It is never easy watching your kids go through challenging times where you know they have to figure it out themselves.
You can offer support, guidance and someone to speak with but you can’t take on the monsters for them or they’ll never figure out how to slay dragons on their own.
Got one of those situations going on now, but I hadn’t realized how far it had advanced until we had a certain conversation today.
Made for some heartache and pain but also some pride in seeing how much they have grown and how mature their response is.
Afterwards, I was asked what I want to do and I said I could go kick the asses of those responsible for this and I could.
But that would require ignoring my own advice and gut. Can’t slay the dragon for them.
So now I have to sit, watch and wait.
