I saw this posted on Facebook by Lessons Learned in Life and it really hit home.
I spent the majority of my life doing exactly what this says you shouldn’t do. I was always apologizing. I was always making excuses about why I made certain decisions or chose to do something a certain way. Why? Because people can be so judgmental.
The fact of the matter is that most people, fortunately, couldn’t begin to fathom what it has been like to be a young widowed Mother. You can’t compare me to you. You can’t compare my kids to yours. You surely can’t compare our lives. They aren’t going to look the same!
I finally realized that I have no reason to feel like I need to explain myself to anyone, but God. The path we take to get where we will go isn’t going to “look” like yours. What I do know is that three of us are going to be just fine!
Walk your own path proudly and unapologetically, knowing that every single step you take is a part of your story.
