My mom has always been an advocate for the underdog, because she always felt like one. I realize now that her struggles and her openness in sharing them with me have given me a much greater sense of empathy with others. I try not to see someone who is doing something they shouldn't and jump to conclusions...I wonder what their story is. I wonder what could have brought them to it. I was also taught to love and respect everyone until they give me a reason not to. That I wasn't better or worse than anyone else, even if another person thought differently than I do.
I think it's sad how many people don't think this way... but I really hope I can instill that in my kids.
I also knew beyond all doubt that no matter who I was or what I did...that both of my parents would be behind me 100%. I never knew this concept of unconditional love and acceptance was so foreign to some parents, but I hope my kids know that about my husband and I as well.
Sorry...I should be working so I started getting all contemplative. lol
