About This Quote

I’ve been trying to deepen my relationship with my mother for a long time. Over the years I tried all sorts of techniques, such as telling her that she is brilliant and that I appreciate her. It didn’t work. So, I started to tell her that she is brilliant and that I appreciate her all the time.

The minute those words left my mouth, I felt an immediate release of tension. The next day, I told her that she is brilliant and I appreciate her and there was another release of tension. Soon, it became a habit and we would both tell each other we are brilliant and we appreciate each other all the time.

The words themselves were never important enough to make us release the tension we were carrying inside. What was happening was that we were making the tension our own by thinking it over and over again.
