I’m about to begin my last semester of undergrad and things are about to be super busy. My mom recently went through a few slip-ups with her alcohol addiction, and my siblings and I teamed up to help her find some solutions.
I want to keep up to date with her progress on how she’s doing with her progress, and give her a call every now and then, but I don’t want to bring up the subject so much that it makes my mom feel annoyed or sad. At the same time, I don’t want to let my anxiety over the subject prevent me from going weeks without checking in, which I’ve done in the past.
How do you build the courage to really connect with your loved one about their hardships? How often should I be reaching out?
