Ah yes, “people” problems. So often, we are faced with them. This piece especially reminds me of my relationship with my mother. It was dysfunctional and toxic, and for many years quite problematic until I chose to stop the effects of her poison from entering into my life as well as my family’s lives. I can’t say the relationship ever got better but it started getting easier. Her death proved to be the time where I could finally not hold a grudge.
