Veteran journalist Louis Otieno’s son, Silas Miami recently sparked reactions on social media after hitting out at his ailing mother, whom he termed abusive.
Taking to his Twitter page, he made a statement indicating that his mother was sick, however, noting that he learnt of her ailment through a third party.
Miami went ahead to blast his mother claiming that she is too proud to tell him she is unwell due to their troubled relationship.
“I’m told my abusive mother is very unwell. But this information was relayed to me by a third party because she is too proud to reach out herself. Even at death’s door, she refuses to swallow it and apologize that is what narcissism looks like. Sending thoughts and prayers,” wrote Miami.
He added that he received advice from friends urging him to keep their family feud off social media and visit her ailing mother, however, stating that he will not take any advice in light to his relationship with his parents.
“I have woken up to so many of you telling me to be the bigger person to forgive to go to her. I just want to thank those people so much: they’re made the work of blocking them so much easier for me. I will only be accepting advice about reconciling with my abusers,” he added.
In a separate post, Miami who recently came out as gay said the pain he went through at the hands of his biological mum cannot be erased, further urging people not to excuse abusive parents.
“If you’re a survivor of narcissistic abuse and you’re following the wild happenings over here, I need you to know that I see you, your pain is valid. I believe you. And you’re going to be just fine. You deserved better and you owe nothing to those who harmed you. You are loved
“I really want to know where people purchase the nerve, cheek and gumption to speak to me as they know me personally. Where is the source of this audacity? To give a stranger ‘advice’ on their pain with such… forwardness?”
