MICRO-AGGRESSION – Charade or Truth

A year later and this is still a burning issue with our son and his girlfriend (specifically that we have a history of racism and manipulation).
We want to welcome his girlfriend with open arms to our family – and we’ve been trying to do this. She is a beautiful and intelligent girl. When they’re ready to make babies – they will be so cute! 😛
However, today my husband and I are going to a counselling session. I’m not sure whether it is to work out strategies about how to deal with this situation – or teach us that we’re wrong. But it is at the request of this couple.
They haven’t yet answered my request for specific examples of what we’ve said or the way we’ve acted that has made them uncomfortable, to help us identify areas for discussion with the counsellor. Anyway! 😦
It means that in our discussion with the Counsellor, it will be all from our side and therefore unbalanced and if she only hears our side of things, she’s not going to fix us! 😀
Please don’t come back and rant at them – they’re young and trying to find their way (I guess). 😀 xx

RANDOM THOUGHTS by Trish

Hello again! Well, I’ve been on an up and down emotional roller coaster since early August 2015, when my beloved youngest son and his girlfriend thought to take offense at a comment I made on my Facebook page.

I was in a new town, having relocated from country Western Australia to NSW and was looking for a beauty therapist.

They seem to be particularly Thai in cultural background and one day I walked into a salon looking for someone to do a manicure and pedicure.

I entered the premises, to find several women and some children seated on the floor and sharing a meal or snacks. There was no sign of the typical beauty salon paraphernalia – you know what I mean? Products, seating…

  1. I’ll be very interested to hear what the therapist comes back with. Without a true idea of what you have supposedly done wrong and without your son and his girlfriend to give over their side of the story, what advice can you and Eric really be given?
    I am trying very hard not to rant back at them Trish; but to me it sounds like there are bigger issues that your son needs to deal with than deflecting it back at you two.
    Much love and take care, all of our children push our boundaries, if only to achieve some sense of reassurance that they will always be loved and wanted by us. And I thought adulthood would be so much easier…..
    Please keep me posted with the outcome.
    Lots of love xxxxxxxxxxxx
