I Should Tell Them

A very thought provoking post from a great blog and blogger, expressing an issue which can affect all of us, one way or another, when we’re faced with sharing ourselves, our stories, with others, especially when sharing our very personal and painful experiences.
The question asked is one which is difficult to answer.
Those are the best questions to ask, but the hardest ones for which to find just one answer.
Thank you for sharing!


    • Thank you for sharing, a lot of what you said really hit home, even though I stopped sharing myself with my parents and that side of family a long time ago.

      I am looking forward to your series, and admire your courage in sharing as you do, you have a brave heart πŸ™‚

  1. i would love to tell my parents but what good would it do – they wouldn’t agree because i deserved it i was a bad child from birth and i am wrong and always will be wrong. all i can do is recognize that they are sick and get to a place where their actions dont bother me and turn that disgust to more compassion. anything else seems a wasted breath. Anything else gives them sick power. the only way to show them is by my success despite what they think. and who the heck hangs out with toxic people. maybe I’m wrong and dont understand something. i like to look at weakness/hole i have. but until they see/understand they were ill and want/need to get better whats the point?

    so you can tell them but what will be the result. have they changed can they change?

      I can appreciate what you’re saying as I also have parents who did something similar. I gave up years ago when it came to communicating with them. I accepted that I wasn’t a person but a thing which was part of their story. They’re caught up in their own story and can’t see anything or anyone beyond that.

      That’s one of the reasons I liked this post, as it shows the paradox between the adult child who understands and the parent who never will.
