If you want to offer your children your whole heart but struggle because of your own hurt, I am one of you, too.

If you get up every day and try not to complain and fail, I am one of you, too.

If you feel that the world is so big and you are so small, I am one of you, too.

If you love your children but don't like them sometimes, I am one of you, too.
