She’s 15 now, right? I’m sorry, Heather. I gave my Mom a bit of a struggle when I was around that age, but the whole of me would tell you it was quite validated. I had to deal with A LOT with her.
I want to say she’s a bit strong-willed, unafraid to speak her mind (which she has honest), but I think she’s also at the age where most teens don’t know or understand when their parents are most fragile and need a freaking break. I never considered the broken pieces of my Mother when we argued, never in those moments, only as I got older did I try to understand why… she was the way she was. Lemme tell you, it put a beating on my emotions to do that.
That meant, I had to figure out why I was the way I was.
You’re most welcome. He’s got your back, that’s for sure. And, I feel like he’s the calm for her too. I think I’ve said this before to you, she’ll let up… in time. I’m really praying that she does. *big hugs*
