The more I move forward with my life, the more I seem to be reflecting. I am finding it difficult to get my head around the fact that not telling me was a wilful act, and that as a consequence it has taken me 57 years to piece my disabilities together.
I have also become more reflective because I have more time on my hands. Where we may meet with success, no matter what we deal with, no matter what we work through to meet with success, the truth is not everyone is happy for our success.
Although other people’s attitudes towards us may be a result of their experiences growing up, they can choose to change their attitudes. We all choose our attitudes and whilst it’s true attitudes are enduring, attitudes can also change but first others have to want to change.
Whilst not everyone will accept responsibility, it’s not an excuse for them to blame others for how they turn out. Whilst children are not to blame for their childhood, as adults they are totally to blame if they choose not to heal and change.
Difficult to hear, but we all have a choice. We can choose to work and change, or we can choose to continue to unconsciously blame others for our lives and how we turn out.
