I’m trying to be the very best auntie for you guys, but some days my depression and anxiety get in the way. As my nieces and neohews, you are my world, the reasons I smile randomly in the middle of the day, and the light at the end of the tunnel. That’s why it breaks my heart to know I’ve let you guys down more times than I can count.
No matter how hard this life gets, you are my pride and joy. I put you above everything else and make you my #1 priority, even if people don’t always see it. There have been days I’ve promised to FaceTime or promised to stop by with a treat and I ended up getting so lost in my thoughts that I forgot.
It doesn’t mean I love you any less or that your time isn’t important to me, it’s just that sometimes my world feels a little heavier than most. I want to be your aunt that you brag about to all your friends, but I know I’m not always that person.
