As I mentioned in a previous post about possession, I really DO believe that children are only lent to us.
Yes, they are our children forever or at least until either of us passes on, but they are NOT our possessions.
I love my children more than I could have ever imagined loving anyone. I loved them more than my ex husband, which is probably why he is just that…ex. Regardless, this is about ownership. We can own ourselves, we can own property, but we can’t own others. It’s not possible. We can belong to groups, but not to another, since in a sense, because it also implies ownership on the part of another. So, this is my declaration of freedom. Freedom from ownership. In all senses.
