Dear Gra­ham

What do you want to ask your daugh­ter? Are there things you think she should know? It might be best to write to her. Don’t send her the first draft. Leave it for a week and then re-read it to make sure it has the tone and in­for­ma­tion that you want it to have. There may be two sides to ev­ery story, but for what­ever rea­son your daugh­ter ob­vi­ously feels that your hus­band’s ver­sion of events is more cred­i­ble than yours. Think about that.

Don’t be so quick to dis­miss her opin­ions and re­ac­tions as ridicu­lous. Why did she call the po­lice? Why is she so fright­ened of what you might do? Work­ing through the dif­fi­cult re­la­tion­ships in your life isn’t go­ing to be easy, but it will be im­pos­si­ble if you aren’t com­pletely hon­est with your­self. Look in the mir­ror – and be will­ing to ac­cept that you may not like what you see.
