Dear TéO, I’m wondering how to be with my parents. I need a different relationship from the one that I have now. One that is not predicated on me having to always be listening to complaints and issues. One where she is not centered only on herself. One where she cares about what is happening in our lives and what is important to us matters.

A two-way, fun to hang out with, mother/daughter relationship, rather than the one where the only conversations are centered on her life, her work, her problems and her accomplishments. I want to be able to talk about mundane things- and have her actually focus and pay attention to me.

Thank you TéO for letting me articulate this. I now know, and I am going to trust that you will present opportunities for me to have this experience and also show me how this will unfold.

TéO is my name for God. But it is also interchangeable with my my guardian angels who send me messages, answer my questions and often take over my writing. This explains italics, pull quotes, headers and tense person changes. I’ve attempted to differentiate Their thoughts and words from mine. Learning to Let Go and Let Go(d). Trusting Surrender.
