Keep your heart open

Your child  hurts your heart because he is hurt.  Your heart hurts because your heart is open and you LOVE that child.

Keep your heart open.

Your child hurts your heart because he is afraid to get close to you.  Your heart hurts because your heart is open and you have wrapped your entire heart around that child.

Keep your heart open.

Your child hurts your heart because he is terrified to lose you, yet another in a long line of losses.  Your heart is open and you have no intention of leaving this child.

Keep your heart open.

Remember it is the trauma, the pain, the past that the child is striking out against, not you.  You are just “there”.  The closest target.  The symbol of the word Mom.  The symbol, the embodiment of the word Love.  They must destroy out of fear.  They must hurt before they can be hurt again.

Keep your heart open.

Someday, maybe very far down the road into adulthood, they will begin to understand love because YOU SHOWED THEM LOVE.  You showed them what it is to love someone even when they are hurting you.  You showed them commitment and understanding. YOU.  YOU DID THAT. ALL YOU.

Keep your heart open. (even though it hurts)
