Parental Psyche Games
My son completed a stay at a treatment facility in the woods of NH.
I picked him up today and we had a nice conversation in the car on the way home. He looks good and sounds good. No pink clouding on either of our parts.
As we traveled homeward, I simply shut my mouth and listened. (No easy task) I refrained from the “doesn’t it feel good to be sober conversation” followed by my usual “look at how chaotic your life gets” chaser. He is healthier, a bit wiser, and he seems to get it. I don’t think my 2-cent psyche games will really have an effect on his disease. I have learned a few things over the years.
I simply enjoyed his health today. As parents we must learn to put our “games” away.
peace and strength!
