Me too. I really HATED that-especially since I was on my own from 14 on. Between that and having a kid at 16 (and doing a damn good job raising her if I say so myself).
But as I go along (and partly due to raising these kids and seeing their understanding change with age too) I am starting to think that some things (not all) in life simply take TIME or repeated exposure to start fully understanding...
I don't know-it was just a thought as I was reading and writing and like I said-I was thinking aloud.
I'm really doing a LOT of growing and thinking and expanding my mind and heart right now. So some days I may make little or no sense because it takes a week to figure out. Bare with me!
