I wanted to share with you today my thoughts about one amazing story. I have always thought that it couldn’t be anything more humiliating than lack of control over your body, over that what we say loudly or expressing ourselves without control. The story of a man who just wanted to look after his own daughter change my mind completely.
They were young, they had troubles, they were drug users. Nothing of that can lead to have a child, but this exactly happened. After a time they split up, she drawn into drug addiction, he wanted help, but she has rejecting that. She couldn’t raise a child as the drugs were stronger. Court… Questions… What the judge will decide? And then after when the judge suppose to reveal the verdict about the future of a lovely girl, he direct the question to the grandfather of the girl about what he suppose to do? Send a girl home with him or send a girl home with her father? How dare he? He is a judge! It is obvious that grandfather loves his daughter and would be happy to look after her, while her mother fights with the addiction. But he desperately wants to keep her with him… And then… Impossible become possible. He won, he takes her home!
Under the umbrella of this story is another story. The judge know the grandfather, he save his life when they were young. He knew that his answer will be the best solution for girl, he trust him totally this time as when he put his life into his hands.
The author of the story use a perfect citation to this story:
“Sometimes our inability to control our instincts gives us a level of courage we don’t normally have.” -Jason Whitlock
Why do I think it is perfect? Well, what if he wouldn’t exposed his feelings and instincts out that day in court? Maybe grandfather said something else?
As I mentioned at the beginning, now I have change my mind and I don’t think anymore that our inability of controlling ourselves is humiliating, because it is not 🙂
