How do you forgive a parent?
Hi, this isn't exactly a poem and I know this site does not serve this purpose but I don't really have anyone to talk to about this so I came on here. I've been struggling for the past years to forgive my father. He is a very verbally and emotionally abusive person. Most of his hurtful words are directed towards my mother. This pains me so much as a child to the point where I have developed suicidal thoughts. I have tried time and time again to understand and forgive him but it has been challenging and I feel hopeless. As a highly introverted person who is also sensitive, the anger I have kept for a long time is taking a serious toll on my mental health. Since I can't leave home and am still in school, staying at home during the pandemic is specially more taxing. If you have any advice on how to overcome such situations, please let me know I would love to learn a thing or two and it would be highly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
