|Dave loved the song playing, "I Did It My Way" and he played it often. Let the memory of Dave be with us forever. God, please take care of my man.|
This memorial website was created in memory of my beloved, eternal soulmate, David Benning, 42, born on August 14, 1973 and passed away on March 4, 2016. I will remember him forever.
"Thanksgiving was a sad day. I missed our Thanksgiving Eve routine and having you at dinner. I drove around in the evening, alone and completely lost. I am not recovering from any of this."
"Six months. Still painful. Still suffering.
I will stop missing you, Dave, when I am with you."
1. You're too sensitive!
2. That's life!
3. Stop crying!
4. Because I said so!
5. Why can't you be more like...(sibling, cousin, etc)
What you will notice all of these phrases have in common is they all disregard, attack or work to shut down the emotional center of a child, thus suppressing and passively discouraging the child from developing healthy pathways and connections from the logical part of their brain/being to the emotional part of their brain/being. Anything less than a healthy connection mentally and emotionally (which is exactly what ‘psychological’ is: mental + emotional state of a person) is indeed a recipe for damage, or at the least an imbalance within the growing individual.
Human beings are not meant to be robots! So why, to the most innocent, dynamic, sensitive creatures: children— do we repetitively program them with psychologically limiting and damaging demands and statements in their times of rebellion, distress or grief? Children need patience, wisdom and opportunity for growth from the adults in their life, and whether or not they have that will depend solely on how adults choose to treat them and teach them to relate to their ever-changing psychological states.
Dave never had a chance."
