I dont agree with this at all. I would change it to say: I AM YOUR FRIEND. I will be there for you always. I will go with you to a movie on a Friday night. I will never talk behind your back, or start rumors about you. I will listen to your hopes, dreams, triumphs, frustrations and disappointments. We have a bond for life, not only because I am your parent, but also your friend.
Treat yourself the way you would a small child. Feed yourself healthy food make sure you spend time outside. Put yourself to be early. Let yourself take naps. Don't say mean things to yourself, don't put yourself in danger. (Your skull heart are still as fragile as eggshells)
Somehow people always want to blame God for the bad things that happen in life, you know that old arguement "If God is so great and loving why did my house get broke into and we became poor?" to which i reply "Its not Gods fault your dad is a drug dealer and he sold someone a bad batch who them followed him home and ransacked his house."
Forgiveness is a decision. We decide to cut off the bitter root and plant a seed of love. We cannot blame ourselves if it does not grow; sometimes the other party has poisoned the soil too much. But we must keep the bitter roots cut and plant more and more seeds of love. Forgiveness begins when we make that choice; long before we see the results.
