You can only blame your parents for so long

Everyone has a sad story related to their unfortunate childhood.  Some are truly tragic , unsettling, and sorriful to say the least.  There’s tales of teenage pregnancies caused by trusted relatives, physically abusive parents, or abandonment.  Life can be completely unfair.  None of us asked to be here.  We certainly never asked to be born into the families we’re born to.  And what baby raises his hand at the chance to have a drug-addicted parent?  As awful as some of life’s circumstances are and can be, at what point will we stop blaming our childhood for what’s going on in our lives today?  I’ll tell you when.  Right now.  I won’t say “get over it”, but I will say, “live with it”.

We’ve heard, “life is about choices” and it’s true.  You have to chose the life you want.  Don’t allow a bunch of distasteful experiences choose for you.  Let’s not start the conversation with what your parents did or didn’t do to you.  What have you done for yourself?
