  • Mood:


I love my parents. I've been having some concerns about communicating with them about life issues. I want a very open communications channel with them: I want to be able to share what is going on in my life. The only two alternatives I see are being quite closed about what is going on and only sharing what I think will be non-problematic. I've decided that I'm personally not interested in the only sharing non-problematic stuff approach.

Last night, I set down with them and explained my concerns. It turns out that most of my concerns ended up being stupid misunderstandings. We worked through the one real issue I had and then discussed what was going on in my life. It was great to be able to share what's going on with my parents as I would friends. I've mostly been able to do that previously but had not been able to do so for a while.

Sadly I could not sleep last night very well. Goal for today is to get to the airport as it opens and try to go standby on an earlier flight.
