There was a lot of tension in my parent’s home. It hovered over every meal and family gathering like the cloud over the “Pig Pen” Peanuts comic character. But it wasn’t comical, not for us kids. We couldn’t wait for the day we could leave home.
If there is something causing tension in your family, I suggest you find the cause and address it. Tension in the home is like stretching a rubber band. Sooner or later, if the tension isn’t released, it will snap, and the one to be hurt by it will likely be you.
