This life is filled with questions that have no answers….suffering that doesn't have to be. As my friend weeps as to the treatment she receives, the mockery of it, I have no words of comfort….I can only be "present." Maybe that will ease some of the heartache. And I want to say to that child when she and her spouse are gone….."are you happy that you caused such heartache for so many years….apparently unconditional love isn't part of you. You put on a happy face to those around you, all the while maintaining your inner hatred for the people who loved you unconditionally, regardless of what you ever said or did to your family. Are you proud of the person you've become, with the facade you share with the world? What happened to the you that is buried somewhere within you? WHY would you allow another to change you? When they're gone it's too late, but then, you will be "free" of them, won't you? You were once a decent, kind person. How do you feel now, knowing she died after years of being bullied by your cruelty and sarcasm? Lastly, somewhere deep within you lies the compassionate, decent, loving person you were born as. How will you live with that person when it resurfaces? After all, the real people we are will always be there, albeit buried."
Each of us knows someone like this…..hopefully our example will help them to curtail the cruel sarcasm and take a look at their real self.
