Important, Perspectives, Relational Abuse

Mother’s Day: When failure to love changes the world.

Too often those of us who have been loved, albeit imperfectly, find it too easy to question the viewpoint of those who have been abused, thinking our small pangs of past misunderstandings qualify us to correct the perspective of the soul-wounded.

We must be learn to fall silent, my friends, and allow others to express their truth in honesty. Beneath responses we do not understand we may discover the lack of something we have taken for granted.

I found the poem below and realized that it isn’t only mothers who fail in this way. I experienced this in other relationships, and the experience is truly devastating. – Mere Dreamer
