Would you help them? Take them in and let them live with you? No matter what they did to you?

I accidently ran across this video of an attorney who lost his wife to brain cancer and came to DC to see his daughter who refused him. We don’t know what happened between he and his daughter but would you take him in?

I’d never let my parents be homeless so of course i’d take them in. But my parents are great. If they abused me, probably not, but who knows. At the end of the day many people love their parents regardless of how horrible they are. Maybe the guilt would just force me to find them a place to live.

As complex as my relationship with my mother has been, I know part of my life’s work will be taking care of her as she ages. I owe everything to her. 

She’s been my greatest support, and greatest adversary. That sounds weird, but I mean it in the best way. 

In general, I can’t say no matter what. I just don’t know. 

Reminds me of The Glass Castle.

Based on the way they have treated me I would let them live with me. If they had been mean to me I would offer to help them set up a tiny home or park model. I have to be someone I can be proud of.

Depends on how old they are. If they’re like 75+, then yes, no matter what. They’re probably too old by then to physically screw with me.

If they’re like 50, I’d probably let them stay like a year to find a job, then it’s out of my house.

I would take my mother in no matter what. She has so much Taurus you cant get her to do a damn thing though. She still lives in the house we grew up in and just wont budge. She is pushing 80…and her saying is…..  ‘I will do it my damn self’ …..ugggg you should see her with her pace maker mowing the lawn. ….. makes me crazy. My mother was a piece of work when she was young but she worked so hard to make up for all that….and she treated my kids like royalty. They love her so much…. absolutely adore her. She is queen to my sons. (they have NO idea how she was when she was in her 20’s and 30’s and I don’t have any plans of ruining their image of her)

My sisters have all moved away. And, they wont help her or talk to her.

She left me when I was a baby and my grandmother pretty much raised me till age 8…..but my grandmother loved her dearly and if I didn’t love her (which I do) I would do it to honor my grandmother who took such good care of me.

My dad….. I don’t know how I would do it. But, I would do something. I loved his mother too….so….he sure wouldn’t deserve it. But, I would do something.

My parents? Absolutely. No question. 

But I cant judge this situation. Who knows what happened between them?

As they are, 100 percent absolutely. They’re great.

 

If they were abusive, I don’t know. Maybe, maybe not.

i would take them in no question. Even if i were brought up with abusive, cruel parents, or if one of them were, i’d still do it. I think because i have capricorn, my responsibility to them is great. It would kill me if i didnt. And i love them very much too.

As for the video, there’s so many scenerios that could have happened between him and his daughter that to her is unforgiving. Who knows. Taking the route of being an Attorney/Lawyer for 33 years, who knows what transpired all those years and what cases he took too. It’s like a story that should be told in book 🙂
