The Curse of Resentment

Resentment defined: aggrieved feelings caused by a sense of having been badly treated.  Aggrieved defined: to cause somebody pain, trouble, or distress (Encarta Dictionary)

Resentment of the father is a curse with dire reckoning.  Nothing can compare to it as a generator of societal evil.  Fathers need to be present in their children’s lives to discipline, show memorable investments of time, and to always be a dependable resource.   Beyond a mother’s love, nothing makes a greater and longer lasting impression on a child.  Nothing comes close to comparing with it when absent as motivator of destructive behavior lasting long term.  Whereas no discipline, no investment of time, no dependability cast a very long shadow of destructiveness, its opposite greatly affirms the offspring and gives deep chords of peace.   Fatherhood properly fulfilled is an essential ingredient for societal health and individual happiness.
