I am writing this post to offer an apology of sorts for my recent posts. I have made myself way too vulnerable by posting personal stuff and I regret it. I realize that I have some issues that I need to work on but this forum isnt the place. I will continue to come here and post about difficult child issues because you are all amazing in terms of knowledge and support in this area. See what happens is that when I struggle with something and then share it, I get sad if I dont receive responses or support and feel like no one relates to me. I find myself feeling oversensitive, needy and dependent upon acceptance when what I need to be working on is the liking and approving of myself. I dont want to put so much pressure on external sources of validation. Forgive me for dumping and for putting negative energy into my posts.
