I recently had a conversation with a friend who’s birthday is coming up. Her kids are grown and she’s dealing with some serious empty nest syndrome challenges.
Question: Should I be upset that my husband and kids made other plans that didn’t include me over my birthday weekend?
Answer: As my niece once said, “communication is the key.” You have to tell them what you need. In the perfect world, they would just read your mind but this isn’t a perfect world so you’ll have to tell them what you need from them…and maybe throw in that you miss them and that you really wanted to spend time with them over your birthday weekend
