      How kindness from someone I met by chance has changed my life, my boyfriend's mother has reached out an olive branch and offered me more than I could have even dared to dream. she saw the potential in me as a human being not as someone who is dating her son. She has offered for me to take a step back from my home life allowing me to stay there as I need even when my boyfriend isn't there. this kindness extends past if we break up. Part of her offer is if i need to go over anytime i can text and it'll happen. She offered this to allow me to have the childhood I happened to not have of just how much I cared about others. this completely changed my life and how is because in my childhood and home life, I always took the burden. during my younger childhood as long as I can remember I stopped being a kid and became another parent more worried about them and never gave myself any of the care or child-like play of childhood I was always more worried about everyone else and due to recent medical complications with my mother leaving her completely dependent and wheelchairbound, I've become an in-home caretaker for my parents I've become so engrossed in my parent's life I forgot to live my own life I never allowed myself to join clubs that have club fees because I was worried about our finances, I never wanted to ask for toys or foods that only I would want because I was too worried about them I was like this until she came along and showed me absolute kindness making me feel like my wants are important and that its okay for me to still enjoy the things other kids did when they were younger I cried when I was shown this kindness because while I knew I missed out I never thought I could still have those same things without remorse, I prior to her kindess felt bad and like I was in the wrong for doing anything that wasnt work or taking care of others. just talking to her and taking her offer a few times I've felt a great impact on my life and my drive to live as me, no longer living to just take care of my parents, I've felt more like I could leave when college comes. I still care about my parents and take care of them as much as I can but now I am able to set boundaries over when I'm overwhelmed and I need time away I also trust that they can make it without me catering to their every need.
