Take note parents: “no”, “I don’t care what you want”, “I’m not raising the children, I’m raising the grownups they are going to be.”
Why does it have to be a terrible life? It doesn’t.
The sick feeling he is talking about doesn’t have to be you. That hole in your heart doesn’t have to be empty.
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.1 Corinthians 13:4-7
