Unfinished business

What unfinished business do you have? Unfinished business is an event or an emotion of the past that is affecting you currently even when you are not aware.

I had to stop to think of this. Naturally, my mother came to mind. She strongly favored my brother over me for as long as I can remember. I have always felt incomplete, unimportant and unworthy. I have not spoken to my mother and brother for around 15 years. Has it really been that long? My boyfriend has offered to help repair this relationship and I doubt it could be done but on the other hand, it sure would be nice to close the door on this issue.

When my son was a toddler I had two separate babysitters that I was unable to pay. Many years later I sent them checks in the mail for an amount much more than I really owed due to the fact that it had been years since the job was performed. I felt (and still feel) bad for not paying them as promised but I feel I made up for it. It does feel good to close *that* door.

What unfinished business do you have? Is it something you can resolve?

One thought on “Unfinished business

  1. What you do was really honest and kind. I’m sure they appreciated whatever you gave them. I have a lot of unfinished business, too. I have a lot of relationships that I want to work on. Nice post.
