Can someone's death set you free? - See how people are waiting for the passing of their own parents

Hearing someone mourning the passing of a person that they are close to can be heartbreaking and you might end up finding your face covered with tears because there is nothing as emotional as losing a soul.

I was surprised to learn that there are people who find joy in losing their immediate family members which includes parents. I am not going to judge them because I do not know anything about their backgrounds and I do not know what they have been put through, but seeing the number of people who made this confession, I realized that there are many of us out there who are counting on someone's death for their freedom.

Yesterday was the 30th of September, which is a day that a lady named Simangela admires for being the day that her father passed away. This lady says her father died in 2010 and her wish is that he could rise from the death and die again. A lady who is known as Nolwazi said she woke up with the same feeling for her father and she even told herself that she will never attend his funeral. Someone also confessed that she is patiently waiting for the death of her father so that her mother and siblings can have a peaceful life.

Someone named Tshegofatso said he does not drink alcohol, but the day that his father dies is the day that he will host a big party with lots of alcohol just to celebrate that he will not have to deal with him again. There is a lady who felt like Tshegofatso was talking on her behalf because she says she does not see herself attending her mother's funeral. Tshegofatso told a guy with the same issue that some problems are deeper and can only be solved through death.

A lady who calls herself Hlubikazi said she was even drunk at her father's funeral in 2017 and she did not even care because he made her life a living hell.


It is clear that some people have suffered at the hands of their parents, but forgiveness is always the right path to your freedom. Instead of wishing death upon someone, we are grown enough to relocate and live our own lives somewhere else. I have seen siblings coming together to build themselves a house so that they could move away from their abusive fathers and it worked out well for them.
