#1. I was angry with my mother because she asked the Universe for a certain farmhouse, but when it immediately showed up, she refused it! I was really irritated because it was obvious to me that she was rejecting the very thing she had prayed for. I hate it when people do that. Well, it turns out I was wrong. Again. The next house was even better and has a gorgeous in-ground swimming pool. If I end up staying with them past October 1st, they offered me a lovely bedroom with a very large closet.
#2. I have written at least a half a dozen posts complaining about the disrespectful way my mother speaks to me and how it hurts my feelings. Well, she went too far and I decided to move out even if I ended up back in the homeless shelter. I slept on it and in the morning, I told my mother exactly why her words to me were unacceptable and full of hate. Tears started rolling down my cheeks. I never raised my voice or spoke harsh words. It was actually a very clear example of me learning to set boundaries and learning to tell my abusers that I will no longer tolerate being treated with disrespect, even though that it how it always used to be.
Well, my parents went out and bought me a cartful of kosher food, something that was important to me and that they do not understand in the least. It was very touching. Then my mother came into my room and asked me to please forgive her and she put her arms around me in an embrace. It was the sweetest gesture and so sincere. How often do we hear those words: “I’m sorry I hurt you. Please forgive me.” She really is a good woman.
Since I spoke up, both my mother and my step-father have been so kind to me that I came right out and asked them why. I said, “Why are you being so nice to me? Are you going to ask me for a kidney later?”
My dad laughed and told me to get a job. Now they are being very kind to me and I to them. It feels good.
