I am going to get very raw and real with all 3 of you out there. Homeschooling hurts. This is the truth.
I have to say that I have so much anger and hurt inside me because society at large, LDS ward members, neighbors, strangers and most family give me unfriendship, unacceptance, disdain, hatred and unsupport for all the hard work, determination, diligence and intelligence I put into homeschooling. I noticed it at the concert last night. My nephew and my sister get all of this support and love that I do not get and will never get. It is so unfair.
I know we are not supposed to covet, but I covet the support, friendship, love and social acceptance my sister and my nephew get that we will never get. I think all I would have to do is enroll my kids in public school and all of the praise, adoration, support, comeraderie, acceptance and love would roll right in.
Last night during the concert, I just prayed and prayed for help with this.
If you are a homeschool mom, do you ever feel this?
