Thinking about family, and considering reaching out for the first time in a very long time. I know I can’t build a bridge alone, that some of my feelings that once existed as hurt and over time turned into anger will need to be set aside. I am not known for possessing a thick skin, nor have I been one to apologize for my sensitivity. People are complicated, and families can be more so than other relations. I will set aside some of my stubbornness and pride because these feuds don’t need to be passed down. Right now, when I’m looking forward to the months ahead and the changes in my own family, I believe there are repairs that can be made. This may not be a bridge I’d ever want to walk across, but it might be strong enough to reach out from one side and connect with the other. If I take care of my heart, it won’t hurt so much to try.
