    What would you do if this racist/religion nut job is your dad?

    At Taiwan I once met a white old lady, she told me, in the 50s, her father try forcing her to marry a priest's son, whom is a wife beater, but nobody believe it, because his father is a priest. So, when Vietnam war broke out, she join the red cross and met a doctor of Taiwan army, afterwards she went to Taiwan with him. Her father angry, at her for choosing a none white none Christian, try force her to return, when she refuse, her parents never speak to her again, she didn't return to her home country till, 2001 with her grand daughter and saw her sister for the first time in over 30 years

    Sometimes you have to cut toxic people out of your life.
    It doesn't matter to me whether they are family or not.
    Life is a (personal) journey.
    We get to (choose) whom we spend our time with!

    This is the age-old belief that parent's 'own' their children and that they are forever in charge of them.  It is very common even today for a father or mother to believe that their children should take the path in life which they, the parents, feel they should.  Such parents cannot let go of control.   They feel it is their right to control their children's lives; that their children 'owe' them.

    The wise and loving parent knows when to let go.   Children can be shown and even directed, but once they reach adulthood, they should be set free to make their own lives...whatever those lives will be.

    With many parents, it is a case of 'we know best because we're more experienced in life,' but if you look at these same people's lives they are often pretty pathetic.   Quite often they simply wish to bask in the kudos of their offspring's success.
