May 7

This week it's taken all my willpower to stay in the moment, to not feel hurt, or lash out, or tell myself stories that lead to pain and self-righteousness. I am practicing kindness, moment by moment. I am listening, and waiting.

"If equal affection cannot be, let the more loving one be me."

Parenting is tough. Step-parenting is tougher. But this, too, will pass.

Hang in there, this is the worst age and can only, eventually, get better.
