Dear, —— —–
You really can’t change people. They have to want to change themselves.
Sadly, a lot of people don’t see anything wrong with how they treat others around them – their brothers, sisters, Children…Let me help you. YOU ARE DRIVING THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE AWAY FROM YOU. It behooves me that some people don’t notice this. How can you not see that there are more arguments than laughs? More tears of sorrow than joy? Please, open your eyes. This isn’t how it’s supposed to be. Family isn’t like that. Families love, nourish, and lift up one another. This is how I was raised. You love your family and treat them right because at the end of the day, they’re the only ones who will be there. But if you steady drive them away because you think there’s nothing wrong with you and make yourself the victim, you’ll end up with no one. And for some people I know, time is running out…
I Thank God for my family and The love He’s bestowed within it. I have two strong Christ centered parents. And they are FORREAL about their faith. I admire them. And that’s how it should be. I want to take care of them when the time comes. Peers I have sadly don’t say the same.
“She treats me like crap now. Why would I ever want to help her later when she hasn’t been a Mother to me? She looks at me more as a friend than a daughter… The part that hurts the most is that I can’t get to her. She doesn’t listen. And when she chooses to, she victimizes herself..I don’t know what to do.”
This was spoken to me by a dear friend recently and it hurt me. Deeply. My heart goes out to this young lady and her mom. If you’re religious, please don’t hesitate to shoot up a prayer for their situation. Pray that someone opens their mind and realize that it’s time to change for the better and be real about it.
Hopefully this doesn’t just fly over your head when you see this. Truly Analyze how you treat your loved ones. Don’t just read this blog post and think, “He has a point and hopefully this reaches the right person,” cause chances are, YOU are that person.
I love you and I’m praying for you.
