This article makes me want to hug you.
I think a lot of people can identify with it because nobody’s parents were perfect. I’m fairly lucky myself in that I still talk to both of mine but they’re still just as flawed as you or I.
I hope you find nice people in your life that can make it happy. There will always be some nice people in the world. They can’t fill all of the gaps but I hope you can work through some of the thoughts that you’re feeling.
Feel free to get in touch if you ever fancy a chat.
