"She was filled with regret before she died. She felt like she’d failed us as a mother tremendously."
"Did she say something to you about it?"
"She never said anything, so I don’t have any tangible proof that she had regrets. But she had a very bad substance abuse problem. And I know she always wanted to be a good mother. So I separate my mom from her disease. I always imagine that my mom and an alcoholic were living in the same body. And I know that my mom loved us. And that she hated the alcoholic."
No more playing games, no more.
We are the Yongs, we don’t cut cakes the conventional way 🔨
My mum turns 21 today, yay! A woman of incredible resilience, adaptability and wisdom - she’s not only street-smart but gorgeous, hardworking, sociable and loyal.
Thank you mum for giving me so much space, freedom and trust to experience my life the way I want to. You have never questioned my decisions and restricted me in any way. This has definitely allowed me to be independent and deal with adversities more confidently.
妈咪，你永远是我最大的靠山 🌄 (at ❤️)
Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.
Daily Haiku on Love by Tyler Knott Gregson #tylerknott
I left this haiku at Toast in Asbury Park at a tiny table for two. Find it and it’s yours, but you have to stay and eat. (at Toast Asbury Park NJ)
