I wonder if my parent

could have withstood the same kind of upbringing and 38 years of crap that he doled out -

mmm ?

I wonder how he would have taken to him being his own parent -


- he is such a looser

I guess the real tragedy is that dysfunctional parents rarely see the terrible harm they are doing to their own kids. They always find some excuse for what they are doing, and usually the excuse just makes the child feel even worse.

I doubt they ever consider what it would be like to have a parent like themselves, but if they do I am sure they have some nonsensical argument to show how it "wouldn't be all that bad".

Much love,
