I’m worried about this week we are doing a lot of traveling a ways from home and it makes me nervous. The kids go to camp and I know they will have a blast but I worry about something bad happening. It’s so silly. Why do I have these issues?

    It’s not silly.

    Thank you for sharing that. For me it’s hard to deal sometimes with the uncertainties of the future and of wondering how or if I will be even able to deal with them. I imagine that it’s hard for you in your own way and that must be painful and difficult. And I agree, it is silly for me when I do it. When I do it, I’m rejecting my own gifts abilities and faith that Life and the future will unfold as it will and I will still be there. Only you know why you do it, I can only say that uncovering why I do it is a long, painful and confusing and ongoing process. It is easier for me when I accept myself in the good and bad and embrace all of me, then turn to strengths I want to believe are part of me.

    For me, one truth that really has stood out is that even though I have these issues, the source was something “not me”. But something that happened to me, something someone did to me that taught me to reject my gifts and rights to be me, whoever I am. I find it very comforting when I am confused and feeling intensely to find or make a quiet space for myself and try to listen to what I’m really trying to be for myself and trust me, and trust me to be okay that I might make a mistake or things might not go as I want or think that the might and I’ll still be there for me.

    Again, thank you for sharing and giving me a chance to share with you.

    Worrying is certainly natural when it comes to kids. So as bethanyk has already said and I agree, no you are not silly. I hope you end up enjoying your travelling.
