Repression on Emotions

I am very mindful of making sure that our home is an environment where my kids can express the full range of human emotion. I did not have that experience in my childhood... and it still plagues me today. I am having to learn appropriate expressions of negative emotion in my adulthood, because I was not given the space to learn that as a child. It is a huge consequence that everyone in a family system has to bear, when abuse resides within a home life.

But now I am letting myself feel the full range of my emotion... because I deserve that experience... even if I have needed to wait until my adulthood.
