What do I teach my boys, age 15 and 10, about respecting their alcoholic, angry father? We divorced 2 years ago because life was so unbearable, but they still see him every other weekend.
I have been dating a woman for the past 3 years and we got engaged about 6 months ago. We have been having a lot of issues and arguments over time. Just when i started considering if this was a good choice, my mother started having revelations that she was not the one for me. I prayed with 2 other pastors who felt the same way. I tried to explain to my fiancée the need to pray over our plans together, but she insists her family prayed and did not have any such revelations. I will appreciate your advice.
I have a trip planned with my siblings to travel to the areas where we grew up in hopes of reliving some wonderful memories of our childhood. Of course there will will be a mix of laughs, smiles and the inevitable sad memories (no one’s life is without this). Is this a healthy activity, to revisit one’s past to enjoy memories and life lessons from the past in order to reinforce who you are today? I have been told this is a waste of time and I should only look to the future. Thank you for your insight. – Breljana
