Luke, I am your Father

Streams Of Destiny

The relationship of father to child (or children) can be stormy or strong or both.

Not everyone has the gift of a good father. But, if you do count your blessings.

If you do not, then you have an opportunity to explore what you would want to be different. You can make what 12-Steppers call an “inventory,” a special one just for this relationship.

Encouraging Inspiration…

Rebecca Nietert

When children are raised with more criticism than encouragement, judgement, abuse, neglect, loathing, or condemnation; and then suffer PTSD from violent criminal acts, that child would sooner lash out than treat others with calm grace. When a toxic parent (I hate that word) uses a long list of arsenal built over time such as lying, judging, abuse, using shame, manipulation, abandonment, humiliation and criticisms to establish control over you, it’s not okay.
