I create a healthy home for my children
My childhood was filled with secrets. Doors closed as I walked by. Conversations stopped in mid-sentence when I came into the room. I was certain everyone was talking about me. I was positive that something must be terribly wrong with me. My shame became my secret.
Today I will have no more secrets. In my mind's eye, I will openall the doors and windows in my childhood house and let in fresh air.
With no closed doors to hide behind, the voices from the past ring clear. They are not talking about me, they are only concerned with themselves and their problems. Finally, I can release the shame that has for so long infected my life. My parents' problems belong to them, not to me.
Cleansed, I can create a healthy home where secrets don't exist. In this environment, my children and I will flourish.
