How’s That Working For You?

126. How’s That Working for You?

I’m going to disguise this story. It was told to me probably a year ago and I have thought of it often. The grown son who lived on his own went to lunch with his mother and as they ate he told her that there was something that she was doing in her life that was really upsetting him. She listened carefully and let him talk. When he came to a stop and seemed to have vented, she said, “You know, I hear that you’re upset but I’m a grown person and this is a decision I’ve made after thought and I’m not changing my mind.” He went directly back into his tirade and said, “It makes me angry—it makes me really mad that you’re doing this—I’m not letting go of it because I’m so upset—so enraged!”

She sat quietly and then said, “And how’s that working for you?”
