“This reminds me of going to the art store with my mother,” I said.
“Except I actually like you,” he responded.
I laughed. He was candid like that and I like having things like this acknowledged. Let’s deal with this stuff, on the table.
Yesterday, I was listening to a young person talk about their loving family. I don’t think they really understand what it’s like to grow up with a family that is not loving and not intact.
I also don’t think a person who grows up without a loving family fully understands what their loss. How could they?
What I do understand, is that the gap between the two populations is vast and the loss is real. If it’s not too late for you to keep your family together, I’d try to do exactly that.
These are my thoughts with the Moon in Scorpio, conjunct Saturn this morning.
Did you grow up with loving, supportive parents? Or no? How has this affected your life?
