I read a blog post today We Must See Past What it Seems…..It almost had me in tears. I lie, I had tears streaming down my face.
It talks about looking past what you see, behind the masks, reading the signs of what the person is actually telling us.
If the phone isn’t being answered, if they suddenly stop chatting to you the way they used too, it’s all signs, and you have to work out what the sign says.
Sometimes I wish I had a sign. Only, I’m not sure what my sign would say…
“I’m a step-mother, who is seen as a step-monster, but I’m only doing my best.”
“I have a past, but I’m doing my best to fix my future. Be gentle with me.”
“I just want to be loved.”
