In the many years I’ve been a member of this community I’ve never shared much personal information about myself. This will not be the case today.
My mother just recently broke her leg and I found out a few minutes ago after getting out of my college class.
I was terrible to her the day before ignoring her after she’d helped me with an enormous project that took us days opting to talk with a group on Skype rather then finishing my end which was just to write a few measly sentence.
How do I deal with these emotions of shame, guilt, worry, love and terror all mixed in one while I wait to see how bad her injury is?
And maybe more importantly how do I make it up to her? How do I show her that she means more to me than anything after being a horrible son and not appreciating her?
