there’s a very important moment in our lives when we come to a harsh realization.
our parents aren’t Gods. instead, they’re just people, doing their best like everyone else.
and it is an extremely transformative experience. it’s a paradigm shift.
the world, as we know it suddenly becomes a little bit bigger — and our parents’ words suddenly become a little less be-all & end-all.
but there is power in this moment. it means it’s our turn.
we can now be gods for our parents. we can now, finally, after all their years of hard work, of building the best life for us that they knew how– we can now begin to repay truly them by returning the favor.
and they might resist. and that’s OK. but, remember, they’re just people, doing their best. so, push on. and let that moment be the beginning of something beautiful.
