From my dad:<br />
Respect women<br />
Control your temper<br />
Never lay your hands on men unless they hit you first<br />
Never lay your hands on women and children EVER<br />
Never believe one side of the story, always believe in doubt<br />
Control your libido<br />
Work before play<br />
Always say thank you and please<br />
Never call a women sexy or hot, call her beautiful and stunning.<br />
Never let anyone come between you and what you love<br />
There is no true religion.<br />
From my mom:<br />
Be more responsible<br />
Cleanliness is next to manliness<br />
Modesty is what makes men and women beautiful<br />
Watch the cussing<br />
Be proud of yourself, always<br />
You're better than everyone else<br />
Be the kind of man you'd want your sister to be with<br />
Family comes first<br />
Do not be a pervert. Lower your gaze, control your desires, and watch yourself.
Awesome. I love this.
Thank you miss
I see my comment is gone.
I sure didn't delete it, I was actually waiting for your reply.
EP keeps deleting my replies. Oh well....
We could discuss this by message if you want, like gentlemen.
Sure... PM me.
Aww such a gentleman and very wise parents
Thank you so much, I appreciate it 😊
You had a set of incredible parents....you lucked out not everyone did..this world would be a better place if all parents were like that. I was lucky too...Thank God
We were both blessed 🙏 let's hope everyone else will
Marry me? :)
Hahahahahaha that's so nice 😊
Welcome to the world of hypocrisy, rhetoric used as fallacy tool and pretension that also make this world artificial.
Anyone with a bit of critical thinking will see a bunch of contradictions in there.
Call me cynic if you want, but there are to me, too many irrationalities and contradictions to make it plausible and worth commenting.
And, what is terrible is that people buy into it :( which actually confirm completely some of my above response
I can't blame you if you think I'm a hypocrite, since you can't really tell what kind of a person I am until you've seen and talked to me. Words are words, and can be lies but as far as I know, all my words are true and that's enough for me.
That was amazing :)
"you either learn from them or you become them". My values and beliefs are my own because I didn't want them to be like my mums.
I learned a lot of "what-not-to-do" parenting and life skills from my Mother. However, I got my views on race, religion, sexual orientation, etc. from my Dad. He was open minded and accepting of everyone; just a real gentleman. He always taught me that there are only two kind of people in this world; people who are acting like idiots and those who aren't (and we all fall into that former category once in while). So, try your best to be in the latter group and be understanding and forgiving of those who are acting stupid. I figured between that and trying hard everyday to be the person my dog thinks I am, I have the betterment of self thing covered.
50%...what I didn't pick up I end up regretting.
Probably 50% the remainder from my grandmother.
when i was younger i would have said none now i am older and wiser ,,, i think i am my dad ,,,
A lot of values, I'm not a spiritual person at all but my parents are. Mostly I get my values from them and I wouldn't trade them, I feel like it has made me into a sincere person who can show empathy for others.
believe in god always
Almost all of them.
Not to say my parents were failures, but I learned to do the exact opposite on so many things to not walk in their footsteps and make those same mistakes.
A lot. My parents were not educated so they had some pretty odd beliefs. I was able to take what I think was the best of them and add my own.
what did they teach you?
the pregnant barefoot thing. Man ruled the world. very conservative..didn't understand gifted concept...limited my beliefs to conventional roles on what I could do..
Almost all of them, but more than half are influenced by them not inherited. In other words, I went the opposite direction in many cases.
I dunno. I certainly picked up "being a dîck" from my dad.
99% inherited, 1% adjusted as per the current times.
Most of them.
0%. <br />
They did not personify, exemplify, explain, or teach any good values or beliefs whatsoever. I reject that, and discovered and developed good values and beliefs of my own, and dreams also, although those dreams have been squashed, strangulated, and never come to fruition.
ZERO----- I have more than they do!
