Leaving The Past Behind

Dad and I had a long talk last week. Not that he gave my brother and I a chance to air our views and feelings, but we were there anyway. He talked so much about where we are from as a family, the struggles he’s been through to raise us up, and the trouble he has undergone to make me be who I am today. I won’t lie, I fear my dad more than I love him. Maybe in his mind he brought us up the best way he could. He said he has never made a mistake. That was really hard to take. Really hard. How can a man say he has never made any mistake?

He was a little tipsy, the only time he gets to talk of things straight from the heart. I take that as cowardise because I don’t know what you want me to get when you can only be open to me when you are drunk. Anyway, I figured out perhaps I’ll have to look for a way to accept him just as he is. Hasn’t mum done that for the last two decades? It’s gonna be hard for me but I’ll try.

As we ushered in 2012, I talked to myself. I need to change so many things in my life. I need to figure out a way which I could be close to dad. I don’t know how that will work out but it’s worth a try. I just have a problem with his ego, but I’ll give it a shot nevertheless. Am growing old and after all, I won’t live with him forever. The only thing I hope is that he doesn’t get violent towards mum, because that is the way he has been when he cannot contain his anger. That’s why I dread being too angry. It makes people stupid.

Am trying to leave the past behind, and not talk about it again. It’s a tall order, but sometimes in life you just have to swallow your pride to get what you want. It never hurts anyone.

    Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up
    what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the
    whole thing. Do you have any suggestions
    for novice blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a
    pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    naturally like your web-site however you have to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    Many of them are rife with spelling problems
    and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth however I will definitely come again again.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and
    gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never
    wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but
    I had to tell someone!
