It's hard to watch your child's heart break. You can't do anything, just tell them you love them. Tell them that you are there if they need you. And wait and hope it's something little and that they'll talk to you later.
Watching your child make mistakes is almost as hard. But you have to let them, you have to stand by and allow them to live their life.
Parenting has so many ups and downs.
And it's exhausting.
Especially when you are already feeling depressed because it's your birthday (tomorrow) and its going unnoticed.
