Seldom do you find “powerful” people apologizing. An apology should be just as adamant as their conviction, regardless if the accused defends themselves vocally or with silence, an apology is needed. Small awkward conversations does not quell the situation even if it was initiated by the ” powerful” accuser.
For the posterity of peace in my stomach, mind and heart I have activated forgiveness and practice the art of letting God. True power is experienced with small, sincere acts that emboldens you – so simple, so divine- that it commands respect.
And for those who can’t muster up an apology, I lift you up in prayers. Your indirect approach does not go unnoticed. Bless up yourself, forever large.
My mother once said ” be good ” as pre marital advice. I was off course skeptical as she was a recent divorcee. I have walked with it though at times my pettiness gets the best of me, drinking bush tea for my husbands cold, but I’ve digressed.
My mother is one of the most phenomenal women I know. Seldom does she shed tears, she’s does everything she wants to, she dresses well, cooks exquisitely, is fit and fun so then why did my father habitually cheat on her? Was is that she never allowed the free flow of emotions? Never provided the environment he needed to evolve emotionally? Is that why I too am stunted with my emotions?
AND THINKING IT OVER I can’t recall a time where feelings was ever encouraged at home. I’m trying so damned hard to understand where it is I come from, where I am and what I can do to help my kids be a bit more secure in this world. Emotion has its place, balance is key. Is it too late to help heal both my parents although they’re separated? Love can heal. That much I know. It’s ok to be vulnerable mommy- vulnerability is beautiful.
