My mom had a talk with me lately and told me that my dad is very hurt by some of the things I’ve said lately. She asked me what was the problem, and to be honest, I have no idea, and I told her this. This has been going on for at least a month. I’m leaving in 10 days for 6 weeks to go and work with some Carmelite Sisters, so I want to do something to mend our relationship. I’ve tried my best to try to make up for some of the stuff I’ve said and done, but it never really seems to be enough. Please pray that I don’t take out my impatience and anxiety on him, especially when he doesn’t deserve it. I would love to just stop, but this didn’t happen overnight, so stopping it will not either. I’ve been to confession for this too, and I will continue to go until it stops. I pray that if something doesn’t happen before I leave, I hope to be better after my absence. As the quote says:
Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
I wrote him a letter when he was on a retreat, apologizing for my actions and telling him that I love him, but he still talked to my mom… :imsorry:
