There is one thing living a dysfunctional life, but whatever our dysfunctional life, we must choose not to leave this world in the same dysfunctional way. Instead we must put things right, right a wrong or a lifetime of wrongs, with our loved ones.
I recently watched a film called ‘The Judge,’ about a dysfunctional family and although the father and son, showed all the dysfunctional family stereotypes, the father chose to put things right with his son before he passed, even though their relationship had been acrimonious for years.
Whatever our lives, it is important we make things right with family and before we pass. Underneath layers of dysfunctional behaviour sits the truth of how we feel about each other. It is important we say what matters, before our lives became entangled in a gulf of dysfunctional behaviour and whilst we still can.
Better still, we must correct things as we go. Too many families are left with anger and anxiety issues, just before their loved ones pass and don’t know how to emotionally correct or change things once they’re gone.
