For the past nine years, I have been in and out of work. My 18-year-old daughter and I have been through everything together. The other day she said, “Mom, when you get angry, the volcano rumbles, then explodes, sparkles start flying, and the whole village is burned.”
I was so angry because she said, “You’re going to have to start doing things on your own.” She has never had to work. I was unclear where these feelings were coming from. When I heard her say, “We are always broke, we never have money, you always ask me to do everything, and you can’t pay the bills,” I was heart broken. It hurt to my core. So, I wanted to hurt her. I called her terrible names and she moved out. She is an amazing person. I do love her, but I felt betrayed. I felt hurt by those words and my intention was to hurt her.
My hope is that the plane has not crashed. I hope I still have time to pull it up and we can begin to soar again. I miss her!
