    I love your writing Yvette, this is so true we are all broken in some way and the only way to over come it is by acknowledging that brokenness. I love that you point it starts in the womb. Right now I battle when I leave my son every morning to go to work because I don’t want him to think I’m abandoning him. When I don’t come home at the normal time he calls for me mama, mama. I’m trying my best to not be the person who causes him to feel or be broken.

Find the balance. You’re a good mom and he feels it. Read:
