My own difficulties have helped me develop resilience too!
There is not a stunt he hasn’t tried.
I owe my survival to Lily Allen and my god-given sense of humour. I don’t want to sound like an Oscar’s speech but God has held my hand every step of the way. I am p$d off with all those who enabled our suffering. I am asking all of you to make it better for others in the future!
I remember a mother saying she had 5(?) children once and that she didn’t have time to make his sandwiches. So I had suggested she teach him to make his own sandwiches. I spent considerable time teaching these skills to our children.
I wanted my youngsters to grow up unafraid to challenge and to question me.They will ultimately know much more than me. I challenged them to beat me with their education. My son has two degrees and my daughter went to a top university. I challenge any young readers to do the same. Be better educated and do a better job of running the planet than us.
Sorry things are currently so f#cked for you. Beat us at running the planet. Learn from our mistakes. Anticipate assholes along the way and be prepared!
Many of us were once young and idealistic too!
Remember this from Pay It Forward!
However sometimes you can lead a camel to water but you cannot make it drink!
This reminds me of my marriage, He certainly “had the hump” a lot!
