Let me tell you the story.
Parents and their children. Misterious bond. We love each other so much but yet we kids can’t wait to go away from them. It’s like their love is choking us. They think that they have always the right solution for our problems. That they know what is the best for us. Sometimes our parents are right, but sometimes they are wrong. We are trying to became an adult. Grown-up who can make decisions on his own, who can live from their salary and who can create a new family. Don’t forget that THAT is exactly who are parents are.
Grownups who are dealing with their problems, who are dealing with real world everyday. Sometimes we don’t know to appreciate them and their effort. But sometimes they are expecting too much from us. Then we need to lay somewhere between respect for our parents and something that we want to do with our lives.
It’s good to make compromises. If you have straight A’s in school and you want new mobile or to go on vacation with friends you should tell your parents that you worked hard whole year and that you would love to be relaxed or let’s say awarded for some time. Be good and fight for yourself but still respect your parents and everything will be fine.
„There is more to a boy than what his mother sees. There is more to a boy then what his father dreams. Inside every boy lies a heart that beats. And sometimes it screams, refusing to take defeat. And sometimes his father's dreams aren't big enough, and sometimes his mother's vision isn't long enough. And sometimes the boy has to dream his own dreams and break through the clouds with his own sunbeams.”
― Ben Behunin, Remembering Isaac: The Wise and Joyful Potter of Niederbipp
“Parents rarely let go of their children, so children let go of them.
They move on. They move away.
The moments that used to define them are covered by
moments of their own accomplishments.
It is not until much later, that
their stories and all their accomplishments, sit atop the stories
of their mothers and fathers, stones upon stones,
beneath the water of their lives.”
― Paulo Coelho
At the end, remember: We grew up thinking out parents don’t understand our struggles, but the truth is they made sure we never felt theirs.
