    Fathers are said to be the only men who want to see you do better then them. The best way to honor them is to do just that. A father seeing his seed succeed is the greatest feeling after all the investment and sacrifice they put into you. Even in their absence you can rest assured that they would want the best for you and that is some fuel to continue bettering yourself into the best version you can be.

  2. Our parents had more time for parenting. I fear that the next generation will be raised by tbe internet and absent parents who are busy working to ensure you get everything you want, without knowing that the thing you need tbe most is their love and presence.

  3. You always know how best to act at that moment. 😌 They may be back because of a need or because they genuinely want to make it up to you. Make sure you are aware of the reason and decide how to react based on your assessment. One rule is to always forgive them regardless of what they did but you doRead more

    You always know how best to act at that moment. 😌 They may be back because of a need or because they genuinely want to make it up to you. Make sure you are aware of the reason and decide how to react based on your assessment. One rule is to always forgive them regardless of what they did but you do not have to let them back into your life if they are negative and can cause more trouble than good. A good way to check this is by asking your siblings whose judgment you trust or even giving them time because sooner or later the true colors are revealed. Meanwhile be careful as you may not know how to draw the line when it comes to family.

    Parents can be as toxic as bad relationship partners. Dealing with them is harder because you can’t replace them. That’s how the very toxic parents get away dealing with them is not advised. If your parents are abusive, you don’t have any business dealing with them in any way. You could put your life in danger just beacuse you want to care. Count your losses and focus on your life. Focus on being a better parent to your own children or a better partner to your spouse, instead of trying to fix a relationship with your parents that was broken years ago when you were still young. Sometimes there is hope and the parents might change but that is not your responsibility, it is up to them to become better people and make it up to you.

  5. Family is simtumes the only people who you can depend on without them asking for anything in turn. This has made some family members take that blood relation privilege too far.

    Family is simtumes the only people who you can depend on without them asking for anything in turn.

    This has made some family members take that blood relation privilege too far. They can be so toxic and there’s very little you can do to avoid them when you live in the same house or have to see each other often.

    You can always get friends who are closer than family and they can be your support system when your real family is not available.

  6. Eating meals together. We waited for everyone so we can start eating. It was common practice to make calls to check how far people are as soon as meals got ready. This translated to always calling people to check up on them even when they weren't home because you thought of them every time you sat dRead more

    Eating meals together. We waited for everyone so we can start eating. It was common practice to make calls to check how far people are as soon as meals got ready. This translated to always calling people to check up on them even when they weren’t home because you thought of them every time you sat down for a meal. Now, as an adult, seating down for a meal is an integral part of bonding….food is my love language 😂

    Most of our parents grew up in colonial times and did not have the privileges we have right now. We will probably be the kind of parents who spoil their children. The issue about love and how we feel is not fully dependent of parents. I know people who have low self esteem and yet had the best parenthood, white there are people who had the worst upbringing and yet have the best of hearts.
