My post today is on such a sensitive topic to me. I am an only child to a single parent. Mother has provided me with the best of everything. She has taught me not only by verbal dictates but most importantly by physically demonstrating the qualities of living virtuously and putting faith into action. I have learned a lot from my mother and I am so happy that she has brought me up in the nurture and admonition of our Lord, and taught me the value of education(high expectations of academic achievement). The problem I have is that my mother gets so easily offended and always seems to blow things out of proportion when we have disagreements and when she feels I have offended her. I can understand being ticked off but why all the drama? I mean I am so tired of all the emotional stuff that I have now become so withdrawn and emotionless when we have these moments.
Am I the only one with such issues? Other than this once in a while times. We live so peaceably like inseparable sisters. I pray that God will grant me all the patience, respect, meekness and humility needed in this life and to humbly know when/how to diffuse situations without "adding fuel to fire."
I don't know but perhaps these instances can sometimes be compared to the realities of mariage. Do you think so? having a wife/husband that gets angry at things that wouldn't even mean anything to you. Having to try to mend their emotions or always dealing with these personality conflicts. If that is the case marriage is truly Hard work.
