Stop Blaming!

posted by Rechie on , , ,


I am sick of these people blaming me for my father's condition saying I didn't take care of him and that I neglected him. What's worse is that mostly the people who blame are those outsiders.

What do they know about us, about my family and about me? How do they do know I am neglecting my father. Are they watching my every move? Are they monitoring me 24/7? Did they put a hidden camera in every place I am present that they know everything. Geezz!

They do not know nor they have no right to know. They have no right to give the less-needed blame toward me and toward any of my family member. We are not even blaming each other for what happened. If there's one who should be blaming it would be me toward my mother for turning her back on him but no, I didn't and will never do.

As what I have said to those people who blamed me just recently, my father' condition is due to his bad habits and age. He knows that. I, we never once neglected our father. We have given him the freedom and joy to be just at home instead of letting him work. He does what he wants to do. He drinks what he wants to drink. He eats what he wants to eat. We are giving him the freedom to enjoy life in his own way but of course, we are guiding him, sometimes scolding him when we need to.

After delivering my piece to those blaming outsiders, they only granted me their ignorant remarks that only showed how hard it was for them to just mind their own lives. We don't need the blame as it doesn't help. An advise or two, well wishes and heartfelt concerns; these are all we need.
