  1. Hi Patty, just came across your blog tonight and so grateful to have found you. I love your raw honesty, something that I have not been able to do yet, as I just started my blog about a month ago. Putting your vulnerability after being hurt so much takes guts, and I want to get there but for me I have found when I show my vulnerability, I lose, get hurt, my heart gets broken and I feel weak. This has been a pattern for me for my whole life, the walls are up now and I hope I can get them down. So you inspire me and I know there is a reason I found you tonight. You are a very brave and talented young lady and I look forward to discovering more about you through your beautiful poetry, writing and photography and your artwork!!! When I read ‘My Child’ I had to reblog it as it resonated so deeply for me. My children are my gifts, have taught me so much and kept me going when at times I don’t know if I would have if not for them. Hugs, xo Cathy

    • Hey Cathy,
      Nice to meet you.
      I know exactly what you mean. It’s so hard to open up your heart and soul when you get hurt so much.
      My walls have been up for a very long time. They protected me from getting hurt, but they also made me quite numb.
      Through writing I managed to let them down and show the real me. And I must say, I like myself a lot better now!
      It’s still hard. I am still fighting to keep the walls down. It’s just much easier to hide sometimes you know?
      I hope you will managed to free yourself from the walls as well. Stay strong!
      Lots of love
      Patty

      • Hi Patty! So great to hear from you! Thank you so much and I appreciate your wise words. You sure hit the nail on the head when you said it made you quite numb. I get that and it’s time for me to start…breaking the walls down. Slowly…..slowly! It is much easier to hide! I will stay strong and I look forward to chatting again!! Have a great weekend!!
        Sending hugs and love,
        Cathy xo

      • It sure is a constant battle against those walls!
        Carefully let them down so you can enjoy your life to the full.

  2. Reblogged this on CATSHIELDS – Before and After and commented:
    Being a mother to 3 amazing children, 30, 29 and 13, and watching them grow into the beautiful souls that they are, I have always said, they are the the light off my life, the best thing I ever did and have taught me so much!! So while reading Patty’s blog that I just discovered, I stumbled upon this beautiful piece of poetry she wrote on being a parent. I had to reblog it as it pulled at my heart strings. Thank you Patty!! Looking forward to following your beautiful blog.
