Some of us will be more affected by our early years than others. Through our background, environment and experiences, some of us will emotionally struggle. Our earlier experiences shape who we are and how we go on to behave.
But that can be no excuse for bad behaviour. As parents it’s our duty to show children moral practices regardless of our own background. It’s important that whatever issues we have, we sort them out so that family don’t have to pick up the pieces long after we’re gone.
I find it incredibly sad when we hear stories where that doesn’t happen. Although we often carry problems that other family members don’t always know about, they need to be dealt with by us long before we’re gone and not left for our children to sort out.
I also believe that no matter how we’re born, or what our story is, our entrance and exit are the most important part, because together they shape who we are and how others see us. There is no excuse for the adverse impact we leave behind. We only have to pick up a newspaper or listen to the media hype to know how some of those stories end.
Where we deal with neglect, abuse, or anxiety, my own experience shows that we don’t have to stay in that place. I have learned that whatever truths we uncover along the way, we must embrace them and learn a more spiritual path, because that fundamentally helps with our emotional and spiritual growth.
And though we might also deal with deceit, it is still possible for us to live a moral life. Through my own personal insights, intuition and thoughts, I show how to become a more balanced, self-assured, independent and ultimately happier person.
For any parent to leave a trail behind for their children to patch up isn’t the way, because that trail without personal intervention, can ultimately never be patched.
