Will someone please explain

…why it is that when my kids hurt, my heart breaks, over and over again?

And how the blinkety-blimin’-‘eck  I’m supposed to stop it, or do something about it?

I can’t bear it when they hurt — emotionally as much as if not more so than physically.It creates a black hole inside me, that sucks all the life and positivity out of me, and i just want to hold them and rock the pain away. You know, as if they’d even let me near.

Oy. Help.
