Conditions of Use
Parents (mum & dad) are the first people we open our eyes to see in this world. They introduce us to Humanity and keep our world safe. We grow and believe in them, trust them unconditionally, and copy them blindly. After all, they are our trainers and coaches. They taught us everything they know. They simply draw our world’s borders and widen its seas. And we grow…until we discover that we can do so many things alone, now, without their help. We became taller and older. We can walk alone and hold our apartment’s keys. We know how to address other people and have acquired more social and physical skills. We realize that we can take it from here and we start pushing them out of our daily schedule. We know what to do and when. We can think independently and make our own decisions. Life is alright and not very hard to deal with, so why are they so protective and worried about us? And more we know farther we push them. Why do they still insist to give us advice and aware us from the future? Don’t they know by now that we can take it from here? What do they want from us? Let us live our lives as we like; didn’t they live theirs? Can you believe those two? Don’t they see yet that we’re ready to fly alone? And more questions we share asking with our peers. “You won’t understand your parents, nor appreciate them until you become one.” It’s indeed a very nice saying that all parents around the globe enjoy repeating. They think very high of themselves and believe that they were heroes. Well, give us sometimes and we’ll show them who the heroes are.
All of the above was an excerpt taken from my life chapter book. These thoughts started in my adolescence and never stopped. Now all that I can add as a mother is, “Yes, this saying makes sense”.
