I often receive messages from spouses, some asking for advice, some just wanting to introduce themselves. Recently, I received the email below. This one hit home with me because I can relate to her loneliness and struggle with mental illness. My heart truly went out to her. With her permission, I’ve included her email and my response.
When you have a child, everyone is overly eager to share their oh so wise and unsolicited parenting advice. Some is solid and some just makes you shake your head in disbelief. These are examples of the latter.
