Cycles of Life
This is the first in a series of blogs that will highlight cycles of life. Topics include generational cycles of child abuse, dysfunctionality, drugs, alcohol, illiteracy, and abandonment.
It does not matter who you are, we all live through cycles, cycles of life. Some of those cycles are positive and some of those cycles are negative. Based off of my biography (www.me.inc.now.(home)) you will develop an understanding of where I have come from, how the generation before me has led to my development as an adult and how the negative influence of these cycles continue unless broken. Simply put, I believe that a “positive foundation” develops into other “positive foundations”, how, you may ask. Let me explain, you are more likely to attend college if your parent has attended college, you are less likely to spend time in jail if your parents have not been jailed, in short, positive behaviors influence positive behaviors. My life was not the case, it was negative behaviors of dysfunctional childhood that, through me, continued to lead to dysfunctional behaviors as I matured.
My biological father did not appear in my life until the age of seven and briefly at that. At the age of seventeen my father came back into my life, this time to become more involved as I matured into adulthood. Even though my life was changing for the better, I still reverted to juvenile behaviors. I was a father at the age of seventeen not prepared for the responsibility of raising a child. The easiest solution was to walk away, pretend it never did happen, ignore the responsibility to my own child. And so….. I was gone, out of my child’s life until I had brief contact when my daughter was seven years old. I re-entered back into my daughters’ life when she was maturing as an adult at the age of nineteen. Do you see a cycle here? ……. we will discuss child abuse in the next blog release. here.
