It is funny how generations of women within the same family, often do not communicate, as they should. For me, I believe that I am working toward breaking that bad habit. I, do speak on things with my daughter and our relationship is better for it and most recently with my mother. I feel blessed that I am making an effort to turn things around. You’d never know the day when that person is no longer in your life. Once that day comes, at least one can say from the heart ” no regrets” just good memories.
I find myself in the reflection…what kind of relationship did I have with my family? Some are good and others not so good, but why? Truth? It takes all parties to make an effort for a better relationship and better communication with one another. No judgement!
The one thing that I find myself struggling with on an ongoing basis. I tend to have high expectations of people and see the greater good than the greater bad. So, when that person does not meet the expectation, I get disappointed.
I am working to meet those around me, where they are at in their situation and let the big guy in the sky do the rest. It takes lots of practice and prayer to get to that mindset. It is a life-long process.
If you find yourself in a similar situation, reach out, so within your heart you will find contentment. Know that you made an effort with good faith and love.
