Relationship with boss

Hi Brooke & team! Working on this month’s relationships has been deeper than I thought. I have had very difficult relationship with both my parents. My relationship with my mom has been rocky at best with lots of mental abuse and neglect and now I can honestly say I feel empathy and love and can even see how she does the best she can with what she has.

Sooo this relationship of years from which I feel so healed. How come I am able to do this, yet I can’t seem to find a way to at least be neutral about my boss (another of this month’s relationships). I try to understand where he is coming from and that it is about him not me. But what my brain understands as unacceptable behaviour from his part. I also want to heal this relationship and stop the pattern of repeating this kind of person in my life. Help!

Thank you!
