I think it is the kind of piece that you should allow your children to read friend... for it is packed with your true feelings and emotions and your hopes and dreams for them. If you struggle to tell them how you feel in an appropriate way, Maybe your writings would be the best way to do it, just a thought friend : )) :

You have written a very feeling and poignant verse. As a mother, I can relate to the angst of having children who do not see the challenges or the triumphs in the lives of their parents. Well written and well said.

This piece is you! Your children deserve to see it. Believe me, it took years before I bared my soul to my children and found, very surprisingly, a great deal of empathy, from four boys. You can't hide your light under a bushel.

    Thank you for reading,

    It is about my need for some affirmation that I am not a weak person. I have used every resource I have had to improve my quality of life.

    I find it ironic that I am the first person my children and others turn to,?when life gets hard.

    I give a lot to individuals that take so much from me.

    But there is always God, And He is my rock.

    You have a point though- if I share my hurt, there could be some understanding.

I wouldn't show this piece to your kids either. Its way too sentimental and they may take it the wrong way.
You write in a way that suggests you are in pain and that you tolerate alot from your children.
Nicely written

    Thank you for reading.
    I feel it is something that they have to figure out about me. My children have expressed themselves enough times that I know how they find it difficult. I just keep working on myself. I think what I would like to have is some respect for what I have been able to do.
    In the world of mental illness- I am a rock star. In the world of my children, I am not like other mothers.
    With maturity, they might understand.
    I carry a lot of pain around this issue. They say things so carelessly but I never rebuke them. They would not understand.

    I find it ironic that I am the first person they come to in their time of need.
