When mama bears feel helpless

Don't you just hate it when your children are hurting and there is nothing you can do about it? Well that is how I am feeling now.

Last week, after nearly 2 years together, my son's girlfriend broke up with him. I have had to watch him go through the emotions of being upset and angry.

Everyone, including him, understands how hard it is to be a partner of someone with high needs. The part that is hard for him, is that it was done by private message over facebook.

Now call me old fashion, but how can you try and work out any problems or even get any closure when things are done this way. Why stay overnight here, then go home and send the message? Why not talk about it while you are face to face. Yes, I know that is hard, but hell, so is life.

I have to say, that if any of my kids did this, I would be so disappointed in them and they would soon know it.

All a mother can do, is to keep quiet and be there for your kids, to pick up the pieces and help dust them off.
