My oldest son was talking about all if the places he wants to visit & maybe live.
**I felt upset (& he could tell), I guess because I thought he wouldn’t be there for me when the time came for me to die, or maybe I was just jealous…I really don’t know.**
I asked when he was going to do that & he said when his youngest graduates high school (in 6 years).
Without thinking, I said, “well, I won’t be here by then anyway.” Such a snarky thoughtless comment.
I still need to apologize.
But I also need to understand where such a nasty comment came from.
I’ve never not supported my sons in whatever they’ve done. They are both wonderful, caring people.
Does anyone have any insight?
