Saw your video on BBC. You say that you tell people that they need to forgive. How do you forgive someone who called you and your daughter “freeloaders”, and tried to kick you out of your mother’s house when you were unemployed - with no other place to go, & unable to find a job? Then he proceeds to tell my mother that she owes him $1000s. He is a drunk *sshole who continuously disrespects my sister, who he is married to, by constantly picking his children over hers and never backing her up even when the kids treat her like crap, threaten her, & disrespect her. How exactly do you forgive someone like that???
My sister told me that I needed to get over my problem with him because he is her husband & I told her that was never going to happen. I completely & totally ignore him when I have to be around him for family occasions. I don’t think about him or talk about him unless someone brings him up and even then I don’t engage.
I wish more people would take chances like you. Right now I’m missing my friend who is flying back to Texas. She only came out to visit. She won’t be back until January when her son graduates.
I told this woman she must find a way to forgive her brother-in-law. We must have compassion and empathy for all, even hateful people. Hateful people hate themselves first and foremost. That armor of hate is really directed at themselves. We need to find ways to help these people. Hate destroys all, especially the hater. That angry man in the store swearing at people is swearing at himself. He’s not swearing at you. That road rage driver isn’t angry at you. He’s angry at himself.
