Riddle me this . . . is any family perfect?
“No!” you say?
Well how about that.
Here I was under the illusion that to have any contact with your family requires that
all family members behave in a friendly, supportive and non-judgemental manner
AT ALL TIMES.
No wait! That’s not how I think . . . .that’s how my sisters think. No wonder there’s a problem here.
I have learnt from much pain and suffering that noone is perfect and that to judge someone
is witless and narrow minded (no judgement in that statement – ha!).
In my experience, families provide the most fertile ground for bitching, hatred, animosity, betrayal,
ignorance and judgementalism. And yet I still want to ‘have’ my family.
Seriously, how witless does that make me?
I dearly wish that my sisters could see just how much negative behaviour they are exposing their sons to
(my beloved nephews). If only they could see, objectively, their own behaviour. I don’t care that
they’re a pair of moo moos constantly putting me down and bullying me, I can ignore it (now),
but excluding each other and their own mother and ME is not healthy.
Why can’t they see dammit?
