Life Lessons

I’ve been having tough conversations with both kids recently about how life isn’t fair. They are both dealing with difficult shit, which we talk out. I’ll make a comment about how something “just is” and they’ll say “well I don’t like that” and I’ll have to say “yeah, it sucks, life isn’t fair.” I hate that they have to learn these lessons, but I also know they are necessary, and I’m glad I’m here to help them learn and grow. Not everything can be fixed or changed. Sometimes all we can do is find acceptance, and learn to give ourselves grace while we find our best way forward.
