Happy New Year! 2024 is upon us, and it’s prime time for setting goals that you will surely hold yourself to in the coming year. For some of you, that might mean limiting contact with your family. For others, it could mean finally going to therapy to learn how to hold your own in a contentious conversation with your mom. If things are going badly enough, you might finally choose to go entirely no-contact with certain family members. I support whatever you need to do to help yourself be happier and more at peace going into 2024.
While those goals might be what you’re aiming toward, they aren’t always easy. Some people kick and scream at the mere notion that they might have treated their family members badly enough for them to want to limit contact. If you’re interested in seeing some of that kicking and screaming for your entertainment, these parenting texts might be a little bit relatable.
