My greatest worry,
To make a mistake.
From the carefree child,
Who got shouted at so much,
I have grown in an adult they wanted,
An adult who thinks,
But thinks too much.
This thinking is what paralysis me now,
The need to only do the right thing is what stalls me,
So often I end up doing nothing at all.
This is something I thought of this morning, while contemplating on my parental style. A realisation which will make a very different parent now.
