You want to believe that there’s one relationship in life that’s beyond betrayal. A relationship that’s beyond that kind of hurt….and…..there isn’t.
~ Caleb Carr
Unfortunately, my experience makes me a non believer as well….If your own Father or Mother can betray you, and I mean fill your heart with hurt, and eyes with tears, you’d be naive to think that no other human being in this world wouldn’t do the same. There are (2) relationships in life that should be beyond betrayal and they are a (child and his/ her Mother), and a (child and his/ her Father). If one of those relationships are hindered all future relationships for the child will be hindered in one way or another…Myself included….We all want the same thing from our parents even as we move into adult hood! We want to be WANTED! Money and gifts CAN NEVER and WILL NEVER take the place of that.
We’ll take the candy and gifts as a kid, yeah it’ll make us forget that you didn’t pick us up last week like you said you would…., we’ll take the money when we roller over into our teens, yeah that’ll make us forget that you didn’t make it to the basketball game you said you’d be at last Tuesday…. but those things never took a way the time we wanted to spend and the effort we wanted to see in our parent really caring. What it did was hush us up for the moment. They forget we out grow all those things and then we’re left with these memories, that aren’t really memories…we realize we were just being hustled like everyone else they were hustling, we were just being played like everyone else they were playing, we were cared about when it was convenient to them and not convenient us.
They forget we’re going to grow up…….WE GROW UP….AND WHEN THEY SHOW US WHO THEY REALLY ARE…WE BELIEVE THEM!
Even if I fall on my face, I’m still moving forward!
