forgiveness will lead to freedom from bitterness and anger. Yes, it will take time, the right time. But the longer we delay forgiveness, the longer the burden to carry, release those heavy extra baggages thru forgiving and feeling will be lighter.
Parents never mean to hurt their children. It's often just an expression of their own frustration with something they feel unable to do anyting about after exhausting all the things they know to try. Parents are not perfect!!
Its best to take responsibility for your own actions (hard too). Said another way...We can do little about the way that other treat us in life.....we can only treat others as we would hope to be treated. Bittterness and Anger are emotions that do no good to anyone. If you feel mistreated it is likely a matter of perspective or a reflection of the hurt you too have inflicted. Oneday when you are in a similar postition in life as your parents your perspective will have changed. You might have more appreciation for them.
Nobody pushes someone to death....people always have free-will. Poeple also have the chance to start with nothing and to reinvent themselves if they so dare. And if faced with threats of death...on can look death in the eye if they know they've honestly lived good and have done their part in life. There is no fear if you've done that.
But if you could reinvent yourself today....would it be with Bitterness, contempt, vidictiveness? I'm guessing the answer would be no.
I have a poem for anyone thinking of commiting suicide....its on my blog.
HAVE YOU BEEN DOING YOUR PART????
Love your parents
Honor your father and mother
Treat others as you would have them treat you
Turn The Other Cheek
I promise, if you do your part....things will improve dramatically for you. And even if not, you'll feel good about yourself for trying honestly.
Anyway....this is just friendly advice from someone whose been there. Not intended to rock your boat Honestly I feel compassion for anyone hurting enough to write what you've written and talking about suicide.
By the way....great poem.....I know those are honest heartfelt emotions and I hope what I wrote helps you look at things just a little differently. I've been through the same feelings....but I was the oldest son
My dad and me are good friends now. It took me being a father to understand.
Uptown...I look to the tags you added to this heartwrenching poem...
please tell me you are just penning in your hidden feelings..and you aren't thinking of suicide....you look old enough to leave your Parents house and rules..you are what? Early 20's? Get a FULL_TIME job and move from there! YOUR BEST YEARS are yet to come! Now pull your boots up by the straps get working and get out...make a home for yourself...Enjoy your life!! And get busy writing your poetry book! Get it published and let me know...I'll buy one!!
Good Luck with your future...I KNOW YOU have a BRIGHT ONE! ((Hugs))
