I was taught to respect people
I was taught not blame others and accept responsibility
I was taught to be honest
I was taught to be a good person
I was taught to not hit people or be physically violent
I learned to be quiet when I should of spoke up
I learned to hide
I learned to repress my emotions
I learned to be angry
I learned how to be someone I wasn’t to cope
I learned the effects of alcohol
I learned how to live sober
I learned who he really is
While growing up I was taught how to do the above and I learned from the person who taught me is none of what he teaches or preaches. I am confused at how I can practice and learn such important values in life and the person who taught me doesn’t accept and/or follow.
How is that possible? Was he trying to teach me how to not be like him?
