I have always been that way - from the time I was probably an infant. I see it in a few of my children and I have to remember that they certainly didn't inherit that trait from their father. That's allllll me, baby!
My previous post WAS dramatic - but I feel very entitled to be so. Unless you have grown a human, spent nearly 10months anticipating its arrival and lost all control of your emotions, you cannot fault me for that.
It's just hard, but ultimately, worth it.
Just be thankful that all you have to do is read....you don't have to live with me.
