reflections on years past - looking back/looking forward
Two years ago my life was much different. My daughter and I celebrated New Year's Eve in the best ways you can when you have a 7 year old – playing with stuffies and toys while trying to stay awake.
Although my husband was in the house, he wasn't "with" us. He was still stuck in his drug addiction and all the behaviors that come with that. For the most part, I was essentially alone in the raising and nurturing of our child during that time.
I spent that night wishing for things to get better but not willing to identify what I wanted specifically because I would then be committing myself to actually making choices I wasn't ready to make. Should I stay or should I go? I was afraid of what might come if I made the changes I knew needed to take place. I knew I was in a bad place mentally and emotionally.
On top of that, the guilt of what my daughter might be experiencing and the thoughts she was forming about it at times became overwhelming. The shame was pretty unbearable, too.

Much love, Krysti
