Last week my mother got sick but I did not took care of her.I don't even mind her coz I felt so bad.They scolded me without any reason at all thus I got so angry.The fact that in my profession I took care of those who are in need,those who are sick but when it comes to my family,I feel like I'm not caring at all.But really,it's not that I don't care,it's only because my anger dominate at that time.I'm so bad!

Aww... that is sad. I a sure if I were in your position, I may have done the same! Sorry for the late reply. How is your mum feeling now? I am sure you can find ways to make it up to her. Has your anger faded? Has the argument and discontent in that incident been resolved? I sure hope it does. Cos in a family, there is no such thing as a grudge.

That is good to hear my friend. Well, do treat her nicer. She is afterall, your mum. And no one else is able to take her place! Be nice to her whenever you can. For life only happens once. Once it is no longer, there will be no chance to make up for it.

Well thats why its saying Anger is worst enemy of Human and it did not let u think rationally. I wont say u r bad as u not only realize it but with courage discuss it here. All i would say control ur anger and do care for them, if they scold u, its Ok, U do ur job/responsibilty. and mothers are really very important and u should take care of her and trust me, its never too late wish u all the best take care

Bestie, Nice to see your discussion again. Sometimes situations make people act stragly or wierd. In your case as you told anger was dominating you, but there is one thing which will dominate everything. Thats Love. As to our family we will be with them for a long long time so we dont realize this love inside us. As its your profession to take care of others, it dosent meens you are not taking care of them. It only require a small thought how much you love your family how much you love your mother. I know you are not a bad person, so my suggestion is in future, whatever your mother or your parents say to you, try to calm down the anger not to drag it further. Always keep loving your family as they are the one who gona be with you in your bad times. So keep loving your family. I know you are a good person. I Say 'YOU ARE NOT BAD, YOU ANGER IS TOO BAD.' Take care of yourself and your family. Have a nice and bright day.. Regards, Jnk3dfx.

My dear, you should not take the scolding of your parents too personal. Parents want nothing but the best for their children and in the process they tend to be dominating at times. But I tell, it is all for your own good and you should rather be happy because your parent are minding you. So I must say you really are bad when you ignored your sick Mom. You should have set aside your ill feelings and took care of her to show your love and care but you did not. So sorry Bestie, I found you really bad in that particular moment. Anyway, it's not yet late...you can still make up.

it's not that you were not caring and you're not a bad person at all, maybe it was just you were at the peak of your emotion... but since you thought that what you did is wrong and you are really sorry for what you did, you just have to make up with your mom and family... i bet they would love to see you showing your love to them...

Well, i understand why you didn't take care of your mom when she was seek..I know that when we feel bad and hurt we don't care at all to that person.. But if I am in your situation, no matter I hate my mom still i will take good care for her since I know that she need me and beside I know that I've cause her so much trouble and I had also hurt her so many times already.. The pain that I've cause to her isn't the same the pain that she cause me.. And it is the time for me to repay all of the sacrifices she had done for me when i was still a baby until now.
