When you were sick and stressed you needed me but you also rejected me.
What no one saw was I was the person who you showed your real distress with.
I was your safe place and person but this distress hurt us both.
You couldn’t let me near, but at the same time you needed me.
Until you were so sick you stopped and shut down and off.
You were done, I was done, we were done.
The wheels fell off.
Healing has not been therapies but connection at home.
Once we were able to remove the cause of the stress (school) we were able to spend it connecting again.
It wasn’t fixing, it was being.
It was time, just time.
It’s been two years and while it’s not always been easy it was necessary.
You needed this.
You’ve let me in, because you feel safe.
I think we are ready for the next bit now..
