Happy Wednesday! Many times, we blame our childhood for our current mistakes in life. Yes, your childhood did impact your life. Yes, your childhood contributed to the person that you are today. But, when will you forgive your parents? When will you realize that some of our parents did the best, they could with the tools they were provided with? Many times, we are so busy pointing the finger that we never sit with them to ask them about their childhood and upbringing. Did you have the conversation with them? If so, do you realize the same fears you have, they had while raising you? When will you stop allowing your bitterness towards your parents prevent you from being free?
So, it’s time to forgive mom and/or dad for not being there. It’s time to stop blaming them for ALL of your issues as an adult. At some point, you have to take responsibility for your own actions. Yes, they missed the pivotal moments in your life. But you have the present to build a relationship with them. Don’t allow bad judgments and mistakes prevent your kids from having a relationship with their grandparents. Don’t allow anger and bitterness with your parents prevent you from having relationship with them.
I always say extend the same grace to others that has been extended to you. Do you know how many times you should have received backlash, but God extended grace? Do you know God saw you and knew what you did, but God extended grace? Do you remember you promised that you would never do it again and found yourself back again, but God extended grace? Do you remember when you were upset with your kids and had to come back and apologize for responding in anger, but God extended grace? It’s time for restoration of relationship between parents and children. If they didn’t do anything for you, be grateful that they created you. Don’t allow emotions to prevent you from moving forward. Your life has purpose and your life has value. Have an amazing day and always remember that you are loved! Until Friday..........Lady T
