Good afternoon, Dear Readers!
I need to rant a little today..
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard things like, “That’s your MOTHER! She’s the only one you’ll ever have!” or, “She won’t be around forever!” or other unasked for advice in telling me what *I* need to do to improve the abusive relationship between my mother & I.
Is it just me? I’m going to go out on a limb here & guess it isn’t just me..
Isn’t it infuriating, feeling like all of the responsibility of a relationship is on you?! Oh my word!!! I flippin’ hate that! Relationships are a two way street. There is a lot of give & take. It doesn’t matter if that relationship is parent/child, family, friendship or romantic. All relationships are give & take. There is nowhere in the Bible that says children must tolerate abuse from their parents. The only verse I’ve found says that children should honor their parents, & no where does the word honor equal being a punching bag or doormat or recipient of abuse. It simply means giving your parents their due respect for giving you life. Period. For further information on this topic, I have written some free ebooks on the topics.
