Op, I can tell you from personal experience, that 2 wrongs dont make a right.
However, in my case, I really enjoy paying back the idiocy of my parents, with the best method possible.
They werent good, or loving, or nurturing, or hell, even supportive, ever.
They wouldnt help me when i was going to college, they trash talked me when i got married to a girl they didnt like, they trash talked her when we
broke up, blaming all worlds ills on her, like they were saints, and she was somehow far less worthy than them.
They now pay for it every single day of their lives, as i ignore their calls, return their presents, flat out ignore them when i take the kids to see
them on rare occasions, mostly just holidays.
Hell i havent seen or talked to my father in years, and couldnt be happier.
If they dont wanna act like parents, or treat me and mine with the respect we deserve, it is ok.
I will simply follow Einsteins advice on the subject, and not participate in any activity I do not agree with.
They are never going to admit they were wrong, nor will they even apologize. So I will simply treat them with the same amount of acknowledgement they
treat their many failings with, none.
They hurt, they suffer, and they have at times even begged for me to talk with them, I ask them to own up to what happened when I was a kid, them
abandoning us, letting us starve so their girl friends and boyfriends could eat steak etc.... They try to tell me I dont understand. I am a parent ,
I would never treat my children this way, I do understand, they are selfish, uncaring SOBs. So I feel no pity, nor could I care, let the die knowing
they pissed away their childs love, all because they cant admit to being POS parents, I really dont care, the ball is and has been in their court for
years, they dont enjoy playing the game they started,
It isnt the ideal situation, but it is what I would call making the best of a bad scenario.
Just remember though, when one sets out for revenge, one should dig 2 graves first, because it often ends in both sides losing more than either had
planned from the start.
