Our family members, yes, RELATIVES, are supposed to protect us, make us feel secure and safe, not knock us down or bully us. Yet, time and again we get disrespected or disregarded because of the mistakes that we have or have not made. We can try to understand what drove them to do so, although there would be always be the possibility that we may never understand their reasons. Forgiveness is the key of course, but, it's just sad that these people are our "family" - and they are the ones who quickly judge us. I read somewhere that "A great family member will show you the tarnish, but then sit with you and help you clean and polish until you gleam again. It is an experience that although uncomfortable still feels productive and safe." This SHOULD be the case. Well, to each his own. As Jesus said, “Let him who is without sin cast the first stone.” Bato-bato sa langit! Good afternoon y'all! :) (written on July 18, 2012)
