Related to our kids, we find a lot of controversy in our minds, because we only want to do as best as possible. People around us judge, give their opinion, try to help. But sometimes, it’s not what you need or even gets to hurt you. Forgiving is one of those things which is taboo, but it protects our sanity.
Eventually, situations and comments are unfair and you can’t see the light or find a reason to keep being kind or polite, or even respectful to someone who’s clearly looking to get into your business. From there the only option is forgiving.

Forgive although it’s not your fault. When you can’t find the way. Find a way to Forgive, when someone is hurting you, and let go. Be an example and show them the way. You don’t have to be forgiving to satisfy others, you do it for releasing your mind from pain, burden, and useless material in your already busy mind.
Protect whats’s yours, but never stop being fair.
Be sincere, tell people when you’ve had enough. Thank them for their priceless worrying and opinions, and then walk away. Don’t walk in circles, Don’t waste your time, and Don’t hurt yourself. We tie ourselves to painful emotions because they are addictive and, in them, we find an excuse to not do things right. With that, having the cluttered mind we will keep making the wrong choices emotionally.
I know it’s very difficult. I know you don’t want to let go. But your peace of mind, your zen, your genuine smile are way more important than proving to anyone how right you are. Free yourself from that burden and walk away.
Your kids will find the lesson within your struggle and your example, and will enjoy a calm home where they can hide when they got lost.
