My adult son and I were having a conversation and it went something like this:
I said to him, “… blah, blah, blah and I know that you like those….”
His immediate response, “You don’t know me!”
My reflexive/guarded/motherly answer, “Of course I know you, I AM your mother!”
And THAT is when I GOT IT!
I do NOT know him.
I ONLY know me!
Can you fathom/wrap your brain around that? Your best friend, spouse, child, neighbors… whom you think you ‘know’ so blooming well, you really do not/cannot fully know them.
Nor do they know you…..
