The Peace Maker

The relation between my parents deteriorated. It went very bad. I felt responsible for it. So I tried to bring peace, once again. Sure, I felt sad when I saw my father taking all his clothes from the shelves and leaving home. I felt angry against everything; my work, my boss, my financial situation, myself.
I love personal development material. Hopefully, I once studied the relationship between men and women. I remember some of the material from "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus", a work from Dr. John Gray. That helped me a lot. I tried to apply what I've learned on my parents.
So I spoke to each of them individually. I lied to both of them. It was the solution.
Now, the tension has gone away. I'm happy that I managed to keep them together, even for a while. However, I'm still alert.
It was another lesson of patience, love and sacrifice.
