What Mothers Are Supposed To Do


“I know what your mother did to you when you were little, what she was, what she made you watch, what she let men do to you and it makes me so… it’s just not fair. And no one can make that better, I wish I could, I do, but if I could somehow go back there, you know, and make what was happening to you stop, I could just pick you up and just tell you it’ll all be okay. That’s what moms are supposed to do. They’re not supposed to be the cause of your pain, they’re supposed to make it go away. They’re supposed to hold you and tell you everything is going to be alright. They’re supposed to tell you that thunder is angels bowling. And that it’s okay to be afraid of the dark, and it isn’t silly to think there might be monsters in your closet. And that it’s okay if you want to climb into bed with them just this once because it’s scary in the room all alone… They’re supposed to say it’s okay to be afraid, and not be the thing you’re afraid of. But most importantly, they’re supposed to love you no matter what.”
