I almost cried watching this documentary about abandoned children. How could you watch this and not have it touch your heart?
The link above is a tiny girl who doesn’t know her father and probably never will. I am not judging anyone, but creating a life and not taking care of it doesn’t make you a man. It makes you a failure as a human being. The sad part is that this gentleman has done this with other women, and that makes it even worse. Once is a mistake, and the second time is evil.
Listen, people. If you act as though you have no responsibilities toward others, you will never feel the joy that human relationships can provide you. It is not easy to have a relationship but the rewards of one far exceed the costs and sufferings of that relationship.
Men, we have to do better. We can’t allow children to not have parents. We can’t walk away from our responsibilities because we choose to make poor choices. We can’t take the easy road when it only leads to the suffering and heartache of countless others. It is the height of irresponsibility to only define your life in terms of what benefits you. Even if your upbringing was horrible, that is no reason to make the next generation suffer. We have to be the buffer of love and healing that the world needs and not pass our traumas onto others. That is what being a man is.
