My parents divorced when I was in fifth grade. It was a challenging time in my life and it still can be sometimes. It is difficult to go home to Ohio to visit family and to still feel that pull between both parents. My siblings don't seem to be bothered by the silent, forceful, pull like I am. I always feel guilty if I spend more time with my mom over my dad or the other way around. I often wonder if the guilt and inner turmoil that I experience when I go home for the holidays or even for the weekend is something that I internally create for myself?
One year for my birthday I was given a personalized necklace. I was really excited to receive it because it was special. I love hearts. I love that the the heart pendant opened. I loved that it was unique and personal to me.
Do you have a trinket that you hold dear?
