Anybody grow up in a setting like this?
And Iam here to tell ya, I still live with some memories of my raising that sets a person back a spell.
MY mother especially never told us kids that she loved us. And if we told her that we loved her, she would say, "OH that's silly, don't say that".
MY Father whom I loved dearly, was never big on hugging, or the love thing either.
His thing to tell us kids was, "Toughen UP, and stay tough, don't cry, you can't cry in this family".
Backstabbing & gossip was the setting of this drama family being played out into real life.
MY mother would pit us kids up against each other instead of offering solutions to solve issues between us.
I was on the track team, softball team, singing group, artist group, etc...all thru high school and my parents never came once to see me perform.
I was baptized along with my sister in a church without my family present. Somehow that right there I find very sad.
Although, as I write this, there were some real good times to remember as well.
I must never forget the good times, as they keep me heading in the right direction for myself and my family now.
I guess you could say, that I made it thru some rough family years growing up, only to have a pretty good life now.
