LEARNING TO EXPRESS SADNESS INSTEAD OF ANGER


As a footnote – but not a footnote in my heart; it is part of the main text of my life – for the first time my mother said to me on the morning I was leaving – I am very sad today. Generally, she would quarrel with me the day before I am to leave. Quarreling was her way of breaking with me so she wouldn’t have to feel sad about my leaving. Now her consciousness is in her heart and she can admit to herself, and me, that she is sad. How much subterfuge we make (is the correct word?) in keep from admitting and acknowledging our sadness! I feel that if we could do so, we could prevent wars, and a lot of heartache.
