Ask the Eye.Strike The Prose

June 10, 2010

Dear Eye View,
My mother died almost 30 years ago, when I was a teenager. I have put her on a pedestal and tried to live my life making her proud. I tell my kids about the grandmother they never met and even gave my daughter her name. Recently we helped my father move from his house into an apartment. My father sent us home with a truckload of furniture and some personal items that belonged to my mother. While sorting through them, I came across her diary. Yes, I read it. It turns out she was never proud of my accomplishments and always thought I was up to no good. For nearly three decades, I have mourned the loss of my mother and been very sentimental about her. I now have mixed emotions. I hope that she is watching from heaven and is proud of me today. However, I now know she went to her grave thinking I was a disappointment. How do I deal with this? I don’t want to live the rest of my life feeling as I do today.—Crushed

Dear Crushed,

I didn’t know your mother, but maybe she was a good judge of character..Also, maybe the view from Heaven is not that different.. Post the letter on the Internet, send to People Magazine, call Oprah, and get over it. Hope this help..
