We carry all of this pain, anxiety, disappointment inside. All we want is for
our loved ones to say they care, that they are sorry for
our pain, that they wish they could help. We know that there's nothing you can do to magically heal us, but we long to feel accepted and supported. We need your validation and to hear you say you believe our pain. We need a shoulder to cry on sometimes, not because we are weak, but because we are worn out from the heavy load we endure day after day.
