The privilege of parenting

There is a difference between dropping your kids, failing them and letting go of your kids, freeing them.
Never picking up your Kids for visitation, not knowing their friends, not taking time to bonding in anyway that’s dropping.
Feels awful to be dropped! Feels awful to drop.
Letting go is being in relationship but giving up the privilege of parenting. Giving up the responsibility of parenting. But still being in relationship.
Trusting that the child may love the relationship but has outgrown being parented. Whether or not you have to poured your whole love your whole life into your children or not it is still so hard to let go. To trust your lovely loving little bird to spread its wings and Fly.
If you truly done your job your little bird is more prepared to fly than your heart can comprehend and the privilege of parenting is well served
