NOTE: As with my no longer posting on politics, I am no longer planning to post on (new or old) family matters.
This is my final post in that arena, as I have learned that all of the above can be triggering for me.
Due to poverty, a lack of education, ignorance, and the way that all of our parents were raised, my cousins and I were/are severely messed up!
My dad and his siblings were so brainwashed by their parents, that my dad, missing church was more important than tending to my health (which I nearly died of a 107 degree fever at two years old).
Now today, I have schizoaffective disorder as a result of my dad’s negligence.
And, there were also numerous problems with how my cousins were raised as well!
Do I forgive all of these adults? Do my cousins forgive them?
I can’t speak for my cousins, but all of us are forever affected by all of these “decisions!”
But, yes, I forgive—for me (and no one else).
I just wouldn’t expect me to have “trust” for any of these people again.
