Kellyanne Conway talks about her “operating principle” as a Gen-Xer in a recent Question and Answer in the Washington Post:
“My father left when I was very young. I didn’t meet him until I was 12 or 13. We had no alimony, no child support. He went on to have another family. He’s been married four times. [Now] he’s an active part of our lives, in part because he wants that, and in part because he deserves that. My operating principle as a typical Generation Xer, a child of divorce, is that you don’t pass that on to the next generation. If there’s hurt or there’s pain or there’s regret or there’s been anger and sadness, there’s no reason to pass that on.”
It’s a brilliant comment. I love the last line:
If there’s hurt or there’s pain or there’s regret or there’s been anger and sadness, there’s no reason to pass that on.”
Conway, who was a chief strategist on the Trump campaign has been named Counselor to the President. She was born in January 1967, and just recently turned 50 recently.
On being a typical Gen Xer who married later, had divorced parents, focused on education & career. https://t.co/EjKMgtNiT4
