There are many personality traits, both positive and negative. We are made up of a mixture of both, albeit some people have more negative than positive. I’m sure you can name a few of them.
So when you are dealing with an ambiguous loss regardless of the situation, does that make you worry more, or less about what people think of you?
You may well harbour your own feeling of guilt, especially if your loss is a result of parental, or family alienation as we like to call it, or any forced absence.
Whilst working on Absent, I have been meeting a lot of new people in order to get it launched successfully. While explaining the platform my own situation will usually come up in explaining to people why the world needs this. Now they have all been extremely nice people, but do I wonder what they think about me after the meeting has ended.
Do I wonder if when they go home after work and their husband or wife asks ‘how was your day darling?’ , and they say ‘not bad, met a guy with a fantastic, brilliant, wonderful concept that is going to change the world ( I’m pretty sure that’s what they’ll say ), but maybe there’s a reason why he hasn’t seen his kids? Maybe this nice guy image is all an act.
Honestly, yes I do.
Check out the link above for one way of addressing the issue, if, like me, you do tend to worry a little too much.
But what if people are spreading vicious and malicious rumours about you? This statement shows the definition of defamation which of course is split into slander and libel.
I wonder what the legal repercussions are of doing this, and if any legal professional out there could help us out that would be great. Please specify what country you represent also.
Hate crimes are a crime motivated by racial, sexual, or other prejudice, typically one involving violence or abuse, and when we hear the term hate crime, we indeed think of acts of racism or because of sexual orientation. But if we split the two words, and analyse them, parental, or family alienation fits the term.
- Hate – feel intense dislike for.
- Crime – an action or omission which constitutes an offence and is punishable by law.
Another one for the legal beagles I think.
Again, does thinking this way actually help or not. Justifying to yourself that what is happening to you as nearly as bad as the sickening violence that certain groups have to endear.
Please don’t think I am comparing racism with parental alienation because I am not. However, there must be repercussions for people who commit parental alienation. If not, then the trend will not only continue but escalate.
If it is allowed to escalate, then what will society come to?
