Fear and Motherhood



You never stop being a Mother
No matter how old your children get
For me, I am not afraid of too many things
But, when it comes to my children 
My fear for them and what I can't control
Is more anxiety than I can hold

  1. Ah, yes, I understand what you are saying here...but I guess mothers just have to have a bit of faith that their children will find their way, just as they did. But sometimes not easy.

  4. I hear this! Having a daughter and having grown up as a girl/woman, there is so much to be anxious about! Especially the way the world is today. Very well written!

  5. It seems to be part of the package motherhood hands us, the wish to protect and the knowledge that we won't always be able to. Love, faith and a sense of humour help along the way...:)

  6. A parent can certainly relate to this - we suffer more over our children's pain than our own. All part of the journey though, their scary passage, as they find their own way.

  7. Beautifully said.
    We will never be able to stop worrying as mothers
    even if our children is more able than us.
