“When I am at work all day long that shows in my kids, or in my relationship with my partner.

“If I’m not at work, it shows in me.

“I cry at the end of every day and spend an hour in bed saying, ‘I’ll be better tomorrow, I swear’.

“I’m going to read my parenting manual tonight and everything will be better.’”
