Enjoy your trip!
I've never been to the US, but I sure have been in some states!
We can use this as opp to go into the sensations and watch them arise & pass away. Question: is she giving you anxiety or is your interpretation causing you the greater distress? Wondering if it may be a matter of perspective
Whatever mom is doing (nagging, worrying, micromanaging, criticizing, complaining, etc.)... is it her trying to meet her needs the best way she can? Beneath it all, is there love, a need for safety, connection or some other core & beautiful need?
Sometimes the perspective shift can soften our evaluation of a situation or a person's motives. May we all know true peace, true love, true happiness.
You have a training most don't. We can use this not only for our own growth, but for the benefit of others. Guessing she would appreciate your compassion, love, patience, and understanding. Not easy, though, huh?
Claims I won't ever get them back laughed and made fun of me when I was fumbling to find them. Wearing an old pair, not a fan.
Wow, that's not ok. Do you have someone who you both know who you could go back there with? Or who could intercede with you two? It's not ok to let anyone physically assault you. :(
I hope u get that abusive person out of your life. Maybe you should file a police report for stolen property and assault along with a restraining order. Be good to yourself today and treat yourself to a new pair of glasses.
Get that hour in. I'll chant for you (out of tune): Anicca vata sankhara, uppadavaya-dhammino. Uppajjitva nirujjhanti tesam vupasamo sukho...
