I now see and accept the truth but it hurts. I can’t tell my family how to love me. Lord, ease my pain and give me the serenity that acceptance should bring. I accept that I cannot make them love me in the way that I think they should. I see that I’ve been crying out about that which is. Let me truly detach with love. Take away bitterness and self pity. I pray for the serenity that acceptance will bring.
