Okay, now should we follow the traditional things? Should we do what our parents, grandparents, or great grandparents did just because they are older and presumed to be wiser? Also, does age make you wise?
My answer to all three is not necessarily. You see, some of them might of made more progress if they had of done something different. Sometimes doing the same old thing time and time again is just not wise. What you are actually doing is stagnating yourself because you want to do what others did.
Some people are in relationships where there is awful abuse whether emotional or physical or both, but it is a tradition so this is one reason why they stay, plus the abuser is most likely the provider. Some stay and end up in the hospital or even having to get mental counseling and some end up dead. Now, that can be the devastating reality of tradition.
Well, in order to be better, you have to do better. You have to be willing to step outside the box. Yeah, some might have something to say, but you got to rise up. Sometimes growth comes just from watching and learning from what happened in the past. Do we follow the same footsteps of the ones who were in dead end jobs, abusive relationships, or had no hope? What if your parent or parents weren’t there for you, then should you do the same? Hopefully, you would want to do better.
We must keep hope alive and pray for the courage and wisdom to do something different. What we can do is make our grandparents and great parents proud of us if they are not to proud or just stuck in their own and old ways.
Now, look at this. Abraham had to separate from his family. It didn’t stop there. He and his wife assumed one thing, but God showed them that it wasn’t to late. It’s never too late to change some things up, and do the unexpected.
May God Bless You All!
