When Parents Who Gave Up On Their Dreams Project On You

Zoning out

When you talk about your progress—particularly when you become animated and excited—your parent may zone out. You may hear, from the tone of her voice if you’re on the phone, or see, if you’re sitting with her, that she tunes out. She drifts off. She stops paying attention. If she had to kill that part of herself a long time ago—that dreamer who believed great things could happen—then it’s hard for her to listen to that part of you come out.
