Trying to Be Supportive
About the Guest
I heard from a listener who was struggling with her mom's serious relationship. "My dad died five years ago," she said. "Even though I'm happy for my mom, I'm not comfortable with her new relationship, but I'm trying to be supportive." I don't care how old you are, when a parent dates or marries, it dramatically changes your life in many unwanted ways. I appreciate her attitude. But this doesn't necessarily make the adjustments easy. It does bring a grace to the equation and that always helps.
Ron, I’m an adult and my mom is dating a guy and I’m having a rough time with it.
