Being a mother does not mean that you will always be providing comfort to your children. Sometimes you will need to take off the comfort to teach your children how to survive on their own. Initially, this will be hard to instill in the kids. The reward of their independence will bring you happiness in the end. Do not be afraid to show them the reality of the world, they need it.
‘Kids don’t stay with you if you do it right. It’s the one job where, the better you are, the more surely you won’t be needed in the long run’ – Barbara Kingsolver
Having your children around you may feel really good and satisfying. But if they hang around for most of their lives, it means they are still depending on you. If you raised them well, then they will feel the confidence to begin their own lives comfortably away from you. You may feel left alone sometimes, but that shows you did a better job at raising them.
‘Youth fades; love droops; the leaves of a friendship fall; A mother’s secret hope outlives them all’ – Oliver Wendell Holmes
