"My children need to move out!"
Shaking and in tears, Jami realized the only way to turn her toxic nest back into a home was to tell her children. Although they weren't children anymore. Her daughter had moved back three years earlier with her four children, and her son had been living at home as he struggled through an unexpected divorce. But she needed them to get on with their own lives.
Jami’s son exploded at the news; her daughter’s silence was almost harder to take. And it didn’t get easier. While her daughter focused on her college studies and reconciled with her husband, Jami’s son lost his car and couch-surfed until he ended up in the hospital when his diabetes spiraled out of control.
A year later, with all of them on their way to better lives, Jami’s daughter delivered a message: "Mom, you did the right thing!"
Has negativity grounded your goals? Surrounded by people who can’t wait to tell you what’s wrong in the world, you’ve let these passive-aggressive folks convince you that your cup will never be anything but half-full. And they’re the first to tell you all the reasons you’ll never succeed when you even breathe hope of making a positive change.
Or maybe you are your own worst enemy. Are you still beating yourself up for something that happened in your past? Have you decided, contrary to the truth that we are all created for a purpose and destined for greatness, that you’re beyond help?
