Some of you may watch Bravo’s reality series, Bethenny Getting Married; where Bethenny Frankel has let us into her personal life; only to see that we too are not the only ones that have a crazed life.
Giving us the hope we too can just make some sense of it all and end up having what we desire!
Watching re-runs last night, I swear her relationship with her estranged father was also scripted for me, for I also am currently experiencing the same with my estranged father.
Here I was also summoned to be present and actually began speaking again with my ailing father. An unbelievable emotional roller coaster it has been, one day you are fine and the next day you are shaking your head in pure confusion; for you never think that you a grown woman now can ask the questions or better yet get the answers you will need.
For some of you; there may be good relationships and then not so good relationships with your parents, for me not so good… where I find myself wondering what to do next; even though this thing call “be responsible” has creeped into my crazy life as it is! Perhaps to add; you may have sibling rivalries that may surface to who, what, where and how…. leaving you to wonder!
For me, there are no siblings, just me! He is the only parent remaining!
So this morning when having breakfast with one of my besties (girlfriend); she asked how was I feeling about the whole situation. I’d replied by saying instead of thinking of what has happened in the past, I am really focusing on what I can do now.
There’s this inner belief that the things that should be said, will be said – but in all honesty…they might never be! So where does that leave me, to give the greatest gift to myself, is to FORGIVE.
Forgiveness is my way to release all the frustrations and accepting what it is; just for me. I’d decided to be really alright with it and keep continuing on my path with what truly matters to me.
Somehow, Bethenny’s story really gave me the clarity that we all are going through similar but different situations in our lives (different meaning the outcomes will not be the same and the relationships with are parents are just different).
The key is to remember that I should always have MY best interest in mind and because, I trust my instincts… in the days ahead, I am going to make ways to visit, show concern and show the acts which displays forgiveness (actions speak louder than words).
So thanks Bethenny for being open; it really helped me a lot! Although we may review her life as entertainment, but it is still very personal – sharing and allowing us to see; should no be taken lightly. For those going through also a similar situation; I thought I too can share and kindly state to do what’s best for you (whatever that may be).
