It is not what you do for your children, but what you have taught them to do for themselves. I teach my kids to be very independent, some people think im too hard (sometimes I think Im too hard), but I know they will be so much better off in the long run!
Speak the truth! Narcissists & their puppet believers/enablers want to keep you quiet & remain delusional to the truth & believe the lies.N's want you to sweep what they did to you under the carpet & act like it never happened. Or blame you for all of it.
Yes, I heard Joel Osteen's sermon today on thsi very subject. Oh, man, he is so right. I felt like I was being lectured by my DAD. for Pete's sakes. See? That's how you know your really loved. Someone actually reaches out and lectures you. That's awesome.
People say I'm too nice. That I need to grow a back bone and stand up for myself. That I need to be mean every once in awhile. But I'd rather be good, treat others good, and put good into this mean world. I think I'm stronger and tougher than any "mean" person by smiling and walking away. I'll always do my best to choose to be good.
