Hello everybody and hello weekend! My kids are in bed, I have about half an hour before they wake up. It is such a lovely day, the sun is shinning, I made an incredible raw desert and I will have the weekend off. Next week will be hectic again (so much work), so I need to relax as much as I can.
So ... Louise Hay talks about resentment a lot. I admit that I have hard time forgiving people. Sometimes I just cannot let go. My dad is the best example. I really don't like the way he is treating her and I talked to him about it sooo many times! It's really not nice. His dad treated my grandma the same way. When he gets frustrated at something, he starts yelling at me as well. Insulting and yelling. Most of the time he is sorry after the event, but I just cannot forget or forgive. I am trying to move on, but every time I see him, I am afraid that he will be annoyed and cranky. I'm very sensitive and I actually feel physical pain when I am stressed. How to forgive? I also noticed, that when he is in bad mood, I get defensive and I am not as pleasant as I want to be. Vicious circle.
This weekend will be a family weekend again. We will spend Saturday and Sunday together in our vacation house. Us 4, my dad and my mother. I am trying as hard as I can to visualize a nice family weekend, great relationships and peaceful mind. I decided that I am going to be nice with him all weekend. Even if he gets annoying, I will be kind and I will not raise my voice. We will see what happens.
What do you do with people like that? I cannot avoid him, because he is my dad. on the other hand, he is amazing with my kids...
Have a great weekend!
