I wasn’t able to follow their conversation but I could hear what they were talking about. 
When I was still a single mom with my eldest daughter. I always taught her to be firm and strong and be independent. When I have problems and I wanted to cry out loud, I would hide it from her because I know it will double her the pain and that proved one day, when I can’t help but to cry and she saw it. She hugs me tight, she doesn’t say any words but I know she cried. I even saw her cried alone; I know she was hurting with seeing me crying. From then on, I was being very careful with my emotions, with my feelings and with my day-to-day struggles. She doesn’t deserve to feel all the pain that I had, she is young and vibrant so she deserves to have a happy life.

    i can so relate to that because that's what I'm doing right now. My husband just went away for another contract abroad. Hurt though I am because of the separation, I have to be tough for my kids..

    by the way, do you mind checking out on Temporary Goodbye?

    Anne it doesn't hurt for her to see you cry. She needs to feel all the emotions in life. Sadness is one. After the tears just try to turn it into laughter. A good joke or a tickle always helps.
