I’m not sure exactly how much my personal experience relates to yours, since I’ve never been married nor experienced being a parent.
What I have realised over-time is that, it was people who were overtly nice who betrayed me, the ones that were happy to party but wouldn’t be there during my lowest of moments.
In essence, people who were rough around the edges and not acting like they had anything to prove were the kind and honest ones; I discovered — one of the many lessons of living in a masked society.
I reflected on it in my own experience with people and wrote about it, if you’d like to read it,
My father always said,
You can tell alot about the parents by the children whom they raised, similarly you can tell alot about an employer by observing how their employees behave when they’re not present.
Thank you for sharing,
Very heartfelt and kind of you,
Much love and Kind Regards,
