This article should go without saying!
If you’re in a dispute, disagreement, or quarrel with someone, THE CHILDREN ARE OFF LIMITS! Or at least they should be anyway.
Lately, whether it’s through life’s experiences, on television, or social media; we’ve been seeing innocent children being brought up in circumstances that have nothing to do with them.
For one, you’re in a quarrel with one particular person, not their entire family. Therefore, whether it’s family, friend, business, or foe; you cannot mention the name [s] of purely innocent and harmless children in any situation. They have NOTHING to do with whatever “grown folks” may be going through.
NOWWWWWW, let’s just say that lines have been crossed. Do you believe that there is a way to come re-build a relationship afterward?
In some instances some say, “Well, now that you’ve mentioned my child I’ll never be able to get pass it.” In fact, people will forget what the “initial” reasoning for the argument was about after certain lines are crossed.
Take the situation between Jay Z and Kanye West. In a recent interview, Jay Z spoke out “how” and “why” their relationship has now gone sour. The mogul stated that he and Kanye have argued LOTS of times in the past, made up, and keep things moving. But with the newest situation, things are different! A line has been crossed, and the only way to reconciliation is if a sit down “conversation” happens.
“But what really hurt me was, you can’t bring my kid or my wife into it. Kanye’s my little brother. He’s talked about me 100 times. He made a song called, ‘Big Brother.’ We’ve gotten past bigger issues. But you brought my family into it, now it’s a problem with me. That’s a real, real problem. And he knows it’s a problem.”
Once you become a parent, nothing else in the world can top that feeling or natural instinct to protect what’s YOURS!
People must remember that celebrities are human too, they have real life issues just like the rest of us. However, their issues are often times blown out of proportion due to their status.
Point blank, no matter the length of when your relationship and/or bond was formed, talking about a persons child are ground for THE END ALL.
Jay Z went on to say:
“I know he knows, because we’ve never let this much space go between one of our disagreements, and we’ve had many because that’s who we are. That’s what I like about him. He’s an honest person, he’s open and he’ll say things and he’s wrong a lot of times, and he’ll confront it.”
But that’s NO EXCUSE!
Realistically, people who form strong bonds and have close tight knit relationships already know what lines not to cross— WITHOUT QUESTION! But sometimes a person can get so caught up in his/her feelings that they forget what’s really important, which should be the sanctity of the relationship at hand.
We think it’s fair to say that offering an apology would be the first step on the road to reconciliation, but we’re also certain that the relationship will NEVER be the same.
Now as far as Jay Z and Kanye West are concerned, let’s hope that they can squash their beef so that we can anticipate at “Watch The Throne 2” tour in the near future.
