Teenagers

Saturday, November 29, 2014

My daughter turns 13 the day after Christmas and she's more then a little in the zoom with the attitude that comes with it. She hurt me dearly last night. And today I have no desire to even be around her. I did something smart though. I worked out this morning. My excuse was to get out of the house and not be around her. But who cares, I still worked out. I'm still hurt. I'm still sad, but at least I didn't turn to food instead of a healthier choice.

    Woot woot emoticon for you and going to workout instead of stuffing the feeling with food. You just taught her a valuable lesson. I try to remember that I have had a hand in how my girls treat me. I don't excuse bad behaviour, but I am mindful of their age and I remember too, my years in those tumultuous hormonal times.
    Coming on this site helps a great deal...so much to learn. emoticon
    I find that the things that hurt the most are often the things that hold some truth. I try to use the experience to grow and make myself a better person. Usually it takes some time to work through the hurt before you can see how to use it to your benefit.
    It's all life right....the good the bad the ugly and the great. It's all in what we want to make of it emoticon

    I can relate to hurtful teenagers sister. I am so sorry that you are going to have to deal with this. But, unfortunately in this day and time teenagers feel like they are entitled to everything these days. I tried to teach my niece that she had to work for what she wanted in life, that nothing was for free. But it was to no avail, she just wanted things her way and when she wanted something she was very immature, she wanted it right then and now.

    You will have to stand firm with her and not let her see you cry. Be strong, do not argue with her. Young girls like to draw you into an argument. That is one of the worse things that you can let her do to you. I would like to advise you, before the problem gets worse to seek out counseling for the both of you.

    I really care about you and I am so proud of you that you chose exercise over food. That is such a positive step and the first sign of becoming a Life Changer for good.
