I might not turn out how you need me to be. If that rings true, then I'm sorry for that, but I can't be sorry for staying true to me. You see, my mother was not who I needed her to be, but I know that she loved me unconditionally. It used to hurt me wildly that she wasn't what I needed. Now, I really couldn't care less about her shortcomings (to me). I love her where she is and I know she's doing the best she can. I've FINALLY learned to love her unconditionally. So I won't be surprised when you shut me out. I won't be upset with you when you can't stop being mad at me. I will know you are in the process of learning how to love unconditionally. The most wonderful thing about being able to love unconditionally, is that you are finally able to live freely. Peace has been made in my heart with my mom. I have only love in her strengths AND in (what I consider to be) her weaknesses. As painful as it was, I am not sorry for the struggle I went through to get to where my heart is now. I don't ever want you to feel guilty for your own growing process. I will be so sorry for your heartache, but I know you're strong enough to handle it. Hurry if you can, though! Loving unconditionally is amazing! Living freely is even better! Come, live freely with me!
