It’s unusual in our family to have phone calls with each other just to ask questions like, “how was your day?” or “how are you?” It’s something we admit we’re not comfortable with. Normally we would call if we have questions or we need assistance but never just to check up on each other. We could die in awkwardness. Haha. We were never the expressive type. That’s my kind of normal.
Indeed, it would be a real struggle to try new things if it’s not part of the culture you grew up with. But I am learning to always remain hopeful. It’s also something I want to improve on as I start my own family. Well, last night my dad called me, mostly to rant. Haha. It was the second time he called me during this ECQ. Before he ended the call, I heard him say “I love you”. I said “I love you” back.
