I often wonder why some people treat their families the way they do, how they cannot possibly see the devastation that they cause with their cold and selfish attitudes, that they cannot see (apparently) how they hurt and offend the people who are close to them. And how others will complain about the thoughtless acts, and the cold reactions yet they will not address the situation. Why? I think that often the party who is so self absorbed with their own world, actually do not see that they are doing anything wrong, they are so caught up in their view of reality that they have no idea whatsoever that they have caused any upset to another member of the family. On the other hand, those who have been at the receiving end will not say anything, will not stand up to this person and tell them how they feel. Why? They are all on a merry-go-round and until one of them makes an effort to stop this cycle then it will just continue, on and on. They will all continue to be unhappy or self absorbed (whichever the case maybe) and the anger and frustration continues to build causing anger, resentment and illness within those who will not confront this situation and begin the journey of healing.
Life is about love, harmony, happiness and peace, and if you cannot find this within your own family what hope has the world got.
