Not having expectations nor holding grudges #peaceofmind

Not having expectations nor holding grudges #peaceofmind

It feels so weird to come back to France. Honestly, I thought I would never go back.

Sometimes France gets on my nerves. However, I feel I made peace with it, by seeing it through the eyes of non-French people.

Then I realized that if I was so upset with France, it was because it did not protect me when I needed it. France was not there for me because it did not take me seriously. It did not protect me children nor me.

Nevertheless, today I feel that the pain I experienced came from having expectations. I was certain that my “country” (if such a term means anything, which I doubt) would protect me.

The best thing is not having expectations as they say in the Four agreements. To avoid disappointment. And feel free.

I am not a perfect mother but I really do my best. Many times I am blown away by the intelligence and depth of my children insights. My son is known to be on the angry side by his teachers and rightfully so (stuff happened). However, as they say in the Four agreements, my job is to not take things personally. Even more so when my son said to me that all he is trying to do is to help me and please me. Indeed, behind his angry mask lies the most amazing pure love of a child.
