I have lived my life wanting, hoping, for nothing but the best for my family. Even though I had dreams and aspirations for them. I hope I never made them feel like they disappointed me when those dreams were not achieved. I do not feel like I ever tried to cram my ideas down their throats. As much as I expressed my want for their futures I do not believe that I made it sound like all or nothing to them. I always wanted them to make their own choices. They have to live their own lives. It is my job as a parent to support them no matter what they have going on. All I wish for is their understanding for some of the decisions I have made and will make in the future. Here I go again admitting I made mistakes. This is something most people won’t do, probably why they have a hard time communicating with each other. I would like to be forgiven for those mistakes. None of us are perfect and therefore forgiveness must be a part of our daily lives. Forgiveness is a two way street. I cannot forgive you if you do not forgive you. I cannot expect you to forgive me, if I never shed the shame of my mistakes. I pledge my full support in all you do. All I ask in return is the same.
