Well, it's been 5 days since I sincerely expressed my deepest feelings, angers, resentments and concerns to my daughter in a calm, rational and kind way. I said what needed to be said, she heard me. Perhaps that's the first time we've done that in years and years, given so much anger on both sides. I'm not sure I've ever been that honest with her. I think something has shifted for both of us. I have simply let go, I am not asking, controlling, inquiring, nothing. She is staying mostly in the tent, although does join us sometimes for meals. She is very quiet. I am very quiet. Not in the angry truce kind of way, in a new, uncharted territory way. It's a little uncomfortable (just because it's so different) but it feels right. I have a strong intuitive hunch that this has to be like this now, me just surrendering to what is, she in the quiet without having to resist me, or anything. I don't know for sure, but it feels right. It feels like that old adage I've heard about growth, 'as you close one door behind you, and before another door opens, you're in the hallway.' The void. Has anyone experienced anything like this? I'd be interested in your input, as always.
