Most people describe me as a hard-charger, as she-who-knows no fear. But I am scared of something – I am scared to face my feelings about the missed opportunities to help my ADHD son Clark, and the times others have scarred (or helped) him.
Making the effort to “show up” means everything in life, doesn’t it? I did not “show up” for our 10- or 20-year reunions. There, I said it. Ugh. I had reasons/excuses, but the bottom line is I just didn’t come. I have a reunion aversion akin to a phobia. I don’t show up to a lot of things. Shame on me.
