It's a classic Boomer move to think gen Xers don’t already understand the realities of our world. Like ok Boomer, as if your daughter doesn’t already know you cherish your relationship with her not only as a daughter but also as a friend.
And to assume, as your daughter, she owes you her emotional labor by calling more often. Nope try again, fricken Boomer. Just because you raised her into the confident woman she is today by providing her with resources and by being a powerful example of a woman following her dreams in a male-dominated industry does NOT mean she owes you anything. Emotional autonomy is the way the world works now.
Get with it, Boomer.
“But ya, I’m doing well just kind of swamped right now with a bunch of different things. Yes, I love you so much. Ok. Ok. Ok, love you, bye.”
