Mending the fence between a mother and daughter can begin anytime you choose. Teenage behavior and its unpredictable ups and downs will always be the case. This would be especially true if she suffers from O.D.D. (oppositional defiant disorder) or bipolar disorder. Even as unpredictable as our daughters can be, Mom can begin to be the predictable one in the relationship though. She can allow her daughter to rest in the knowledge that no matter what her mistakes have been, the love for her daughter will never change. That is so comforting to me. I love saying that to my children. Their eyes light up with a sense of security knowing that they are accepted just the way they are and they are not required to be perfect in order for me to love them. I may not love their behavior or actions, but I will always love them.
If you feel like you are ambivalent about whether or not you remain married, dont just straddle the fence. Take stock of your relationship and what would make it better. Evaluate what you could do to change the relationship.
A little boy, prone to anger, was told by his father, Every time youre angry, drive a nail in that wooden fence. When youve learned to control your anger, start removing them. Six months later, the boy had removed every nail he had driven. Triumphant, he showed the fence to his father. The father sadly pointed out, See the holes? The fence will never be the same.
