HOW DO I STOP MY PARENTS FROM FIGHTING?

DEAR DALI MAMA:

My parents fight all the time. They fight about a lot of stuff. Sometimes they fight about me. How can I stop this?

–Tired Out (United States)

DEAR TIRED OUT:

It is very difficult to keep other people from fighting, particularly when they’re your parents. Perhaps what you can focus on for now is how you handle their fighting. Are you taking on responsibility for their fighting, especially when they fight about you? If so, recognize that their fighting ultimately has nothing to do with you, even if you or subjects related to you seem to be a point of contention between them. Even if you were elsewhere, I guarantee you they would be fighting anyway.

You might also want to use this opportunity to delve and live in a space of your own inner peace, no matter what the people around you are doing. Do this and maybe just a little bit of this may rub off on the people around you. Maybe, maybe not, but you will ultimately be healthier and happier this way.

Much peace and love to you on your journey.
