I don't blame people who cut off their parents to do their iwn thing.
Most Nigerian parents are very insensitive especially the fathers, if you have a father that loves and support you, just hold them tight and Thank God.

Barely talk to my dad about anything. We used to be very close when I was a kid until the day he gave me a scar nobody can miss when they see me. He flogged me thinking I was lying only to find out later I was telling the truth. He never apologized. I love my mom but I limit what I share with her cos na man I be


This scar dey mess with my self esteem badly even till today. I've had women tell me without the scar, aesthetically, I would be perfect.

He sacrificed so much for me after loosing Mom at early age.
I pray I am able to show him enough gratitude in his lifetime.

Most Nigerian parents are very insensitive especially the fathers, if you have a father that loves and support you, just hold them tight and Thank God.

Two parallel lines
Don't get me wrong, there's no animosity between us. But our philosophy of life is different so most times we don't agree on so many things.

The good thing is we understand and respect each other's opinions

That's too harsh. Better you say, (they are fine!) No matter what you can't change the fact that they are your parents.

No time is too late. Grateful God you are mature now, MAKE THINGS STRAIGHT FOR YOURSELF.

Perfect... They're one of a kind. The support, prayers, love and care. I'll still love for them to be my parents if there's anything like another life..

Oh dear.

I can't imagine what your parents may have done to you for you to consider them dead, but whatever it is, I hope you find healing. 🙏
