VIDEO: How to Triumph from Being DIFFERENT

  1. Wow, I’ve waited my whole life to feel okay being different. Being a mom to seven, because I wanted to. Putting my kids emotional well-being above having a schedule and perfect orderly home like all the other successful moms by societies standards. I get criticized by them. I just don’t have the heart for environment being perfect over my kids feeling loved and valued. I grew up like that and was the maid to boot thanks to an abusive stepmom. I felt very unloved nut the house looked good. My home sparkles – with glitter from crafts we do. I have fingerprints – framed not windexed off. I have paper cups so we can just forget dishes for a little while and just be together. I’ve always felt like a failure because a good friend who has pursued ME for 30 years always tells me how it should be, how I’m depriving myself and kids. She has money, perfect mansion, perfect kids. Yet found out she beat them with a belt to make them cooperate with keeping house perfect. Her perfect husband is emotionally abusive in a very clandestine way, caught him and confronted her. Her oldest child wanted to kill himself because he was miserable after graduating because his every second wasn’t dictated by mom and dad putting him in everything to look good and succeed. Soccer, swimming, track…her daughter was an angry teenager because her dad was so hard on her athleticism. They had till be the best. We are negative after every paycheck. I have fibromyalgia, ptsd from childhood and domestic abuse with first husband, and post partum depression after my second child and it won’t go away She knows all this yet says to let r know when I want her to be my life coach. I couldn’t even reply. I’m to kind to want to hurt her back. I’ve started to avoid her. She lives five minutes away. I was a thousand miles away until five months ago when I had to move back to my home state due to job loss and subsequent foreclosure.My oldest son who is 20 broke my heart as he ran back to our old state thanks to his very abusive father’s power over him. I’d only had him for three years. It took me ten years to win custody despite pictures of physical abuse. Now he won’t have anything to do with me. My friend said to just worry about the kids I do have. I want to be proud of who God made me to be. This message was for me. I felt accepted and like I’m okay just how I am. Even though you don’t know me, I felt approved of and loved. Tears rolled down my face as I just let myself imagine you were talking to me. Words I’ve longed to hear my whole life. Thank you….
