I make so many mistakes in life, that sometimes it feels as if I cannot teach my daughters much. But I would teach them to never love cruelty. To never love pain. Whether it is mental (emotional) pain, or physical pain; whether it is inflicting it, or taking it. I have tolerated pain because I’ve loved it, and I have inflicted more cruelty than I care to admit. I learned my lesson. That is perhaps why I can teach this well.It is perhaps the most important lesson I can teach them.
