It is worth working through childhood issues. I thought my dad got many things wrong and my mother never did. I know different now. Then after I’d been a father for many years, well I saw I went and got things wrong as well. I discovered I’m not perfect in anyway about me and I never can be. Years after he passed away I spent a few hours by his grave having a chat. It was a wet, drizzly afternoon. At the end of the chat I forgave him for everything and thanked him for providing for me and teaching me much about the core values of live, either in a negative or positive way. It was one of the most cathartic, growing up things I’ve ever done in my life. It certainly was a release, an unbinding from my childhood.
But I guess there are some things from our childhood that are unforgivable. But at the same time I still believe in the adage “Forgive … or relive”.
