Always learning hows
Being a mom of a teenager…
— I know nothing —
But the key I think is exactly what you said — do less — no sudden movements. Be steady, something they can count on for sure,
like the damn faucet in the bathroom that hasn’t stopped running in months or the food in the fridge always expired.
They will hate you when they need to and if they do you’re lucky because it means they trust you to love them and their asshole selves as much as you love their true ones.
At least that’s what I’m telling myself today.
Loved this piece.
