i hate it when people make excuses for their bad actions and literally DO NOT own up to it or acknowledge when they're in the wrong. now, don't get wrong, there is a different between excuses and reasons.
excuse - "my father wasn't there for me so it's okay for me not to be there for my children"
reason - "i was wrong for neglecting my children. i grew up without a father, so i don't really know how to be a good father because i didn't have a role model to show me. either way, that doesn't account for my absence." excuse - "people i've been with in the past have cheated on me, so it's okay for me to have an affair."
reason - "although i've been cheated on in the past, it still doesn't make up for me cheating on my spouse. that was my choice, and it wasn't right of me." excuse - "i was abused by my parents when i was a child, so it's okay for me to beat my children."
reason - "my parents beat me all throughout the house when i was a kid, but it still doesn't give me the right to put that type of pain onto my children. although I've never seen the example of good parents, I should've broken the cycle and protected my children, rather than harm them." just because something has been done to you does not give you the right to go and do it to somebody else.
