Remember something important you’ve lost.
I use to have a good relationship with my daughter. It seems to have been lost for a number of reasons. One reason is that I converted to Islam. The fact that she doesn’t understand that has made her wary of me and my attitudes. Another reason is her marriage to my son-in-law. She understandably has allegiance to her new husband, but she seems to have given up her right to think clearly on her own and listen only to what he says. And what he says is often not worth much. He too is suspicious of my conversion to Islam and he dislikes me, for which reasons I do not know. But it has served to drive a wedge between my daughter and me and we have lost the close relationship that we once shared. She keeps things from me, even things so mundane as the fact as she installed a swimming pool at her house. Of course, she may not have wanted me to know since she owed me money on a loan I made to her and she has not repaid. It’s sad that we are not close anymore. We used to talk daily. Not we hardly ever talk and I haven’t seen her for months even though we live 3 miles from one another. I feel bad about this relationship that I’ve lost. I wish I could regain it but it’s doubtful that this will happen. So sad.
