Lessons In Life #12


Lesson 12

It’s okay to let your children see you cry.

I didn’t think it was. I thought you had to be endlessly fearless, perfectly strong, mighty and indestructible all of the time. I thought you had to be the one ready to fight the monsters in the cupboard, growl back at the thunder, stand before the terrifying spiders and save the day. I thought the last thing you were allowed to do was cry.

But then I broke. I cried. And far from losing faith in me Tori comforted me, showed me how much she loves me and reminded me that I’m still only human and that even if I cry at the monsters at the door it’s okay because we can face them together.
