They have seen us at our best and at our worst. Though they may be able to accept us for all that we are, this is still no reason for us to show or allow ourselves to freely show ourselves at our worst with our family.
With all my heart I believe they love us. That a part inside of them always longs for our good. And they accept us for all that we are. They deeply care. They deeply love. Often times, we leave them deeply hurt when we think otherwise.
