I always try to be optimistic and positive in almost every situation. I’m constantly trying to find the good or the lesson to be learned in situations that we face on a daily basis. I believe that everything happens for a reason, sometimes we know right away, other times it make take us months or even years to realize what that reason was.
Being the mother of a teenager, it’s not easy to see eye to eye. He’s changing everyday and some days are better than others. Today was a rough day for both of us, thankfully no one lost too much control. We had a very good conversation about what it’s like to be a teenager, and the things he’s going through.
It was a great opportunity for us to talk and see where each of us stood and try to understand the other’s point of view. I consider our silver lining for today. We don’t always understand each other but there’s always room to try.
