I hoped and prayed that the vicious nature of her once beautiful soul would taper off and reveal the person she once was.
I hold a glimmer of hope that there is still a flickering light of love somewhere in the depths of her soul.
A glimmer of hope that she will one day realise that her current ways are detrimental to not only her own health and well being but to others too.
It scares me to think what she could possibly do if she was to ever go through with her threats. That is what scares me the most.
My once courageous feelings of knowing that i WAS capable of almost anything have, over the years, tapered right off as her behaviour worsened.
I know parenting is a never-ending series of lessons about life, but this is getting a bit much at times.
I hope that one day, all this negative energy and outrage will taper off so much so that is is a far off memory that we can all put behind us.
