Dear Youth Ambassadors,
These past 3 or 4 years, my mom hasn’t been there for me. My birthday was a few days ago and she called me crying asking if we could restart. I told her yes, but I don’t really know how to start off fresh again. What should I say or do?
To start fresh the first thing you need to do is let the past go. It’s going to be hard, but you have to. Also don’t hold a grudge because that’s going to stop you from moving forward. Lastly, let your feelings out and tell her how you’ve been really feeling. Also tell her the things that she needs to work on and ask her something you should work on. When talking to your mother, you can never blame her fully for what has happened. Starting fresh is really hard but you can’t let nothing hold you back. Before you start fresh, these are some things you should do.
Your fellow YA
Starting off fresh again will be kind hard knowing you haven’t seen her in a while. Someone that close being gone away from you is kinda heartbreaking. That’s somebody that should always be there, have your back, and make sure you’re straight at all times. Get your feelings out first so that she can know how you feel so she can have an understanding of how you feel and have a quick timing to speak back. It won’t hurt getting back with someone who brought you into this world and love them everyday how you used to.
Give it your best
