Thanks for reading Chris. What a sad story. It seems like a lot of people sometimes have more children than they have the capacity to care. I’m sorry you didn’t get the love and nurturing you needed during your formative years, but I am glad you were able to find refuge with an alternative family prior to creating your own family unit.
It sure makes life more difficult when our parents don’t give us the right tools. Our love deficits are very obvious when you see families like the Bush’s on display. It’s quite painful.
People love to say the past is the past, but it’s not. The past lives on every single day of our lives. The emptiness never goes away.
