Sometimes I wish I could just pick up the phone and call you. Sometimes I wish when you call I wouldn’t just ignore the phone as if you’re worthless. In fact, I love you like no other woman. I’ve always loved you even though at times it is hard to express yet you’ll always be my one true love. I am not sure what it is but maybe my rage and anger is too much for me at times to withstand. I know you mean well so I am not going to fight you but I think it’s time you take a look at me and treat me like I matter to you. You value me when I am not there maybe because it boosts your ego as if you were the one guiding me through this journey. You talk about me like no other yet what happen to expressing your thoughts to the one you love. See, too often Christians let their beliefs interfere with their personal relationships and at times it can be devastating. Imagine a son who’s crying out his heart to his parents yet they’re not trying to understand, they’re unable to understand because they’ve been brainwashed by these pastors and fake prophets and ultimately this poor kid overdose on some drugs. If only someone had paid him attention, if only huh.

You also have those parents who can’t seem to let the kid get a word in during conversation so the child end up letting everyone runs all over him and ultimately leads to his demise. I agree there has to be a limit when it comes to parents and children relationship yet how do we decide where to draw the line. Do you just sit back, force the kid to attend Sunday masses, dictate his every move, and allow him to develop his social skills.

I am a rebel. I’ve always been rebellious. I refused to let my parents chain me. So now it’s hard to pick the phone to even place a call to my mother because my theories and perception of life is different from hers. I used to think that my mother and her husband were ignorant because they wanted to restrict me but as I got older I grew to understand their parental methods and although I don’t approve it, I commend them for the job they’ve done with their kids.

I know they’re proud of me and my accomplishments yet I’ve never heard them say wow, Blake, you’ve done well. Yet whenever I stop by their church, the members know everything that I’ve been doing and they tell me how much of a joy I am to my mom and step dad. I guess through other parties I’ve found out how they feel about me but isn’t it their obligation to kind of let me know how they feel? I guess that’s parents for you, so until then, when that phone rings, I am not going to kill myself and answer it. Yet I got mad love for you mom.

Rebellious son…

QUICK UPDATE

Things got better.  All parties are very happy with the way things are.

    Isnt that wonderful. Sometimes we dont understand the love of our Haitian parents. The traditional way that americans show their kids love is way past their level. I believe our parents shows us love through hard work and words of affirmation to their peers.

    Remember you will never have another mother and in her way she loves you with all her heart. Call that woman every once in a while, Im sure its a joy to her.

    This sounds like a rebellious little boy for sure and I’m happy to see from the update that he’s grown up ;)

    Trust and Believe that SHE VALUES, LOVES and CHERISH YOU more than you know, even though she might not show it or say that she does(which might be very annoying and frustrating). In Her Own way, She Does….Thanks for sharing this one.

    All they want is for you to be better than others, they want you to be the perfect one which they forget there’s no perfect child. At least you have one that is there to push you to be the best some which to have. Happy to hear that you realize the love. good job!

    I can totally relate to this. It is true as we get older and wiser , we get a better understading of our parents mentality and thir idea of raising a child.

    “like no other yet what happen to expressing your thoughts to the one you love”
    awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww (tears) I am such a wuss! lol I love this….some folks just don’t know how to say I love you…so why wait, you should be doing the teaching and say it instead, show them the way :)

    Okay there buddy :) now you are a grown man writing this…in retrospect…maybe, the day you wrote it, the boy in you wrote it but now lemme wear my Dr. Phil hat and tell you that as a man, hope you are fully grown into being a man lol…you need to see this as it is….christian/religious beliefs impact ALL RELATIONSHIPS, whether you agree with your parents/mother’s beliefs or not you, as an adult should be able to understand that it is her belief, her code, the rules she chose for herself. She did not choose it to exclude you but because it was good for her. As a christian raised child, you ought to also understand that Christ did not come to bond people together but to sever..christianity is not all love folks, let’s stop the lies…it, like any sect, cult, religions is separatism in action…does that take her love away from you? Not at all…Abraham was going to kill his only son, gifted by God to God because God asked him to…if a child chooses to stray from a family’s religious beliefs, yes he will be cut off…this is not about lack of love for the child but love for God, for self, sticking to values/principles already established and embraced maybe prior to having this child…

    when we are children, we think as children but as adults we need to think like adults…just like I will kick my children out if they do not go to college(unless they start paying rent and all, no freeloaders)…it is that I do not love them…it is just my rule, my principle…I love them but I will abide by my beliefs whether they turn out to be homeless tomorrow or not and I tell them that already…can we change? yes we can…but when it comes to issues of faith and principles…very hard to do.

    We often judge our parent’s parenting ways but forget how children were not birthed with a manual…they did the best they can with the knowledge they had and in all truthfulness out of love for their child..most parents love their children and want what is best for them and will try to make that happen at all costs…etc…and as adults we need to understand that, accept it and forgive them…I love my mama and she used to beat me like crazy…but I made her my friend. I MADE HER my friend…she did not want to, she did not comprehend that because she was not raised like that. At certain point in time, we have to raise them as well…as mine will do me I am sure lol

    “I used to think that my mother and her husband were ignorant because they wanted to restrict me but as I got older I grew to understand their parental methods and although I don’t approve it, I commend them for the job they’ve done with their kids.” awwwwwwwwwwww I won’t remove previous statements sorry lol ha ha ha ha ha but good for you…you are growing up lol

    “isn’t it their obligation to kind of let me know how they feel?”
    since you had asked and all..NOPE, NOPE, NOPE…after 18 no one owes you jack thank you very much lol…lemme go write this on my kids’ birth certificate lol lol lol
    It is nice to hear the words, isn’t it? but not everyone is forthcoming or emotionally effusive…my best buddy always tells me how her mother has NEVER told her “I LOVE YOU”. WOW! That is odd to me. I tell my mom I love her all the time lol but my siblings don’t tell her and she does not tell them that either…WHY? Because honey dear IT TAKES TWO…RELATIONSHIPS are between TWO people..it is fine and dandy to have your perception of a parent or another but why wait for she when you can as well? and quite frankly after 18 years of age I think we owe them…darn it they owe me my c-sections, doggone it!!! lol

    “Things got better. All parties are very happy with the way things are.’

    and here I am rablablaying away lol ha ha ha ha ha ha well glad to read that and I wish you tell her every chance you get that you love her..because let me tell you I suspect you were rebellious in the stomach and you owe this woman for her pain…carrying a child is HARD, PUSHIHNG YOUR BIG head was probably HARDER lol lol lol THUS, since you are still alive and kicking and doing great Mrprodg stuff and all, call her and thank her for carrying you to terms, apologize for expecting that she ought to have known it all and for questioning her parenting skills, and tell her how much you love her…please do not come with no I MISS YOU blog for her shall anything happen to her and you did not do these things…LOVE HER NOW, TODAY, CONTINUOUSLY, SHOW HER YOU APPRECIATE HER ETC…

    hmmm my mama always said “see how a man loves his mother and cares for his mother and you will see how he will treat his wife” hmmmmmmmmmm my mama is always right, sometimes lol lol so get to it for your ladies to keep on swooning :-)
