While going through life I have met different people and I have had a chance to observe them around myself – from family members to friends. And of course life happens and we have not so pleasant experiences and interactions with others. But I always ask myself why people would repeatedly or intentionally hurt their own children and someone else they love – with words, actions and their behavior. Even more to release their anger or stress in this way and not taking into account how it could affect the other person. Especially how it can affect a kid who is just starting to understand the world and getting excited about it. I think home should be a place to feel safe and loved because there are already so many things happening outside. Also relating to a person someone loves – to be hurtful and cause repeated pain. Why? What has happened to them to continue to hurt loved ones like the way someone caused the pain to them.
I just look at all that and I still cannot understand. Even more when pain is caused for years and while knowing that it is wrong it is still happening. I know for myself that all the painful experiences serves for me as an example and reminder to not be that kind of person. I know how it is to come home and not to feel protected from outside and I do not want to ever make someone I love to make experience that.
Don’t hurt anyone. It only takes few seconds to hurt people you love, and it can take years to heal. Nanu Thakuri
