Today I am pondering all the good advice and examining my ability to stick to the things I know I need to stick to and how I handle grief and anxiety. This is not an easy task, especially for those who have experienced homeless children, or children who live lifestyles that are very dangerous for different reasons. I would like to think it would be easy to know the path to take, and take it and not look back, but in my case I just at times fall apart in the face of possible harm to either of my adult children. Not to say I disagree with any of the known detachment processes, just that I am at time unable to detach due to fears of my own, so I am trying to meditate on this and see if I can get better at it. I really like this forum and am glad to have all of you for input.
