Be True To Yourself!

Has there ever been a time in your life where a bad moment happened that others will not let you off the hook, or worse yet have begun clearly seeing it in an entirely different light?

The story of the events that happened that day over two years ago have grown into this outlandish fairy tale. It was an argument between a mother and a daughter who were both going through some rough times but to even suggest that I ever threatened to “Kidnap” my grandson is simply ludicrous. And, all the other tales that I did that “dreadful” day are just too bizarre to give them a space in this article and so far from the truth.

As always, we will continue to be truthful and true to ourselves…no matter what others do or say. We will not allow their lies, vindictiveness and wanting to get even to sway us from what we know to be true.

It is important for us to live our lives this way every moment and not to allow others to veer us towards any different path and it is of utmost importance never to allow others opinions to color our own thoughts about ourselves.

The stories of what they believe to have happened compared to the truth of what really happened is on totally different sides of the spectrum of life and this is what continues to keep them stuck in the past instead of forgiving, letting go and moving into the next phase of our lives.

The worse part of this entire situation is that a young innocent child, my grandson is paying the highest price of all. He is not able to share special moments with his “Nana & Papa”, who has always loved him, cared for him and never used him as an instrument to get even with another person. It saddens me knowing that deep inside him, he is sad and feeling unloved and believes that we left him as many others have in his very short years. The only thing left for us to do is to pray that someday soon our daughter will see the harm she is doing to all of us and let go of her anger and pick up that phone so we can begin the process of allowing us to be grandparents to him once again.

Sounds like you guys are going through the same kind of thing that my lady and I are going through. Her kids seem to be so intent on blaming her for things that she had nothing to do with, and the truth -- in plain black-and-white, right under their noses -- makes no difference to them.

I guess you can't reason with people who are irrational.

We've finally decided to just let it be. We go our way, they go theirs. Staying in contact with them does no good, because anything we say or do will be twisted around to "prove" to them that they were right.
