Better yet, how can one sustain great love, to fuel the soul & be a god care-giver, when being bashed & abused by the parent? Oh, I am the rose that still clings fast-- to the heel that crushes it! blou

Hey Vegas, I can't stand Hallmark OR Lifetime channels! I find them much too whiny & somewhat depressing. Too much drama. I prefer comedy or action. Something well written & creative is nice. But, I have no time for TV or reading any more. Would LOVE to sit down & read a book! (I have movies I've never seen & a few novels, as well). I still have a kid at home w/ ADHD & an Oppositional Disorder that keeps me busy, too. I know I sound naive regarding love. But, I also know that there is more power in love than anything else I know of in this world. Unbelievable power. I'm growing up. Not jaded. Clint Eastwood said, "A man's got to know his limitations". My limitations have merely been tested to their fullest extent. However, I would never know how much I was capable of if I I didn't keep trying. Nor would I even want to harness that power called love, if it did not continue to amaze me daily. See, it's my human limitations that I am frustrated with--not love itself. My love is pure. My human nature is flawed. blou

If love is great enough, love will find a way.....sure. Perhaps you read too many romance novels or are always tuned in to the Hallmark/Lifetime Channels.

We can do things with love that we couldn't do with indifference. Love can often find a way when there doesn't seem to be one -- motivation can make a huge difference.

But love, great as it is, has its limits. Love does not cure dementia (or cancer or COPD or ... )

Why did you ever believe that love is enough? Well, we are kind of conditioned along those lines, aren't we? And it is a beautiful notion. Most of us would like to believe it and try to, until/unless we are personally up against its limitations.

If you love this abusive parent, you will want to see that he is taken care of. But if you love yourself you will do it from a distance. Love does not demand accepting abuse.
